After two days of organizing and building another storage cabinet for the garage we decided we needed a break!  Actually, our son really needed to get out.  He has been so patient during all of this organizing and moving and building.  Those of you who live in Northern California, as we do,  know that houses aren’t very big, they don’t come with basements and if you are one of the lucky few with a garage it’s basically a storage room (nobody parks in their garages).  So anyways, we spend a lot of time moving things and reorganizing to make the space not so cramped.

So it was a beautiful day in Northern California on Sunday, after a week of wet weather, so we decided to head to the redwoods.  It’s so beautiful out there, especially after the rain, it’s like everything is taking a big drink.  So we had a wonderful relaxing day with the kids.  Ryder loved all the big trees and really was dissappointed we didn’t see any “animal creatures”  especially an owl.  He really wanted to see an owl.  Saige slept in the moby wrap the entire time.

 Now I’m rejuvinated and ready to tackle the cottage (my sewing space).
