Do you all know about Google Reader? Love it. I have a ton of blogs I like to read (friends & family personal ones along with scrapbook and stamping ones), but hate having to bookmark them all and then go to them one by one . . . but Google Reader saved the day! It does all the work for you. You simply enter in the URL of the blogs you like to keep up with and add a widget to your Google home page and it lets you know when there's new entries. Awesome. If you have any questions on how to use it, let me know and I'll help you figure it out.
Did you know that I linked our European trip weblog over to the left? I've had a few of you ask about pictures from our trip and a condensed version is available for you to check out. The best part is that you can look at them on your own time. If you want to just look at one or two pictures, that's okay too - we won't ask if you actually looked through them all! Cool, huh? Another bonus - Mike and I sorted through our 1800+ pictures and posted just the highlights, complete with captions!
And since I'm still fairly new to the blogging world and think it's fun to add pictures, here's a few more for you all! Today's posted pictures were taken on our trip up to my family's get-together this last June. The first one is of the road in front of my house. It was the road that I walked every day (uphill both ways, knee deep in snow, blah blah) to catch the bus. I still have occasional dreams (nightmares) of walking out the driveway and seeing the bus coming up over the hill knowing I'm going to have run the entire way to the corner! Good times, eh Craig & Chris? The second picture is of Isaac and Connor. They are in front of an old train car that was along side a road I passed almost every day of my life growing up (corner of Rose & Groveland Road, btw family). A lot of the farmers would buy them and use them as cheap storage sheds. On our way out of town we stopped and got a few pictures of them - I love how they turned out!
