A total eclipse...

of the Moon.

We had a pretty good view of the Lunar Eclipse this morning... I wish I had been awake enough to better use my camera's settings, but by the time I figured it out the moon was gone. Oh well, I did get at least something captured.

It fell behind the trees as the total eclipse happened... then the sun came up and I had to head to work so I didn't get to see it reemerge. Here's a couple of star photos I took between moon shots.

LOL.. I've been doing so much catching with photos, I thought it would be a nice diversion to catch up on the 5 billion links I've collected over the past three weeks.

Let's start off with some funny pictures that other people have taken:

How about some news of the cool/weird:

How about some cool/fun flash goodies?

Let's wrap it all up with a creepy/funny video:

Weekend updates

Saturday we went to Carson's preschool teacher's house for a picnic... Thursday was his last day of preschool, Monday he starts in prekindergarten. So this was a graduation party of sorts. It was a perfect day for hanging around outside, very mild with a nice breeze. Sunday I mowed, cleaned out under Carson's playset and laid in some recycled tire mulch... it looks pretty good. Some day we might put it under the swings and stuff too, it's pretty soft to land on. Finally in the evening I put up the last shelf I had on hand in the garage. So I have done the lights in there, made space on the walls to hang stuff, and now I'm utilizing overhead space as well. Here's a couple pictures going along with the above stories.

Branson photos, day 7 & 8

Last two days in Branson! We went to the Titanic Museum, which was awesome... they don't allow photography inside but I snapped a couple outside that are pretty good. Later that day we went back to Celebration City and rode some more rides. I took two pics of the welcome center for the resort as well so that I could remember what it was called.

I guess I'll have to start doing real blog posts again... heh.

Branson photos, day 6

On our 6th day in Branson we took a Scenic Train Ride... it was a two hour trip complete with snack/drink service. The kids had a great time and the dome cars were really cool to ride in. That night we went to Celebration City... Carson got to ride a whole lot more rides than our last trip to an amusement park. He's now right at 42 inches tall. On with the show...

Last set of photos to be uploaded and showcased tomorrow!

Branson photos, day 5

So day 5 rolls around... we took it easy in the morning, the boys wanted to play on the park near our condo but that didn't last long given the crazy heat. In the afternoon we went to a Broadway tribute show they did a ton of show tunes with matching sets, it was pretty good. On our way to dinner at Dick Clark's 57 Heaven Diner we stopped at the Stone Hill Winery for a tour, some samples, and a few supplies.

Stay tuned for Day 6.

Day 5 tomorrow!

Branson photos, day 3

On third day at Branson we went on a tour in a Duck... it's an amphibious open aired bus. Carson even got to drive when we hit the water. After a hot day out on the town, we relaxed by the pool to end the day.

Stay tuned for Day 4...
