Isabelle washes the windows of Grandpa's car, July 2012

Larry & Dave at Oshkosh, Wisconsin, for the 2012 air show in July.  The airshow had lots of old warbirds, Larry's favorite kind of airplane.

A B-29.  They offered rides and Larry was tempted -- but the airplane is almost as old as he is.

F8F Corsair.

Various warbirds including P-51 Mustang, Mitsubishi Zero (replica), and Mitchell B-25.  See the video.

The guys waited patiently while the girls went shopping.

Sofi began volunteering on a farm in Sebastopol.  She takes care of chickens, sheep, goats, and pigs.  Our farm girl also drives a Kawasaki Diesel Mule.

This is "Yin," a lamb that thinks it is a dog.  It follows people around demanding to be petted.

Grammy and Sofi at the farm with goats, December 2012.  The goats are surprisingly friendly.  When a baby goat nurses, it wags it's tail.  Uncanniney!

This was the "bee in her bonnet."  No harm done.

Dave and Larry at the Margaritaville Restaurant rooftop in Las Vegas in July.  Would you like to see a video of their visit to the Heart Attack Grill?
Wanna see their whole trip?  Both videos can play in hi-def - select 720p and go full screen.  Turn up your speakers for the second one.

We had our thirsty front lawn replaced with low-water plants in July.  Spoiler alert -- in the winter we had temps well below freezing and several plants died.
No problem.  We will replace them in the spring.

In the fall Zak joined the Santa Rosa High School junior varsity football team.  He is number 25.  August 2013.

It turned out to be a broken fibula, near the ankle.  He wore a cast for 8 weeks and is now almost fully recovered, building strength for running track in the spring.

Igor and Olivia visited in November.  See the entire visit.

Isabelle and Francisco accompanied Grandpa on his daily walk in Santa Rosa, part of his routine when picking up Sofi and Zak from school.
