Weekend in Bakersfield

We went up to Bakersfield this weekend to visit Tom's parents. It has been a LONG time since we have visited and Tom didn't have too much work this weekend so we took advantage of the opportunity. We also took advantage of the giant avocado tree in their backyard and came home with a giant bag of avocados. Yum.

While we were there Harper loved playing in their backyard. Poor girl spends most of her "outside time" playing on our little balcony. Because of our trip on Saturday and our 12-3 church time on Sunday, Harper didn't nap all weekend. So today when I put her down, I kept hearing all kinds of noises coming out of her room. I checked on her three separate times and she was counting her toes, standing on her baby doll bouncing up and down, and then throwing all of the toys out of the crib and saying "uh-oh." Finally I just checked on her and she was asleep. Silly girl.

The last photo of Tom does not do justice to the fact he was balancing precariously on top of a 6 foot block fence, reaching waaay up for the tasty avacadoes. This year was really a bumper year. I bet that tree is 30 feet tall, and usually we just wait for the fruits to fall onto the bed of autumn leaves. (there's a reason we don't rake them up back there.) Tom, Thanks for the heroic picking jog.
