    Rose, Thorn, Bud

    This is not the typical family post. It’s about bikes. I’ve listened to quite a few cycling podcasts that have asked for a rider’s rose, thorn, and bud of their year/season. I really put some miles down last year, so I thought I document some of the good, bad, and what’s to come in 2023. […]

    Shades State Park

    Doesn’t blog in two years then posts twice in a row. With the weather being unseasonably nice for a couple days this week, we thought we’d do an even longer hike since we had a great time at Nipper Wildlife Sanctuary yesterday.

    Costa Rica: Part 3 – Sloths!

    If you know Sarah at all, you’ll know that she has a slight obsession with sloths. She calls them her spirit animal. Fact: Sloths have a nasty bite. We were just 30 minutes from a Sloth Sanctuary. Of course we had to go. The purpose of the sloth sanctuary is to rehabilitate injured or abandoned […]
