Here's The Next Post 'Bout Our New Bacation

Hi, it's me, Klu.

When we woke up in the morning (after Blu did some snorin' all night) we 'scovered that Auntie E and the kids live in the most beautiful place in the whole world. It's funny when you drive to a place at night and you can't see it. When you open your eyes in the morning, you make lots of 'scoveries. Our first 'scovery was that Jackson is the most beautiful place in the whole world ('cept for some places in Scotland and some other places in Washington and where we live in Colorado and stuff). Auntie E and the kids live right at the bottom of a ski mountain. Blu took me outside even before we ate breakfast (bears like breakfast, you know, but we couldn't wait) and showed me the ski mountain. Here's a photo of us lookin' at the ski mountain. I can't wait to go back in the winter to do some skiin'. You can tell that I'm Klu and he's Blu cuz his head is bigger than mine. He's still got more stuffin' than me.

We were bein' real quiet when we went outside, but Roma must have heard us, cuz she came out to look at the ski mountain too. I love Roma a lot, but I felt kinda squiggly inside when she came out, cuz me and Blu were talkin' 'bout some bear stuff, and we had to be polite and talk 'bout other stuff so Roma wouldn't feel left out. Here's a picture of us still lookin' at the ski mountain. A few days later, we hiked almost to the top. It was funny to be on a ski mountain when there wasn't any snow.

While we were sittin' there talkin' 'bout other stuff so Roma wouldn't feel left out, all the other kids woke up and came out too. Wilbs woke up cuz she was hungry. Pigs are pretty much always hungry, you know. Darla woke up cuz she wanted to look for another nest. I don't know why Bianca woke up. Here's a picture of all of us kids lookin' at the ski mountain.

Big Mummy came out just then and saw us all sittin' in the chair and said she needed to take a picture of us. So here's a picture of all us kids.

After we got done lookin' at the ski mountain, we went inside and Auntie E made us scrambled eggs. Um, maybe I need to go ask my Big Mummy if she'll make me scrambled eggs for lunch. My tummy is doin' some growlin'. Huh. Huh. That's funny. Sometimes bears growl with their voice cuz they're mad, and other times they growl with their tummy cuz they're hungry. Right now I'm just hungry.

Our New Bacation in Jackson, Wyoming

Hi, um, it's me Klu the Bear. (But I'm just a little, tame bear.)

We just got back from our new bacation to go visit Auntie E and Mr. Gumbles in Jackson, Wyoming. 'Cept Auntie E left me a comment and said I should call him Uncle Gumbles now. Huh. Huh. That's cuz they're gonna get married sometime soon. I like Uncle Gumbles a lot, cuz he's like Willy Wonka. He makes chocolate. We got to take a tour of his chocolate factory. Bears like chocolate a lot, you know. There were big vats of melted chocolate, and Uncle Gumbles took the lids off so we could see inside. I wanted to put my paw in, just to taste it, but Uncle Gumbles said I might fall in like Augustus Gloop, and that would be dangerous. (Big Mummy held onto Wilbs real tight to keep her from doin' any 'vestigatin.') I wasn't 'llowed to take any photos inside the chocolate factory cuz it's top secret.

But I'm tellin' 'bout our bacation all backwards. That's cuz I got so 'cited 'bout the Huckleberry Mountain Chocolates. You can buy them on Uncle Gumbles's website, 'specially if you are a businessbear and run a gift shop. I like the popcorn and the huckleberry bark the best.

Anyway, I looked out the front window of the car the whole way to Jackson cuz I was so 'cited to see Auntie E and the kids. I missed them something fierce. It was really late at night when we got there, but we got to stay up for a long time cuz we hadn't seen the kids since they moved away from Denver. Blu showed me the newspaper from Grand Teton National Park, and told me all 'bout the mama grizzly bear and her three cubs that everyone's been seein'. I was so 'cited to see Blu. I gave him a big bear hug and 'bout squeezed all his stuffin' out. (He's got more stuffin' than me. That's why his head is bigger than mine.) Here's a picture of Blu showin' me the newspaper with the photo of the mama grizzly bear.

Right when Blu was showin' me the newspaper with the picture of the mama grizzly bear, all the other kids came over to see too. I didn't like that very much. I wanted to spend some quality time with Blu, but all the other kids wanted to see the newspaper too. Here's a picture of all the kids lookin' at the newspaper. 'Cept Darla. She just made a nest in the blanket.

