A (Long) Weekend of Adventure

Zemanta Related Posts ThumbnailJust got done with an awesome 4 day weekend.  All the best parts included our daughter Delilah, with the exception of the ball.

  • Delilah discovered her feet
  • Play date with Landon
  • RIT Alumni President’s Ball with Matt and Calin
  • Drunken Pumpkin
  • Some Hiking
  • A few family Geocaches
  • Letchworth State Park
  • Lots of play time with the little one

Love being able to relax and just spend some quality time with the family for once.  Had a blast all weekend long and even spent a night out with just Rachel, which is I think is important for us to do now and then.

Because I Need More To do

I’m not staying busy enough (end sarcasm). So I’ve signed up to be a Fairport CERT member and I’ll be attending training sessions every Wednesday for the next few Months. I’ve always been interested in this sort of stuff. Even considered joining the volunteer firemen a few times but just never took the time. Should be interesting.

Oh and I’m not missing the opportunity to be a part of TEDx Rochester this year. I was contacted by one of the organizers a few weeks ago as a result of last years post. I think I’ll have a guaranteed seat which is sweet. Can’t wait.

Next few months will be busy.  Again. Guess I just need to get used to it.

The Camp Chair

Zemanta Related Posts ThumbnailEvery home needs a Camp Chair whether it’s your primary residence, vacation home, RV or your cabin in the woods. The camp chair should be warm, cozy, well loved, big, green and a tiny bit of smell doesn’t hurt either. It should immediately make you sleepy, or at least make you contemplate a nap. It should have a nice view of the fire and be in close proximity to it so as to add warmth to make you sleepy. It should have memories, and it should be not just yours, but everyone’s favorite seat in the house. It should never stay unoccupied for long because someone else will surely be along to slumber in it.

I’ve had 2 previous camp chairs in my life and both fit that description perfectly. We just recently added a lazy-boy recliner from Rachel’s grandmother’s house to our living room and it immediately struck a chord. It’s brown not green but it’ll do nicely.

The really fun part though is planning the camp chair for the new addition on our camp. I think I have a perfect spot picked out we just need to find the chair.
