Mr. BAW is one of those more lucky people I know, and I'm not even counting the fact that he married me!  Ha!  But he has, on more than a few occasions, found money just walking on the street.  Well, last weekend, he literally became the luckiest person I know!  Have you ever heard of the "hidden cash" man?  Apparently there's a millionaire who likes to hid cash in interesting places up in the Bay Area and in Los Angeles for people to find.  He called it "a social experiment."  Well, last weekend, Mr. BAW went to Hermosa Beach to play volleyball early in the morning.  He said that after playing one game, he decided to take some trash to a nearby trashcan.  When he got there, he noticed a  superhero pez dispenser half buried in the sand.  He thought that Buzz would enjoy the toy so he picked it up.  Then he noticed that there was something in the dispenser.  When he opened it, there was a $50 bill inside it!  He thought that maybe someone had used a pez dispenser to store money at the beach and just dropped it accidentally.  So he went back to the volleyball court and told his friends about it.  Then he noticed yet another pez dispenser nearby!  So one of the guys went online using his phone and found out that the hidden cash man was targeting Hermosa Beach that morning!  So the group started looking all over the beach and together, they found about 13 of the 37 pez dispensers!  Mr. BAW found the most, he even told a friend where he spotted one!  One of his friend found a pez that had $100 bill in it!  In total, Mr. BAW found about $200.  Needless to say, volleyball was cut short that day.  I told him that someone is finally paying him to play beach volleyball!  :-)  The kids enjoyed playing with the character pez dispensers.  

Many of his volleyball friends gave Mr. BAW their empty pez dispensers knowing that Buzz and Ahgoo would enjoy them.

Green lantern delivered something green.

When we were preparing to  spend a  night over 4th of July with Mr. BAW's aunt, she told me to pack some play clothes for the kids.  One of the activities she had planned for them is  baking cookies!!  Thank goodness for fun aunts because I would've never thought that the kids are old enough to bake cookies!  They had so much fun cutting out the cookies with different cutters.  She even brought out books about the animals that the kids were using as cookie cutters.  The kids got a lesson about camels and bats!  Of course you can't make cookies without rainbow sprinkles and chocolate chips!  A few chips even made it onto the cookies and into  the oven, most of them went straight into the kids' mouths!  The best part of it all is that we got to enjoy the cookies, funny as they may look.

The kids patiently waiting for the dough to be rolled out.

Buzz wanted to make lots of bat cookies and Ahgoo wanted to make hearts and stars.

I love chubby fingers with knuckle dimples!

For every sprinkle that makes it onto the cookie, five enter the mouth.

How many chocolate chips can a cookie possibly hold??  The kids were going to test that limit!

Happy July!  I hope everyone had a good 4th of July.  We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend filled with lots of activities, mostly of the relaxing type.  On Sunday morning, we walked over to our local pastry shop to share a nice chocolate cupcake.  After that, we walked over to the local park to look for peacocks and enjoyed a little shenanigan.  I made  the kids some wild flower bracelets and they hogged up the camera to show off their new jewelry.   Sometimes it's the simple things in life that make us happiest.

Ahgoo loves picking wild flowers.


Her big brother was doing something silly again.

Buzz, doing something silly.

Oh the shenanigans!

Buzz plays the part of the So-Cal-surfer-and-flower-child well.

More shenanigans!
