Too Fast

It's amazing how quickly we go from here…

To here…

Sometimes life just needs to slow down.

My Daughter Owns Me

When my daughter (my little three year old baby) got home, she informed me that she had a learnt, in her words, Taekwondo, at daycare today.

So not only does she totally own me already (she's a girl, she's my daughter, aka a dangerous combination), she's also going to be able to totally kick my ass.

Sigh. Daughters. They rock :-)

Vacation!

As this is my millennium post, I thought it might be a good idea to post something a little different…

Last weekend we headed out east in the car and spent a few days in Lake Chelan. Man, was it hot! It hit 103o on Monday, but no matter - the kids loved the change of pace (as did the parents).

We spent most of our time by the lake and the kids spent most of their time digging and mostly moving sand and water from one spot to another…

It was a nice little spot. There was a Starbucks and a Safeways right across the street from the hotel, and the hotel was downtown, close to a park which happened to have a fair going on at the same time we were there.

Plus there were some other unusual sights…

In the eating department, I can highly recommend Local Myth Pizza - definitely some of the best pizza I've ever eaten.

On the way home, we stopped off at the Rocky Ridge Dam. The facility is impeccably maintained and has a great visitor center. Something I (and the kids) particularly liked was the great views of the fish ladder. Much fun was had spotting the little fishes…

As always, photos are up on flickr. We'll be going back…
