Snow Day!!!

Thanks to the snow from Saturday night and Sunday, the whole family was home for a snow day today!  The forecast initially called for 3-4 inches but we ended up receiving about 9 inches total.  We decided to pull out the Go Pro this afternoon to get some nice footage of fun in the snow.  Enjoy and I hope you don't get motion sickness!


Kaitlyn and Dad Go Kayaking on New Year's Day

A quick entry to share the kayaking trip Kaitlyn and I took to Ashburn Lake on New Year's Day.  Kaitlyn asked to get out in the kayak so who was I to say no :)  Temps were in the low 50s and the overcast skies and breeze made it feel a little cooler.  We brought a few worms and fished for a bit but had no luck.  It was a fun way for my little girl and I to to kick off 2019.  Here's hoping for a happy and healthy 2019 for all.


2018 One Second Everyday

This is the 3rd year that I've used the One Second Everyday app to create a "year in review" video for our family.  The app allows you to choose a small (1-1.5 second) video clip or photo from your camera roll every calendar day.  I usually go in every few weeks (or sometimes a month or 2 goes by) and select which videos or photos I want to use for each day.  There are days when I don't have any photos or videos, but because I really cherish these videos year after year, I've gotten better about remembering to take them. 

Without further ado, here is our 2018 On Second Everyday video.

Mountain Biking at Algonkian Park - 12/30/18

The boys were back on the mountain bikes when a beautiful Sunday afternoon presented itself in late December.  It was sunny and in the low 50s, a perfect day for burning calories, taking in the sights, and sloshing through some mud!  Ron and Jonathan were joined by Mike, Michael and Marshall for a 2 hour, 3+ mile ride.  All had a great time despite some bumps and bruises.  The boys did a great job of making it through the mud runs and up and down the hills.  Mike and Ron were happy to make it out with no injuries.

We installed the Go Pro on Jonathan's bike, which he was super excited about.  The improvised handle bar mount worked just fine but we're looking for a head mount to further reduce the bumpiness of the video.  Enjoy (and don't get sick)!


Goose Creek Kayaking (w/ Go Pro) - 12/29/18

Quick blog to capture my recent outing on the kayak with our new Go Pro camera.  I visited a new part of Goose Creek so I wasn't sure what to expect.  It was a great hour trip with about 45 minutes paddling upstream and 10-15 minutes to get back.  I got a little wet at the end (totally worth it, best part of the trip!) but luckily I was a few minutes away from getting out.  Temps were in the high 40s and I was surprised the water wasn't colder.  After watching the videos, Jonathan is excited to head out with me next time.  Enjoy.
