Back in June, my family decided to meet up in North Carolina for a well-deserved family vacation. We were trying to get everyone to go, but my sister-in-law was out in Canada at the time, visiting her birth parents, and my brother had too many rehearsals imposed by his band's CO, so it was my parents, me, my sister, and my brother-in-law.

Here is a picture of us (with two strangers in our boat plus our raft guide, Nicole) in the French Broad river outside of Asheville. It was our first whitewater rafting experience, for any of us! We also learned that the French Broad is the third oldest river in the world, behind the Nile and the Nu rivers. It makes sense, since the Smoky Mountains are so rounded; our guide told us that they are one of the oldest mountain ranges on Earth.

(L-R: Me, my sister Rosanne, our guide Nicole, my dad (behind the lady in the front), my mom, Paul (brother in law), and guy in front

This is a picture of me and my dad enjoying a beer in a German restaurant in Georgia. We stopped off at Helen, GA on our way back to the Atlanta airport (where my parents would drop me off). This is significant because my dad never (hardly ever) drinks anything alcoholic...

Fast Forward!

This next picture is me and my pasty coworkers. This was taken when we took our intern, Derek, out for lunch on his last day here at Boeing before he went back to school to finish his masters degree.

I had to throw in my Simpsons avatar in here ;-) (you can make your own at if you are so inclined):

And finally, here is a picture I pulled off the web of my sister practicing intubating someone at the Johns Hopkins simulated operating room area-thing-a-ma-bobber. She is currently a resident in the anesthesiology department.
