It was my 25th birthday, so it was kind of a big deal ;) quarter of a century. yep. sounds older when you say it like that. My birthday is on May 6th (if any of you want to get ... see more >>

The quads are all lined up and ... see more >>

They got us annual passes for Christmas, so we got started right away on that to get our "money's" worth. While we may not have gotten pictures of tiger sharks and polar bears ... see more >>

All for Fun and Fun for All

Today's going to be a more fun post. I think the month of September was overwhelming for us. Even though we really didn't do a whole lot, it was our first experience with demolition and construction and whatnot, so I decided that we needed to have some fun times. First, one day when Kyle had work and I had the day off, my friend Rachel ... see more >>
