New Grill

Oh yea! Take a look at that baby. That's our new grill. Isn't it a beauty? It's an Aussie Grill. It cooked up some mean hamburgers for us last night. We plan on using it a lot.

Books I've read

I think I need to do a page like my about me page where I can keep a list of all the books I've read. We do a lot of reading at our house and it would be nice to keep a running tally of those books. Our children get read to just about every night and during school they can earn an award if they read enough books.

Water Slide

This was the water slide on the cruise ship we went on. They had a minimum height requirement so our boy couldn't go down the slide. Talk about heart breaking. He waited and waited to go down that slide only to be turned away at the top. Pretty lame. He ended up having fun in the pools though.

Prints from Adorama

I ordered myself an 8x12 print of the my Beach photo from Adorama. They have a print wizard that you can download to your PC and use to order prints from your digital pictures. I've tried them out in the past and was very happy with the print that I got back from them. They print on Kodak paper. I'd recommend you give them a try if you want to get prints from your digital images without leaving your house.

I made some lager versions of this photo that can be used as desktop wallpaper. Depending on your desktop resolution I have a few files. After you click on the file size you need just right-click on the picture and then select set as background. Enjoy!

I took this photograph while on our trip to Nassau. This was taken at the Blue Lagoon. I don't know if it was the same island where they filmed the movie or not. Some of the pictures that I got from this beach really look like a movie set to me.

3 Questions

I found this over on Tine's blah blah blog. I posed three questions over there so it's only fair that I place this on my blog as well.

I want everyone who reads this to ask me 3 questions, no more no less.
Ask me anything you want and I will answer it.
Then, I want you to go to your journal, copy and paste this allowing your friends (including myself) to ask you anything.

Weekends are short

We didn't get to the movies over the weekend like I had wanted. The weekends are just too short. We were busy doing other things. We did some planning and pricing on putting in a patio in our back yard. At first we thought about having a concrete patio poured. We got a price quote and it didn't seem all that unreasonable at first. But, after thinking about it for a few days we've decided that we'd be better off doing the work ourselves. and instead of doing the decorative concrete we're going to do some brick pavers.

We went to a local hardware store that has a computer kiosk with a touch screen that you can design your patio. You would think that would be the easy part. They have multiple kiosks. The first one we used had some issues with its touch screen. It kept pricing all the different variations at the same price. So we switched to another kiosk and found that it suffered from the same touch screen disorder but it's pricing was much better. We're going to the library this Wednesday and I plan on getting some books on installing a patio so we can get the ball rolling. There's been a Memorial Day deadline set on this do-it-yourself project of ours.
