Buffalo Trip & Lisbeth’s Canadian Wedding

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009 · 3 Comments

A couple weeks ago Jen and I made a run for the border, Canadian style. Lisbeth was getting married in Niagara on the Lake in Ontario, not far from Buffalo, so it also gave us a good excuse to visit Johnny; we crashed with him both Friday upon arrival and Saturday after the wedding, so […]

CA Trip: Marathon Edition Part II

Sunday, December 21st, 2008 · No Comments

There’s no place like home. Much like mine and Jen’s last trip to California in June, our last trip a couple weeks ago (my third to CA this year) was inspired by the marathon, but was, as always, tons of fun beyond the race itself, thanks, of course, to our awesome family, great friends, and […]

Portland Trip / Katie’s Wedding

Friday, September 19th, 2008 · 2 Comments

 Jen and I have now been to Portland, Oregon twice — both over Labor Day weekends. The first trip was Labor Day weekend 2001 when we were living in San Francisco. And the second trip was earlier this month when we went for our friend Katie’s wedding. We’ve loved it both times. Portland is such […]

NYC & Avenue Q

Sunday, June 22nd, 2008 · No Comments

Last weekend Jen and I cruised down to Manhattan and had such a fun time that we questioned why we don’t go more often. From Saratoga Springs, it took us only 2.5 hours to the “Welcome to Manhattan” sign just past the George Washington Bridge, and only about 3 hours total to get to the […]

CA Trip: Marathon Edition

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Damn, has it really been 17 days since my marathon and 13 days since I posted the entry about it? Time flies. And I’ve been riding the marathon high ever since. View more San Diego photos above or on Flickr So the part of the story I haven’t told is how awesome the entire marathon […]

San Francisco / Sacramento 2008

Friday, February 15th, 2008 · No Comments

Last week following a work trip to Atlanta for a conference Sunday through Tuesday, I hopped on a flight to my home away from home: San Francisco. I love that city and every time I go, it’s like I never left. I was there Tuesday and Wednesday nights, cruised to Sacramento Wednesday and Thursday nights, […]

CA Trip: Dad’s Birthday & Family Reunion

Thursday, November 8th, 2007 · 3 Comments

I’ve come to an important realization: I’m a morning blogger. The earlier I wake up, the more likely I am to blog. If I don’t wake up early enough, I always have good intentions to blog at the end of the day after work, but by then, my eyes are usually pretty sore after being […]

European Travel BBQ

Friday, July 20th, 2007 · No Comments

Wednesday night we had Sarah and Eric over for a fajita BBQ dinner — delicious grilled chicken and portobello with all kinds of goodies like peppers, guacamole, sour cream, and hot sauce. Sarah and Eric were just back from their two-week European vacation to France and Italy, so we wanted to hear all about it […]

Buffalo Trip 2006

Monday, January 15th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Until I saw him live last month, Garrison Keillor’s voice always bugged me, especially on the Writer’s Almanac. I also didn’t expect to enjoy A Prairie Home Companion as much as I did. But it was really, really funny, and a wonderful, localized experience. We went for the weekend both to see the show and […]

Jen in DC / Gabe’s Party Week

Wednesday, December 6th, 2006 · 1 Comment

A few weeks ago (November 15 through the 18th, to be precise — I’m quite the timely blogger these days, aren’t I?) Jen went to Virginia and DC for a work-related photo shoot. There’s a rumor that she even showed some skin as a model for one of the shoots, so for the first time […]
