Thanks to The Photography Post for the idea.
We celebrated this morning by sleeping in, looking in our stockings, then opening too many presents.
First, we posed for pictures in front of the Christmas tree.
Ho! Ho! Ho! *<:-)
Yesterday was Melissa’s first day of school. No, it’s not first grade for Melissa,1Not even close… but taking her picture is still an important Logan family tradition.
We’re so proud of her!2As we are of all our wonderful kids. :-)

I accompanied Melissa on a flight to California. She’s returning to school; I’m coming to work.
This was the view out the window.
My apologies to those who sat near for all the shutter sounds.
It’s not the only time I’ve sat in 18F; I’ve been there before.
I brought my bike along as we deliver Melissa to college so I could bike to work in Folsom. That’s a first for me.
I was able to ride along the American River bike trail part of the way, so I took some pictures. I made a mistake, took a wrong turn, and ended up going over the freeway, so I could see all the poor drivers trapped in their “cages.” So sad on such a beautiful day… :-(
Update. Of course, the commute goes both directions, but after work, I biked to brother Bob’s house and enjoyed his cool pool with the rest of the family (but not Bob, but that’s a story for another day). Ah, the perfect way to end a day. Grandma and Grandpa brought food over for a picnic supper. Nice!
I then biked along Lake Natoma back to the Logan family “bed and breakfast.”

Our vacation started with a little too much excitement late Monday evening: a midnight call to 9-1-1, an ambulance ride to Bend, and a couple of days in the hospital for Melissa.
All is well once again, and Melissa is ready for her vacation to start.
This is our second vacation ambulance ride. I think that’s enough, gang.
Thanks to a last-minute invite from Dave and Rachel, we are spending another marvelous weekend at Lincoln City. Friday evening, we went to Road’s End State Park to watch the sunset.
Update. I took a video using my cheap camera. Here it is.
What a beautiful day! If anything, it was too hot. Checking the weather said we got to 68Â° today — toasty.
We went to Rood Bridge Park, crashed a couple of senior “open house” parties, and enjoyed the sun. I had to take a sky shot from the shade, where I was trying to stay cool.
With apologies to Chicago.
