More Fun in the California Sun

When I was a kid growing up I remember parties that my parents and us kids sometimes attended, where the host and hostess had just returned from a whirlwind vacation to some exotic locale, a place we were never likely to visit, to view their vacation slides. Mostly us kids just wanted to play and having to sit still and be quiet while someone droned on about their vacation was sheer agony. The internet and more specifically a blog has replaced those types of parties, what with the invention of digital media and the ease of up loading photos online, no one has to sit through a bunch of slides and politely ooh and ah when appropriate. You can now pick and choose what you want to view or none at all.

So this post could alternatively be titled, "The post in which I bore you with more vacation photos." And if you decide to click away, I completely understand. But this blog is somewhat of a digital scrapbook for me and I want to save a few of the best pictures.

On a side note I would just like to say how very disappointed I am with Apple and iPhoto and iLife because you cannot make a simple photo collage. If I want to make a collage it is complicated and time consuming and very limited by what you can and can't do with a screen shot. If any one out there has a better solution that won't cost me an arm and a leg I am all ears!

That last photo tells the whole story!

I like your vacation pictures. The feet picture is very creative. It all looks very beautiful, like a great time.

I love the canopy over the bride and groom-so pretty!
I agree with Fringe Girl...that last shot pretty much says it all!
