Labor Day BBQ with the Waylands. Followed by some meat baby visitors.
Fairyland, Oakland. The most sickly sweet theme park in the world.
…but it did have a prison cell for annoying children. So every cloud…
Fairyland puppet theater. Aspiring Kermits have to start somewhere.
Foo Fighters at Shoreline Amphitheater. Lose-your-voice good.
Amazing night. I think Alex may have thrown a pair of her underwear at the stage. Or maybe that was me.
Capitola. Horrible place.
Small portions (me and Ava that is, not the meal).
Even the bubbles are massive in the US.
San Jose Discovery Museum. Essential prep work for the day she runs away to join the circus.

Shiny new iPhones await their owners on launch day.
People queued through the night to get their hands on the latest handset. Including this robot lady person.
September was the month that Ava learned how to take a selfie. I have about 300 of these on my iPad.
Monterey Bay. Where even the graffiti is lovely.
Found these mermaids at Monterey Bay aquarium.
Wave jumping in Carmel.
San Jose Earthquakes vs. Real Salt Lake at the Ava(ya) stadium.
Once upon a time a family of four left London for Silicon Valley. This is our story.
