Waterfall Season Opening – 5/5/2018

We finally made a trip out to Waterfall to open it up for the year. It sounds way more fancy than what it is. What it really means is that Danelle and I are going out there to work. We’ll get water in the tank, install the new sink and hose to make the water system work again. Set up the new fire pit and stain the deck. All in a day’s work!

All I managed to capture was part of the staining and the first fire in the new pit, but it was a great day!

Water Safari Training with Terica

With the upcoming Texas Water Safari race, it was important that I got training in. Terica and I went out for several training runs. We collected many tires and barrels.

We collected the barrels three outings in a row and put them in the same spot at Greentree ramp to be picked up by the city. They had to be getting tired of us!

And you know you paddle too much when you even randomly meet friends out on the river!

April – 2018

This month, its all about me. In an effort to get a light above my desk at work fixed, I took a “scared” photo of myself holding a poop emoji. I sent this to the office manager that promptly got it taken care of. But she printed it out and put it on the office fridge.

CoatRack, our large cat likes to sleep on top of us.

A training paddle in a Spencer C3 with JoJo. This is the fastest boat I’ve ever paddled and I thought we would be using it for the Texas Water Safari.

Corvin’s First Track Meet – 4/24/2018

Corvin joined track this year and had his first meet. Danelle snapped a few photos of the action.

People watching between events keeps things interesting. There was one mother that was the complete definition of being self absorbed! Two different times, she walked across the track causing a runner to have to slow down not to hit her. I’m not sure she noticed either time. Then later, she walked right in front of the kids performing the softball throw. Danelle and I wished a kid had hit her so she would start paying attention. Drove us crazy for sure!
