We’ve been traveling this week in our family. I spent a delightful two days in San Francisco on a field trip with Jack’s class, and today Trace is in Illinois for Andrew’s graduation from Navy bootcamp. The kids and I watched it streaming live this morning, and we were certain that Andrew was one of the guys wearing white, with a white hat. My, they do all look alike on video.
Jack and I had perfect weather in San Francisco. While those of you in Nevada County got rain, we had only sunshine and wind. The kids all loved playing at the Exploratorium, and they were amazed by the exhibits at the California Academy of Sciences. If you haven’t visited either of those museums, I highly recommend them, especially for kids. Jack’s favorites were the birds and butterflies at Cal Academy, and the circuits and marble wall at the Exploratorium. Playing with colored shadows, as in the header picture, was fun too.
Yesterday, before he left town, Trace roasted Colombian Supremo, and we all got to sample it. This is across the South Pacific from last week’s Sumatra: and the flavor profile is quite different. It has a medium body, light floral tones, and finishes with a distinct bittersweet chocolate flavor. You could drink this all day long, and it would be great brewed strong and served over ice.
If you have children in school, I hope that you are enjoying the countdown to summer. I know that for us at least it’s a busy two weeks, full of fun activities. Carolines will be open on Memorial Day, Monday, from 7 am to 4 pm. Come on in and pick up a mocha freeze on your way to a barbeque (or try the Colombian on us with the code over ice*). While you’re here, be sure to wish a happy birthday to our marvelous manager, Miss Becky Miller! We’ll be celebrating with her for sure. Cheers!
