Natalie and Luke took a trip down to Huntington Beach this week to visit Natalie's college friend Allyssa, her hubby Jason, and her son Kelly.
Check out Luke and his buddy in the VW bus.
Luke couldn't wait to run down to the water...

Easy Chair

Luke loves sitting in his chair, eating, and watching DVDs. We don't let him watch very often, so he thoroughly enjoys it when we do. First thing he does almost every morning is run to his chair, sit in it, and point to the TV saying "wanna wonna choo choo", which translates to "Good morning mommy and daddy, may I please watch a Thomas the Train DVD while I drink my milk this morning?" He's so polite.
Then he says, "a-a-a outside, a-a-a outside", which means he wants to go outside. He pretty much wants to be outside all day.

Petting Day at Deer Hollow Farm

While Natalie was out getting flowers and gardening supplies to prepare for spring, Luke and I had some good father-son time at the farm. This goat is pregnant with twins...
Luke's not afraid to walk right up to the big sheep...
Awe... baby sheep.
When we got home Luke helped build the fire.

Sick Luke

Luke hasn't been feeling to good this week. He doesn't have quite the energy he usually does...
Just lounging around...When he's sick and tired he just wants to hang out on the couch and watch Thomas the Train videos...

California Academy of Sciences - San Francisco

Climbing on the fences at the California Academy of Sciences was more fun for Luke than seeing the animals:
Lots of fishBig fish tank...Petting the starfishThe most fun part of the day was when Luke found this cement ledge between the glass wall and the garbage cans; he ran up and down this thing for a half hour, laughing all the way.Museum review: The California Academy of "Sciences" is basically a religious institution with a small zoo inside. One side is dedicated to the worship of macro-evolutionary theory, and the other to man-made global warming. We went soon after the renovation so it was also very crowded, no where to sit, long lines for a hot dog lunch, etc. -- but we had a great time! Lots of interesting animals to see.

More Guitar

Every few days Luke opens up the hall closet and points to the guitar case inside. It's a good reminder to make time to play the guitar a little more.
