So starts what appears to be a tradition – well, at least we are having fun doing it. For the last two years we have joined some friends camping over the halloween weekend. This year our “non-group” camping crews swept the pumpkin carving contest … my talents left our family out of the winners circle – but we hang with those who won. Congrats everyone.
Joe takes his first crack at carving pumpkins … well, before he got bored and decided to dance to the tunes we had going. We had several campsites gather together to carve … so there was a lot going on. Plus, Joe doesn’t like to get messy!
While Joe took to the streets as the ‘RocketMan’, Owen went as our little pee. We had a lot of fun hitting each site for sugar hit. Joe’s favorite was the haunted house — not because he like going through it, “No, Joe scared”. However, he thought it was funny to watch other go through … we ended up standing there a long time.
During the days they had a small festival going, and being a state park it was being run by the ranger crew. Joe had no problems getting he fingers into things here!
In other news: Owen is now rolling over back-to-front, front-to-back and he was spotted on separate occasions by both Melissa and I up on all fours. Lock the doors … we’re going to have two on the loose.
Also, post camping and I was setting up a gallery of the trip when our MacBook took a dump. Appears that the HD crashed. So we will be needing to replace that sometime soon and sending the old one for data recovery (suggestions/recommendations?).
WE WILL BE DOING MORE BACKUPS.
This is actually the first time I have had a harddrive crash on me to the point where it is not seen by the system. Ugly!
But … we have lost many of our photos from the last year, which really sucks. I am just glad I have the blog for my record. Two things noted: Need to burn more CDs … Need to print more pictures for the photo albums.
Update: note the discussion boards … sounds like we are not alone.
