Oahu - First Day

So we made it. We brought just one “gadget” shy of Circuit City on the plane with us. From a computer with a DVD to a video iPod loaded with Elmo to a digital camera and a camcorder (don’t forget the phone with the digital camera and video recorder). It’s good to know that the majority of the time spent flying was actually spent coloring. Sure – Dad did most of the coloring and drawing but O was having fun directing Dad what to draw…

Here is a pic of O watching the video iPod on the plane and here is a pic at the place we are staying – Turtle Bay – click on the link to see the place we are staying and go to flickr to see more pics. Hopefully, we will post some pics each day.

Owen Reading Brown Bear

One of the first books that we read to Owen was Brown Bear Brown Bear. It continues to be a favorite. Tonight while trying to capture some Valentines Greetings (sorry that didn’t work but Happy Valentines Day) … we did manage to capture Owen reading Brown Bear Brown Bear all by himself. He hasn’t done this before and it was a pretty cool moment.

Busy Month

Its been awhile since the last post. Coming off the busy holidays and a visit from Grandpop Loughery - January kind of flew by – and here it is February. Owen started swim classes in January and we are making some good progress. He loves the water but definitely is still more comfortable if he is grasping on to Dad and a rubber duck. We also decided to take a vacation at the end February to the north shore of Oahu – we will bring the computer and upload some pictures while we are there. The winter has been cold (for northern California) but pretty dry up until this week. The rain is actually a welcome site – snow up in Tahoe!
