Smiling that the fire alarm is no longer going off, originally uploaded by Carl's Photography.
We went to sleep around 10-10:30 pm. Next thing I know, I'm up standing by the door turning on the light. It takes a moment to realize why. It is 11 pm and the fire alarm is going off in our hotel. I look out the peep hole, but do not see any fire or smoke. I get dressed and am getting my laptop and camera packed up. Becky gets up and is all red and bleary eyed. I say to her as clearly as I can muster through my own bleary eyes 'Grab anything you need, we might not be able to come back for awhile'. She looks at me confused and in that moment the fire alarm goes off. False alarm. I was exhausted and fell right back asleep. So in this photo, I can finally muster a smile after a weary night.
