We saw a gaggle on the lake.  The background has a haze from the wildfires in the Canada.  At certain points we could not see clearly across the lake.  It hit our area through the jetstream.  Hopefully, the fires end […]


I am not a big fan of going outside when it is cold out (I obviously live in the wrong climate). However, we do occasionally venture outside for some winter outside activities…as long as they don’t take too long. We […]


Time for another World’s Toughest Rodeo!   We made sure Kai had his allergy meds before we went to the rodeo, and he was good to go!  Both kids got soda and other sugary treats so they would be able […]

A few of the fireworks from this weekend when we went up north and “camped” in an RV with family.  It was fun, and the kids got to go fishing and have smores, so all is good in the world. […]

Yep, the ducks are still sighted in our backyard.  Eventually we should see some babies, I would assume!

Tonight Kai and I traversed around the lake.  He on his bike and I in my tennis shoes.  I had to walk fast (occassionally jog) to keep up, and got some pretty shots of the lake on a lovely Spring […]
