Back to the Blog

Yes, it has been nearly 5 months since our last blog post. No, I don't have any great excuses. I kept meaning to update it but then I felt overwhelmed by all of the stuff I missed and think I should write about. So I am just going to go forward from today. Maybe I'll catch up on the older stuff later... and maybe I won't.

This morning we went to the Tanaka Farms pumpkin patch with some friends. I have known this place existed, but I had no idea how huge it was! We took a wagon ride around the farm and over to the pumpkin patch. Isaac loves tractors, so he was excited to ride on the wagon being pulled by a big tractor.

Inside the tents - another tractor! And pumpkins.

The ride back took us through all the fields and Isaac enjoyed checking out the scenery.

In other news, the A/C in our car broke this week. It was cool and rainy the day that it happened so I didn't think it would be a big deal. But then yesterday it was 85 and today it was close to 90 and Isaac and I were being cooked! I didn't know if I could be without a car and get to & from the mechanic to pick it up, since Charlie is in China right now and our other car is sitting in the parking lot at LAX. Luckily I have known my mechanic for years (way back to the days of my old Corolla), so he offered to give me a loaner car. And here it is:

A 1995 Chrysler Lebaron. After sitting on the shredded driver's seat, with my hands literally sticking to the steering wheel, listening to all sorts of rattling, and praying the roof didn't blow off on the drive home, I have never been so grateful for our Acura!

I love the picture of you and Isaac w/ the sunlight peeping in!

Nice loaner. I hope you get your car back soon! Let me know if you need some help or anything else.

Sweet ride!! Our mechanic isn't nearly as cool as yours- only the kids had a sweet ride (the BOB) last week when our car was in the shop. :)
Isaac sure is a handsome little man- I love the pictures!

I still think that loner is better than the Corolla. It least we had cars!!!! I hope life is great for you Carrie. Isaac sure is a good looking kid.

Sorry to hear about your car. You never know how wonderful small and simple things are until they are gone! The pumpkin patch ride looks fun! I'm glad Charlie is home from China. Hopefully he can stick around for a while. Chris is out of town 3 days this week and 3 next week. Blah!!!
