Autumn’s here!

Put a few miles on the four-wheelers this weekend. It was a drizzly weekend, so there was no dust. Yay! And there were lots and lots of puddles. I love puddles.

We rode out to one of our favorite spots, which seemed like a good change to check out the new panorama function of the iPhone 5’s camera. I overdid it a bit, I think, because it bowed a little too much.

I really pushed it with this one. I … Read More »

Not quite the Kowalskis, but fun nonetheless

Taking off

This weekend we’ll be celebrating the American way of life with friends, barbeques, four-wheeling and campfires, while reminding our children (and ourselves) to remember the men and women who and served and sacrificed their lives to preserve that way of life.
