The Sunday Salon: Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. The Hub had a hard time deciding what to do today so I suggested that we hit Descanso Gardens and then go for pizza. He thought that sounded pretty good so that’s what we did.

The ground was slanted in this shot. I swear!

The kids seemed to enjoy the walk. We did too but I spent most of Saturday night awake (long story) and was dragging a bit, but it was good to get out.

It was sort of a gloomy day, so this flower really stood out.

We walked all over and took a train ride too. It was very nice but now I need a nap! Especially after the large pizza we devoured.

No nap for me though. When I got home I had to dye some rags emerald green (for the show) and the gloves I used did not save my hands which are a lovely shade of green. I look like a freak!

Other than that, I am almost done with My Cousin Rachel. I love it!

  1. Great pictures, especially the one with the flower! It's good that you had the excuse of slanted ground on the first one – my pictures are ALWAYS slanted, and it's usually not the ground at fault! :–)

  2. Hey, your son doesn't look too reluctant to have his picture taken for a change! It looks like y'all had a wonderful Father's Day. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Rhapsody – Haha!! It's happened to me before too but this time it really was the landscaping.

    Lezlie – Thanks!

    Kathy – I know! I can't believe he agreed to have his picture taken. The planets must have been aligned or something.

  4. It looks like you and your family had a fun day! Thank you for sharing the photos with us. Have a great week!

  5. Cute, cute, cute pics!! Looks like you guys had a wonderful Father's Day! And that picture of the flower is gorgeous 🙂

  6. Great pictures,the gardens look beautiful! Hope that you're not dealing with insomnia..didn't that happen to you a week or two ago and you finished a book?! I hope that you were able to take a nap and catch up on some sleep.

  7. Thanks for sharing! I love Descanso Gardens. I used to go there with my mom, way back. Yesterday we had a pretty similar day as yours. We walked in the park along here, but it's not nearly the size of Descanso, lol. Then we had pizza, and rented movies. Sounds like any ordinary day, but it was all about spending time with the kids, after all. 🙂

  8. Great photos of a great day. I am glad your husband was able to enjoy the day.
    Hope your Monday is going well!

  9. Green hands – you poor thing! Of course I am kind of chuckling over here…ok, well I'll admit it – I'm laughing pretty loud. Did you get a picture?

    I'm glad you guys had fun at the gardens!

  10. Alyce – I did not get a pic of the green hands. Everything they touched left a green smear so I did the chlorine rinse immediately but then got totally high from the bleach fumes. LOL.