Then big Mummy said it was bedtime, and we'd get to see lots of stuff in the morning. I was so 'cited I couldn't go to sleep for forever. And Blu was doin' some snorin'. I forgot that Blu always does some snorin'. It kept me awake, 'cept I was so happy to see him that I couldn't be mad at him for snorin'. Some bears snore, you know. But not me. 'Cept when I have a cold. I think everybody snores when they have a cold.

The Last Post 'Bout Our Other Bacation Cuz Now I Gotta Write 'Bout Our New Bacation

Um, hi, it's me, Klu. I'm kinda behind on my posts cuz I've been havin' so many bacations. So this is gonna be the last picture from our bacation on the David B, and then I'll start writing 'bout our new bacation (we saw a bear).

Um, Wilbs was doin' so much 'vestigatin' on the David B that Big Mummy was scared she might fall overboard. It's really bad to fall overboard when you're on a boat. You could die. So Big Mummy had to hang onto Wilbs all the time. Here's a picture of Wilbs doin' some sittin' on Big Mummy's lap and lookin' at the scenery. You can see how Big Mummy has Wilbs's legs clamped between her knees. That was so she didn't go overboard.

Now I gotta go download my photos from our new bacation. I didn't get any photos of the wild bear, cuz we were kinda scared. But I took lots of photos of me and Blu (we're bears).

Wilbs Doin' Some 'Vestigatin'

Hi, it's me, Klu the Sailor Bear for today. I'm gonna be the Hikin' and Campin' and 'Splorin' Bear in a few days, when we go visit Auntie E and Mr. Gumbles and all the kids. But I gotta tell you 'bout the rest of our bacation on the David B.

There's lots of good food on the David B. That's cuz Auntie Ch is the best cook ever. She makes croissants from scratch (I liked the ones with chocolate inside) and she makes butter from scratch and lots of other stuff. My Big Mummy ate so much her belly got bigger, and Uncle Kermit called her his little sweet potato. (She didn't like that very much.) (Uncle Kermit's belly got bigger too. So did mine. And Wilbs'.) Wilbs did lots of 'vestigatin' 'bout the food cuz she's a pig and pigs are good eaters, you know. Here's a photo of Wilbs 'vestigatin' some blueberry muffins one morning. She got in trouble for 'vestigatin' cuz she got into the basket to do her 'vestigatin'. That meant she was touchin' everyone else's muffins too. It's not polite to touch other people's food, unless you're related to them.

More 'Bout The David B

Hi, it's me, Klu the Sailor,

'Cept I gotta tell you real quick 'bout bein' a sailor bear, cuz me and Uncle Kermit are gonna go on another bacation. It's only a quick bacation to go see Auntie E and the other kids. But I'm 'cited cuz I miss them somethin' fierce. So I gotta finish tellin' 'bout our bacation on the David B. But now that we FINALLY have the internet at our house, I can do my blog more.

Me and Wilbs did a lot of lookin' out the window when we were on the David B. Here's a picture of us lookin' out the window. You can see some islands and stuff. I like Washington a lot. I like lookin' at some islands.

We wanted Darla to do some lookin' out the window with us, but all she did was some fallin'. Baby ducks aren't very good at sittin' on window ledges. They are better at sittin' in nests, cuz that's where they come from. Here's a picture of Darla doin' some fallin' onto the settee. Every time she fell, she kicked her legs in the air and said 'mwack', but it sounded like she was laughin'. I think baby ducks like doin' some fallin'.

I gotta go do my packin' now. We're gonna leave to visit Auntie E on Thursday afternoon. It takes lots of hours to drive there, but that's okay cuz we like ridin' in the car. And I can't wait to see Roma and Blu and Bianca. I miss them somethin' fierce. Auntie E got a digital camera yesterday, so now she can take pictures of the kids and send them to us.

The 'Citing-est Thing: We're Back Online

Hi, it's me, Klu.

We're FINALLY back on the internet at our house. I'm really 'cited cuz I didn't like writin' my blog (Get A Klu) in the coffee shop with free wireless. And my Big Mummy was drinkin' too much coffee. She gets cranky if she drinks too much coffee. But we're back online now. You can't really tell in my photo, but me and Wilb'rina are watchin' the lights blinkin' on our router.

Now that we're FINALLY back on the internet at our house, I'll tell you more 'bout our bacation of a lifetime in my next post. I made a 'scovery lately: movin' is hard work. We still have some boxes that we haven't unpacked yet, and I can't find one of my Hot Wheels cars. But it's not quite a 'Zaster Zone anymore.

