So, John wanted us to try out Google Hangout tonight. He and Brittany called Crystal and me and we joined in a group chat. The sound quality wasn't quite as good as the Skype group chat, but it had the advantage of having the ability to put funny hats and mustaches on yourself. We even added a birthday cake! That was fun! We also could watch the same YouTube videos together. It also had the added advantage of being free, which makes it hard to complain about the sound quality! It was nice to hang out with the kids for a while, as Ed is somewhere in the sky between Colorado and Maryland tonight!
