I finally have a rough draft of Matt and Sarah’s wedding album. The draft is packaged up into a cool little web application. Later, after I finish it and Matt and Sarah sign off, I’m going to upload the high resolution files to a book publisher who will produce a fine art coffee table book. I can’t wait to see the resulting product! I’ll be sure to take lot’s of pictures of the book when it arrives and post them on the site.

I posted the pictures that we took last weekend on the photo site. You can access them here. Hope you enjoy them!
The Tulip Festival is held each year in Skagit county WA. It’s about an hour and a half drive from our place in Sammamish. This year it runs through the end of April, so those of you that are local still have this weekend to visit before they are beheaded, which reminds me of a slightly embarrassing story. A few years ago, my mom was out here visiting and we decided to drive up to the tulip festival. We drove around the area for at least a half hour before we realized that all of the tulips were gone. They had all been beheaded and we were left staring at acres upon acres of green headless tulips We did manage to find a nursery that had a modest garden full of tulips so that we could fire off a few pictures and not return completely empty handed, but it will still be many years before I live that trip down.
The IE (Internet Explorer) team at Microsoft issued an ‘Active Content Update’ for the browser which broke my Flash based slideshow software. Sorry for the inconvenience, but the issue should now be fixed.
What a pain!
Up until this evening I kept a blog separate from the website and in the end I did a poor job updating either one. As a result, I decided to combine the blog and the website together. I don’t know why I didn’t think of doing this earlier, but it should make it much easier for me to post updates and keep you all informed about what we’re up to.
Let me know if you have any feedback (as long as it’s positive
I woke the family up at 5:30AM on Sunday to travel north to Mt. Vernon to see the tulip festival. I wanted to take some pictures before the crowds got there and the sun was too high in the sky (makes for poor landscape photographs). I’m still editing them, but here’s a panorama shot to tide you over. I’ll place the rest of them online as soon as possible.
Nathan had his T-ball pictures this morning before practice. I figured that it was a sure bet that it would be pouring rain as a result and was pleasantly surprised by blue skies and wamring temps this morning.
I took the camera along to practice this morning and posted some new pictures. Click here to take a look After practice, I took the kids to Krispy Kreme and Erin and I are going to spend the remainder of the day organizing the garage; I know you are all envying me
Enjoy the weekend!
Kate flew up from San Francisco to for the holiday weekend. We had a great visit, although Cole wouldn’t warm up to Kate Just before the egg hunt on Sunday, I happened to look outside and I saw a squirrel holding one of the eggs and biting through the plastic to get to the chocolate inside. I managed to snap a few shots before he ran off with the evidence. check ‘em out! Hope you are all doing well!
