Day 84: Coyote, Hammer Boy, Jump Sky High

Yes, we were back at Jump Sky High in Camarillo today - the place that is all the rage for 7 year old boy parties.  Today we celebrated Cade's birthday.  On the way home we took the scenic route, blowing off the 101 South for Kanan road.  We passed through Calabasas, Agoura Hills, and as promised, some amazing scenery in the canyon.  The best part was sighting a coyote that ran out in the road.  Beckett was thrilled.  We passed through a few of those cool round tunnels that were blasted through the mountains, and there were some amazing ocean vistas.  In Malibu we stopped off for an iced tea and snack at Starbucks, and Beckett wanted to go on the swings in the playground for a few minutes.  Mark and I used to make a day of it and take the kids to this playground, then to the Ben and Jerry's, the pet shop (neither of which are there anymore) and the beach.  The playground has the least frumpy poser parents I have seen at any playground anywhere.  It's actually quite entertaining to see the who's who of stars, rocker wives and "real housewives of Beverly Hills" in the sandbox. One time my kids were running around playing touch football with a bunch of kids at the playground and some kid's dad, who on closer inspection I noticed was Jim Cameron.  I was going to blog about Howdy's, a cute little taco joint by the playground, but I got some guacamole and chips there today that was so bad I had to throw it out.  This is Beckett posing next to Hammer boy:
