Fuji Superia 800. Canon AE-1.

A boy and his birthday cake. He loved his rainbow cake so much that he’s frequently mentioned a desire to have the same cake again next year, but my guess is that once I show them the bevvy of options on Pinterest that he’ll want to try something new.

As I was baking this, I told my mom that I think this is my favorite holiday tradition. Partially because I eat dozens of spoonfuls worth of raw batter and frosting, but mostly because there’s so much joy found in creating a thing that will bring so much joy to the people I love. I haven’t baked a cake for TH in the past, and I didn’t make myself one last year, but I’m going to start doing so from now on.

T1 day Santa Cruz

Photo credit to Denise Andersen (Nana) for this darling shot of T1 celebrating T1 Day 2015 at the Boardwalk of Santa Cruz. He really enjoyed picking all of his meals and having access to unlimited show and spending the afternoon riding rides with his best friend. He woke up the next morning and told me he wishes it could be T1 Day every day! I told him that’s how I feel about my birthday too.

My mom is flying in and we’re going to spend the day in San Francisco tomorrow! I can’t get enough of those hilly streets and yummy food. I think we’re going to do a very quintessential SF afternoon with Dolores Park, Bi-Rite, and my first in-person visit to the Painted Ladies.

On this beach trip we learned that it’s best to change into swimsuits and do sunscreen at home. The two of them ran straight for the water as soon as we stepped on the sand.

Fuji Superia X-tra 400, Voitlander Bessamatic, 50mm f/2.8

At the beach on the right side of the Santa Cruz boardwalk, January 2015.

I’ve decided that 2015 is going to be the year of the beach for us. Get an umbrella, develop a packing system, have a default picnic packing list to make grocery shopping easy, load up on cornstarch to get the sand off their little bodies when we get back to the car. I can’t get enough of the waves and the splashing and the sunshine, and neither can they.
