Country Mouse - Sunshine and Roses...

...except not all the time. I've really enjoyed doing this blog with City Mouse because it makes me think of all the good things about my small town instead of dwelling on all the things I miss. But this week I had to draw the line. My son loves Oreo ice cream cake for his birthday and because I didn't plan ahead and buy them at Wal-Mart the last time I was in Lewiston (it's 75 miles away), I had to buy the Oreos at the local grocery store. And do you know how much one package cost?

= $4.65! So not crescent fresh.

City Mouse - The Beach

We finally made it to the beach!

It was a little different than Country Mouse's Beach.

Just a tiny bit more crowded.

And it definitely had more sea lions.

No wild turkeys though.

City Mouse - Gymnastics

Country Mouse has really thrown down the gauntlet lately! I have to stop forgetting to bring my camera with me. How can I be in California and no beach pictures?? I'll hopefully rectify that before the summer is out.

Liv has always wanted to learn how to do a cartwheel, so this summer I signed her up for gymnastics at a club about 5 minutes down the road from us.

She'd been to one or two classes back in Virginia, but that facility was nothing like the one she goes to now. I imagine Olympians could train at this place. I should have taken a pic of all the trophies on the walls.

Although Liv won't be an olympian, (she still can't do a cartwheel), she's having a great time and learning a lot.
