Fourth in the Mountains

For the Americans out there, happy 4th of July! Without much to talk about regarding our adoption (other than 4 referrals last week--not too shabby!), we did have a really fun weekend hanging with my parents in the booming metropolis of Mineral, California. Population 90.

Booming. Metropolis.

Maggie was an angel on the long drive down...

Mineral is located in Lassen Volcanic National Park (ignore my Seattle-white legs, btw--they just may blind you)

The lovely cabin...

We did nada, zip and zero. Just mainly read, slept and yakked. (beware the picture below. it may traumatize you)

We also drank many, many lattes topped with whipped cream and crushed-up Heath bars. Again, not too shabby!

A lovely weekend! Hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th of July!

**Oh, and it was H-O-T!!!


  1. Cute pictures! Looked beautiful. You stayed in a cabin on a volcano? Sounds brave to me. :-)

  2. love these pictures!! absolutely breath taking. and your legs aren't too shabby either!! haha! I have super white Irish legs and it's been over 100 degrees here for weeks! our new kiddos are definitely going to make fun of our glossy whiteness! : )

  3. OK, a weekend reading, talking and drinking lattes with health bars on top? Sign me up!!!

  4. Oh, Mineral! I have such fond memories of that place :) our oliver north parody, jack getting forget-me-knots all stuck in his fur (hopefully maggie didn't suffer the same fate!), running in moon boots...good times :)
