Summer's vacations

Time to backfill all the stuff I haven't written for the last two months.

First off, the four of us went on an amazing hike in the French Alps.  It was four days / three nights, with each night spent at a "refuge".  These places are wonderful, as they provide room and board so all you have to carry is clothes and personal stuff (books, flashlights, band-aids...).  They are generally not accessible by road, so all the food comes in by mule, hiker, or helicopter.  Pictures (commented) can be found here:

In July/August we were in Kentucky for my sister's wedding.  The wedding was a great weekend -- including cousins we had not seen for 33 years -- and the pictures (uncommented) are here : http://picasaweb.google.fr/jeff.spock/JennDavid02

We then took some time to go hiking, climbing, kayaking, etc.  Kai, my nephew, was with us so if you see a third child in the photos don't start wondering.  Kentucky was beautiful, and as if to compensate for the embarrassing idiocy of the creationism museum, there are excellent kid-oriented science museums in both Lexington and Louisville. 

We also visited the factory where the Louisville Slugger baseball bats are made, a horse farm, and the Wild Turkey Distillery.  The latter, of course, was not really for the kids.

Louis is now proudly wearing a Lousville baseball cap.
