It’s like Where’s Waldo, only my daughter is Waldo and I forgot what she’s wearing.

My daughter is there somewhere, but where? Finding her usually isn’t too bad; as long as I remember what she’s wearing. Unlike Waldo though, she’ll come find me if I don’t find her first. I’m usually following right behind her though so I don’t have to play Where’s Lily. This playground happens to be at Hyland Lake Park Reserve in […]

A trip to the fair and a weekend away make for a great Labor Day weekend.

Labor day weekend this year started with me taking Friday off and heading to the Minnesota State Fair with the family. The fair is always a good time. I’m a big fan and wish I could see it all and do it all. We had plenty of eats from pork chop on a stick to mini donuts. A […]

But anyway. What’s cool do to in and around Colorado Springs? Or on our way there? We’re not in any big hurry […]

Is it: Internet FTW or WTF?

Every day there are three things I have to check out. First, what’s up on Twitter. So many tidbits of information, links and pictures. Then I head over to Facebook to see how those kids are doing. And no day is complete without posting something to one of my many WordPress blogs. Since Facebook, Twitter […]

John Denver vs Nickelback – Which life do you want?

While listening to my iPod, it played Rockstar right after Thank God I’m a Country Boy. Turns out, they’re both songs about the life you’ve been given. One song from 1974 one from 2006 with two very different stories. John sings about how he works hard, enjoys the simple things and lives his life with […]
