Hamster Racing in Valencia

We went to the exciting hamster races - it was great to see Amy's hamster Hammy. You'd be surprised at the crowds that the races draw.

Fun at the movies

We went to the new G movie - when the stobe lights and klaxons came on. Then we joined the parade out of the cinema. All was fine - there was only about $1000 in damage - they burned their $7 a box popcorn. The movie resumed after that brief intermission.

Happy Weasel Stomping Day

We had a traditional Weasel Stomping Day - boots, Viking helmets, and mayonnaise spreading on the lawn. The boys have enjoyed listening to Weird Al, so they thought we should celebrate. We decided that it should be celebrated the first Saturday after Spring.

We all took turns with the Viking helmet - they are much harder to find than you would think.

Happy WSD!

Campbell resting

Campbell took some time out from television to talk to Pop. He told him about the surgery and how he feels now (better, but tender).


All went well. He is resting well at home and not in too much pain. He is looking forward to having a TV-od today.

Thanks for all your prayers.

Getting ready

Campbell is ready to go. He says he hates the gown.

Why people live in SoCal

It is another beautiful day in California. We had lunch outside in the shade. Campbell's surgery is tomorrow, but he seems not to be concerned.

We're not in Kansas anymore

We are also not in the USA. We took the boys over to Mexico today. At first Campbell did not want to go - he changed his mind as we got closer. We wandered the street trying to decide which Pharmacy to go to, and where to have our plastic surgery and dental work done. We decided not to any of that so we bought so Mexican handicrafts. We also went to the market - I found my favorite icecream bar, Magnum! We bought some icecream and sodas then walked back to the USA. Everyone had a nice visit.

The Streets of San Francisco

Lego Land has a mini San Francisco build out of lego bricks. We spent some time looking at the detail - we found this fountain (much cleaner than the real one), the California Sea Lions behind pier 39, and most shocking The Bush Man complete with screaming tourist.

The real Bush Man made Kerry jump and scream when we were in SF in October.

Desert Springs

We stopped by the Desert Tower on the way to El Centro. While at the tower the operator sugested that we might like to hike to see the desert springs - we were not disappointed.