Makin' My Big Mummy Wake Up

Hi, it's me, Klu the Wake-Up Bear.

I had to do some interruptin' of my story 'bout our bacation of a lifetime. I'll tell you 'bout our bacation next time. This time I have to tell you 'bout something funny that happened this morning.

My Big Mummy is a good sleeper, so sometimes I get impatient for her to wake up in the mornings. Today I was feelin' impatient, so I was waitin' for her to wake up. She opened her eyes and she made a funny, squinchy face when she saw me.

She said, "Klu, I'm not ready to wake up yet. Can you please stop staring in my face." So I looked away.

She closed her eyes again, so I just did some more waitin'. Then she opened her eyes and said, "Klu, why do you have to get right up in my face every morning?"

I didn't know the answer to that question. But I backed up and did some thinkin' 'bout it all.

When my Big Mummy opened her eyes again, I told her it was cuz I was so happy to see her every day. Then she smiled at me and gave me a kiss.

I love my Big Mummy.

Me Teachin' 'Bout Charts

Hi, it's me, Klu the Sailor Bear.

'Member how I went on a bacation of a lifetime last summer on the David B? That's when I learned to be a Sailor Bear. You can read all 'bout that bacation in my posts from September 2006.

Since I'm a Sailor Bear, I did some teachin' to make sure Darla and Wilbs knew where we were goin'. Here's a picture of us on the David B, lookin' at the chart. Maps for boats are called charts. Huh. Huh. Everything's called by a different name on a boat. The kitchen is called the galley and the toilet is the head and left is port and right is starboard. Sometimes it was a little confusin' for Darla and Wilbs, but not for me, cuz I learned all that stuff when I was a Sailor Bear last year.

I was really 'cited cuz Darla stopped lookin' for a nest long enough to look at the chart and say 'mwack.' (Darla still only says 'mwack.' I can't wait till she can say my name, Klu.) Wilb'rina looked at the chart too, but then she got busy doin' some 'vestigatin'. There's lots of things to 'vestigate on a boat. I'll show you a picture of Wilb'rina doin' some 'vestigatin' in the next post. But we still don't have the internet at our house, so I don't know if I'll be able to write another post tomorrow. I heard my Big Mummy say another bad word today after she got off the phone with the man who is bringin' us our router. I think we're gettin' a kind of 'venturous router, cuz it went on a bacation instead of comin' to our house like it was supposed to. It started out in Denver a couple of weeks ago, and then it went all over the country. And some days it did some hidin' so the man couldn't find it. And now it's on its way back to Denver, but it might not be here till Monday. I think we're gonna like this router when it gets here, cuz it's so 'venturous.

Here's That Other Photo 'Bout The Shells In Uncle Kermit's Bathroom

Hi, it's me, Klu the Bear,

Here's that photo I couldn't 'pload the other day, cuz Big Mummy forgot the cord to make the pictures go from the camera to the 'puter. That's me in Uncle Kermit's bathroom, playin' with the shells we picked up. I like it that Uncle Kermit has some shells at his house now. He doesn't have very many toys to play with when we go over there. But I'm gonna start leavin' some of my toys for him to play with. Maybe I'll leave one of my Hot Wheels cars for him to play with. I think he'd like that.

Today is Monday, and we're supposed to have the internet at our house on Wednesday. I'm glad cuz I feel a little 'barrassed sittin' here in the coffee shop and writin' my blog. All the grownups are starin' at me again. I don't understand why grownups always have to stare at bloggin' bears.

Me and Some Shells -- I Like Shells

Hi, it's me again, Klu the Bear.

I wanted to write a post today about shells. I like shells a lot. When we were on the beach in 'Lympia, me and Uncle Kermit picked up lots of shells. I'm real good at pickin' up shells, so I helped Uncle Kermit choose which shells he should pick up. Here's a picture of me and some of our shells.

I wanted to show you a picture of Uncle Kermit's bathroom, where he put the shells, but I can't. I took the picture, but we forgot to bring the cord to plug the camera into Big Mummy's 'puter. So I'll 'pload that picture the next time I can use the internet. Why do grownups always put shells in bathrooms? I put my shells by my pillow so I could look at them in the morning when I wake up.

We're not gonna have internet at our house for a few more days, cuz the company made a mistake. I think my Big Mummy said a bad word when she found out. It's drivin' us crazy to have to go to the coffee shop to get our email. And I felt a little 'barrassed the other day to write my blog in public. But I didn't want to let my fans down.
