Campout Weekend

Friday night the boys and I went to the local chapter of the Izaac Walton League for a Boy Scout Campout. They used to have a website but they don't any longer. We earned the campout by by clearing some Autumn Olive shrubs for them.
Memerable points:
  • Awesome weather Friday afternoon
  • Really cool/cold over night, like 34
  • Awesome weather Saturday after the sun came up
  • Kyaking was cool
  • Spencer dumped, love that pond smell dude
  • Ian nearly dumped and caught a lot of water

No relevant picture, sorry. But here's one of me and Ian showing off the goodies from our Easter Egg Hunt.

Trilling Thursday

Great day at work, well, pretty great anyway. Landed a bit of work that we had been shut out of 1 year ago. The customer ran into problems, they asked us to help, we did and now we're back in. I love it when a plan comes together! (It wasn't my plan, just a hope.)
I have an awesome story from Jim and Nancy; This is a story about Dawn's boy Levi. Levi is a twin to Luke. They are 4 1/2. The Sunday school teacher is explaining the Crucifixion to the class. She said if Jesus hadn't Died on the cross we would all go to Hell for our sins. It was quiet and Levi said "Holy Crap!" That is a little boy that gets the consequences.

Tonight was Spence's spring concert. He and the rest of the 6th graders did great. Below is my usual "Where's Spence?" photo. Since Cindy always checks really early in the morning, I am going to say that the first one after Cindy to correctly ID Spence wins a pizza made by yours truly. Lawyer talk: must accept prize at my location, only one winner allowed. Cindy gets a pizza when ever she wants. Judges decisions are final. Good Luck!

I have tried to upload video on this but it just doesn't work so well. So I have uploaded to YouTube, just click here and maybe you'll be able to see Spence.

Have an awesome day!

Wonderful Wednesday

I have discovered that my work stress has abated enough for me to get my mojo back. Today was a day that I was blessed all day long. It started with an email that was uplifting through proving our point to a customer and winning the work through a nice quiet dinner with Holly to picking up the boys from youth group and discovering that it was bird night and I could hold them. Very cool.
Is that was the "Blue Bird of Happiness" looks like?
Anyone remember "Beretta"?
I held the one shown below, and she was heavy, but you can't say that!

Aside to Larry. Yeah, it's tough when they head south for a break and we're stuck. But soon enough we'll be riding and they'll be on 4 wheels. I have a tire getting replaced and couldn't ride today. Rats! Patience, that what I need.
Aside to Cindy, awesome that the whole family still does the big Easter thing. I guess we'll keep it going for awhile longer.
Have a great day!

I am struggling with this blog lately since I'm not in my happy place with work. Don't get me wrong, I love work, the job is crazy busy. But how often do you guys need to hear that? I thought so, not very often. With that out, what's left is me striving for a humorous this or that.

That's part of why I've become so erratic with my posting.
As I consider my lassitude, I realize that I have just missed Larry and Terri's 21'st anniversary. Wow, that's a long time. You are still cute couple though. Happy Belated Anniversary!

Finally, here's a self photo of Spencer and I. We are a cute couple.

Have a great day!

Happy Easter

Great day here today!

Church was fun. It was Easter Sunday so lots of people were dressed to the nines. Then it was also a Baptism Sunday, so that's always cool. There 10 or so scheduled baptisms and 37 unscheduled, where people came out of the congregation and were baptised. Pretty awesome.

The boys demanded a Easter Egg Hunt. Holly and I thought that we were beyond that, but I can see that they are hoping to continue the tradition well into the future. Here's the boys with their goods.

Have a great day!
