Patti and Todd Say “I Do”

A week ago, I posted Todd and Patti’s wedding invitation {photo #860} since I hadn’t yet finished going through photos from their fun wedding…and while I still haven’t finished, I have gotten through quite a lot!  The above photo was taken in the middle of the ceremony as Todd was starting to say his vows to Patti.  Overall, I would say they both got through the vows just fine!

Karma Takes a Seat

This is Karma.  Karma was one of our fun canine companions while staying in a cabin along the Wheaton River in the Yukon (another, Tatra {photo #66}, is in the background).  One day, while relaxing along the icy river after a day of fieldwork, the dogs found us and enjoyed as we played with them.  Ken had been seated in a nice chair that was a surrounded by snow, when Karma came up and took a seat in the snow right next to him!  It definitely looked awkward, but Karma seemed quite content sitting there on the cold snow…

Salt Lake City from Above

I always enjoy taking in the sights while taking off or landing in a plane, and my short trip to Salt Lake City a few years ago was no exception.  This photo was taken as I was leaving the city after a few days of attending a conference for graduate school, and it was cool to see the city from afar and set against the surrounding mountains after having been able to walk around the city a bit.  I would have liked to explore more of Salt Lake City, but I enjoyed the time I was able to spend there.

Actually, I’m not quite sure what sound was coming out of Madison’s mouth when this photo was taken.  But in my mind, I’m imagining it was something like an extended roar/scream…RAAWWWRRRRR!!

Pomegranate Tree

Pomegranates are probably not one of the typical fruits you see in a tree here on the eastern coast of the US, so it was pretty cool to see a bunch while visiting Colonial Williamsburg down in Virginia.  They had a pretty cool garden there with a variety of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers that would have been part of a fancy garden during colonial times, and these pomegranates were on a few small trees in the garden.  They are more usually found in parts of Asia and the southern Mediterranean (as well as California), but I guess they can do okay in Virginia as well.

Those little pomegranate seeds (called arils) sure are tasty!

Wine Tanks at Unionville Vineyards

Back in early February, Heather and I took a lovely drive down through Hunterdon County in New Jersey and found our way to the Unionville Vineyards in the town of Ringoes.  It was a nice little winery with some good tasting wines (we sampled a bunch out of the 20 or so wines they offer), and while we were there, we enjoyed a little tour of the winery.  This photo shows the large area that holds a bunch of the wine storage tanks.  It was a good way to spend a February afternoon!

Mmm, Gorilla Bread

Now this here was some delicious gorilla bread.  Full of cream cheese, cinnamon, and biscuity-goodness, these clumps of gorilla bread were made by Heather this past Christmas morning and were a great way to start off the day.  You cannot go wrong with a bit of gorilla bread!
