Yeah, I got bronchitis. "Souvenir" was the cleverest thing I could think of to say.
Other than that, it's great to be home again. The drive up was very pleasant; our new car is very comfortable and the miles seemed to melt away. (The XM radio sure didn't hurt either.) Now I'm just trying to take it easy and recuperate, although "taking it easy" for Stay At Home Daddy still means changing and feeding the family, dishes, laundry, bills, etc. Sigh.

Ah, San Diego. After the frigid north, I can't tell you how nice it was to be in a place where you could go outside with wet hair and not get a cold. (I caught the cold in Edmonton and it's been following me halfway around the continent. I'm mostly better but can't seem to shake this dry cough. That's what happens when Daddy doesn't get a break.)

We went through US customs in Vancouver. When we entered Canada, Sarah and I showed our Canadian birth certificates. When we re-entered the US, the whole family showed our American passports. I got the guy to stamp Nathan's passport; he is now a very well-traveled Bean.

After Edmonton, our multi-city tour took on a whirlwind aspect and I haven't had a chance to update until today - more than a week later. There is other news, but I'll try to do it in chronological order.

We've made it to the first leg of our grand vacation. First stop: Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. City of Champions, home of the greatest hockey team that ever was, home to the largest mall and largest indoor amusement park in the world, and my birthplace.

We know Nathan is going to start crawling soon. He's also gotten a lot more active, personable, and fun to watch in the last few months. We knew we were going to need a camcorder.

The very fact that I can even write an update must be a positive sign.

My web host just informed me that they've gone green. That may not sound like a big deal (how much energy could teh Internets possibly take?) but it actually is. You know the computer under your desk? Imagine a computer ten times the size. Now imagine twenty of those. That's a small server farm. It uses a lot of electricity, and it generates a lot of heat, which has to be air conditioned using more electricity. My web host now gets all that electricity from wind power.
