Nolen Family Pictures

Here are some family pictures that I took for my friends, Andy & Diana Nolen, when I was visiting Ohio a few weeks ago.  Mostly, I'm posting these for them to take a peek at before I send them their CD, but maybe you'll enjoy them too.

I had to knock down the resolution of the images significantly so that I could upload them onto Blogger, so forgive the pixelization, if you please.

Super Fabulous Road Trip 2009

David & I got back from our road trip a week and a half ago.  (My internet has been giving me issues or I would've posted this sooner!)  Here are some pictures of our adventures!

This was our trip.  We drove from Provo to where David's parents live in Colona, Illinois & stayed there for a couple of days.  Then we drove to Columbus to see my family & stayed there for a few more days.  Finally, we drove to Washington, DC & did some sightseeing.  Then we backtracked & stopped to see each of our families one more night before heading back home.

Three Hour Shift

On Thursdays, I only work a three hour shift.  Sometimes it seems pointless, but my studio is only open for nine hours each day, so I can't work four ten hour shifts.  Instead, I work four nine hour shifts and a three hour shift.  Usually, this three hour shift is from 10-1 on Thursdays, which is nice because I then have the rest of the day to do whatever I need to.  Today, I am working a 4-7 shift.  Lame.  That pretty much sums it up.  It was a last minute change to the schedule.  The thing that is the most inconvenient is that David gets off of work at 5:30pm every day.  We've figured out a good routine with the car for the other days that I work until 7pm, but working a three hour shift that prevents me from letting him have the car or pick him up from work is just annoying.
