Morning in LA, or Alta Dena.
Peter, Charlotte and Shadrach relaxing on the couch.
Their back yard has a nice view of the mountains.
Harry, Max & Henry playing Wii.
Peter shoveling out the chicken coop.
We went to their swim club.
That guy on the right is an actor I recognize but I can’t place his name or what he’s been in. Which probably explains why he belongs to a relatively inexpensive swim club rather than some posh country club. Harry is enjoying a shaved ice.
Edit: Peter found out who he is, it's John Michael Higgins. He was Mentok the Mind Taker in Harvey Birdman Attorney at Law! Not that I recognized him from that role.
The next day we went to the California Science Center.
The kids enjoying a zoetrope.
Some thermal imaging.
Charlotte in a hurricane chamber.
Felice learning to fly.
Hanging out by the fountain.
Peter is really excited.
Everyone shoehorned into the Odyssey for the trip down to Legoland. I will stress at this point that the idea of visiting a theme park was none of my doing.
Such a happy guy.
Ewok and my nostrils.
I’m happy I can deny piggyback rides.
At least there was something cool there.
It’s a nice mold.
I can only imagine how many molds Lego uses.
Some girl vandalizing Churchill.
I don’t think that’s the Vietnam Veterans memorial. It’s the tomb of the unknown hot dog.
The models were pretty cool.
And it was a dream come true for Henry.
I need to get one of those for home.
Still having fun…
A girl and her droid.
More steamboats. There was also sunburn and puking.
He has three legs, as do all cats, but is missing the fourth one.
Peter and I cobbled together a simple launcher for paper rockets.
Charlotte counted down from 100.
Harry donned safety gear.
There was a bit of dribbling as well.
