Month’s End – April 2015

Somehow I blinked and the first week of May was gone before I even knew what happened. But here’s a quick recap of April before I blink again and May is over!

Snapshots from April

Month's End - April

I went on both a business trip to Dallas and to Summit 2015 with the highschool students. I flew straight from Dallas to Washington DC and it made for a whirlwind of a week but it was a great one.

In April I started working out more and I’ve been really happy with how that’s going. Before the weather gets too warm I’ve been taking advantage of walking along Tempe Town Lake after work. Hopefully in the near future I’ll be writing a post about what I’ve been doing work-out wise.

Before flying home from DC I was able to spend a few hours walking around the memorials and monuments. The National Mall is one of my favorite places in the world to visit.

My phone has been having camera issues and due to that I haven’t been able to take as many pictures the last few months. I finally got fed up with the problem and after some research found out that there’s a known issue with my phone. My poor phone is currently at the manufacturer getting the camera replaced (for free) but I feel like my ability to keep up with things has been hampered as I’ve had to switch to using an old device. I’m greatly looking forward to getting my phone back.

    • My pleasure Kristie! My favorite Genesis feature is how rock solid the code is. As a developer I have a huge appreciation for well written code that’s secure.
