The Damn Family has left the city…

20 Jun

First travel day Yesterday got us to just outside Yakima, WA via some very wet but beautiful National Parks.  A short travel day (which was good given our late departure), and I promise to get some photos up when we have cell reception again.  If we manage to roll out of here in the morning, as relatives are keeping us amazingly well-fed.  Moon is in peanut-butter cookie heaven.

Some brief updates:

  • Our former zip code has been named the most diverse in the US.
  • Happy Father’s Day, all you Dads out there!  Kevin received empty promises of a new phone, some re-branded to Daddy-O Brand boxed coffee drinks for the road, Wired’s Geek Dad book, some coupons for bear hugs, backrubs, and the like, and the chance to fall asleep in an armchair while holding sleeping babies (alas, I have no photos).  My father apparently received a dead Prius.  Hope other dads are getting what they wanted/needed, and having better automotive luck.
  • We leave for Oregon in the morning.  Hoping for better travel weather this time around.  Google Maps says it will be 5 hours and 50 minutes, but they aren’t counting potty breaks, diaper changes, or nursing stops.

Must go now; Moon is off to ride a horse!

    Not trip related, but we saw Kooza last night. I know you were interested in the high-wire fencing. Unfortunately it wasn’t swashbuckling fencing, or even real fencing. They more waggled swords at each other, like kids do with sticks, hitting each others swords, but there was no skill behind it.

    The rest of that act was really great though, most of it done without wires or a net, which made things extra scary, especially when one of them messed up her leapfrog jump and only managed to not fall by a lucky grab of the wire. A testament to their athleticism and dedication, after she got back onto the wire, and shook off the immediate adrenaline, she did it again and nailed it.

    Good luck on your drive to Oregon, say hello to your Mom from us.
