Trip to Taiwan

Some of my friends said I should post pictures & updates while on my trip. I'll post today's update here, but I don't want to take up too much space on the blog. For those interested, here's a link to our family blog where I'll put daily posts (or try to, anyway. :-) Hopefully I'll have some fun pictures tomorrow.

Day 1: LONG plane ride -- watched 4 movies, read 1 book, and
pseudo-slept for several hours.

Most memorable moment: getting rice porridge with shrimp & tuna on top and a green egg for breakfast on the plane. I do regret not taking a picture for my squeamish daughter to see though.

Biggest adventure: The ride to the hotel -- I have to say our driver seemed quite cautious compared to most people on the road; we only had 2-3 near misses. People seem to view the lines between the lanes as mere guidelines, if that. There were often 5 cars across on a 4-lane road. They just weave around wherever there's the *tiniest* space, as if they were walking through a crowd instead of barreling down the road at incredible speeds!

Thankfully we survived the journey intact and made it safely to our hotel, where we promptly fell into a nice, firm bed. Or was it a concrete slab with a sheet over the top? Not sure, but we were so tired it didn't really matter ... until morning when everything hurt. First item of business today: find something a little softer for our weary old bones.

Nate's Baptism

I never posted pictures from Nathan's baptism on the blog. I was going to do that now since I actually have some free time with little else to do. (I said I would help with setup for the tradeshow today, but most of the work I can help with is done now. I might leave and go shopping but enjoying some free time to play on the computer.) Anyway, I posted 30 pictures on my facebook page and decided I don't want to put 30 pictures up on here. Here's a few from the actual baptism itself. Otherwise, you can see all the pictures from the weekend on my facebook album.!/album.php?aid=2044174&id=1026468782

So Rod took some great pics at my sister's wedding, but what he didn't tell you was he was also awesome in a thrown-together quartet him and my other bro-in-laws did at the dinner the night before the wedding. They practiced together for about an hour before doing this- they were a hit! They introduced themselves as "Sons of Georgia". For some reason my sister's having trouble emailing me the video, so here's the link to the blog that it's on:

Check it out!

Great Website for FREE Pics

Hi everyone! I am so super excited about this website my coworker showed me. You can order one FREE photo book per month. We're talking 100% don't even have to pay for shipping!! Wednesday night I made my first book and its already been processed and shipped. I'm hoping to get it tomorrow.

Check it out..

They offer the books for free because the advertisers pay for it. In the middle of the book is one removeable page of ads. (You can choose to order without the ads for $3.99) I was surprised how many options were available...lots of page layout designs, background choices, colors, etc.

Sweet Update

Hi everyone! Firstly, I'd like to congratulate Jordan on getting his first tooth!!! Jordan cut his bottom right tooth on May little man is growing up! Lynnea wanted to see it so bad all day she kept trying to force his mouth open to see - you can imagine how much Jordan liked that.

Here's some pics of the family from last week at the zoo.

This spring we have a baby bunny that visits our backyard and Lynnea wants to catch him so badly. We put out celery for him and wait. Her plan is to catch him and make him pretty like a girl...meaning she wants to put bows in his hair. Saturday morning, she even wanted me to put her hair up pretty so she could show him when he came. Too funny!!! I'll let ya'll know if she catches it !
