Uncle Karl Visits

We had the fortunate opportunity to spend a couple days with Uncle Karl Petersen, who made a special trip to see us the week after Christmas. At the last minute we decided to go to Disneyland, only to find that it had sold out that day. So instead we headed down to Laguna beach and had a great afternoon enjoying the beach.

Mom Takahashi: This picture just make me weak in the knees.

Katie: I don't think the girl was too happy to come out and see Uncle Karl taking orders. But hey - she took several minutes to come out and this is Golden Spoon we're talking about here! One can't keep customers waiting for that stuff! ;)

Joe: Love it!

Katie: Almost always something mixed with Peanut Butter. Yummmm...

Andy looks like he's shuddering with disgust, as he imagines settling for something fat free instead of getting the Coldstone ice cream next-door.

Mom Peckham: Serious stuff.

Katie: It was so funny to watch these gulls slipping around on the slimy rock at this one spot on the beach. There was muck or algae or something REALLY slick, and unfortunately Uncle Karl and I discovered this the hard way (but not like you might think). We were standing there as two girls walked up to the area (there was a little waterfall, so it attracted people's attention). Uncle Karl said, "Go ahead and walk across it." I think he thought they were intimidated by the birds standing there, and weren't sure if they should keep walking if it would disturb the birds. So one took courage and marched across the rock, straight towards the birds. Not two steps across, her feet were right out from under her and she landed hard on the ground! I think Karl felt bad, but we didn't know how slick it would be. Less than 5 minutes later, another woman did exactly the same thing! This time, she did it before we could stop her, or we would have. But watching the birds slip was hilarious! They never actually landed, but they'd look all gruff and proper, like fat old English gentlemen, and then they'd bobble around and catch their balance. :) :)

Mom Peckham: I like the shirt, Daniel (and yours, of course, Katie).

Katie: You wouldn't necessarily guess it, but they are both from the same country: I bought mine in Manila! :D

Mom Peckham: I love this!

Mom Peckham: That's my little brother!

Mom Peckham: That's my son! Awesome picture!

Mom Peckham: I like it!

Mom Peckham: Awesome! You even look alike (kinda)

Daniel: Almost looks like the tropics!
