We are smack dab in the middle of family vacation season over here! Last week was the Pacific Northwest and this coming week we are headed to see family in Las Vegas. When my family is out on the road we take a lot of photos as we go. There is not much in life better than showing the world to 4 year-olds who think everything new they see is the Best. Thing. Ever!

We tried out the new HP ENVY x2 on our last trip, and having a compact computer to travel with – and an 8 megapixel camera! – made my packing easy. Snapping off to turn into a tablet, it did a great job capturing all the important moments along the way (like our early morning crab digging and our visit to the dock at Green Lake).

After snapping the photos, I clicked the keyboard back in and immediately ordered prints through Snapfish to send to the grandparents and friends we were staying with. That is something I rarely remember to do when taking photos from my camera. Here are a few more favorite shots from our trip.
