We’re back from our vacation trip to Galveston, Texas. I’m working on formatting and uploading photos, and working up my usual trip-summary blog entry.

2014.12.22-24: Xmas Trip (UPDATED)

For a slightly early Christmas, we went to Oklahoma to see my family, and had a wonderful trip — both the visiting and the actual traveling. Plans sprouted up for this trip during our Nov. 11 visit to my brother’s house, when my mother asked about Thanksgiving plans. Not everyone could come for Thanksgiving, but[…]

Even before she’d returned from New York, my wife was thinking of a trip to the beach here in Texas. So we went, just two days after she and the kids got home. That’ll explain the break in my blogging. Rest assured, I’m working on an entry about our trip (July 26-28) to Corpus Christi,[…]

2014.06.19-23: New England Baptism Trip

Just a quick post to let everyone know we arrived safely home yesterday (2014.06.23) at about 17:20 local time. All the normal getting-home stuff happened (laundry, eating, showering, kids crying, Daddy dumping photos from memory cards onto computer, etc.) I’m working through the images from our trip right now, but I anticipate that it (and[…]
