In Action

21 October 2009
I suddenly find myself in love with a 30 y/o man. Eric's big 3-0 was yesterday, and we celebrated with crab legs & frisbee golf. Eric always beats me terribly, but it's good fun. This is Eric below making a nice mid-range shot.

This 2nd video is of us experimenting with one of Ty's wedding gifts - a parasail! None of us really knew what we were doing, but after about 2 or 3 hours and a lot of face-planting, we finally got it up! Turns out we had it upside down the entire time! Once we fixed that little problem, it was a peice of cake. We were a hilarious sight those first few tries - there were about 6 of us trying to hold the parasail open and high-step it on the sand bar to keep up with the boat, eventually being sucked down to the water, face-first when we couldn't keep up anymore. We always felt like we were so close, but because it was upside down, we never stood a chance (the wind was forcing it the wrong direction). Just watch until 1:10 or so. Thanks for recording Tiffany!

Fall...

18 October 2009
How can anyone dislike the fall? It's stunning. So stunning in fact that I've been stealing pictures from our sunroof while driving. For the past week, we've had 70 degree weather & gorgeous blue skies. Eric and I have been doing our best to take advantage of the season - ice blocking, frisbee golf, street markets, a little hiking, and a lot of football.
