It looks like since we saw the property 3 days ago they’ve just about finished the cement work for the foundation. From what I can tell they’ll be coming in to remove the extra dirt and pour the driveway and garage floor next. After that I think they’ll start framing. We’ll go back next Saturday to see if I’m right.
Well, it’s been a few months, but we’re finally seeing some progress. During May we had appointments to meet with the builder to discuss structural options, and then we met with the design center to pick out all of our cosmetic options. Once we picked out everything we wanted the builder submitted the plans to the city for approval. About a week ago they finally got approval to start construction. I had a brief meeting with the project manager to […]
Last year while the girls were in Thailand for 4 months I was flipping through YouTube one night and I stumbled across a channel that specialized in golf course vlogs named Golfholics. The channel was started by two men, Marko and Mike, in the San Diego area and they recorded their rounds played at a club that Marko belongs to, along with other upscale private and public courses. What stood out to me was the quality of the videos. A […]
We had a trip planned to San Diego and one of the things we considered doing was taking Victoria to Disneyland. She’d been once before, but she was only 7 months old and wouldn’t remember any of it so we thought it would be a good time to go since she was old enough to remember it, and be tall enough for most of the rides. Up until we left to go to San Diego we weren’t sure if Disneyland […]
It’s been a while since I set up an impromptu studio to take some photos of Victoria. We bought some fabric to use as a backdrop and then she tried on some of her Halloween costumes and ballerina costume to take some photos. They came out pretty well despite my flashes giving me a hard time by not staying on or responding to the wireless trigger. Victoria enjoyed it and I’m sure we’ll try again soon!
The other day the girls wanted to take a drive up the hills so we headed north up towards McCall. It’s about a 100 mile drive that winds along the Payette River. Unfortunately, both girls fell asleep about 15 minutes into the drive, but it was still a nice drive. I stopped a couple of times to take some photos and at one point Rotchana woke up so she could have her picture taken. She promptly fell asleep once we […]
Victoria started Kindergarten today. It’s her first day of school ever, and she was super excited to go. She had a great time and said she loved school! Hopefully that will continue for at least the next 12 years.
I finally have a week off of work to relax and catch up on everything that I’ve had to put off for another day. Technically I did go into work for an hour today and will have to go in tomorrow morning for a meeting, but I do have the next 7 days scheduled off. Needless to say it’s a very welcome time off. As much as I enjoy photography you would think I’d be taking a lot of photos […]
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Time seems to be flying by very quickly lately. It feels like it was yesterday that we were up in Tahoe visiting my friend Tim and his family. Victoria is growing quickly and continues to amaze us with her development. She’s about 6 1/2 months old now and is already standing up trying to take her first steps. Gates, bumpers and other safety devices have taken over our home in the hope […]
My friend Tim and his family, minus one daughter, came down from Washington to spend a few days at South Lake Tahoe. His daughter Melissa is turning 21 soon and chose the vacation. They rented a small house not far from the lake and had another longtime friend and her family stay with them. Rotchana, Victoria and I came up on their last full day there to visit. South Lake Tahoe is only about 100 miles from home so it’s […]
