Today was a beautiful day. Oliver and Mommy hung out at home for a bit, then he played with Grammie and Grandpa while Mommy took a Y break. Oliver and Grammie were enjoying the weather outside when Mommy came back.
Mommy and Oliver had some books to pick up at the library and of course Oliver had to stop off at the doll house. He asks a lot of questions in the library and really wants to know why we have to be so quiet. It is hard to explain to an almost 4 year old, but Mommy tries. He loves libraries.
After the library Mommy and Oliver took a drive along HWY 101 to Solana Beach. We've had a Groupon for the Solana Beach Coffee Company for a while. So we decided to go there and eat lunch. We took our sandwiches to Tide Park and ate at a picnic table. Then we made our way down to the beach. Mommy sat, while Oliver played for a bit. We walked a little bit, Mommy put her feet in the water, and then we made our way back to the top of the cliff. Oliver was amazing on the stairs. He is such a little adventurer! On our way back we stopped at The Black Sheep, a yarn shop in downtown Encinitas. Mommy wanted to check out the beads that were advertised on the sign, but they didn't have any- at least any that we could see! But all the yarn was so pretty. It makes Mommy want to learn how to knit. Oliver liked looking at everything too!
We had a great evening together. Oliver was excited to have Grammie and Grandpa stop by for a bit. He didn't want them to leave! Mommy liked that Grammie kept pulling weeds in the backyard. Nice!
Saturdays are always pretty wonderful!
Mommy took tons of pictures today. "Documenting."

Grammie's roses are so pretty.
We played "I Spy" for a bit with the doll house. The
little boy in the corner was helping us. Cute.
"I Spy" the Mona Lisa. Mommy wants to go back to
Paris some day and see the Mona Lisa again.
"I Spy" a painting from Goodnight Moon. Do you?
Encinitas. Encinitas and the beach are nice, but
Escondido feels more like home.
Cool gumball machine at the Coffee Shop.
Oliver liked this seat.
Mommy thought this was cute.
The customer service was awesome at the Coffee Shop.

A video of the ocean for everyone. (Especially our
friends who don't live near the ocean.) The sound is so peaceful.
Mommy and smug little Oliver
The Black Sheep in Encinitas (Mommy likes
the name-hmmm....) They advertised beads
But all we saw was beautiful yarn.
So beautifully displayed. (Mommy loves all the colors,
she was drawn to most of the deep reds..for some reason.)
Oliver liked touching all of the yarn. They have some
neat classes offered there too.
