This was taken on January 16th. It’s a photo of Lucy and me getting Poison Oak.
It also represents our weekend plans getting canceled:
The kids didn’t get to see snow for the first time.
We missed Nana’s 90th birthday party.
We missed a sleepover with the Nickles.
It’s also two trips to the weekend emergency room, steroids and more steroids. I took Prednizone, which worked, but it’s not good for 3 year olds. She has a strong topical creme.
Lucy, today, is still covered in itchy rash.
That invisible poison oak flattened us.
Can you believe this is right across the street from Clarendon?
There are other pieces that he has been playing and practicing, but this one is kind of special because it’s famous!
I took this minutes after his lesson, when he had played it for the absolute first time.
So, this is actually his 3rd time playing it.
He was pretty excited, though he doesn’t show it in the video. Here is a self-portrait, posted a few minutes later on his Instagram:
I gave the Instagram App a try this weekend, over a short So. Cal Road Trip.
It was fun! The trip AND the app.
It’s all photo based, and you only follow who you want to. It’s so easy I think I’ll be sticking with it. (I Hope I don’t blog less because of it!)

And for those of you with no iPhone, here’s a sampling of what I posted:
Yes, the filters are cheap tricks. I feel like I’ve joined the Dark Side! You don’t have to use them. (We have a name for them: ‘Stupid Tone’) I thought I’d slum it In the name of fully trying it all out. Maybe It’s a guilty pleasure – like watching crap tv. I dunno. We’ll see.
