I only have a couple of minutes to post before getting the little ones to bed, so I thought rather than blathering on about some remembered story, I would post some additional pictures of Heidi from the Redwoods trip…

I have a couple of other pics of Heidi as well, but am having problems with the memory allocation with the hosting company (1and1.com), so the upload keeps crashing.

On our trip to the Redwoods back in 2004, the only large community in California that we visited was Crescent City.  Here’s a picture of Layne lugging Mikaela around at the playground we visited.

The one lingering memory that I have of Crescent City was how grimy it was, with lots of garbage around.  It was definitely a change from the Oregon communities that we were vacationing in.

And since you are wondering where the real scenery pictures are (since I took so many of them), here’s another one…

I’m lagging behind on my “redwoods trip posts” – as I was trying to troubleshoot something on the new theme, and we had a pretty busy weekend.  Sorry for the delay, all of you readers out there (about 3 as far as I can tell).

IIRC (standing for “If I Recall Correctly” – a phrase that I will probably be using more and more during the years remaining to me, as my brain cells die off or just turn off), I had purchased a new camera shortly before this particular vacation trip.  It was a Konica Minolta 4 MP camera, with 16x optical zoom, and some video capability as well.  I really liked my camera and took a lot of pictures on this particular redwood trip (ooh – look – there’s another redwood tree – I’d better stop and get a picture of it), while other family members grew rather jaded to the joys of picture taking.

look - another redwood tree - this one with a twisting bark pattern, gotta get a picture

So, I have quite a lot of pictures from the trip – a certain number of which I am going to post over the next few days.  I’ll try and keep it interesting.

And that’s it for today, as it is suppertime.

We had lunch in northern California – I believe this was just on the outskirts of Crescent City (more on that later).  Sadly, this was the last time that we ever saw our large green lunchbag – shown being bumped off the bench by Daelynn.  Lori still rues the losing of it, as it was really handy.

I should probably make up some tag to include with each Rett picture where he is making faces.  Let me know if you come up with any good ideas for it.

One of my purposes for the hubcrate.com site is sharing family photos.  The majority of photos that have been taken were around special family events, and most of those seem to be when we are on vacation.  Possibly that is when Dad is out of his everyday routine, and more in picture-taking mode.

The next series of photos that I’ll post are dated September 2004, and were taken during a day trip down the Oregon coast into the California redwoods.  To kick things off, here’s a picture of the kids (less Heidi who was a young toddler at the time).  True to form, Rett can’t keep a straight face while there is a photo-op going on.
