Vacations
Kenya

In December 2001, Wendy's Grandpa Steele took the entire family on safari in Kenya. Here we all are (except Craig) next to the hippo river. The shadowy figure in the back, right is an armed guard whose job is to keep tourist-death-by-hippo stats down. Craig got scolded for going too close to the hippos (i.e. he was practically in the river). We'll post more photos from the trip when we get time.

Germany

In September 2004, we took a trip to Germany to visit Wendy's host family. Susanne and Uwe took us to the Leipziger Zoo. This is a photo from the brand new savannah exhibit. Notice the grass stains on the little giraffe's knees. We hope his mother has stocked up on Clorox 2. Wendy just found the CD of our Germany photos during a recent closet clean-out. Since they are already digital, we'll hopefully get them posted soon.

Cincinnati
We had a blast from the past over Memorial Day weekend. We visited our friends and family in Cincinnati and took a trip down memory lane in Clifton.
Pittsburgh

We visited Wendy's family in Pittsburgh, PA at the end of August. It was not as relaxing a trip as one might hope, beginning with a grueling 2 hours to the Ohio/Michigan border. Read all about it here.
