Our friends Colin and Devlin had a Seahawks themed birthday party at ThinAir Extreme Air Sports today.  This was my first time going to a place like this. It’s a cool place and it wears the kids out pretty quickly. Leslie had a few extra wristbands so we jumped off a few times. It’s a lot […]

We have had a tough winter here in San Antonio. It’s been way colder this year than any other year that I remember. I mean it was below freezing all day today. ALL DAY! Thankfully I noticed it yesterday. I went outside and covered all of our citrus babies in C9 Christmas lights. Then after […]


I know you’re probably tired of the squirrel talk but I have some breaking news. The entire time we have lived here we have only seen Fox Squirrels in our yard. But now over the last few days I have seen a different color squirrel. He’s pretty fast though so I haven’t been able to […]


Have you ever considered not drinking for one month? I did. And I did it. I spent the entire month of February without a drop of alcohol. I came up with the idea and JP played along. I did it mostly as an experiment just to see what it is like. I read a few […]

Last July we came up with an idea on how to stop the squirrels from eating out of the bird feeder. It took them a few weeks but they figured it out. Today I filled the feeder for the first time since last fall. The squirrels noticed right away but they haven’t quite figured out […]

Lily’s volleyball team The Fireballs had their last game of the season today.  A new season starts sometime toward the end of March and this time when I signed her up I bumped her up an age group.

Lily plays volleyball every Monday and Saturday. And of course she had a game today. I think they are undefeated this season. Their team name is Fireballs. At the first practice the coach asked the girls to come up with a team name and Lily blurted out FIREBALLS! So Fireballs it is. Lily is in […]

I walked out in the garage today and this guy was just standing there. He didn’t really move the entire time I was out there.


A few years ago I was reading about Houston when I found out about the National Museum of Funeral History. Anytime anyone has said anything about Houston for the last few years I have mentioned that I wanted to go check out that museum. Today I finally had a chance. I was not disappointed at […]

Yesterday JP had a flight from San Antonio, TX to Houston, TX to Monroe, LA. His plane was delayed out of San Antonio so by the time he got to Houston the next plane had already left without him. He called me around 5:00 and told me that he was stuck in Houston for the […]

We have a pair of Cardinals that hang out in our backyard pretty much year round. I believe they are a pair because one of them is almost completely red. The other one is more of a brownish red color like in the picture below. They don’t let me get very close so I had to […]


Every holiday JP’s mom sends Lily a package. And every time Lily is super excited to open it up. For the last few weeks I have helped my friend Liz go through all of her things in preparation for her move across the country. She gave us three of the signs that she had at […]


For us Valentine’s Day is not really a grand affair. We aren’t really chocolate, cards and flowers kinda people. This year for Valentine’s Day we went to the store and picked out a few trees to add to our backyard. Not just any trees we bought fruit bearing trees. We were so excited to bring […]

Portland Rain

Here are a few things that I took pictures of this week in Portland. 


I sent this SnapChat today.   Later that day we were on a leaking airplane.   We obviously survived the flight.
