Oh, the places you will go

I know I haven't been posting too much lately.  January turned into a month of projects for the "day job" and some much anticipated travel.  Plus, I kicked back a little after a busy few months of assignments for my favorite client.  A few weeks ago I traveled down to my annual technology conference located at World Disney World's Swan and Dolphin hotel.  I've been fortunate enough to have been able to go for the past 13 years and it's always a week of learning, seeing old friends that I've made through the community of like-minded geeks and a little R&R thrown in on the side.  Since the event is held on the grounds of the "Happiest Place on Earth" I've made it a point to bring my camera gear along with me.  And since it's held at the aforementioned magical place the "party" held on one of the nights is usually at one of the local parks.  This year there were actually two trips to different parks. Epcot and Hollywood Studios. At both events, fireworks were the major entertainment and when Disney is involved, they don't skimp on the show. Another part of the conference is that there is usually a big name band to kick off the conference on Monday morning.  This year the band American Authors kicked things off and they were fantastic.  So here are some pictures from the week around the conference.
So with the conference behind me and hopefully a little bit easier end to this winter that doesn't seem to end, I will get things rolling again with adventures in Tuscarawas County.  I'm also planning on kicking things into high gear for the studio business this year including a contest for a free sitting for a high school senior.  But that will be coming in a few months so stay tuned for that!  For now, enjoy these pictures of my week away.
