What We've Been Up To
Mon, Nov 2, 2009 - Huge thanks to Mom & Dad and Joe & Jessica who put together a great baby shower for us on Sunday. Instead of keeping it a girls-only event, we made it a party for everyone. It was great to hang out with friends and family to celebrate our baby girl. Thanks to all of you who came, and for the gifts.
Thu, Oct 1, 2009 - Highlights from our recent trip to Switzerland, France, and Italy. Check out the photos for more about seeing Annecy and Mont Blanc in France, camping in Cinque Terre along the Italian coast, soaking in Florence, our last-minute trip to Rome, and relaxing at Lake Como.
Sat, Aug 1, 2009 - After Joe's wedding, the rest of the family headed up to Twin Lakes outside Bridgeport for some camping, hiking, and mountain climbing. Andy had picked out the impressive-looking Matterhorn Peak that Andy and I were going to climb (2-day climb). Mom, Dad, and Katie joined us for the first part of the trip (day hike).
Before parting ways, Andy asked Katie if she wanted to join us for the climb, and since she was feeling better than expected (despite being pregnant), she decided to join us. That made the adventure even better since we had 3 people but only 2 ice axes, 2 crampons, 2 sleeping bags, and a 2-man tent. The wooden ice axe that my dad carved for Andy worked fine for him, and he survived the night without a sleeping bag...
Oh, and I just have to mention that my SLR camera mysteriously stopped working as soon as we got to a certain altitude, which was by far the biggest bummer of the whole trip. Thanks to Dad for letting me borrow his point n shoot, which is what most these photos were taken with.
Wed, Jul 8, 2009 - Thanks to Lem for taking most of these portraits of Joe & Jessica.
Tue, Jul 7, 2009 - I just posted a bunch more photos from Joe & Jessica's wedding, including the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and reception
Mon, Jun 29, 2009 - Great times at port San Luis beach in Avila hanging out with Joe for his bachelor party. After enjoying tri-tip sandwiches, a short swim, and a bonfire, we headed to Sycamore hot springs for the rest of the evening.
Sun, May 24, 2009 - Congratulations to Jessica for graduating with honors and a nursing degree from Biola University. Thursday night was the pinning ceremony, and Saturday was graduation followed by a BBQ in the park to celebrate. A video of her pinning ceremony is embedded below the photos.
Sun, May 17, 2009 - Katie and I both turned 30 this month. We didn't have any big parties, but we did have some great times with both sides of the families to celebrate.
Mon, Apr 20, 2009 - I realized that not everyone who comes to our site knows that I've been posting a number of photos from my recent trip to Indonesia on FOCUS, my photo blog. Just thought I'd let you know in case you're interested in checking them out, since I haven't posted much here from the trip.
Sun, Mar 22, 2009 - I had a quick visit with my parents for a couple days en route to a different location within the country where I'm setting up some IT stuff. It was great to see them, and hike up Lokon volcano, and visit Bunaken for a little scuba diving. Also, be sure to check out the video I shot of Lokon volcano.
Mon, Jan 26, 2009 - A couple weekends ago I went to Vegas for the weekend with Josh & Rob to attend CES (the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow). It was a fun time hanging out and seeing lots of cool technology.
Mon, Dec 29, 2008 - We enjoyed 2 recent visits to San Diego, for Thanksgiving and an early Christmas. Here are some photos from our time together, though I didn't get photos of everyone this time, unfortunately.
Mon, Dec 29, 2008 - We enjoyed hanging out with Dan & Christa Issler, and our cute god-daughter Kate. After giving Kate some presents at our house, we went to the zoo together.
Mon, Dec 29, 2008 - We celebrated Christmas with the Nystrom clan in Corona. As always, it was great to be with that side of the family. Then Joe, Jessica, Andy, and I went up to Big Bear for some cross-country skiing for 2 days. It was great fun to be in the snow, and learn a bit more cross-country skiing from Andy. We managed to lose one snow chain, and break the second, so we had to buy new chains while we were up there.
Tue, Dec 2, 2008 - Highlights from my recent 2-week photojournalism trip to India. I tried to pick out a sampling of some of my favorite shots to share. Enjoy!
Thu, Nov 27, 2008 - Photos from the baptism Nov 2 at Blessed Sacrament Church. I left for India the day after I took these photos, so I didn't a chance to post them until today.
Nearby Fires Are Not Threatening Us...
Sat, Nov 15, 2008 - For family who is far away, you may hear about the fires that have been burning in Santa Barbara and Orange Counties. There is a fire in Brea area, which is the town right next to ours, east of the 57 Freeway (which is about 5 miles from our house). So I think a lot of the area along Brea Cyn Rd, where I bike, are burning. However, it sounds like when the fire jumped to the west side of the 57, firemen were able to put it out.
We are not very concerned at this point, as the fire would still have to travel several miles, and through city blocks (not brush) to reach us. But do please keep praying, as many people have lost their homes. Please pray especially for some of our relatives who live in Corona (where there is another fire), several families in our church, and Daniel's boss, who all live near fire areas. Here are some photos of the damage to a neighborhood and high school east of the 57 freeway, about 5 miles from our house.
Mon, Nov 3, 2008 - Daniel will try to update the travel blog as much as possible while on his trip to India.
Sun, Nov 2, 2008 - Katie and I enjoyed a fun time at the Nick's Halloween party, just like we did last year. Katie was a ghost, and I was a ghost chaser, which is a photographer that tries to photograph ghosts. Ironically, I didn't really take that many photos at the party. I guess because there weren't really any ghosts besides Katie. But we did have lots of dry ice again.
Wed, Oct 29, 2008 - I've posted another set of photo highlights from our trip to Israel & Jordan. This doesn't cover everything of course; but it gives you a taste of some of the cool stuff we saw and experienced.
Mon, Oct 27, 2008 - A big congratulations to Oli & Nem who got married Saturday October 25. Here are my photos from the celebration.
Mon, Sep 22, 2008 - Yay, Joe & Jessica got engaged! And there was much rejoicing. I'll let them tell the engagement story, but I wanted to at least post some photos of them and the ring taken Saturday evening after the event.
Mon, Sep 15, 2008 - I took photos of Micah Snell's ordination to the diaconate at Blessed Sacrament Episcopal Church on September 6, 2008.
