Two little monkeys



Beach in July 2012

HA! Last November I felt like the blog had been neglected (sounds familiar…), so I uploaded a bunch of photos and left posts in draft mode until I could do something with them. So, yeah, this beach trip is almost a year old. But better late than never? Scroll down to November 2012 if you want to see some other posts that weren’t really posted till today.

Posted by Picasa

WordPress or Blogger?

I’ve been considering making the switch to WordPress for this blog (which to the casual reader would just mean that when they visited they’d be redirected to, mostly because I use WordPress for work already, and I like the author interface better.  If it lets me post easily from my phone, I’ll be 99% sold.  The one big feature I’ll miss from Blogger is being able to post photos directly from Picasa when I’m using a real camera and a real computer…. but when do I ever have time to do either of those anymore?

Okay so photos… That’s the real test.  How easy is iOS to WordPress?


… Well, that worked.  Probably at least as easy as posting to Facebook from my phone.

So, I had already imported all of the Blogspot blog (all 229 posts!) to this site, and for whatever reason, all the images came over smaller than I would have liked.  You can click them to see a larger version, but I’d love to have them appear larger by default.  I guess I can work on that.  In my spare time.  😉

Happy Birthday, Amelia!

It’s been a long time. Sorry about that. Life happens, ya know? I logged in and noticed that my last post was Halloween. A lot of life has happened. Okay, maybe not as monumentally as the last time I took a hiatus from posting between October and May two years ago, but still many many photos and stories that I wish I’d had the time to catalog here for you. Hopefully this summer I can go back and fill in some of those gaps, with backdated entries. In the meantime though, here are a couple photos from Amelia’s birthday last night. We have one more weekend of birthdaymonth (a fourth May birthday, a Chuck-E-Cheese party for 2, and three other birthday party invitations for friends — all in 3 days), then the last week of school, moving offices at work for me, and then… SUMMER!

Let’s see if I can get a video to upload. I only captured a snippet of Jacob singing Happy Birthday like I was hoping to (why do they always quit performing when the camera comes out?), but I thought the rest was pretty funny too:
