Spectacular Dantes View

Image
It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful. Vehicles over 25ft or longer are prohibited on this road. Please watch our short video  Road to Dantes View  to see the road.  There were few cars when we arrived at The Dantes View but those people were out exploring around. It wasn't crowded at all in fact we were the only ones there enjoying the 360 degrees of breathtaking view of Death Valley from 5475 ft high above Sea Level.  We didn't stay long because it was windy and cold.  It would have been nice to explore the area but it was also getting late in a day. There was a Bee Hazard caution sign on the road but we didn't even get the change to see any. Maybe it's because we

No No No Noodle Boy

NO was my boy's favorite word but he's not saying it often now. It helps a lot by explaining to him and giving him other options instead of just say No. It's challenging but he's getting it and I'm getting it to.



Noodle Boy - this is a short video of him eating noodles like crazy. I was in awe seeing him ate like that. He ignored that bowl of noodles for a while. He was busy playing and messing up the house then Suddenly, he was in front of the TV with his face on the bowl eating like a dog, I was too late to capture that, but watch how he ate the rest.  I guess he was just being a kid and loves eating noodles.



He was being a noodle here with his Lola's headband. He put that there himself. We actually had a hard time taking it back from him.


Another beautiful and sunny day here in the great Pacific North West.  Here is a view of Mt. Baker from my back yard. Just gorgeous!

  3. Don't all little kids go through a "no" stage? I'd love to know how you are explaining to him that there are other words than no. Is there a trick or method to that?

    1. Yes, most kids go through the no stage. And I think my boy just passed the nononono stage. Will sometimes when I have something I want him to do or if there's something he shouldn't do, and when he start saying no, I'll come to him and say yes! and try to explain the best way I can. Being consistent is a key really and trying to avoid saying no without explanation.
