In the Pumpkin Patch

We went down to the ol’ pumpkin patch today to pick out a very special Friel Family pumpkin. More pumpkin pictures can be found here.

Happy 3rd Birthday Sullivan!

We had a pool party at Grandma and Grandpa Black’s house to celebrate Sullivan’s 3rd Birthday. Some pictures from the festivities can be seen in the June 2014 photo gallery.

Everything Zen

I’ve migrated the photo gallery to Zenphoto. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for a while, and WordPress forced my hand seeing as it’s incompatible with PHP4 while my old photo gallery (Scry) is incompatible with PHP5 and my web kung fu isn’t good enough to overcome this. The new gallery can be found here. Most of the photo gallery links in the older blog posts are probably broken now, but I don’t think it’s worth the effort to fix them.

The February 2014 gallery only contains 2 new photos, but included is my new favorite picture of the kids.

Happy Xmas (War Is Over)

I took hardly any photos this year. Here they are. Keep the change, ya filthy animal.


Happy Halloween!

Happy Birthday Sullivan!

Today is Sullivan’s 2nd birthday, and we celebrated with a pool party at Grandma and Grandpa Black’s house. Some pictures from the get together can be found in the June 2013 photo gallery.

April 2013: The Return of the DSLR

I’ve made it a point to try to take more pictures with the DSLR, as opposed to just snapping a pic with my cell phone. Taking a decent picture of a child is hard enough without dealing with poor optics and slower than Christmas shutter speed. Here are a few of the pictures that I took in April.

A Long Overdue Update

It’s been nearly 6 months since this blog was last updated, which can only mean that I am a lazy, bad person. I’ve uploaded some pictures from October, November, December, and January. Enjoy.

The Backyardigans

Sophia and Sullivan enjoy a lazy Sunday afternoon in the backyard. More pictures can be found in the September photo gallery.
