California Time

Dane at La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles.
Looking down into the tar that they are excavating for bones.

Dane at Disneyland at 7am after walking a mile from our hotel.
On Tom Sawyer's island with a ball of bones.
The charactors of Jessie and Woody from Toy Story.
We ran into Pocohantas.
Had to have a carousel ride.
We met Mickey Mouse in his house.
The fountain in Toon Town.
At Santa Monica Beach. The water was freezing but Dane body surfed for over an hour.
Santa Monica Pier
Dane at the park next to the pier inside the dragons mouth. There was mist coming out of his nostrils and eyes that ligh up at dark.
Shay sunburned and beat up after Scout Camp. HAPPY 13th BIRTHDAY!
We served breakfast in bed for Shay the day after his birthday because he was still at scout camp on his birthday. He completed almost 6 merit badges. Good work Shay!
Devree had an awesome time at Especially for Youth or EFY for short. She said there were so many fabulous teachers that she could really feel the spirit and she met a lot of wonderful people from lots of places. She was a little sad that the harsh reality was the boys paid attention to the "pretty" girls. That is something that Todd and I have worried about every since she got sick. We are truly blessed that Devree has recovered so well but we are hoping that some day, some boy, will want more than the outward package. We are keeping the faith.
Thank you Kalene for cutting my hair beautiful. Thank you Mom and Dad for letting us stay with you and feeding us so well. I really appreciate that I could can so many wonderful fruits at your home. I love you both and look forward to seeing you again in a couple of weeks.
One more picture of the 13th year-old birthday boy! I love you Shay and am so happy with the great young man you are becoming.

There is someone out there for Devree and they are going to be so lucky, when they get her. We can't wait to see you in a month.
