Mason had his birthday party a little early this year, since we thought it would be fun to have the party with the SLC crew. When asked what kind of cake he wanted he said he wanted a pirate cake, and Michele indulged him with the best birthday cake ever. Look at the execution of the concept! Look at the attention to detail! It tasted good too!

Some shots I took today while on a hike with the boys. I took these shots with my new Canon 60D which I am learning how to use. All of the pictures except for the first one were taken with a 40 year old Nikon 50mm manual lens. I am really liking mixing old lenses with the new camera body.

Spring Break! Yeah, no middle-schoolers for an entire week. So why do I feel so stressed? And why am I wondering what the statistical probability of two people having the same birthday while writing a paper about the history of discrete mathematics meeting on a train traveling 75 m.p.h towards New York City could possibly be?
Oh yeah, I am in a Master's Program! I am not actually on spring break, instead I have a whole week to read, write and compute for my program. It is bitter-sweet my friend, bitter-sweet indeed.
All is not lost though. Douglas and I enjoyed a fabulous date night last Saturday evening. I was completely surprised. He arranged for a sitter and everything. We drove down to Hollywood to listen to live music at a little place called the Hotel Cafe. It was one of those, someone he knows at work has a band, and was playing, and there we were, surrounded by twenty-somethings in fedoras. It was a lot of fun. And I learned that I need to get me some skinny jeans and some hot boots! Boo-yah!
