Day 92 – OK, so I was working on the school yearbook all day long, looking at photos. Then we headed off to karate and then to a movie for date night, then home late. We didn’t go to bed until after midnight when I realized I had not taken a photo on my DSLR or phone all day long. I was super bummed, and was going to just call it a miss. Colin suggested I find a webcam in Hawaii where it was still April 1st, so I got this shot of a volcano in Hawaii! Phew.
