Up North, in Michigan's Wild Kingdom

Up North, in Michigan's Wild Kingdom
“Mom!” Yells 11 year old Zoe, all excited. “What?” I ask. “A brown ferret or weasel run across our beach!” she squeals. Cool, I think at first, then I worry that it may be someone’s pet that’s escaped or lost. Seeing as the day before, Zoe was running to the dock and heard panting next... Read more »

Out for coffee

My parents just left after a wonderful two week visit with us in Chicago.

Buzz Off!

Asher was nearly five months old and more interactive by the day. Life was becoming somewhat “normal.” We decided to take a quick trip to... Read more »

Adventures in Puerto Rican Camping - Part 3

After my brother Jadit spent the first morning of our camping trip dealing with the Seven Seas, Fajardo authorities and getting a brand new window installed in his vandalized car, he was finally able to relax and start enjoying his day sometime around noon. To that end, he popped open a Medalla beer and announced... Read more »
