Just sitting on the porch…

July 27, 2005 — 4 Comments

Tonight I am on vacation. I am at my sister’s cabin up at Lake Arrowhead, CA. It is 7:45 p.m. The weather is perfect (78 degrees). The water was perfect today. My oldest got up on his skis on the second attempt. This is what vacation is all about. I’m not trying to brag, I’m just telling you how it is.

Right now I am out on the deck overlooking the lake watching my son ski again. It is a proud papa moment. Between skiing and wiping out and getting back up again, I am checking some of my favorite blogs.
