|This is Sunset Beach just south of Santa Cruz|
We have had some weirdly cool and rainy days this week. Weird because they followed some crazy WARM days. AND it looks like that is all changing again as the sun is out and the temps are warming up.
Mommy #1 is going to her PROM tomorrow. She is kinda all excited about it - in a crabby "I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR ALL THIS" sorta way. I think she will have fun.
Her prom is being held at the *Cocoanut Grove on the Santa Cruz Beach and Boardwalk. This is a place where a lot of fancy schmancy events are held - weddings, proms, launch parties, etc. In the past, Sonny and Cher (they were big time pop stars in the last century) performed there. It looks like a magical place for a prom.

Mommy #2 is a little peeved the PROM is being held so far from home. Santa Cruz is about 30-40 minutes away from us over the Santa Cruz Mountains. Straight-line-wise it is all of 27 miles. But those miles are windy and crazy in places. Not a place to TEXT or SPEED when you drive it. And we are talking teen drivers. San Jose is a BIG CITY with a lot of magical venues for PROM. Why it couldn't be held here is a mystery.
So Mommy and the other 'rents have laid out plans and rules for those driving. Some are taking a bus from school, too. Although Mommy #2 would be happier if Mommy #1 took a bus, she understands why this is not a favorite idea for a prom date.
But the weather should be perfect for going to the beach! Look at this
I really do wish I could go to the prom as well. I have only SORTA gone to prom - remember last year when I STARRED in some prom pictures? And what about this year when I STARRED in a PROMPOSAL?
I have definitely earned my place at the prom. Just in case, I am dressing up.
