Blog life has been a bit up and down over the past few weeks and I have not done a summary of posts because of it. So, I am pulling some of the revenant ones since the last one instead of listing them all.

New Traveler In the Family!

The reason things have been quieter is that my wife and I welcomed a new little child into our family – a little girl (our other girl is 11 years old so it has been a while since we had a baby girl!). She is doing great and has our whole family wrapped around her little, little finger. 🙂 Cannot wait to take a first trip with her which will likely be to get her passport before too long!

The italicized posts below are from the title.

And that is it! Back to regular posting from now on!
