Puerto Vallarta

We spent a fabulous week in sunny Puerto Vallarta with good friends. This is a smorgasbord of pics from the trip. (I had a little difficulty uploading the pics with blogger's new program.)

Getting the directions for parasailing (also an offer to go to a club with "fina mexicanas".

Suzy and Mary enjoying the beach.

Good Friends on the Malecon.

This was one of our best trips ever.

Swim Meet Part Deux

Swim team is going swimmingly for Noah. His medley relay team is unbeatable and he is kicking butt in the fly 50M. He loves the freestyle relay and is getting faster and faster with each meet.

I had great lighting at this pool.

I'm always tickled by how tall Noah is compared to the other boys his age. I like'em tall.

Here he has lapped this kid.

We are having lots of fun cheering him on.

It is swim season again

Noah had his first meet this year and placed first in the 50m fly, 2nd in the medley relay and 3rd in the freestyle relay. Lots of pics for his fans.


More photoshop

Still from Jessica Sprague. This was a bonus lesson, changing a photo into b & w and inserting it into a page. This may be child's play to many of you, but I am a complete novice at photoshop.


I'm learning

to use my new Photoshop. I am taking an online course with Jessica SpragueThis is my first completed project.

Game Night

We spend a lot of time at the Holmes'. They used to spend a lot of time at our house playing games, but then they started procreating and we moved the party to their house. Our kids are now old enough to stay home alone, so we leave them every chance we can.

These days we watch mostly watch movies, but last night April decided to change things up a bit. We played a game!
Darren got busy making guacamole.
This disappeared quickly.
Then we played this game.

I won.

Daily Routines

Noah walks in the door from swim practice and goes right to the computer to check on his Farmville on Facebook. I think he might need an intervention.

Fed Ex stopped by today

and left this nifty little box on my door.
Last year I tried to order a Project 365 scrapbook, but it sold out before I could get it, so this year when I read that Becky Higgins had one in production, I jumped at the chance to get it.
I've been eagerly awaiting its arrival and had my first set of pictures developed and ready to go when it came today.
If you are ever at my house, ask to see it and I'll show you what I'm busy doing this year to record our comings and goings.

Ringing in the New Year

We rang in the New Year at the Holmes' playing rock band and eating way too much yummy food.

As my friend, Kirsti said, "There's no place like Holmes' for the holidays."
The Holmes are very generous with their toys and we jump at every opportunity to play a little music, especially the Beatles.
Noah is a huge Beatles fan and has finally completed his Beatles collection.
Too many late nights this week. Darren awoke to count down the final 10 seconds of 2009.
Bring it on 2010.
