Box-O-Swag

|
It's always a good day when a box of Texas swag shows up from Boo & Pops.


Let's Do This.

The Stop.

|

Walking On Sunshine

|
First trip to the new bus stop.

Not as close as the other one was to the house in Jefferson, but the view ain't half bad.


Hillside Timestamp

|
The top picture is from this past Saturday, bottom picture is four years ago.  Same little lady, same hillside, same happy dad.



Tarara Time!

|
Saturday nights during the summer mean one thing to us...Tarara Winery summer concert series.

Where's Our Oscars?

The C & O Canal Tow Path is an old boat path used in the 1800's to early 1900's to transport people, services, and products from Washington, D.C. to Cumberland, Maryland.  Included in the tow path are a series of locks to helps the boats move up river easier.  Each lock has a house where the residents would live and take care of the lock.  

Many of the houses are in states of disrepair; however, a few of the houses have been preserved and you can stay overnight in the houses...glorified camping.  Most of the houses are very primitive; no electric and/or no running water.  A couple of the houses, closer to DC, do have electric and water.

I've run on the C&O for the past few years and it is one of the places I go to "escape."  Recently on Facebook the C & O Canal Trust posted looking for volunteers to shoot a commercial that they would use online with their new marking campaign for the lock houses.  I emailed them and we set up a day and time to shoot the commercials.  





They Be Rollin'

|
The Frederick High Wheel Race is a one-of-a-kind bike race (the only one like it in the nation) and it happens in our adopted home town.  The old school bikes, some are actually very old and some are new nigh-tech versions, race through downtown Frederick and do as many laps as possible in an hour.

Really cool event and great to see the crowds get bigger each year.

 

Enjoying The Moment With AB.

Bay Bridge From Below

|
If you know anyting about the Bay Bridge, or if you have ever been over the Bay Bridge, you can appreciate these pictures.  Never thought I would see the bridge from the water...very humbling.

The size is hard to scale in pictures.



A Friend's Boat Is The Best Boat

|
I love boats.  I love the water.  I enjoy everything about the boat lifestyle, except owning the actual boat.  

I have no desire to own a boat - just seems like a lot of work.  But, some people love it and I love it that they love it.


 



My Crew.

Fort Worth Happenings

|
After the wedding, we headed north to Fort Worth to spend a few days with Boo & Pops; as well as Booger and Cody-Man.







Wedding Day Hoopla

Texas Summer Trip: Part Deux

|
The Wheat's headed to Houston for a family wedding...the day(s) before the wedding required ample pool time due to the hot ass temperatures.  Hades and Houston could have been easily confused for one another that week...temperatures well above 100*.





One Day, Two Kids, Two Teeth Missing.

Front Teeth, Back Sides

Candid shot of Colton and AB as they get their picture taken after both losing a tooth within 10 mins of each other.
