Back from Cancun

We arrived back in Denver after an awesome week in Cancun. There's no real good stories to tell, just lots of fun, laughter and relaxation with family. Below are some pictures from our trip, as well as many others on Flickr.

Right before I left last Saturday, I released AppFuse 1.9, then went to watch the Broncos vs. Patriots at Invesco Field. Today, it's the Steelers. It's pretty cool to come home to a town this excited. Go Broncos!!

Matt, as a fellow parent I wonder how you guys made out far away from home with such small ones. I have a 14 month and a 3 year old and we have shied away from long trips (long meaning by air) and would be interesting in any tips you may have. Cheers, Geoff

I thought Rita gave a good pounding to Cancun and Cozumel. Any evidence of that? On the topic of AppFuse 1.9: Thanks Much! You work is very appreciated. I was wondering if you had any further thoughts about "changing AppFuse's SiteMesh decorator to use a CSS-friendly template". I would love to be able to slap in some of those sweet examples from CSS Zen Garden.

Geoff - it was pretty easy taking the kids to Cancun. First of all, it was a direct flight (under 4 hours) and my parents were on the same flight as us. If we ever travel to Europe with the kids while they're little (under 5), we'll likely only do it if we can get Julie's mom or my parents to help us out.

Bron - yeah, Wilma beat the hell out of Cancun and there was lots of evidence of that. About 50% of the resorts are open. We really enjoyed it because no one was there and it looks like a place that could be very crowded.

As far as a more CSS-friendly default decorator for AppFuse, that's on the roadmap.

any ETA on Tapestry 4.0 integration now that you're refreshed from your vacation? ;-)

Ken - I'd love more than anything to work on the Tapestry 4 (and WebWork 2.2) upgrades. Unfortunately, I have clients, work todos and friends coming into town for ski season. There just aren't enough hours in a day. My guess is it'd take me a full day to do - and that's w/o answering e-mails. ;-) A realistic estimate is probably early March.
