Art How I Spent My Summer Vacation

In the spirit of this poast, here are our vacation photos. They're hosted on Google Photos (of course we have our own problems), but you don't need to log to see them. I wish I could figure out how to embed thumbnails or something other than the yuge version, but I cannot, so you get links. Despite that, I do recommend Google Photos as a cloud photo service, if you're in the market for such a thing. And I will acknowledge that I have my own motive for recommending it, as the more delicious, delicious data we can mine, the sooner we can bring about the damn Singularity. :plzhold:

Without further ado...

First, in April, bey's friend came to visit for a few days. We came to Google and saw a DOUBLE RAINBOW! :rainbow::rainbow: I learned from a woman who was there that when there is a double rainbow, the colors in the second rainbow are reversed! :stunned: Also the rainbow and the reversed rainbow have different words in Chinese (I don't know what kind of Chinese, she just said Chinese).

I took a couple trips to Southern California for family stuff. The first was in May, to attend my niece's graduation from Cal State Northridge (also one of my mom's alma maters). I took my sister and her kids to California Adventure at Disneyland, to see all the Marvel stuff. I'm pretty sure I traumatized her daughter (different niece) by taking her on the Guardians ride, which was way too scary for her. Oh well, what are aunts for? :lol:

We went to an Ingress event at a campground near the Mendocino Coast, which I know nothing about except it's wine country. qingdai and team came down from Portland and let us join their team, it was awesome.

Seriously, just click through to the full album, there was so much cool stuff to see there! Also vistas and tall trees and stuff.

In June we drove up to my aunt's dairy farm (Chico area for those following along in their atlases) for my family reunion. I'll spare you all the pictures of my boring family, except one.

My birthday weekend bey's cousin was in town from Georgia, and we drove the Camaro to Sacramento and spent it with our cousins there. My former Women's Studies professor also lives in Sac now, and we plus bey have become super good friends, so she came to that too and it was awesome to see her.

PIBBLE plus me

There are other pics in the full album, nothing especially exciting. My cousin has the videos of me fairly inebriated, ostensibly "dancing" in her kitchen, so hashtag sorry not sorry you have to go find those yourself on Facebook.

Second trip to So Cal was for the memorial, but it was conveniently the weekend of my nephew's 1st birthday party, so that was a bonus under the shitty circumstances.

Oh wow, what a convenient place to end. I didn't even plan that! :happysun:

Okay, you are next. POAST YOURS NOW

That reminded me of the totally important part I left out. Our real summer vacation hasn't even happened yet! That will be the week following Labor Day, and just you wait. It's gonna be a doozy.

I took my cousin to Alcatraz as well and me and ES are going to it and Angel Island this weekend.

Edited to add: Daisy was so cute chasing the cows. Once she figured they were scared of her, she got those motherfuckers movin. It was hilarious and cute and probably dangerous as fuck for her.
