Once upon a time…

Tonight I ran across some pictures on my computer that I haven’t seen in a long time. I’m surprised they made it through the many updates of my system. Because I have nothing to write about except how I should be studying for my two finals, and because they made me nostalgic for a simpler, cuter time in my life, I present these for your viewing pleasure. When we lived in Monterey, CA Joel’s Aunt and Uncle who live in Florida came to visit in September of 2003 and took these.

Then there are the infamous holiday photos. We wanted to take a family portrait, of sorts, with the pets. (The kitten in this picture is Grace; the story of her early demise will be discussed at some later time.) We set up in the “backyard” – if you can call out of control growth of ice plant a backyard. Our friends were kind enough to come over to take the picture, including their little boy who was almost two at the time. Chief could never get enough of him, and was totally disinterested in sitting for this portrait. The photo session follows.

All four of us. Chief goes wild; Joel is mad. All four of us. Chief goes wild, and Joel is REALLY mad. All four of us; Chief dashes out of the shot. All four of us, almost normal. Down in front!
Finally, we wise up and abandon the idea of a full family portrait altogether…
