Chocolatespoon: Emily’s Musings

Archive for the ‘Travel’ Category

A photo I took when we were visiting Seattle has been included in the Schmap Seattle Guide: Seattle Aquarium.

Had a week off from work so we all went to Westport for a few days to see family and friends.  Clara had a fantastic time and I took a million photos of her playing with her cousin, her grandparents, 2 uncles, 3 aunts, a great-great aunt and some good friends.  We went to the beach, Stepping Stones children museum, the Maritime Center (aquarium), out on a boat, and did a lot of back yard playing.

Here are a couple of my favorite photos from the trip:

Heading off this morning to attend Internet Librarian, one of my favorite conferences and really the best one for the work I do. My colleague Karen and I will be speaking on Tuesday at a session on “Revitalizing Content in the Enterprise” about how our team “promotes research and library resources to audiences around the company through as many channels as [we] can, including blogs, wikis, mailing lists, RSS, surveys, social bookmarking, old-fashioned tabling, and other methods.” We’re also hosting a dine-around for special/corporate librarians (which was one of the first ones to fill up!)

I missed last year’s conference (being busy having a baby and all) and am excited to get to go this year!

The first photos from our trip are now up on Flickr. There will, of course, be many more (we haven’t even gotten to the wedding part of the trip!)

There’s even a little video of her on the airplane (but I’m experimenting with putting it on Flickr instead of YouTube this time, which unfortunately means I can’t embed it here in WordPress… grrr.

In Israel

Posted on: April 14, 2008

Checking in from our trip to Israel.  We’re taking tons of photos and video of course and will post some the first chance we get to be somewhere with wireless instead of just popping in from other people’s computers.  The flights went remarkably well and we had a fun day touring Amsterdam during our long layover.  The Amsterdam airport has fantastic babycare lounge areas which we took full advantage of.  We arrived at around 3am the night before last (without my luggage unfortunately) and are seeing lots and lots of family here…

Our vacation here in Palm Springs is winding down. We all gathered this morning for the big group shot in our matching Camp Ann shirts. There are many more photos on Flickr. We head home tomorrow.

After Betty’s very short visit, S and I drove Mom back down to Pebble Beach where she and Bill are visiting friends and attending the big Concours D’Elegance there. Here are a couple of photos from our visit:
