With longer daylight hours, Emory and Elizabeth had a lot of fun with a trip to the park. It was challenging to keep them from snacking on the wood chips… one move at those and we figured out we couldn’t keep them on the ground. But the slide was a blast, they seemed to really enjoy sitting on it. When the wind picked up a bit they looked like they were zooming down together.
The elementary school down the road was a fun place to get in some fetch for Romeo. The twins enjoyed watching the spectacle as well. Album on Facebook. (Originals unavailable for uploading to Flickr due to my OSX86 machine being down for the count.) Sssh! Don’t tell nosy neighbors or authorities we were off leash! Especially don’t point them towards this photographic evidence! (Don’t worry, we can just claim these are photoshopped. Romeo looks like … Continue reading
Jennifer, the kids and I just returned from Roseville High School — in Roseville, CA — where we viewed their Amorphophallus titanum or “Corpse Flower,” Tiger the Titan. It started blooming earlier today for the first time since being started from seed 10 years ago. The teacher who runs the greenhouse sent an advisory email to the various staff members throughout the district, of which Jenn belongs (she teaches at Granite Bay HS.) As these … Continue reading
Greg and I are very aware that we are fast approaching the end of an era with just the two of us. We are enjoying quiet evenings at home and being able to go out whenever we like. The last several weekends in a row, we’ve gone to Folsom lake – to play with Romeo and take pictures. Greg is taking a photography class with his mom and he has used me as his subject … Continue reading
No, it’s not! But Jenny, Romeo and I made our way to the shores of Folsom lake for a brisk picnic anyways. She doesn’t have the luxury of waiting for the weather… she won’t be in any condition to make the trip soon! The water was 49 degrees! But Romeo had fun in the water anyways. Sometimes, instead of returning his ball, he would run into the water on his own and just lay down. … Continue reading
Jenn and I went to a crab feed to support the Granite Bay High School band last night. We missed out on the Sacramento County Republican Party crab feed, to which we had tickets to go with my parents. That missed crab was due to the deadly doom-plague cold of misery that we caught. Come to think of it, GBHS students probably gave Jenn that cold! At any rate, it was nice to go have … Continue reading
A pleasing change of pace: the sun is out today. This morning the air was crisp but the sun was bright, a welcome change from the wet and dreary weather we’ve been having. Jenny accompanied me to this month’s SAR meeting. After the meeting, we hung out in Auburn, picked up some fruit, veggies and steak at the farmer’s market. We also headed down Foresthill Road to take some pictures at the bridge. It’s high … Continue reading
Jenn and I enjoyed our trip to the Trans Siberian Orchestra on the 20th. After announcing the twins and singing happy birthday to Beth, we were off to the show. Though we are both fans (perhaps more me than her? Not sure, she’ll have to chime in haha!) neither of us had been to a concert. As a great leader once said, the “Time is Now,” as we won’t be enjoying lots of free time … Continue reading
