talk about a vacation...

I will post up some new pics/video soon - but I have been meaning to get around to post this link... this is "friend of a friend..." Check out their website when you have a chance... interesting way to do things...
This site records the travels of Jackie (35) and her three kids: Jack (3), Bayla (1), and Steve (38).

In the spring of 2006 we decided to sell virtually all of it, reluctantly store some of it, and give the rest away to wander about land and sea.

Some people think we are crazy, some are interested and others are not impressed. There are many ways to play the game. We aren't playing to win: We are playing to play.

the throne

yep - a big milestone was reached. Owen walked to the bathroom, pulled his shirt up and tried climbing on to "the throne. We picked him up - got him in position - and eureka. It wasn't quite Niagara Falls... but hey - it's a start.

Owen and the piñata

Owen and the piñata

Owen's cousin (Dan) had his 21st birthday this week - he got a piñata filled with essential items for the 21 year old… Here is Owen taking a swing (with a little help from mom). Some more pics are on Flickr. Oh – there was some candy too – that Owen got to have.

Castles in the Sand

Yesterday was a beautiful day at the beach. The water was about 72 degrees – this is about 15 degrees warmer than what we are use to – so we spent a lot of time playing in the water and the shore.

O is for Orangutan

O is for Orangutan
Originally uploaded by rick loughery.
Friday we went to the San Diego Zoo. It was pretty hot so a lot of the animals were pretty slow moving... so were mom and dad by the end of the day. (a dip in the ocean at the end of the day refreshed). This Orangutan was the exception. He came right up to the glass and leaned in to get a kiss from Owen. - click on Flickr to see some more pics. I will also post a video clip o O (Owen not the Orangutan, feeding the giraffes).

Holiday Road

The first leg of the journey went real well – no traffic, no problems. Found a nice spot to stop and take a break (for both Rupert and Owen). Owen fell asleep on the ride down – the plan was to bring him right into Aunt Kathy’s place and put him down… but Owen had other ideas. He woke up and was ready to start his vacation. We probably didn’t get to sleep until 4 a.m.
