24 Hours of Salsa "Afton"

Another year in the books. Thanks for all the family and friends that came to support me and the boys as we climbed Afton Alps from Friday at 5 pm until Saturday at 5 pm. I rode 7 laps but was only to ride the "Man Handler" 3 times (I hope Monte likes the picture with me walking next to the Whistler sign).
The weather was great and I think that every one had a great time.

So while Mollie was working I spent the evening in the kayak on the Mississippi River. I put in about 12 blocks from our house and paddled up steam for about 30 minutes. I turned around and let the current bring me home. The little trip was about an hour long at sunset.


Today I took Peater and his friend Cody fishing. Though we did not catch much we still had a great time.
It is amazing that Peater just turned 15. I met him when he was 8 and we have seen each other every 1-2 weeks for the last 7 years!!!! When I met him I did not have a digital camera (not to mention a phone that took pictures) in fact I did not even know what a blog was. Wow how time flies.

Kyrsten's squeeky shoes

This week Mollie went to visit her sister in-law and her nieces and nephew. They have shoes that squeek with every step. We pray for Ben and Crystal's sanity.

New Car

Mollie bought a new car yesterday, a Subaru Baja. The Baja is a cross between a Subaru outback and pickup. It has a sporty look and fits Mollie really well since she did not want a truck but wanted a vehicle that is safe for baby and for hauling compost.

It is a manual transmision and she will soon be great at driving a stick shift.
