Stephanie and I are planning a trip to the DC area in may for The Whiteboard Sessions conference being put on by my friend Ben Arment. Can’t wait for the time away and meeting some new friends out there!

Right now we’re trying to line-up hotels and flights out there. Man this stuff is expensive. Stephanie wants to book now, I think if we wait long enough the rates on will keep coming down. What is your experience with this? Now or later?

*If you have an frequent flyer miles you want to transfer let us know! We’d be happy to work out some compensation. 🙂

Vacation Highlight #2

Loved having extended, uninterrupted time to be with the kids. Working so far from home and so many hours each week wears on me sometimes. It was nice to wake up and know that I would be available to the kids each day. We did lots of fun things. A few highlights for me were…

1. Driving to South Bend and visiting the beautiful Notre Dame campus. Go Irish!
2. Taking Jacob and Izzy to watch Surf’s Up at the movie theater. (only 2 0f 5 stars though)
3. Walking around St. Joseph looking at all the painted cars and having ice cream.
4. Playing in the waves of Lake Michigan.
5. Jumping on the trampoline.
6. Going walleye fishing with Jake and catching some big ones.
7. Swimming and playing the pool.
8. Multiple wrestling matches in the bedroom. jujhj

You can see pictures of many of these events here.

Vacation Highlight #1

On Friday night Stephanie and I had a chance to go on a double date with our good friends the Kerr’s. We went to Comerica Park in Detroit and watched the MN twins play against the Tigers. Baseball in an outdoor stadium is sweet, can’t wait for the Twins to get an outdoor place. Everything about the night was perfect – free tickets and parking, great seats close to first base, a free hat from the gift shop, a hot dog and nachos, being next to my love, 70 degree temps, and an 11-1 thrashing by the Twins. You can see more photos of the stadium on my Flickr page, here.
