A Windy Day with Granny and Gramps

Play Windy Day VideoWe went to visit Granny and Gramps last weekend. It was a very windy day, as the video will show. We took a short hike, played croquet and, of course on a windy day, we flew kites. The video was taken with our new Canon HV20 high-definition camcorder so the pictures are nice and crisp. View it full screen for more detail.

Happy New Year 2008!

Blaine and Felicia on New Years Eve 2008Photos from New Year's Eve
While the kids were with grandparents and other family, Felicia and I got to be grown-ups and have an evening out.

It was a great celebration at the Claremont Hotel with jazz, salsa, swing, etc. There was a dinner show with music from the decades, dance lessons, a comedy club and a casino. All in all a fun way to ring in the New Year!
