Grand Rapids Chalk Flood 2009

Today Heidi and I met Jill and Jason at the Grand Rapids Chalk Flood. Downtown Grand Rapids was filled with people decorating the sidewalks, walls, streets, trees, and just about anything else within reach. It would be hard to imagine having a more beautiful day for it. Here are some pictures.


Afterward, we headed to the Winchester for dinner and drinks with my family. It's a great little bar down on Wealthy, but we never would have found it if they hadn't told us to watch for the motorcycle guy on the sign. They had both good food, and good beer too. No pictures there, unfortunately, so you'll have to take my word for it.

Easter 2009

We hope everybody had a good Easter. Ours was a busy one. We went first to the Breen Easter for dinner and the annual egg hunt. Fun was had by all, since the kids decided they would re-hide the eggs for the adults to find.

Afterward, we went to the combined Wever Easter and birthday party for my aunt Lori. We missed dinner, but made it in time for a very impressively decorated cake. It tasted as good as it looked.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year from Key West. Pictures coming soon. Hope everybody is having a good holiday.

Go Green!

LA Trip (better late than never)

I'm just getting around to posting a few pictures from a business trip to the LA area (Long Beach specifically) way back in May. The pictures are from the couple hours I took in the evenings for sight seeing. All in all, it was a good trip, though I'd be perfectly happy never passing through LA International Airport again.

New Pictures

We've used our new internet access to upload some more of our backlog of pictures from this summer. First, there are some new ones in the Gatlinburg album. We've also added some new pictures:

This Post is Coming to You From Space

...or at least from our house, with a brief layover in space. In other words, we finally broke down and got a satellite dish. Two of them really: one for internet, and one for TV. Of course, tonight would be the night we get a big storm that messes up the signal. Now that I've gotten this through the storm, though, I'm heading to bed.

More pictures

We spent another couple hours at Panara, and Heidi has posted some more pictures. First, are most of the pictures from our trip to Gatlinburg, Tennesee back in June. Next, we have a couple from the Kent Cottage. Finally, we have some from the Bolen Cottage. We're not caught up yet, but we're getting there.

Soccer Pictures

We finally were able to post some more pictures. The new album has pictures from some of the nephews' spring soccer games. They were posted from Panera, and it took over an hour to get them uploaded. At that rate, it's going to take us a while to get summer pictures up until we get some broadband at home.

Silver Lining to Gas Prices?

Nobody likes the gas price trends, but heres a paper that points out a possible good side. It links low gas prices and obesity. The idea is that higher prices make people drive less, walk more, and eat less unhealthy restaurant food. This assumes that people cook more healthy meals than restaurants, I guess.
