It’s been another rough month. We learned we had a bat infestation in our attic. Hundreds. Including this little guy:
And they weren’t even controlling the mosquito population. The subsequent bat extraction process has decimated the kitchen reno budget. Oh well. That’s life. At least the flowers finally appeared out here.

In celebration of surviving flood season intact, and in preparation for Nick’s summer departure next week, we decided to take a last minute trip out to California. It was our first vacation for just the two of us since we moved to Minnesota over two years ago. I cannot possibly describe how nice it was. After securing an awesome deal on a convertible at Hertz, we drove the Pacific Coast highway from Big Sur to upper Sonoma County. Just incredible.
One of my favorite stops was the one that I hadn’t thought I’d enjoy as much as I did. Point Reyes National Seashore is just north of San Francisco, and just amazing on a eerie, foggy day.
