Chapter 99: Now We’re Cookin’!

Current Location: St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. We’re slowly circumnavigating this small island, moving from one beautiful beach to the next. Almost all of the island is part of the U.S. National Park System, so it’s great for… Continue Reading →

Chapter 88: The One With the Lightning Rod

When our son was little, he love a show called “Rescue Heroes”. He watched all the videos over and over and had all the toys and gear. We spend endless hours playing Rescue Heroes. His favorite episode was called “Electrical… Continue Reading →
