Name Vote Results

Thank you for taking the time to participate in our online poll to name our son. 71 votes were cast and the winner is... "Luke"! We may or may not take this into consideration when we actually name our son, but it was fun to see what you think. The final decision is a secret until he's born...

Dave's New Gig

The office driveway:Two weeks into my job at Reliant and it's going very well. I'm a "Systems Engineer & Program Manager" in product development. Here's a few pictures of some people you may recognize who've been treated with our product:
I don't know who the marketing girls are, but they seem to be doing a good job at getting our name out there. We make the industry leading laser skin-resurfacing product called Fraxel. It's the safest, quickest, and most effective way to get rid of acne scars, age spots, malasma, and wrinkles. You should all go get a treatment. =)

Natalie off to work for her last week

Only 1 more week of work for Natalie! Then 2 weeks of rest until the due date. She's still landing big accounts even though she's supposed to be winding down.

Carmel Day 2: Reti(red) in Carmel

Weekdays are a great time to see Carmel: we always got our parking spot right next to the beach, 1/2 price B&B's, and no need for reservations anywhere. The pic below shows where we started our days each morning. Good spot for eating breakfast, reading, praying, and people, dog, and wave watching.Our first B&B was lame -- loud, old, dirty, and bright lights outside that shined in all night. So the next morning we called this magic Carmel super hotel helper person (who we later found out was "Resort 2 Me" (800) 757-5646); she was great and set us up with our own cottage at a much better B&B at an amazing price. Call them first if you're going to Carmel, they've got inside info on all the deals in town. We felt like we were staying in Marie Antionette's Versailles room:
We took about 50 pictures of this sunset, difficult to choose just one to post, but here it goes...
After sunset we headed to dinner at the Grill restaurant. I needed some filet mignon.
Notice my reference to The ONE Campaign in the title of this post, I'm so witty.

Carmel Day 1: Last Getaway

Our weekends will be filled up pretty soon so we headed down the coast for one last getaway.

Stopped by a friend's nursery on the way to Carmel. His new business is going well -- and he's even running for Trustee, vote McShane! (if you live in Hartnell) Strolling along the beach, with the 10th hole at Pebble Beach golf course in the background.
Even the gas station signs look nice in Carmel.
Great sunset after dinner at the Hog's Breath. Looks like Natalie ate a little too much...
