Poor Laura. Saturday she didn't feel very well, and on Sunday Joel did an emergency drive to Victorville to borrow our friends Liz and Justin's nebulizer machine. Laura had the same breathing problem last year and the Dr. checked out a machine to us to use while the one they ordered for Laura came in the mail. Since the move, I can only find the machine, but not any of the tubing or mask. She is doing better, but is still not back to her normal cheerful self. Joel gave her a blessing on Sunday night but keep her in your prayers.

San Diego Beach

Joel was the only one brave enough to go all the way into the water. He took the boogie board and rode some waves!

Here's one ball...

Wow! Two balls!

San Castle. A little while later an old couple were walking by on the beach and the woman just walked right through the castle, knocking down some towers! The man pointed with his cane, showing her she had just messed it up and she just shrugged! The man, still leaning heavily on his cane, nicely walked around.

Warming up on the hot sand

Heavenly breakfast! Trader Joe's whole wheat waffle mix with fresh peaches and whipped cream! Delicious!!!

Yummy dinner

Yum! Here we are outside eating a very good dinner. Joel bbq'd chicken drumsticks and we also had corn, pasta with herb sauce and honeydew. I had thought to roll Laura's high chair outside, but Joel put her little chair in the regualr chair and it was the perfect booster! After dinner we went to the Halloween store to get the wig for my costume. Joel will be Woody and Laura is going to be so cute!
I had to take this picture of Laura in this very cute outfit! She posed for the first shot, but started running towards me in the second. What a cutie!

Feed the ducks, tuppence a bag

Here we are in San Diego! We took a walk to feed the ducks and then the geese started to come! Joel had to scoop up Laura because he was a little worried. Deanne got matching shorts for Laura and Elizabeth to wear. Laura had a fun time imiatating Elizabeth. If she climbed a tree, Laura wanted to as well. What a fun trip!

Tragic Demise

Here we are in San Diego Aug 20-22 visiting Deanne, Gokhan, Elizabeth and Rosie. Rosie was on summer vacation from my mom's 1st grade class spending the summer with Elizabeth. Laura loved to pet her and wanted to pick her up and squeeze her, but we had to say, No, only soft touching. Sadly, when Rosie came back to my parent's home last weekend the oxygen change was too great for her heart to handle all at once. My dad showed Gokhan and De how to massage her heart, but all to no avail. Bart and Gokhan dug a hole where Elizabeth placed the box. That night at dinner we all said something nice about Rosie.
Good bye Rosie!
