Cousin Play
Anthony and his cousin Grace
at Grandma and Grandpa's, Rootstown Ohio

I'm back in Kyoto after a couple of weeks visiting my folks in Ohio and a friend in Milwaukee.

I've accomplished a lot in the week I've been back:

  1. Gotten over jetlag

That's an impressive list for me after a transpacific trip.

I also got a new MacBook pro set up (upgrading from a circa 2010 model) and replaced, for the umpteenth time, failing Seagate Barracuda hard drives in my NAS (giving some Western Digital NAD drives a try this time).

What I haven't gotten done since returning is a much longer list, including processing photos from the trip, writing blog posts, or reading email. So today I'm trying to chip away at this list with a few photos from Anthony's first day of play with some of his cousins, also visiting Grandma and Grandpa (from California).

Looks Cool but with a maximum speed of a lazy adult stroll, it was more fun when they were little -- Grandma and Grandpa's -- Rootstown, Ohio, USA -- Copyright 2014 Jeffrey Friedl, http://regex.info/blog/

After The Batteries Died

I was about to lament on how many photos that I still have to get to from this short trip, when I realized that I have 3x the photos from last year's trip that I've barely touched...


One comment so far...

Love these shots! Thanks, Jeffrey, for taking such great photos of our kids on vacation together! My kids are already pestering to visit Cousin Anthony in Kyoto.
