I also briefly thought of the remote control helicopter I got for Christmas which I proceeded to crash in the neighbor's yard and render useless within minutes. I was glad that the pilot only gave me a headset.
I asked him how young you had to be to go in his helicopter and he said 2 to 3 months old, so we might go back and bring Ella as she was quite annoyed that she didn't get to go this time.

Summer is coming...
Sunday was an amazing day which had temperatures in the low 70s, or 23°C. We went to the beach and had fun walking along and playing in the sand (although Ella did not want to share any of the sand with anyone else on the beach). I managed to fit in another amazing mountain bike ride without killing myself, a surf session, and Erin took a beautiful jog along a secluded coastline and sent pictures over her phone while I was stuck inside with the kids who were napping.
|Ella's feet have grown very fast.|
Flat Stanley is a 14 mm laminated person that was sent to me from my niece. Supposedly you are supposed to take pictures of Flat Stanley and send them back to their elementary school, and then send a postcard to the elementary school address to said Stanley- we then have to mail him back to the US. We plan to bring Stanley to see the donkeys, go surfing, to Ella's preschool, visit some earthquake rubble, etc. It will be very difficult/impossible not to pose Stanley in some inappropriate and off-color photos.
