May 2020

We’ve finished the third full month of COVID-19 in the US. We’ve done a decent job of keeping socially distant, but sometimes Corvin and I just need to get out. So we go on unicycle rides!

We went out to Jo Jo’s place near the St. Francis river to help her dismantle an old barn. Mark found a large black rat snake that he caught and relocated before continuing our work.

Speaking of wildlife, we’ve been taking groceries to Danelle’s parents to keep them out of stores and safe. When visiting their house, we check on the baby birds in the carport.

In the spirit of staying socially distant I have not gotten my hair cut. I got it up in a small bun to annoy the girls.

And finally, what would the Internet be without a cat photo. They sure like having the window open!

Mark’s Birthday – 5/30/2020

With Covid-19 in full swing, we have not seen much of our family. Mark had his birthday and the idea was to do a drive by birthday. We offered to hang out for the hour outside and help entertain Mark. To assist with this, Hogan the T-Rex came by.

Its always important to get in a nap when you can.

Grandma Carol came by and the T-Rex tried to eat her.

We made the most of a birthday party while maintaining our distance. I think having us around make Mark’s day!

3/22/2020 – Meramec Paddle

Sometimes you must need to paddle on the river. Today was one of those days. Jo Jo, Mark, and I went out. We got upstream. After a while,we took a detour on Fishpot Creek. The water was high and we were able to paddle back a ways. We stopped to try and identify a very rusty car on the shore.

We never did figure out what type of car it is, but it was fun exploring.

Grandma Carol and Corvin Birthday Bash – 10/20/2019

We celebrate birthdays in groups at the extended family level. Its an excuse to get together and enjoy our lives together. Today we’re celebrating Grandma Carol and Corvin’s birthdays.

And of course, other family silliness.
