At the beach

In current events: the town of Los Olivos apparently lowered their flag to half-mast and had an impromptu motorcade to Neverland on the news of Michael Jackson's death. I'm glad someone considered him one of their own.

(We were only here on a full-mast day. Sorry.)

Fun at the wharf: Kira shows off her coloring.

Greetings from vacation-land. First stop, a picnic lunch and outdoor wine tasting in Paso Robles.

Next: arrival at the "family vacation center" at UCSB. The accommodations are on the Soviet side, the food a little too... Kraft, but we're on the beach and enthusiastic college students are playing with my kids while we go wine tasting and try new restaurants. So on the balance, mostly a plus.

This photo taken right after Kira ate her sixth drumstick and two chocolate chip cookies. At least she likes the food.

Ian and Kira getting ready for the pajama party.

Afore-mentioned wine-tasting.
