Did a Spartan Race today with: Lacie, Loretta, Sarah, Alphonse, Hollie, and Junior. It was a blast and we all had a good time. We decided to stick together in the race so I stayed back with the girls to help them get past the obstacles, especially the high walls.Continue reading
We just wrapped up a 4-day camping trip to Cape Kiwanda in Pacific City. We met Rocky and Harmony and their kids there so that was fun to camp together. The park we stay at is across the road from the beach, so it’s a great spot.Continue reading
Had a wonderful date with Emma Grace tonight. Back when she was six I promised I’d take her to Portland City Grill when she was eight. She turns nine next week so I was running out of time to make good on my promise!Continue reading
We took a week-long vacation to Tamarack this winter and had so much fun. My sister works at the resort there so we got to hang out with her, so that was cool. Plus, our friends Mikael and Hannah came out for a few nights and stayed at the chalet with us so that was fun too. I blogged a little about each day below.Continue reading
After living out of our motorhome for the last 4 months Lacie and I were both ready to be in a house again and back to a normal schedule. And today we’re much closer to that becoming reality.Continue reading
At lunch today Lacie asked if I wanted to just take the rest the day off and go for a hike since it was nice and supposed to rain tomorrow. I said yes so we packed up and drive to Wychus Creek Overlook Trail.Continue reading
Today Lacie and I made the final trip to our Venersborg house to finish cleaning out my office and to sign the papers to sell the home. We bought this home in May 2017 for $350,000. And today we sold it for $444,000. So not a bad gain in just 3 years.Continue reading
Last night I decided to go for a hike around Battle Ground Lake. During my walk I scouted out the RV sites. I found a couple open ones and then called Lacie to see if she wanted to take the RV out and go camping!
She said yes. So I drove to town to get some food and snacks for the kids and then went home and helped her load up the motorhome. We got there just before dark and set up camp. The kids loved it!Continue reading
We decided to convert our garage into a playroom. And it turned out great! We also finished the laundry room and built a little home gym too.
Since I had to work, Lacie did most of the work with her Dad. But I got to help install some of the wood panel walls, which was fun. It’s nice to have some extra room for the kids to play in and a gym for me to workout in now!Continue reading
