Simplicity


This highlights to me the importance of simplicity (cute kid alert!). You can’t help but appreciate the simplicity of these pictures, when most folks would have been taking pictures with a cake, balloons and plenty of presents.


It also helps you appreciate the sweetness of that age. And makes me a little jealous that my parents never thought of this. Is it too late now for me to have a karate party? I promise not to pronouce it Kah-rah-tay.

  1. That’s sheer perfection–getting all the gang together for a karate party. It should be illegal to have that much cuteness in one place!

    But, hey, even I can look good if I have a professional photographer taking my pix! Admit it, that is one heck of a great photographer.

  3. HeatherLeigh says:

    Tim…umm, maybe ; ) let’s say that is a *great* photographer and cute kids. I think it can be both. Those kids have personality.

    Hi Heather,

    Great photographs at the karate party. Were the photographs professionally taken?

    Maybe you should have you next MS team building event at this location. We did a fencing class for a past team building event and we have never worked so hard – actually the humiliation of getting beat by an 10 year old teaches you a lot.

    Best Regards,

    William

    P.S. I finally have my onsite MS interview this week : )

    William-I would assume that they were taken by a professional. I can’t imagine a lay-person took those photos.

    I have a feeling the karate party wasn’t in the Seattle area. I don’t really know anything about it, but it could be an interesting team building dynamic…karate chopping your co-worker ; )

    I do have to admit those were some awesome photographs!

    Heather – LOL!! A karate party would most definitely be an invigorating and maybe even fulfilling team building dynamic! I bet some people would love to "kah-ra-tay" with some co-workers once a month. I wonder if that will even relieve tension or cause more… There should be a study done on this, but in any case I bet co-workers would be looking forward to the end of the month!

    I hate to say it, but all of those kids look like they’re from the Village of the Damned. A good hearty steak wouldn’t kill them.
