  • Shades State Park

    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. After having failed at many family hikes: too long, not enough fluids, no…

    Nipper Wildlife Sanctuary

    Nipper Wildlife Sanctuary is just a 10 minute drive from the house. We’ve taken the dogs out several times. Each time they love exploring, smelling, and thinking that they can catch up to wild life. Winnie especially loves darting in and out of the grass. We’ve always explored the south side of the sanctuary which…

    Michigan – Family Trip 2020

    Alt Title: It could have been worse. Dear reader. This trip was taken during the 2020 Covid-19 Pandemic. We as a family wore face masks in all public places. Avoided crowds as much as possible.

    Memorial Day Weekend Recap

    Cast iron skillet brussels sprouts, bacon, and onions

    I hated brussels sprouts as a kid. What was missing was a heavy dose of bacon. These are a favorite of mine on the grill. They’re super easy to make and everyone gets their veggies.

    Worms and guts

    We got about 4-5″ of rain the other day. The kid spent most of his time in the basement consuming mass amounts of YouTube and who-knows-what content. He came upstairs and was bouncing off the wall. Mrs Shoo sent him outside to play in the rain. The other neighborhood boys soon followed.

    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…

  • Costa Rica: Part 2 – Grayson

    Although you may have to deal with “I am hungry”, “Are we there yet?”, “Can we go?” “When are we going to be there?”, travelling with a kid is kind of fun. Grayson has plugged into several YouTubers and he is adapted their style. Here are his Grayson2HD videos.
