Here are the two younger offspring mocking their aging father mercilessly as he makes a sterling effort to improve his physical condition.
Maman offered papa the stepper for Christmas 2003, and he jumped on it regularly, for a thousand steps until the counter broke (made in China), and then for 25 minutes until it broke again, and again. It died completely by 2006.
The process fascinated the younger boys, who exercise constantly and all day long without the benefit of anything more substantial than a soccer ball or goalie gloves!
Just to make sure that Papa got the point, Charlie one day jumped on the stepper and effortlessly, without breaking a sweat, stepped more steps than his father in less time. Thank you, lad!
The photo on the right above was taken at home at Daphné's family birthday celebration (of course, there was also the friends' party, on video, and the school celebration!) at home in August 2000. THIRTEEN!!
Here is a group of Disney photos.
Not surprisingly, almost all of these photos were taken on vacation.

The occasion was Charlie's 12th birthday, in August 2007. Alban was getting ready to cut a little more cake, as he was indicating with his left hand!
Finally, papa spent almost a year, June 2003 through April 2004, living and working in Orange County (in Southern California), 400 miles from the family, and commuting home to Santa Cruz on weekends. On a family level, it was not a good move. The family visited his home away from home from time to time. It was in an apartment complex in Irvine called Villa Siena, where this was taken in the swimming pool late in 2003. It's a bit blurred, but you can see that it was fun. We sure love pools!
