Finally walked to the lake

Well, after living here for more than 3 months, we finally decided to hike through the trees, weeds, and bushes behind our house to check out the lake that's behind it. With the weather getting cold (mid 30's to low 40's) most of the leaves have fallen off the trees and bushes so it made it a little easier to get through. Plus we didn't want to get poison ivy again. Well... I didn't want to get it again.

Once we came out the other side, we could finally see the lake. It wasn't really as big as we were expecting it to be, but it was still pretty neat. Way on the other side there was a house with a big backyard that backed right down to the lake. I bet that cost a little bit.

Happy Anniversary to us!

On this day, 5 years ago, I married my best friend, Juli. I have been the happiest guy in the world every minute of every day since then. :-D

The Gathering of the Mustangs

We went to the Gathering of the Mustangs show this weekend. It was in Columbus which only took us about 2 hours to drive to. It was pretty cool to see Dr. P again and there were a lot of planes there flying around doing all kinds of silly things that planes should not do. Some of those pilots are just crazy! Near the end of the show, they had a bunch of the planes all flying at once and some did some simulated bombing runs, but they had explosions going off all over the ground so it was really neat. The sky got filled with all kinds of black smoke and I bet that people who didn't know what was going on probably thought that a plane crashed!

"That pilot is NUTS!!!"

This man used to fly a P-38 in WWII. The book that Mark is looking at has a bunch of photos and magazine articles the man collected during the war. It was really cool.
