We got to celebrate Nanny’s (Steve’s Grandma) 85th Birthday! Everly enjoyed seeing everyone, and when Steve gave a sweet toast, about how he loved going to “Palm Pings” to visit his grandma growing up, Everly also hogged the mic & repeatedly wished “Happy Birthday Nanny”! So special to have a Great-Grandma for Everly to spend time with! And seriously- Look at that desert!
After our class at The Makery– I saw some neat posts on instagram from another craftsman in the community space. I sent him a message about possibly making a reclaimed wood infil panel for our fireplace.
We visited his workspace, to scope out the materials he’s picked up around town, and here’s the final piece- we LOVE it. Love hearing about where the wood came from, especially since some of it is from orange, (especially since Steve is also sourced from Orange! haha.)
Team Steamie does Monterey! We booked ourselves a cute Airbnb- and hit the road to Monterey!
Everly loved saying “Cation”, and “Monterey” and, of course “Fishies” since we’d been telling her there would be lots of fish to see at the aquarium.
Doing a little research before hand we learned about the Dennis the Menace park- it was a HIT for our playground obsessed little lady. She covered every inch of this playground- even the things we thought were a bit to advanced… those are some BIG ladders! haha.
The house we stayed at also included passes to the aquarium- so we visited it both Friday & Saturday. Out firiends Szara & Makalah met us up for fun with the fishies.
Aside from the aquarium, we walked, explored, and [excitedly] rode the trolley around town, strolled, checked out the coastline & ate lots of yummy food.
As a make-up mothers day gift to ourselves- my mom and I attended a weaving class at the really neat space- The Makery. Located in the Community space- it’s a really neat little collection of shops/workshops, and obviously flamenco dancing too.
We arrived to little DIY looms waiting for us, and loads of yarn options.
After a couple hours- we each had our own creation to take home! I’m looking forward to future classes there, and to making more weavings on my own at home!
