Family History Journal - 29 May 2009

Not a big genealogy day, but a lot of family history made and enjoyed today. Tami and Audrey came last night, and we got Lolo tonight with her friend Abigail.

* Managed to sneak in and read email, Twitter and blogs when Audrey went down for her morning nap at 7:15 (she was up at 5:30...). The First Look at - Post 3 posted this morning. Interesting that no one has really commented pro or con on this site - are there so few people that really care? Maybe my use of screen shots isn't productive - does anybody bother reading them? Got cleaned up and we left at 10 a.m. after Linda came home and Audrey woke up and I got to dress her.

* Went to the San Diego Zoo and met up with Lolo and Abigail and Michelle, Abigail's mom. We took the sky ride over to the mesa, then walked through the new Elephant Odyssey exhibit. It stretches out perhaps a quarter of a mile, with lots of viewing areas. Not many animals yet. The elephants were there, and a jaguar, but not much else. Had lunch, then walked back to the exit and headed for home. Got here at about 2 p.m. and Audrey went down for her nap. After reading everything, I went in and took a nap too.

* Up at 3 p.m., Linda was on the computer so I did chores out back, and came back and wrote Content Count. We left at 5 p.m. to pick up Lolo and Abigail and then went to Plaza Bonita mall for dinner and the play area. We were home before 8. Tami got the girls bathed and down while I watched the last 3 innings of the Padres game.

* After the game (Pads lost 3-0 to the Rocks) I read everything and wrote this post. I'm tired from the day - carrying either girl is tiring, and I carried Lolo on my shoulders several times - it's actually easier than carrying her in my arms.

Genealogy today was 2.0 hours at most - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour writing blog posts, and 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook. That's it. Lots of family history moments, though, and we have some pictures of the Elephant Odyssey experience.

Hi, just dropped by to read your blog. Sounds like you spend as much time as I used to a few years ago on genealogy. I don't do much these days because it all seems to be dead ends in more ways than one. I've exhausted all my Australian based genealogy until they release more records. From time to time someone crops up out of the blue who turns out to be a relative of an ancestor we share and then off I go again.
