Sonora’s Winter Formal – 11/5/2023

Sonora was going to the winter formal this year with a bunch of friends. The first step is finding a suitable dress. There were many more than the image below shows, but you get the feel of what she was thinking. She ultimately picked a pretty blue dress! Finally she was off with a fun … Continue reading “Sonora’s Winter Formal – 11/5/2023”

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”

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”

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”

August – 2023

It wouldn’t be a good month without at least one cat photo. Coatrack is our family favorite and here is Sonora hanging out with him. I got an action shot of Dylan at the office. He left the company for another opportunity, but left his mark! I was able to see Kiersten and her daughter … Continue reading “August – 2023”

Volleyball – 8/30/2023

Danelle has played on the same volleyball team that her brother invited her to for at least 15 years. There was a small break during Covid, but the team came back. She’s the longest lasting player as people come and go on the team. This is best demonstrated by the fact that our kids are … Continue reading “Volleyball – 8/30/2023”

Festival Of Nations – 8/27/2023

We wanted to get out together before Corvin left for college. The Festival Of Nations in Tower Grove Park was an easy choice. We had gone before and found it a good time. We planned to sample more of the diverse foods there than we had in previous years. With a pocket full of cash, … Continue reading “Festival Of Nations – 8/27/2023”
