A Fall Walk in Hopkinton

A couple of weeks ago Michael and I took the corgis for a walk in the Hopkinton State Park. It was an amazingly beautiful day with the leaves still in color on the trees. Below are a few pictures from our adventure.

A Reference Rainbow

I’m stepping away from our usual posts of personal life for a moment. What you’re about to see is so cool that I couldn’t resist sharing it with you on our blog. Christianity Today has posted an image of Biblical cross references. For me, seeing a visual representation of a deep truth is beautiful and profound on many levels. The graph won an honorable mention in the 2008 International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge, which was sponsored by the National Science Foundation and Science journal.

When Christoph Römhild, a Lutheran pastor in Hamburg, Germany, sent Carnegie Mellon Ph.D. student Chris Harrison a list of 63,779 cross-references between the Bible’s 1,189 chapters, the two became enthralled with elegantly showing the interconnected nature of Scripture. Each bar along the horizontal axis represents a chapter, with the length determined by the number of verses. (Books alternate in color between white and light gray.) Colors represent the distance between references. Graphic by Chris Harrison, Carnegie Mellon University.

Kayaking with Daniel in Boston

Before the wedding, my brother Daniel came up a week early to hang out with Revel and I and enjoy MA for a while. One day we went to the Charles River in Newton and rented kayaks. It was a beautiful sunny day and I thought it might be good for me to be out in the sun before heading to Hawaii. 🙂

Ocean Spray Commerical 2008

For the last couple of years Ocean Spray has been filming their commericals on my dad’s bog. My family is BIG into industry and are proud to be owners-members of the cooperative. Below are a few pictures of the filming they did this year.

Corgi Update

Tasha and Daisy are adjusting well to life in Milford. Their coats have grown in beautifully (I had them shaved in the summer… something you’re not suppose to do to a Corgi – oops!) and are ready for winter.

Enjoying Autumn

Moving up to Milford has proven to have its advantages. Within minutes of where we’re living we have access to numerous walking trails. The ladies (Tasha and Daisy) have been enjoying themselves as well!

We’re back!

Ok…so we’ve been back for a while now, but we are now back on the blog as well. On August 30, Revel and I were married in Carver, MA. Then we had a great honeymoon to Hawaii (Kauai and Maui). We uploaded a bunch of pictures, so check them out.

Album 1 – 2 days in Boston before Hawaii

Album 2 – Kauai part 1

Album 3 – Kauai part 2

Album 4 – Maui

Hope you enjoy them.

Now that Revel and I have settled in a bit into married life, hopefully we will have some more time to make this blog active again. Stay Tuned!

Deep Sea Fishing (Bachelor party)

This past Saturday my friends took me out deep sea fishing off the coast of Newburyport for my bachelor party. This was my first time deep sea fishing. While we didn’t catch a lot of fish, we had a great time with beautiful weather and I was happy to spend the day with all of my good friends. I really appreciate the great time out with all of them, not to mention the friendship I’ve enjoyed (and will continue to enjoy!) with all of them over the years. Now I get to join the “married guy” club with all of them.

Here’s a few shots of the day, but check out all the pictures in this photo album.

The Bachelorette Tea Time

My girlfriends surprised me with a lovely high-tea Bachelorette party at the Concord Inn. We enjoyed endless pots of gourmet tea and goodies. I so enjoyed just hanging out with the girls and relaxing. Here are a few pictures:

Don’t we look beautiful?!
