Greetings from sunny California.
I'm having a great time. I've watched an hour of Star Wars: Clone Wars with Ilan; I highly recommend renting the DVD for any serious Star Wars fan. It fills in a lot of what happens between Episodes II and III. Yesterday we went to the "Happy Hollow Park and Zoo" and pet goats, fed a Llama, and watched a puppet show of Little Red Riding Hood. A fabulous time was had by all. My nephews are adorable and my sister and brother-in-law are super nice to me, so all is well.
Note to friends: My VOIP line is up and running. Please be mindful when calling of the time difference and the fact that my nephews go to sleep around 8 pm PST.
