Another photo tour

A fun time was had this past weekend, with CJ's cousins having a joint half-birthday party and then a reunion of the group we traveled with in China.

But first I need to catch up on a few older photos. Here's CJ on Memorial Day Weekend, trying to keep cool. I'm too busy with the camera to point out she needs ice in that cooler for it to work:

Here's CJ back in Aunt Susan and Uncle Frank's pool, test-driving a hot new water toy:

For Father's Day we had Nai Nai (Grandma) and Ye Ye (Grandpa) over for brunch. CJ decided to have a conference call:

And lastly, here's CJ at the half-birthday, all sippy-cupped and ready to party:

I'll have the travel group photos up shortly. Please enjoy these in the interim.

Photo Tour

I'm finally getting around to posting some photos in my "new" office (my company while I was on leave in April) and I thought I should post some of the photos that I will be hanging on my walls. There's no self-copyright infringement as far as I can tell.

This first photo is of Shangrao, the city where CJ was born. This is the Rao River, which flows through Shangrao. And yes, the air pollution is that bad (in fact it's worse--I photoshopped this image).

Next we have a nice reflection of new leaves on Van Cortlandt Lake, in the Bronx. Much prettier. CJ was with me when I took this photo in April (and how dare I not include her in the shot somehow!).

When we were in Utah, we caught the sunrise at Bryce National park. Highly recommended. The morning light hitting the hoodoos is not to be missed.

We visited a few slot canyons in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Here, Meg and CJ are playing peekaboo in Spooky Gulch (we checked out Peekaboo Gulch as well).

Also in the Grand Staircase, we saw a neat rainbow-halo surrounding the sun, through Grosvenor Arch. The picture says it all.

On the way home from Utah, we stopped in Milwaukee for a great visit with Aunt Sara and her parents. CJ always gets so inspired to walk around her...

More photos from vacation

Here's a few shots of us in Bryce National Park, and one of CJ after a day of hiking and playing in Zion National Park.

I'll post a few more soon--I'm halfway done sorting through our photos!

CJ's first time in the pool!

Memorial Day, CJ took her first swim in Aunt Susan and Uncle Frank's swimming pool. She had a pretty good time, and apparently doesn't mind when the water is, um, refreshing...

(the videos might take a little extra time to load; please be patient)
