Personal | Daytrip to the Great Smoky Mountains with Jing & Ping

Life Travel

I’ve been pretty good about pumping out the wedding-related posts, and even recently doing a quick write-up of a new restaurant in Downtown Altanta. What I have not done recently, is shared any personal photos of just our normal life, which mostly revolves around Miles of course. Well, most days for us are really not that exciting with a schedule of waking up, taking Miles to the park and/or museum, while either Betty works on her dissertation or I edit wedding photos/videos. A couple of weeks ago when it was still relatively chilly out, we headed up to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to take Betty’s PhD classmate and visiting professor from Chengdu, Jing (and her husband Ping), on a roadtrip! If you do read every post on this blog (or are Facebook friends with me) you will have seen Jing and Ping before while they’ve been here. First, a few photos of Miles running around downtown taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M5…

Unfortunately, the weekend we decided to drive up to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, one of the main roads was closed due to a landslide! So we only were able to drive a few miles into the park and not all the way to locations like Clingman’s Dome =(. Any time Miles doesn’t have to wear pants is a good day for him (he spilled juice in the car right before these photos)

While waiting for some wedding videos to render, I was going through folders on my desktop and found the "Oslo to Blog" folder from... April 2016. Sooooo yeah I've been meaning to share these photos for about a year now, and while I have some "free" time letting the computer do it's thing with a wedding video, I might as well throw together this quick blog post! Two blog posts in a row that are not Indian weddings, craziness! At least the last blog post was a wedding. this one is just pure travel photos. Last year our "big trip" was heading over to Europe to see London, however I snuck out early thanks to Betty being consistently amazing, and ...

Personal | Taking Miles to Zoo Atlanta for Party of the Planet
As has become sort of a new "tradition" around here, Miles lately just looooves to sit in my lap and ask me to watch YouTube videos of Thomas the Tank Engine. Slows down my productivity a bit but it does give me time to use a second browser window to at least be able to write on the blog. That's the good news, the only "bad" news is that at the moment the only non-wedding content I have ready is just some personal photos of Earth Day! We headed over to Zoo Atlanta for their "Party for the Planet" mainly because they were going to have a Thomas & Friends interactive display (notice a theme here?) as part of the festivities. We are annual p ...
