Well Sunday January 6th 2013 was our middle boy’s, Alex, 8th Birthday. We went to a local park here in the city, one of the nicer ones….lol. Anywho, we were trying to beat the rain. We had mountains as a backdrop and you could watch the system come over the mountain. So as we were racing the clock, we sat down to pizza, birthday cake and cupcakes for lunch. We kicked a ball around for a short time and let the kids play, but very soon the rain came. It also turn colder, but that didn’t dampen our spirits. We let the kids continue to play under the pavillion roof, which was good sized as there were 8 tables underneath it. So while the kids played, our buddy got out a bag of BBQ briskettes and we decided to like a fire, not to cook, but to stay warm. So one thing led to another and with the help of the kids finding sticks and bark, we had a rocking and rolling fire going. It was going so good that not even the rain could put it out…lol. We sat on two benches just 2-3 feet away from the fire and we were all able to stay warm. We threw in the last of the sticks to burn them off and a short time later when the fire died down, all was left was a huge bed of burning red hot coals. You could still feel the heat about 4-5 over the coals. So when it was time to leave we went ahead and wet down the coals to be on the safe side.

Our Day Out

Well as promised heres about our day out on Friday.

Our good friend Big Mike came over to take us out to a lil known spot up in Cajon Pass in San Bernardino. It had a nice little free flowing stream coming down out of the mountains. It was a very scenic spot if you ask me. Just the right mixture of desert, greenery, mountains and nature. So we pulled off to the side of the road and we let the kids play in the stream, which we found at its deepest was less than 18″.

Well I happened to hear a familiar sound. The whining of diesel locomotives. So I walked just up the short hill to catch a glimpse of it.

So after I could not see much of the trains, I turned my attention back to nature, and the kids…lol

We found this but not sure if its a shell of some kind or rock. But it was neat looking and took it home with us.

So this was our day. Letting the kids play in the stream, hiking up the stream a bit and just relaxing and enjoying the sun, water and nature. We are already planning to take the other two boys up there as they were in school during the time we were out. We are wanting to spend all day out there and have a picnik. But next time bring suntan lotion…lol

Also me and Big Mike are planning a day hiking trek there and further up the stream as well as do some exploring. Hoping to find other spots to take the bunch to. So stay tuned for further updates on our future adventues.

Coming up in the next month or so, we are planning a camping trip to the nearby lake where we were so also stay tuned for updates on that as well.

All in all we had a fantastic day. For me it felt good to get out of the house and experience the outdoors again without having to go to a doctors appointment. And it helped with my depression and it helped my soul. So I am eager to get back out again.

Till next time,

4th Of July!!

First off, hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July.

Today was the best day that I’ve had in a very long time. A very good buddy of ours was here to share it with us. The kids got to play in the water and sprinkler for most of the day as us adults sat out with them and grilled hotdogs and polish sausages. Had a good lunch and we let the kids play some more.

As it got dark, we watched others set off their fireworks, though most people around here had illegal ones…lol. then the kids wanted us to set off our own. Ones we got from a firework stand…lol. So we lit them off and the kids a great time watching them and laughing and having a grand ole time. Afterwards, the kids wanted to run around so we let them race each other to run off excess energy.

Also tomorrow is the first day of school for our 4th and 2nd grader and for our youngest daughter, its her very first day of school in Kindergarten. Mommy and daddy gonna be sad…lol, but I’ll tell y’all about how it goes in tomorrows post.

A good time was had by all, we all enjoyed getting out and enjoying the fresh air, sun, watching the kids play, sharing stories and having a good laugh with a good friend.

Happy 4th y’all and we’ll do this again next year.

Till next time, have a good’n
