Part 1 here, Part 2 here, Part 3 here. After we met Olaf, the snow was ready to play in. I should say "play" because while it was snow (very icy snow) and this was Disney, you couldn't do much... Continue reading

Read Part 1 here. Read Part 2 here. What California Adventure is complete without celebrities? We bumped into our share and Harper seemed to enjoy them, though she preferred to have at least me by her side while posing. As... Continue reading

Okay, I actually live in the right place for many things. The main thing is the movies. I always wanted to work in the movies, so here I am working the movies. But the weather never suited me. I always... Continue reading

(See Part 1 here.) After departing Cars Land, we meandered over to Paradise Pier. (Seen here from borrowed image.) Along the way we stopped at Ariel's Undersea Adventure which is a nice relaxing "sit in the giant clamshell and watch... Continue reading

We decided it was time for a trip to Anaheim to visit the Happiest Place on Earth. Well, we actually visited the place next door to the Happiest Place on Earth. ("Happy Adjacent"?) Harper is fully potty trained, still fits... Continue reading

Last year we discovered Underwood Farms in Moorpark (and their smaller sister farm in Somis). They close from December to March and recently reopened so we drove out and picked some lovely veggies and strawberries. Then Harper had fun in... Continue reading

Harper's preschool celebrated the Indian holiday of Holi yesterday. It is a Hindu spring holiday celebrating love and colors. If you've seen people in India dressed in white throwing colorful powders at each other, that is Holi. I think Harper... Continue reading

Dorothy Frey loved to drive. I'm not sure where her love for driving started, perhaps in her childhood as her dad had one of the first cars in Houston and they often took road trips. She and her sister, Millie,... Continue reading

Back in January I started to answer questions from this article. It was a sort of "getting to know you" blog post series and I enjoyed it very much. (It's always nice when someone asks you questions about you!*) See... Continue reading

I was in the hair color section the other day, just browsing for temporary color. (Didn't find/buy any.) But I did run across this and man oh man did that take me back. I wonder how many bottles I bought... Continue reading

Yesterday Harper had her usual nap. She asked to sleep in her clothes, not to change into PJs. I said sure. She had her party dress on (she calls it "party dress") which has no sleeves. When I left the... Continue reading

Or "Small Freys" if you like. Going through photo albums at Kurt's mom's place and Kurt spotted a gem of a pic. His mom and him when he was maybe 9 months to a year old. Adorable on its own... Continue reading

We are fortunate enough to hire a woman to clean our house on Fridays. And every Friday I love to see how she's tidied up the toys that live on/around Harper's bed and chair. It's never radically different but it... Continue reading
