Nice Change

A few days ago the two of us were flying along the magnificent Santa Barbara coast seeing sights like this at Naples just West of town.

Starting last night, we’re a large family doing things on the ground together. My precious Daughter and her fun husband brought our delightful Grand Daughter (I call her Lulu) to visit us for a week. So we woke this morning to this warm family scene with Lulu intently enjoying the toys and other kid supplies loaned by our sweet grandparent friends.

We’re re-learning all the skills we learned raising our daughter, like kid-proofing hazardous and breakable stuff, keeping toys off the floor, and most importantly how to handle tantrums and naps. Luckily we all have patience, knowledge and skills, and best of all she’s a Perfect Child. We took them to the farmer’s market, and they rather enjoyed the contrast with Edmonton where they were yesterday in sub-zero weather and the color-free realm of snow and ice we visited in February 2011.
