After much time, we have decided to get back on the blog wagon. In all fairness, we have been very busy and we simply haven't made blogging a priority. Truth be told, we read blogs on a daily/nightly basis but we fail to update our own blog. Lame - we know. We are prepared to do better. Are you ready for a brief overview since our last update? Here we go:
1. I changed jobs. I used to work for Ancestry.com (just had an IPO last week) and left in March. It is a great company and it was a great job. I worked at Ancestry.com for 6+ years. They put me through college (literally paid a lot of my tuition) and launched my career. It was hard to leave but the opportunity to work for a new company doing exciting things was too tempting. I now work for Mozy.com and am very busy as we ramp up some new products and partnerships. I'm still in the same, exciting field of Business Intelligence and we're building a pretty serious data warehouse for Mozy.
2. Cora keeps growing up. She is now 2 going on 16. She talks a lot and says some pretty funny things. Today in church she told me in Sacrament Meeting, "Dad, calm down sweetie." She is girl through and through. She loves and takes constant care of her baby doll. In addition, loves slides, parks, Kamryn's house (neighbor), church, books, running, and Mickey Mouse.
3. We celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary in Hawaii. We bit the bullet and we went on a nice 7 day Hawaiian cruise. We loved every minute of it. Even the 12 hour flight delay which caused us to miss the boat the first night. We even loved getting sea sick on our snorkeling trip to Molokini Crater and feeding the fish, if you know what I mean. Ultimately, we had a great time and can't wait to go back. Some highlights were mountain biking the Volcano, riding scooters to magic sands beach in Kona, kayaking and hiking to a waterfall, relaxing on the beach, seeing the Napali coast, visiting the Dole plantation, etc. To view a bunch of pictures from our trip you can click here.
4. Landscaping. It took us all summer but we finally got the sprinklers, grass, trees, bushes, etc. installed. We just have a few more little projects to get done but the big stuff is done and we're glad it is.
So, thank you for being loyal readers and followers of our lame blog. Hopefully this post will keep you coming back for more. Here are a few pictures:
