Last Friday was Fair Day here in New Braunfels, TX. All of the schools had a half day and the city hosted the county parade. It was my first time experiencing a parade in Texas and it was quite a site. For one thing, the parade was 2 hours long! The second thing that had […]

Comal County Parade & Fair Day!

Last weekend I visited the First Annual Texas Grape Stomp Off at the Vintage Oaks community. I’ve never attended a stomp off so I was really interested in what happened. I showed up to the first group competing. They each have a large bucket to stomp in My friends Ben and Brazos getting ready for […]

Texas Grape Stomp Off

I was invited to drive down to San Antonio on Wednesday to hang out with Brian Hancock, another cool photographer in the area. Brian also does some sweet re-designs for Blogger blogs. We went to a nice sushi and thai place called Mon Thai and I had some good chicken panang.

My neighbor has been watching some kittens for a couple of weeks before they go back to the shelter to be adopted out. They are so young and all needed to be fed by bottle which was so cute. This is their first day adventuring out into the backyard into the green grass. He thinks […]

At the camp they also had a talent show in which two students just rocked the house. Armani and Stephen did an amazing rap with the band playing behind them. I love this photo of Armani! Stephen

Summer Camp Scavenger Hunt

After the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International conference this year I decided that I needed to get a new toy to help get me excited about sitting in front of a computer for retouching. I’ve passed along all of my general editing to my super fabulous editor, Sarah, but I really wanted to start doing […]

Loving my Wacom

I believe this was the first time that I have seen a dog riding on the back of a motorcycle. The goggles are a great touch! Have you guys seen anything like this before?

Hog Riding Dog

Saturday night I headed to the Gruene Hall here in New Braunfels, TX to see a great Arizona band. Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers were great. You could tell they loved playing in small venues where they can play for hours. Their new album Turbo Ocho is wonderful and is available in iTunes. I stuck […]

Fun, New Braunfels

Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers at the Gruene Hall

One of the funniest things that I received before moving was an old award that we would hand out when I worked at Starbucks. For those of you who don’t know, my last name is Pals and of course I get the “You’re a pal!” joke all the time. So in honor of my name […]

Fun, Personal
