Twitter for Blogger

Added Twitter Updates to sidepanel on the right. Want to do the same, go to twitter.com/badges/blogger for details. What is Twitter? Basically, Twitter is quick way to communicate with others by answering (in 140 charaters or less) one simple question: What are you doing?

I didn't join Twitter until I got a smartphone. Since then I've been posting "tweets" via TwitterBerry from my Blackberry. Great way to pass the time and stay connected with others.

Here's a video of Natalie and I testing out the video camera of the Blackberry Bold (9000):

As you can see at the end of the video safety googles* should of been used.

* No children were hurt during the filming of this video.

Just Wanna Have Fun

It's been several months since my last post. I guess I'm just not the "blogger" type.

Speaking of blogging, have you checked Natalie's blog lately?

Good Times

For some odd reason Natalie just loves to get into things. She loves to hang out in our pantry, closets, just about anything she can squeeze into (like the green organizer box below). She has even attempted to climb into the fridge.

Natalie just loves her pink car. Actually, she loves to be pulled around in it. Sometimes she will get out and watch (makes) Daddy pull the empty car around.

Below is an image of Natalie sitting on a stump near her great-grandparent's cabin. This was the first time she got to visit the cabin. She had a great time! Near by is a lake full with geese and a park will slides and swings.

We had a great Labor Day weekend, hope you did too!

Seven Days in Cambria

Here are a few images from Cambria, Ca. I decided not to bring my camera, our vehicle was full almost bursting at the seams. My wife had packed her little pink point-n-shoot camera though and we captured these precious moments:

In this photo, Natalie and I are taking a little break from shopping. Notice that Natalie is in full vacation mode - relaxed with sunglasses on.

Natalie is enjoying the sand, surf, & sun. This is the William Randolph Hearst Memorial State Beach located just west of Hearst Castle.

This photo of us was taken by Alison, Natalie's Nana. This day was very windy but this particular beach is sheltered (see behind us) which made it a very enjoyable day at the beach.

This sunset had a bit more red/orange color to it due to the fires up north. In both images you can see smoke in the sky. Over the next couple of days, ash from the fires accumulated on our car.

Both sunset images were taken along the Moonstone Beach Dr.

Here we are taking a tour of Hearst Castle. The views from here are amazing, just wished I would of brought my camera with me. I could of carried it in the backback I was wearing, Natalie lasted about 30 minutes in it.

My wife took this photo of our feet in the sand. Isn't she very creative?!

Natalie is very much enjoying the beach.

Family photo of us. Behind us is a castle with a moat. This castle was built for Natalie. Even though she loved the beach and enjoyed the waves from afar she was not too fond of the cold ocean water. The castle with moat kept her dry.

Backyard Fun

Sara is teaching Natalie how to smell the flowers.

As you can see Natalie has almost got the technique down.

Mother's Day gift for my wife

My wife received a camera for Mother's day. Here are a couple shots of her in action with her new pink Canon PowerShot SD 1100 IS.

Above image Natalie is probably thinking why do they need two cameras!

Striking a pose for her Momma!

My wife's pink camera in action, upclose you can see the "face recognition" technology in full effect! The camera also does movies as well, see post below.

Stellina (Little Star)

Here's a short video of Natalie playing the piano. She's been practicing for a couple of weeks now.

Can you name that tune?

Not sure what to do with her birthday cake.
