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.

My little Nolan

Sometimes you act all big and tough. But sometimes you are a sweet, scared little guy.

I had to leave for work this morning. Usually I leave before 6 so I don’t wake you up since you’ve been sneaking in to my room and sleeping on the floor.

But today, just as I was stepping out of the door at 530, you came running down the hall crying. Back to your spot in the floor I take you.

So now here I lay for a while till you fall asleep again.

Love you little guy.

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.

Nolan, why do you sleep on the floor?

Every night, you fall asleep on the hardwood in the hallway. You start out on the floor in your room where we read to you. Then you sneak into the hallway and fall asleep there.

Then sometime in the night you sneak into our room and lay on the floor next to me. You bring your blanket and pillow.

Funny little boy. Love you.

Nolan sleeping

Nolan, why do you hate sleeping in your room? I remember when I was 5, I would sneak into grandma and ye ye’s room and sleep at the foot of their bed. Now you do the same thing.

You won’t even sleep in your room. You fall asleep in the hallway and I have to pick you up and put you in your room. Then sometime after midnight you wake up and sneak in.

I love that you find comfort and security in sleeping in the same room.  Love you little man.
