Since I was working this Halloween, I decided to do something Halloweeney with the kids before Halloween. Trader Joe’s hosted a Halloween event.

We road down there on bikes, the kids in makeshift costumes (from a dance show and from years prior)

Kids got to play games, listen to pirate stories, get face paintings, and tattoos, and of course candy!

The video was filmed and edited all on my iphone 4s.

Oct 22, 2011 Coyote Lake Camping

Took the kids RV camping at Coyote Lake. I’ve boated here before but never camped.

I was pleasantly surprised that the campsites were really nice. Spacious and flat. The kids fished and road bikes around.

The fishing was great for them. Lots of bluegill to be caught.

I even brought Scout along. All in all, the trip went pretty well for going solo.

I shot mostly pictures because trying to get good video footage would have been too tough to setup. Working on a 2.5D video of the pictures.

I’ve never been to Fleet Week in SF and thought this would be a good time to go. The weather in SF was awesome. Sunny and warm. Fraiser went with me to help corral my kids. We took the train up from San Bruno then walked along the Embarcadero.

We waited for about an hour in line to board USS Bonhomme Richard. Once aboard we checked out all sorts of aircraft and vehicles. It was pretty cool.

Afterwards we ate at Red’s then headed home.

Went to the pumpkin farm in Morgan Hill to pick out pumpkins and attend Grant’s birthday party.

We went with the Dedes family. Finished up with a birthday party and then picked out some pumpkins. A good day.

Tulia once again performed at the Santa Clara Art and Wine festival. I setup the GoPro and dropped it in front of the stage. But apparently I hit a wrong button and didn’t get any video :(

But I did get pictures and some short clips of Tuli. She did great. Its amazing to watch how she has progressed over the years.

It also amazes me how many dances she is in now. So many routines to remember…

My sweet Tuli

Tuli you are so sweet. I went to your second grade back to school night and I saw a picture you drew for me. It was posted on the wall and it made my heart melt.

You don’t fully realize it yet but you hold my heart in your hand. I love you so much and would do anything for you.

Anyway thank you for being my baby girl.

I love you so much.

Dance Zone Team BBQ

Dance season is here and what better way to kick it off than with a pool bbq.  Almost the entire team came.  The kids loved the pool.  Great food, fun, people, and good times…

I got a chance to shoot with my HD gopro in 60fps.  This was my first try at conforming 60fps to 24fps for super smooth slow-mo.  Final cut pro is great for this.  I’m still learning.  Found out if you convert all your fottage to apple prores 422 then you dont have to render every time you change something. Pretty cool.  Anyway here is the video.

My beautiful little girl. Tulia, you are growing up so fast. Such a pretty girl. I always knew you were going to be.

I can believe how old you look with your hair cut. You love dressing yourself in clothes of every kind. You are so fashion conscious.

I love you my little girl.
