With the death of Google Reader and the uncertainty of where I really want to be hosting my photos, I haven’t been posting lately.  Rest assured, we’re still here and doing fine.

Here’s some not-at-all-catastrophic storm damage pictures from last night’s hail storm.  I got caught driving in it.  Our house got caught standing in it.  At least the power is back on now.  We went over 12 hours without it.  Does anybody want to help us drink some ice cream?


Caribbean Vacation

Earlier this month, Marie and I went on a vacation with our friends, Matt and Janice.  We spent some time in Florida in addition to going on a Caribbean cruise.  We had a great time.  We left shortly after a large amount of snow fell in Minnesota.  This made the warm, sandy beaches that much more enjoyable.

I am experimenting with hosting our photos on Google.  I hope this works out.

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens was one of our first stops.


Our next activity was this awesome speedboat tour of Miami.

Our cruise ship left Miami on Dec 10th.

Here are pictures from our cruise ship, the Carnival Destiny.

On 12/12/12 we made it to Grand Turk. We went snorkeling from a catamaran sailboat.

Half Moon Cay had an amazing beach. The sandy bottom went on forever.

In Nassau we decided the term, “Christmas Jollification” was underutilized back home.


Our last stop was the Everglades. That’s Matt holding “Little Snappy.”
