Technology at Work

Yesterday we got to call Caitlin in Argentina. It was so great to talk with her! We were trying to get our conference calling to work so Nicia could talk to Caitlin with us from Texas, but they really couldn't hear with both our lines in use for the one call. SO Nicia came up with this great idea - she called us on Dave's cell phone, and we just put the cell phone up to the phone on speakerphone and presto - she and Caitlin could hear each other! We all had a great visit, thanks to technology! (thanks, Justin for taking the pictures)

That is SO great!!! I was thinking for a sec, WHY you would have called her--DUH! Mother's day! :)

Hope yours was great!

That's so cool you could do that. We tried it when Jon's brother called at Christmas so their brother in Utah could talk too, but we didn't have speaker phone so it didn't work.
Technology really is amazing.

That was great! Thanks for letting me join in on the call. It was really good to hear from her. Funny that that was how it looked like on the other end!

Yay for technology! My family got to talk to Owen on his mission too. Isn't it great that we have the technology and ability to do that sort of thing?

I love how modern technology brings families closer! I think that's why I got so into this blogging thing, I am getting to know my cousins so much better! Glad you got to talk to Caitlin!

I think that sounds great Dad! I think geocaching is right up your ally! I really like the idea of putting the coins we find with the metal detector in the container we find! Uh...I think you posted the book tag in my comments section...but it's suppose to be a post on your blog! Silly Dad. :)
