This past week I took on the challenge of organizing my kids (8&10) *tiny* @LEGO_Group pieces. I found this process to be surprisingly therapeutic. What’s more, they actually found pieces 100x faster, played 10x more than before and managed to put stuff BACK where it belongs 🤯

The rain this time of year makes any outdoor activity challenging in the PNW, but those brief moments when the sun peaks out for a quick break make up for all the gloom.

Took the fam to the first @REI store (downtown Seattle). They have an amazing exterior with trails and waterfalls, not to mention the architecture 😍

After months of projects (plus a good dose of procrastination), I finally found some time to clean and organize our out-of-control “project closet” this week. We’ll see how long it lasts, but hoping these labels will help direct the kiddos where stuff *should* go.

Made another trip out to #ebeysLanding on Whidbey Island with the fam while everyone is still on break from work. This is quickly becoming our fav getaway spot.

On a recent family hike I was disappointed I couldn’t get a close enough shot of an eagle perched on a tree. Grumbled quietly to myself I wish I could zoom in farther with an optical zoom (vs digital). The Mrs was listening and came through with this @moment telephoto lens!!! 🤗

First video shot+edited on iPhone 12 pro featuring one of my fav tracks of 2020 by @fordsounds🎶

Pro tip: @YouTube doesn’t 100% support HDR colors, so you have to turn off HDR when exporting in iMove (iOS) to prevent colors getting totally washed out 🤷‍♂️

Wife and kids got me this for Father’s day. Now every time it rains I *have to* take a peak outside and admire the ambiance it creates. 👌😌👌

One my fav UI elements to build for @DannPetty’s new .com was the “YEWWW” pagination. Lots to consider here. How many “W’s” is too many? Do we need next/prev links? Pretty happy with the results.

If you dig it, check out Dann’s UI class this Jan!!!👇

My wife and I have really got into collecting houseplants for the first time ever. We’ve accumulated a good number for just about every room of our house, but this one on my night stand has easily become my favorite. Definitely helps relax my mind after a long day. 😌

First “long exposure” test shot. Not a fan of how these effects seem to affect the image quality, but the results are pretty sweet.

Found this Shelf Fungi on our walk today. Looks as if it’s growing off this tree stump like a piece of wood with age rings.

Kiddos have been collecting legos-as-xmas-decor over the years. Fun seeing them get excited when we pull them out of the box to assemble.

First night with the iPhone 12 Pro. Coming from an iPhone 8, this camera is blowing my mind. Would never consider taking a pic with this lighting before. 😳🤯👏

Found out I can trade in my iPhone 8 for a decent amount of cash with @TMobile (almost 3x apple’s offer). Thinking the Pro Max has the specs I really want (mainly want a better camera), but worried I won’t like the jump in size. Am I overthinking it? Is it not that bad?
...so @MKBHD is saying the camera isn’t worth the upgrade to the Max. Any nay sayers out there? I tend to agree with Marques on most of his tech impressions, but really want a better camera 🤔 ref: https://youtu.be/qrzCLgDplTw

...and @reckless has entered the ring with his review saying the Max camera *is* worth the upgrade when considering its superiority in low-light conditions. Ref: https://youtu.be/vtJqOQPB2XA
