a good june sunday

After church Sunday morning, in the late afternoon, we all went to Shoreline Village in Long Beach to grub on some Bubba Gump food for Father's day. When our bellies were full and happy, we walked along to enjoy the day, the sites and each other. 

One of the shops I do like to visit when we are there is The Village Hat Shop. It's so much fun looking at all the hats and more fun watching Nat try them on.
She became the Mad Hatter, the Red Queen and of course, a Hogwarts witch. My favorite though was this huge pink sun hat that totally devoured her sweet little head.

A cute little plaid hat was found and bought by Nana for Nattie. Once back outside the shop, we just lingered a bit having the warmth of the sun on our faces and Nattie making bubbles with her bubblemaker.

The bubblemaker and the Papa.
We made our way back to return home but not before we noticed the pretty landscape, a bit of green and flora to play in and appreciate.

There's a little something lurking behind..

Of course, we all seemed to notice this beautiful giant of a tree and wish we all had one just like it back at the house. My dad was already imagining a little tree house way up within the branches.

More fun with bubbles and a great time celebrating Fathers and Family.
