Shoeless in Canada

What's a guy to do when he's bundled off to Canada at the crack of dawn, but his mom leaves his shoes at home? Get on that ferry to Victoria anyway! Shoes, it appears, aren't a requirement for entering Canada.

Next step, after clearing Customs: find a pedicab to the nearest shoe store!

Pretty cool shoes, huh? Milo solicited the opinion of every Victorian he encountered, and all agreed. Pretty cool.

And Alan wandered around Victoria in this cap!

Hi Bert, you're an author now! How about some photos posted from your Yellowstone trip?

Here are a few from our jam session in January 09, featuring Leona on violin, Dede on guitar, and... drumroll... Milo on bones, with an appreciative audience in attendance.

Photos from Engineer & Cinnamon Passes

Here are a few family photos from the Colorado trip that I didn't put on my other blog:

Torin & Cinco at Cinnamon Pass

Kenzie & Torin at American Basin

And this morning Noel sent this photo of our family watching the foxes that Torin spotted!

Colorado Adventures

Hi All! Alan and I (with our friend Noel, whom many of you know) just returned from our trip to Lake City, where we enjoyed sharing the high mountains once again with Brandon, Aimee, Kenzie, Torin, and Lisa. (Missed Kelly by only a day--she's there now, celebrating her 50th birthday!)

At Brandon's house in Lake City

I've started posting details with photos on my other blog, so please check there to see, for instance, pictures of the two wonderful foxes (a Silver Fox and a Cross Fox) which Torin spotted at Engineer Pass. Also you'll soon be able to see photos of the Grail Butterfly––the Lustrous Copper, for which we've searched for years! Now that called for ice cream.

Cinco at American Flats

Please post what you've been doing too. For one thing, Milo lost his first tooth, and Hollin needs to tell us all about the tooth fairy's visit in these modern times!
