was our son, Tommy's final day before heading back to school in Florida.
We rode bicycles over to a brand new smoothie/juice bar called PorroVita.
It's run by our daughter, Alie's friend, Chase. (See how my green bike coordinates).
This is Chase, The Master Juicer.
Below are Alie and Tommy at the custom-made table. Notice the light fixture? Chase's father created it.
PorroVita is just a block from the beach.
I ordered the oatmeal served in a fresh coconut...you can scrape the inside of the coconut as you eat the fruit and oatmeal...delicious.
Before long...several of Chase's and Alie's friends randomly showed up.
That night I set the table for Tommy's farewell party. He won't be back until early summer (sob).
The paper chalk board placemats were a gift from my friend, Carol. I wrote "Goodbye Tommy" in all different languages. The meyer lemons were picked from our tree (they smell divine) and the slate centerpiece was leftover from...
the kitchen floor (Alie's idea), but I washed it really well and added
felt protection tabs.
I googled the translations...Chinese, Swahili, Irish, Russian.
Have you seen this Saturday Night Live skit?
Always makes me laugh...especially the freeway talk...pretty accurate.
Tell Chase that "Alie's mom" sent you.
