Next Sunday Bob & I are leaving on vacation for a week.  We are going to Sequoia National Park for a couple of days, and then Yosemite for 4 nights.  We have been hiking to get in training for a possible attempt at climbing Half Dome, which is a big challenging rock.

This past Tuesday we took a tram from Palm Springs at the desert floor up to the Mount San Jacinto State Park.  (  Then we climbed 6 miles to San Jacinto Peak.  Our friend Dave took this picture of me at the top.  I really enjoyed the 6 miles up, but the 6 miles down were killer at the end.  I'm doubtful for Half Dome now, but the hiking we have done this year has been really fun and challenging.

Lily at 12 weeks

This little girl just keeps growing! Here are some recent pictures of Lily during and after bathtime. We both think that she is looking more "Mutschler" now--especially when she is sleepy. She is wowing us with her 9.5 hour sleep strechtes.

Love to All,
Luke, Ashley, and Lily

Star Trek

OK, who saw the new Star Trek movie and what did you think?

I took Brett and a friend of his to see it on Saturday, and we really enjoyed it. It was interesting to watch it with someone who didn't know anything about the old Star Trek series.

Let's hear the reviews...

Kelly's prom and Block Island

Here are the latest weekend photos: Kelly and her friend Matt acting silly while the umpteenth photo was taken of their group getting ready to go to the Junior Prom. They fit 14 people into that limo! And you should have seen the crowd of parents standing around taking pictures.

The other one is Brett and some buddies waiting for the ferry to take them for a weekend of biking on Block Island with their Scout troop. Strangely, both Stevens kids are in blue.
