California Trip

Ralph riding the Flow Rider in Mission Beach with Mike our brother in law was definitely a highlight...

Wipe out...
Knowing wipe out is inevitable...
Mike practiced on the flow rider with Ralph for one hour then stepped it and went on the big wave... he was grinning the rest of the night... what an adrenaline junky. 
This little boy is the sweetest little monster ever! 

We also went to Universal Studios and Sea World it was a whirlwind of a trip with just one full day at the beach but it was so nice to get some sun and play for a bit with Ralph's whole family kiddies and all!

The perfect activity for a rainy weekend in the autumn... canning.  There's something about storing up food for the coming winter months that makes me recall my inner animal instincts.  Now if only I would be allowed to just eat a lot, build up some fat stores, and hibernate for the winter... that would be the life.  Actually, there is just something so beautiful about the pretty colored food canned in those glass jars all lined up nice and tidy.  Wow, I've become my mother!
