Cool kids bedroom

This is a pretty cool bedroom.  They separated the two beds from a bunk-bed and built a loft.  I am looking forward to doing something like this when the kids get older.

Biking to Independance

We just got our son a "big kid" bicycle.  After he helped me with putting on the training wheels, we went out for a ride around the park.

While out there, I envisioned him getting older riding his bike.  I can see him riding around the park, while we play there.  Then when he is older, I can see him riding his bike with his friends through the complex.  Then I can see him riding around the block, not crossing the streets, when he is a little bit older.

I think that this is one of the major milestones of childhood, where they become more independent.

120 foot water baloon

This page has a fun project that you can do with kids.  Using 50' of surgical tubing, you can make a 120' water balloon.

Cozi Central

Cozi Central looks like a pretty interesting site.  This site is targeted towards families to help organize schedules and communication.  Cozi Central reminds me of the next generation of the 3Com Audrey, which we had one of.

On Cozi Central you can see and edit the calendars for each family members.  This will help you find times to make appointments for multiple family members.  Also you can use the site to send messages to each other.  You can configure the messages to be sent through SMS or email.

Cozi also lets you share and manage shopping lists.  This in itself is not that interesting, but when you are away from your computer, you can have the list read to you or sent to you as a text message.

You can also sync these calendars with Outlook on Windows

World's worst Father's Day gifts

The San Francisco Chronicle has an article that lists the worst gift ideas for Father's Day.  I do remember giving my dad bottles of Old Spice.  (I do need to call him later today.)

Tired Dog

Today, I decided to check out the Guadalupe River Park, so I packed our daughter into the stroller, and got the dog on the leash, and we headed out.

We ended up walking a little over 6 miles.  The walk was great, but the interesting thing was how these breed traits started appearing acting towards the end of the walk. 


Look... Over there... Don't you see it....  No, you have to stand in the shade to see it, you can't see it while you stand in the sun.


Smell.  There in the shade near the bench.  So interesting.... Smells so...  No, I'm not ready to go, this is too interesting

He is not any of these breeds, but was just very tired and hot.
