Here's a video of one of the dog sled starts, I think it was a 6-dog team.
Here's a sled finishing and heading back to the parking lot.
This is a video of skijoring, which is one or two sled dogs pulling a driver who's on X-country skis. A gal told me this is really taking your life in your hands, and I believe her. These two-dog teams went on a 2.5-mile course full of hills--crazy.

Grandma and Grandpa Cassingham got Dommy a little indoor tent with a tunnel entry for Christmas and he loves it. The first video is on Christmas day (where he's dressed like a candy cane) and the second is when we just took out the tent here in Lakeview last night. Dad plans to hook it up with boxes and doors to form a mini Habitrail here in the living room for the little rascal!

Between Christmas and New Year's we went hiking with the Allens. Audra, Eric, Liam, and Elizabeth went showed us a nice hiking area near Rancho San Antonio (I think) with a great view of the Bay. The hike was a little longer than we originally expected, but a great way to work off some holiday eating.
Dommy chowing down under Grandma's careful watch in the antique high chair.
Troy came down from San Mateo and Nikki came down from Redwood City for an afternoon to visit with Alex and Kate.
A nice photo of the Cassinghams with Aunt Linda and Cousin Michelle after dinner on Jan. 2nd.
We went into the ritzy Fairmont hotel downtown to use the bathrooms and saw their lifesize gingerbread house, too. Dominic was playing inside with random kids while we listened to some jazz. If you look closely, you can still see the flour on the gingerbread!

After the aquarium we took a drive down to Carmel (where Clint Eastwood was mayor) and checked out the beach and fancy downtown. All we could afford was coffee, but it was really good coffee!
