Race for the cure – Indianapolis

Today we participated in the Koman Race for the Cure (local news). We walked the 5k route. Afterwards, Debie, Tom and Ty did a balloon release in memory of their fathers, who both passed away on 19 April of different years.

Pictures are here.

This one is my favorite – I got tired of carrying Shane. When I put him down, I asked him to carry me for a while. Well – he tried!

Uncle Mike is tired!

Birds of a different kind

We left Sunday. We got back last night. We spent three nights away unplugged from the world. We stayed at a lodge at Lake Wisconsin. The lake is still frozen, but it made for some awesome views of the eagles and osprey as they sat on the lake.

If you are looking for a place to get away and unplug for while, Lake Wisconsin Resort is a recommended destination. You check out their photo gallery here.

Oh – hint to Dave, the resort owner – we’re looking forward to the live web cam on your site so we can watch the flying squirrels at night!

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
