In California

This is Mt  Bachelor from the air.. had an uneventful trip...  except my phone kept telling me the flight was cancelled..  weird

Spending time with family at the Lavender festival

 Oops Sacia caught me stealing oranges at the edge of an orchard..
Went to the Sketcher's outlet store...that was one HUGE warehouse... and the retail store was big too!!!  with only one brand of shoe!!  These are SO comfortable and have that foam gel in the shoe bed...  and light too.

Reading "What does the Fox say?"  to Chloe!!!!

Ooma and Chloe making candy....  it was yummy!!!

Then today Chloe had her safety swim class... where they learn to stay afloat and get to the edge of the pool should they fall in.  There had so many drownings in the community of Yucaipa of toddlers, that one mother opened her pool for classes.  Chloe is doing really well, this was her 2nd class, the 1st one she spent a lot of the time crying....  now she can get to the side of the pool and climb out!!!  But she still needs to hold breathe longer and learn to kick her feet to propel her forward better... BUT she is no longer so frightened of the water and the thought of her face being in water.  Many of the kids were just terrified.... some even younger than Chloe's 3 1/2 years...  It is a good thing for the community, and more mothers should do the same.  Water safety should be a big deal in So Cal....
Having a good time, driving back with them on Friday....
Take Care & God Bless
