When Friends Drop By

Sunday, August 24th, 2008

Shelby was in town on business last week so we were able to get together for drinks and dessert down in Hollywood. While we were looking out over the city, Shelby took the photo below with her iPhone, lit with the LED “flash” from Megs’ camera phone:

I look kinda creepy…

Trip Pics Posted

Sunday, August 17th, 2008

I just finished posting the selected combined pictures of the trip taken by Megs and myself up at the usual place. I broke them into two albums, Bass Lake and Yosemite. Any pictures taken by mom, grandpa or Kim will not be included in these, unless they send them to me to add.

Back Home from the Lake

Saturday, August 16th, 2008

We’re home safe from our trip. Pretty tired, so no big write-up quite yet. I’ve got the pictures on my computer, but it’ll take a while to caption and sort all 200+ of them, so I’ll upload them later. I’ll link ’em when they’re up.

We had a wonderful time, but it’s good to be home.

Lasy Afternoon

Wednesday, August 13th, 2008

Yesterday was an adventurous day of water skiing and drinking a lake through my nose. Only one of those things did I attempt on purpose, however that wasn’t the one I succeeded at. At any rate, I had fun driving the boat and I took lots of pictures. I don’t have a way to get the pictures uploaded right now, but I’ve got some real good ones of our attempts. We even got Grandpa on the inner tube thing and dragged him around for a while. Good times.

Today is pretty lazy. We’re mostly hanging around the house and recovering from sunburns and sore muscles. This afternoon/evening we’re gonna go get Kim from Fresno to join in our trip, but that’s about all we’ve got planned so far. I think tomorrow we’re going to head up to Yosemite valley to see the sights and do some hiking or something. I’ll take more pictures there.

Bloggin’ on a Log

I’m currently sitting on a fallen tree with my feet in a warm lake. There are some geese hanging about, and mom and Megs are taking pictures. Now this is a relaxing vacation!

Going Away

Wednesday, August 6th, 2008

Pretty sure I mentioned this briefly a little while ago, but next week I’m gonna be off on summer vacation up at Bass Lake, which is near Yosemite National Park. Going up with Megs, Matt, Mom, and Grandpa Gallagher. Kim’s supposed to be joining us later, too. Should be a nice relaxing time away from it all with little to do except learn to water ski.
