Out with the ISN team

with one comment

The ISN team went out on the town today.  We took a break from the site and spent the afternoon at the OMSI.  Our first stop was lunch at PF Chang’s.  Next we headed downtown to tour SS581, a Blueback Sub.  We wrapped up the afternoon with a viewing of “The Alps“  The Omnimax theatre was incredible!  I highly recommend it.

What’s great about these type of events is that we get to spend some time getting to know more about the people we work with.  We can let our hair down a bit and have some fun.  I like the people I work with and enjoy getting to know them better.

And yes, I took pictures of the event.  The low light inside the sub made me choose ISO 1600 for many shots.  It’s a great effect with the red lighting.

Fiber is coming…

Hurray!  Fiber is coming to my town soon.  I can’t wait to get some very fast Internet.  I also hear they will have digital TV as well.

Out for a Sunday drive

without comments

After lunch, we decided to head out for a Sunday drive.  We wanted to visit the Elk in Jewel.  It’s pretty cool to have so many Elk so close to us.  For some reason Emily kept saying she wanted to see goats.  On the way there we saw sheep, cows, and horses, but no goats.

All of the pics are here.  Below are a few of my favorites.

What a sight!

I never get tired of this view :)

One of the picnic tables at the turn out was a memorial for someone.  There were beautiful flowers placed there.  I couldn’t resist.

Did I mention it’s snowing here?

Emily ate as much snow as she could get her hands on!

Had I wanted to go actually go to work ( as opposed to working from home), it would have been an interesting experience trying to get out of the driveway.

But doesn’t our street just look great?
