I need a vacation to recover from my vacation

Oy vey. We went to visit L's family for Thanksgiving last weekend, and we brilliantly decided to take the overnight flight back. We landed in Boston at 7am Monday morning, and then I went to work. Hopefully after this weekend, I will finally have recovered from our vacation. Here's our trip in pictures.

We went to L's brother's house for our Thanksgiving meal
I forgot to take a picture of the turkey before carving it up

L's mom invited her photographer friend over to show us how to use our new camera

One of his tips was to photograph Badger in black & white

Another was to try out the star filter (I forget the technical term)

And we went to the Suns game and watched them beat the Hornets!

Badger and Mushroom had a much more relaxing vacation. They stayed home, and our dog sitter came over several times a day to walk, feed, and play with them. Our Thanksgiving trip was a blast, but I'm ready to spend this weekend napping and playing our new video games.

P.S. If you haven't already, check out these fundraisers / raffles that our blog friends are holding:


  1. I love the black and white picture of Badger! I need to learn how to take black and white with Athena...!

    Looks like you had a fun Thanksgiving...but I agree that I need another vacation after the holiday too!

  2. The black and white picture of badge is awesome! You can also get the star light by lengthening the shutter speed. (I took some awesome pictures of our Christmas tree last night that I will be posting sometime today.) I have a fundraiser/raffle going on as well if you want to stop by that would be awesome.

  3. I've always had a hard time taking photos of black dogs, and that is such a good idea about black and white. It's so you can figure out the settings to help bring out their features? I think I need to try out that star feature thing too. Luckily, Mr B has outfitted his tepee with sparkly lights!
