Spectacular Dantes View

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

Boy Throws Tantrum over swimming and Dog Howling with him

Happy leap year day! There's a little note on Facebook about do something special on Feb. 29. So, I thought I should take my little boy to the pool since he hasn't been there since he was 2 years old and I know he would love to go swimming. We went to Mary Siah Recreation Center for their 4-4:45pm open swim. Thought that should be enough time for him. He was shivering the whole time we were on the pool but still didn't want to get out of water. I have managed to get him out but on our way out he started to say "go swimming". Go swimming, swimming, swimming! I told him we go swim again tomorrow but he doesn't listen. When we got home, he didn't want his jacket nor his boots taken off. He throws tantrum and our dog Sandy howls with him too. I think he spent more time crying and kept saying Go Swimming than his swimming time. Watch his video below to see his reaction and listen to him and the dog.

Who's birthday is it?

My boy think every time there's a birthday cake, it's his birthday. It's funny seeing his reaction when I said it's not his birthday its daddy's birthday. He screamed NO it's baby! and he started to cry. So this is what we did to daddy's cake. Watch what he did on grandma's birthday!
