October is my favorite month in SoCal. They are very summery and the beaches are empty.
Here the girls enjoy some Big Sticks and we harvest some watermelon. The watermelon didn't turn out too hot...but it was fun!
Notice our patio garden, Rubbermaid planters? Thanks to my INGENIOUS mother-in-law. Our little garden looks sad and decrepit here. It was the end of the season, ok?!! But the planters worked out GREAT! Some holes drilled in the bottom, resting atop their lids.
