We are back

And jet-lagged. In fact Squeak should be napping right now, but instead he is doing this:

Hi guys! I am not tired! Not at all!

New dog bed

Hey, Tony, this is my blanket, not a new dog bed for you!
Go sleep on furniture.

Baby's first blocks. Fun for the whole family.
Kostadis builds them, Nick destroys them.

I believe there are sweet potatoes in his ear.
Definitely in his nose.
Not clear if any are actually in his stomach.

Christmas Tree Farm

We will get the best tree. From the area. Over there.

Are these the best trees here?

Nick picks out his tree.



Our "small" tree.

Securing for transport.

Are you guys sure this is well attached?

Mission accomplished!

He is working very hard on the toes-to-mouth trick.

We are raising a geek.

If you start them out like this...(5 days old)

They end up like this. (Almost 6 months old)

Sunol Hike

It's been raining the whole weekend and activity dog and activity baby were getting restless. Today was  nice, clear and warm (65 degrees!), so we went for a hike in Sunol Regional Wilderness. While most of Sunol is ridiculously steep, the hike to Little Yosemite is on a wide fire road and is definitely stroller-friendly. It's about two miles out and back, which took us an hour and a half or so since we were taking our time to smell the flowers, well, er, other stuff actually if you ask the dogs.
Heading out. Nick is looking for mushrooms.
We were hoping to find some chanterelles, but no luck.

Dogs lead the way.

Little Yosemite. Dogs went down into the creek, Nick and I stayed
on the road. 

Typical East Bay scenery. Soon these hills will be green and then
covered in wildflowers. I predict lots of visits to Sunol.

After the hike. Nick and Tony are tired. Polly not so much.

How to sh*t in the woods, baby edition.

PHP: So easy a child can do it

Ever wonder why Cafe World crashes all the time?
They make six month old babies write the code!

Pinky and The Brain

They are Pinky and The Brain,
Pinky and The Brain,
One is a genius, the other's insane.

Now, which one is Brain and which one is Pinky?
Hey, Brain, what are we going to do tonight?
Same thing we do every night, Pinky, try to take over the world.
