Mom got an iPad

Mom got an iPad

We had our family birthday get together the other day and Mom got herself a new toy. She bought an iPad and she loves it. I knew she would. Here she is using it to take a photo of Colby (my nephew) who was being totally cute, as usual. Mom is going to be my iPad accessory tester too.

It is like my phone (HTC Inspire 4G – also … Continue Reading →

Normally I type up my menu and list on the computer (in … Continue Reading →
