So our super awesome friend jason silverek buys and restores vintage trailers. For my birthday he gave me one night or two with one of his trailers. Last weekend as sort of an end of the summer celebration we had him take it up to sugarloaf for us for one fun filled night of trailer fun. Sold. I want one. Below are a few pictures of that delightful trip complete with proscuitto wrapped melon, prawn pesto pasta, buffalo pommodore, smores and too many lemon drops...
Oh yeah, and here are some new hats!

Happy birthday Violet! Today my little girl turned 9...almost two hands full. Since i'm pretty sure i will never get up early enough to make her bento lunches and i've always had a facination with bento charaben lunches i decided to make her one that would last for ever. The little mushrooms and grass are made out of cloth and the bunnies are crochet with pleather eyes to look like nori. The whole thing was ridiculously fun to make complete with the trip to japan town in San Francisco to pick up the totoro bento box. It even came with some of those nifty japanese erasers shaped like food so she can feed them! I will be making more for sure...Bento Buddies!

In honor of me loosing my camera at the fair today, i will not be posting any pictures in this entry. Just imagine if you will my beautiful daughters and i riding all the favorite rides with exhuberant looks on our faces, hair blowing in the wind and sunburns on the backs of our necks. Now picture us if you will eating all the things associated with the fair such as corn dogs, shoe string french fries, churros, ice cream...and finally the girls sitting patiently awaiting there turn to get wee tiny, we were on a budget, henna tattoos on their wee tiny for arms.
An excellent day for sure. Now for some camera shopping...
okay one picture but a random one.
