Probably the last 80 degree day so we went to Hanson Lake for a dip and rope swing.
Kiddos and I went to Fallison and Crystal Lakes for some adventuring. Bullfrogs were hard to catch.
I previously posted about a rotten wall because of a lack of flashing on this house. Here is some of the progress.
Did the whole picture in low res and never noticed. Doh!
Stop motion animation fun with the kids. Gonna have to think real hard before I ever do this again. Way more appreciation for stop motion animators after this.
This will no longer be an art blog. It’s going to be a blog about stuff that happens in my life because I’m really vain and think my life is super important. Not really. But my dad did some pretty cool stuff in his life and all I hear are the stories. He flew a plane with my mom while they lived in Nevada and worked as a steel worker on high rises. They would fly to Tijuana and the California coast. They didn’t take any pictures. I barely have any baby pictures. They just weren’t those kind of people. I guess they lived in the moment.
