remembering powell... Karl

Sometimes I want to post something really bad.  But the real memories are so big and great that I get overwhelmed.  Like Christmas.  We had a great trip.  Thanks to nice friends.  

I will start with just one photo. 
This one is funny for a few reasons.  

1- Uh, life jacket anyone?  We were wondering why he looked so slim.  He was wondering why it felt like he was drowning before the boat pulled him up.  You know how I say something is So Eva and So Samuel?  This one is So Karl.  Whoops.
2- If someone did a trick, Karl would try it.  So one day we spent a bunch of time telling Karl to do different tricks and he would try them until he got it.  We would say, "Just spin while you jump," kind of making stuff up.  And he would try it.  
3- If Karl's job doesn't work out, he can start being in ads for men's hair color.  He is growing the beard for a family contest.  The mustache is his own addition.  I look at this photo and I have to remind myself who it is.  It is not softening up.  I just don't like it at all.  And for whatever reason, Samuel hates it big time.  But if it made us some money...  
As the beard is getting bushier it is reminding me more of this.

Oh, but back to the topic...
Karl surfing.  Karl in one of his several attempts to do some spinny thing.  He finally got it and provided much entertainment in the learning process.
Karl playing in the quick sand.  I don't know if it was real but it was just like the stuff I saw on Looney Tunes (so it must be, right?).
