Snapshot #1133: Home For Christmas

December 25, 2014.  Camas, Washington.  Somehow I talked my family into coming to Camas and spending Christmas with us in our new house.  Their presence was a true gift!  I fear I would have been utterly lost in a new town in a new house without family or friends to make it feel like home.

Snapshot #1131: Travel for Work

December 11, 2014.  Menlo Park, California.  Not Dave's work, but my own.  I started a new project last month for a colleague from the Bay Area.  This week Hazel and I flew back to The Bay to do some field measurements of the new corporate office and shop for furniture.  Looks like we brought the rain with us.

Snapshot #1128: Hazel's First Dental Appointment

December 1, 2014.  Vancouver, Washington.  I give YouTube all the credit for the smile and this little girl's face.  We watched several YouTube videos of the first time at a Dentist's and got her all prepped and ready.  The preparation REALLY paid off...she was extraordinarily cooperative and she loved it!

Snapshot #1127: The Road Home

November 30, 2014.  Somewhere, Oregon.  We decided it was worth the drive to Idaho to see Family for Thanksgiving this year.  Now that we're in the Portland area "Home" just feels so much closer.
