End of Summer
Other than the fact that IT SNOWED THIS WEEKEND (thank goodness we were in Los Angeles!), I think we all are realizing that the end of summer is here. The month of August was very busy for us with lots of visitors. We love visitors. It started with Vic's cousin's wedding, then a visit from Vic's dear friend Mike Hatch, my sister coming from St. Louis, and we topped it off with a trip to L.A.
At the wedding.
Cousin Shara and I.
Shara's son Jackson.
Vic and Mike at the Olympic Park.
There were never such devoted sisters.
Here we have my mom and I riding the chair lift. Upon reaching the top, Amy and my mom took one of the world's longest ziplines to the bottom. I wimped out. Go, Nancy!
Shopping at Gardner Village with Ames.
Photo shoot with my nephew Jack at Justin Hackoworth's studio.
Scuplture Gardens at UCLA
We look just like we felt. Somber and broken hearted. It wasn't right to be there without Lucy. It was too easy to travel. No car seat to check at the gate, no stroller... We aren't supposed to be newlyweds.
The Coral Casino 4 Seasons in Santa Barbara. Swimming and reading right on the beach was heavenly.
Apparently, Feclicity Huffman was walking by as our photo was being taken. We were clueless.
Visiting old friends, including the couch where we had our first kiss.
Eric Smith and Victor Victoria.
Jessica Beany and Kami.
Swimming, surfing, and kayaking at the beach house in Malibu with the Ravdins. Tony Danza lives next door and made an appearance on his deck. I waved hello as I walked passed with my wet boy short hair, zitted face, and permenantly tear swollen eyes. Why not?
The beautiful Emma Rose.
Vic and Emma's twin brother Jake Ravdin.
We love you, Lucy!
Endless thanks to Cathy Ravdin, Roy and Christine Silva, Jessica Bean and friends, Ron and Linda Peeleman for making this a healing, inspiring, relaxing, life-giving, enjoyable, much needed vacation. How I wish Lucy could have been here with us to enjoy this summer.
