September 27th, 2006 · 2 Comments

We did pretty well on the first day. We arrived at 5:30AM and the best thing to do is stay up until bedtime… but only Bethanie and I were able to do that. Angie did great with only a 20 minute nap. Josh was in bad shape and Mollie was too to a degree. Zach […]

Just Shoot Me

September 19th, 2006 · 1 Comment

That’s what my brother-in-law’s Glock 22 said to me the other day… and I was happy to oblige. My family was the fishing/canoeing/camping type… but we were never the hunting type.
