A Summit Hike

Friday, 30 September 2016 by childofGod778

Today I had the privilege of going on a hike with a friend that shall remain nameless.  We went on a 12 mile hike on the AT, where we had a healthy lunch along the way.  It was an incredible day, and a great temperature for doing the hike.  This picture was from a vista part-way […]

Gem Mining With The Kiddos

Friday, 23 September 2016 by childofGod778

Took an opportunity to take my kids to a gem mine, and give them the geological experience they’ve been craving (not really).  But they did have a great time, and we got some great gems out of it all! We got a bunch of really cool gems in our large bucket, and the kids had […]

Kayaking With Cynthia

Friday, 16 September 2016 by childofGod778

Cynthia and I have been great friends ever since high school.  She is without question one of the coolest girls I’ve ever known (and that’s saying a lot!).  I went down to Raleigh last weekend, and had the opportunity to hang out with her and her husband AJ as we explored the city a bit. […]

Springfield Times With Shawn

Friday, 9 September 2016 by childofGod778

Not only did I get to see my BFF in my hometown, but I got to go to his hometown too!  Last weekend I was able to take an extended time off work to go hang out with my buddy and do cool stuff at his house.  We went exploring in a cave nearby, hiked around […]

Discovering Nature

Friday, 2 September 2016 by childofGod778

I cherish those days where I get to just go out without a plan and explore!  See the world for all the beauty it can be wherever you find yourself.  Know what I mean?  That’s what makes me feel alive. Aaaaand then you find out you’re trespassing.  Such is life. – 778 –

Brookshire Bike Ride

Friday, 26 August 2016 by childofGod778

Got another chance to do a longer bike ride with the kids recently; it was a fantastic day, and no injuries (which is always a plus).  We went to Brookshire Park and rode around for a long while together. Gonna have them both off of training wheels next summer I think.  Didn’t have enough time […]

Relaxing In The Hammock

Friday, 19 August 2016 by childofGod778

William Duffy wrote a poem once called “Lying In A Hammock …”.  In it, he concludes with “I have wasted my life.”.  It’s not that the hammock was the waste, but rather that the rest of his life outside of being still had been a waste.  I kinda related to this as I laid there, […]

Raleigh Times With Shawn

Friday, 12 August 2016 by childofGod778

This was actually from a few weeks ago, but I wanted to share the goodness when I could.  My best friend Shawn came into town, and we went down to my sister and brother-in-law’s house down in Raleigh.  They took us out on the town to play arcades, enjoy the fun of the town, and […]

My Lucky Day

Friday, 5 August 2016 by childofGod778

Not every day do you come across a four-leafed clover.  But this isn’t what made this day so great in itself.  It was a day that I got to spend playing in the park with my kiddos; and while we were frolicking through the field, I came across this clover that just signified how lucky […]

Birthday Flowers

Friday, 29 July 2016 by childofGod778

I mean, if you’re gonna go all out for flowers for your mom, you might as well give her a whole flower setup, right?!  So that’s exactly what I did! I went to the store, got all kinds of flowers, and flower pots; painted them, arrayed them in this staggered fashion (it’s easy once you […]
