mt diablo the quick way

Caralyne spent the night at a friends house Saturday, so after we dropped her off the three of us drove to the peak of Mount Diablo and hung out for a bit.

I got a little queasy on the drive up, and I think Owen did too. Hiking up to the peak was easier in that respect at least :

Whew, made it to the 1K mark…

Owen and I playing with pebbles, a milk jug, and two planter buckets

todo

Still fun…

Owen’s showing me the drill, small rocks (ones that float) go from the bucket into the jug

todo

Then they go back into the bucket

I think I almost got it down

Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t hear you. I was busy sorting pebbles

Back at home, Owen decided to colonize my chair, he explained that it was manifest destiny, and he’d be willing to give the chair back to me at a later date where it would be seen as a “chair”-itable thing to do

todo

Now he’s leaving my chair, but only to leave it unguarded and defenseless

Great, now I’ve got a hyper Aussie in my lap :)

A hyper Aussie that likes the camera

See, what a camera hog

Zoey seems bored of our antics
