On that note I need to warn you about some of the material though. There are a couple of rape scenes in the book as well as some intense battles. If you can handle these few pages of this epic novel then you're in for a real treat.
I can't recommend this novel enough. It has certainly made its way into my top 10 list. Let me know if you read it.

Today, Ruby was at home with Lora and took two or three steps. So, I guess that means by Christmas we might have a terror on our hands. Luckily, Ruby will be visiting all of her grandparents homes and therefore the terror will be shared. Lucky you.

Words can't describe it. The views of Lake Tahoe were breathtaking. Can't wait for summer to return with the thermals.
If you want to see the stats on the flight you can click below. It allows you to zoom in and even view it in Google Earth. Just so you know I was using a GPS to track the flight.

On Saturday evening we watched the sunset while soaking in a great little hot spring as a family. Don't we look like a happy family?
The evenings were a bit chilly and here we are getting ready to read a story before bed. Ruby did pretty well. Although on Sunday we had our first experience with vomiting baby.

Also, love the weather here. Yesterday it only got up to 89 degrees and sunny. Everyone thinks it is really hot here but that's not the case. Down in Sacramento it was over a 100 degrees. Love it!
The other thing I did yesterday was meet Andy up at Lake Tahoe for some sailing on his boat. It's a great boat with a built in diesel motor. The winds were light, unusual for late afternoon Tahoe, but we had a great time. The boat is very easy to sail. Should be fun to have access to such a gem. William and Dad the invite has been delivered. Sailing on Tahoe is amazing. I feel like a character from Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous... and it's not even my boat.

She liked her sweet potatoes so much that she insisted on licking the spoon as we were cleaning up. She's one cute baby.
On another note, she's sitting up all by herself now. She does start to lean a bit from time to time so one of us needs to be there to stop her from falling on her face. She's such a strong baby.
There's a great hotdog shop near our house and so Tim and I decided to stop and grab a dog while Ruby slept in her new carrying system. Mom's friend handed down the backpack and we don't think it was ever used. We're stoked!
We then went to the food Co-op and bought a sweet potato for the Rubster for her first real food experience. Tim can't wait for the poop that will ensue. Bye-bye to breast milk poo diapers and hello SMELLY ones.
We plan on doing some backpacking soon and so decided to try out our backpacking carrying system. It seemed to work just fine. Her body is still a bit small but she didn't mind it. I think we could even strap a tent or sleeping bag under her feet. Pretty cool!

Fork of the American for a girls paddle to celebrate Ann's birthday.
It has been too long since we were on the river together. While we
were having girl time, Tim and Eric enjoyed a baby and beers picnic by

to take gumby to see Wolverine Origins at the drive-in. It had been
a long time since Tim or I had been to the drive-in and thought this
may be a good option to see movies with ruby. The van worked out
great except that it was during the first heat wave of the season. So
all three of us were sweating. The nice thing about being at the
drive-in is that I could strip down into my underware and relax with
some wine and popcorn and no one complained.

We then loaded up the car and drove four hours to the AL/FL coast to a place affectionately known as the "Redneck Riviera", Gulf Shores. We spent four nights there hanging out with my parents, 2 brothers, and Erin, John's girlfriend. We had a blast getting sunburned, swimming, drinking, and of course playing some boardgames.
The family on the Riviera
We will be driving down to New Orleans today and then fly back home tomorrow. Ruby is in my arms now so typing is difficult. Got to sign off now.
Reading a good book.
