Danforth Fire – 10/20/2023

Going up to Danforth is usually a decent amount of work. But we reward ourselves with big fires from all of the work we accomplish. Today, we had some interesting fire. First off, it was bigger than normal. Sonora enjoyed helping out using the leaf blower to make the flames bigger! Danelle watched on wondering … Continue reading “Danforth Fire – 10/20/2023”

Front Porch – 10/3/2023

We love our large front porch on our house. Its mostly covered and out of the elements, but the stairs are not. They are 18 years old at this point. We’ve painted them a few times, but some of the steps just needed to be replaced. A little maintenance goes a long way. We started … Continue reading “Front Porch – 10/3/2023”

Apple Cider – 9/29/2023

One of the most frustrating things about COVID-19 was the cancellation of events. One of the events that was our favorite annual tradition was Josh’s Apple Cider party. Held in the fall, Josh would purchase several bushels of apples and have friends and family come over to help process them. You could say I’m a … Continue reading “Apple Cider – 9/29/2023”

Symphony In The Park – 9/21/2023

Forest Park Forever hosts an annual symphony in the park. This year, we made it a point to attend this free concert. The weather report showed that it might rain a bit, but would be a wonderful night for a concert. Sonora was worried about getting good seats, so we made it a point to … Continue reading “Symphony In The Park – 9/21/2023”

Cardinals Game with Deck – 9/19/2023

The annual (or periodic) trip to the Cardinals game with co-workers was more enjoyable than usual for all of us. Hogan spent the entire game in the box having baby time. You can just see the back of his head above me, not watching the game live or on the TV. Sonora and I watched … Continue reading “Cardinals Game with Deck – 9/19/2023”

Sunset Race – 9/14/2023

There is a part of me that wishes the Sunset Race was more popular. That would mean more boats out every month enjoying the water. As it sits, its a monthly reminder for me to use my boats and enjoy the outdoors. Most of the time I have some company. Today it was just myself … Continue reading “Sunset Race – 9/14/2023”

Salt Lick Trail – 9/9/2023

I was looking for some weekend adventure and talked Danelle and Sonora into hiking. I wanted to try something new and selected Salt Lick Trail. We used Google to map us to the trailhead and that was a mixed blessing. The main trailhead is along Bluff Road, but we selected the other end. That ended … Continue reading “Salt Lick Trail – 9/9/2023”
