Homecoming 2013

Danny and Devin ventured out this evening to homecoming at the Melbourne Auditorium.

It was an extra special night for both of them, as it was Danny’s last homecoming (being a senior), and it was Devin’s time to shine after having been voted the Sophomore Class Homecoming Queen! Congrats to both of you.

Derek turns 12

Happy Birthday Derek!

We celebrated Derek’s birthday a little early this year so Devin could be a part of it before leaving for New York.

Sorry for the bad photo, the elusive ‘Derek’ moves around so much his species is very difficult to photograph.

2012 Tiger 800 XC

P6290226

Lisa and I headed over to Tampa to pick up a used Tiger 800 XC today. It was raining off and on, but cleared up for the test drive. The bike looked good, so we loaded it up in the back of the pickup and headed back. When we got home we had lots of help unloading it. Devin was tasked with taking photos.

South Carolina Vacation

P6120175sm

Just got back from Lake Murray South Carolina. The area has some really interesting history which you can see in the Link above. The lake itself is a reservoir and is approximately 50,000 acres in size with over 500 miles of shoreline.

The house we stayed at was up near the West end of the lake and was really nice, with a very big yard and great access and views to the water. Kids had plenty to do, and was nice and quiet for everyone else.

Harley Rental

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I rented a Harley-Davidson Road Glide Ultra this weekend and Derek and I took it for a trip over to Disney. The plan was to stop in a Fort Wilderness to see if it was possible to just drive up and reserve a campsite with first making a reservation. We weren’t going to camp, just wanted to see if it was possible.

We left super early and took some back nice back roads to get there. But when we pulled into the camping area there was a line at the check-in station so we decided not to stop. Instead we went down the road and checked out the Disney’s Osprey Ridge Gold Course since it was right next door, and seemed like a good place to stretch our legs and get ready for the trip back.

The GPS was giving me a hard time, so for some reason I decided to take 192 back through Kissimmee — what a HUGE mistake that was! It was wall to wall traffic, HOT, and we caught every one of the 500 traffic lights. Made it back ok though.
