Our Trip to Washington

We just got back from an extended trip out to Seattle and Bellingham, to visit my mom and my sister, respectively. Sister (Julie) and her hubbie Mike just had their first baby, Madeline.

Here’s everyone gettin’ all up in Maddie’s business:

There was a lotta getting back to nature:

Lastly, here’s Mom pushing 2 generations of her boys. And Finn with Mom’s new pooch.

Another Haul of Records…

June 24, 2013

Looking at my blog posts from the last couple weeks, one might conclude I have a bit of a problem…

Sam invited me to join him at a great little record show in Michigan. Of which there are many, apparently. Uh oh.

Listening to “Fear of Music” right now. Brilliant.

And we did a Catbot for Auntie Julie’s baby shower, and just got one for Cormac. Not so sure Ozzie approves…

Wow: New Sigur Rós

Collages from This Weekend
