California: The second full day

January 3rd, 2010

Hi Everyone! Guess what!?! On my second full day in California, I went outside in the snow…..

PICT0194

With Cousin Adam,

PICT0204

and Cousin Tristan,

PICT0205

and Cousin Braden,

PICT0198

and Silly Daddy, (hee, hee!).

PICT0183

And we built a snowman!!!

PICT0171

And he was just my size!

PICT0158

I had so much fun!

PICT0195

I loved being with my cousins!

PICT0164

And I loved digging.

PICT0166

And I loved Wucy.

What more can I say?

PICT0215

Cousin Adam was my special buddy.

PICT0178

He’s only two years older than me and we got to spend a lot of time together while his older brothers went snowboarding.

PICT0152

I even let him play with my trains.

PICT0151

And you know how much that means to me.

PICT0225

He and his brothers were super cute with Snuggles, too.

Later that day, they had to leave and I was sorry to see them go.

PICT0242

So I wound up…..

PICT0243

….. and gave Cousin Adam a “five” to remember!

PICT0237

Then it was time to say goodbye to Wucy.

PICT0239

“Goodbye, Wucy. You’ll always be Ruff Ruff to me, girl.”

Then we all took naps while Grandma played with Snuggles.

And then!!!!!

Mommy got a belated Christmas present in the mail from Daddy (and Grandma, Grandpa, Papa, gg and the next six months of her personal money) that made her positively giddy!!!!

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1.

The camera of my Mommy’s dreams. With new digital technology, it has a live LCD screen and no moving parts inside the body of the camera. Which means Mommy can take unlimited pictures without wearing out shutters.

It’s also the smallest dSLR out there and weighs practically nothing compared to her Konica Minolta beast. Which means she can carry it AND her video camera AND her two boys all around with ease!!!!!

*Sigh* What more could a Mommy want?

So then she had to try it out all night long.

P1000007

To see if the man at the camera store was right. And he was.

It blew her Konica Minolta out of the water.

(Thank you everyone!!!)

After that, I went to bed.

And Mommy spent the night reading her new manual.

P1000038

And taking pictures of Grandma who ignored her crazed daughter.

P1000039

Oh, and she played a little Scrabble, too. She’d won the night before for the first time in her life and wouldn’t you know she did it again!

P1000037

She’s pretty sure Daddy and Grandma were her good luck charms.

We’re so glad you had so much fun on your second day. You were really on a roll playing Scrabble! It was so great to have all of you visit.
