This year we kept it small. I worked during the food preparation period so I’m stealing some photos from Jon. We prepared pulled pork & deep fried turkey with sides. Desert was grilled pineapple and croissant bread pudding topped with whiskey sauce. Everyone chipped in with appetizers and Cait tossed a nice spinach salad. After […]

One of my all time favorite shots of Sandy is, “The Gate”. While we were back in the Philippines we tried our best to recreate it. Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

I finally got some time to work on Rick & Jennifer’s Wedding photos. The Wedding & Ceremony were held at Holman Ranch, a lovely venue. The Wii theme throughout was incredibly cute. It ended all too quickly. See the rest of the photos Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

It was one of those rare occasions when I get together with my coworkers. There are only 3 of us in Northern California. We grilled an assortment of good eats – country style boneless pork ribs, salmon with curry sauce and mixed veggies. We filled our guts and had some stimulating conversation. Oh, Taylor was […]

Last night we were part of a heartwarming event, the Yuen Wedding. The ceremony was held at the Japanese Tea Garden in San Mateo. Tami was a gorgeous bride. Unfortunately lighting conditions were horrible and therefore I didn’t get much in the way of pictures. The reception was a few miles away at the Hillsborough […]

Contrary to what my Sister IL believes, I make note of when Sandy’s photos are used not because I want to separate myself from her point and shoot camera, but to show that you don’t need a big monster camera to take good pictures. Now that we’re home and I’m looking through Sandy’s shots I […]

I’d like to take this time to thank our family and friends for making this vacation so wonderful, […]
