We’re Both Still Growing Up

There are eight traffic lights separating the short driveway in front of our home and our grade school’s two separate parent drop-off zones. Pushing back from the gate by 7:46 A.M. affords us the time to justmiss a few of them. We’ve got to be reversing out of the driveway […]

A Mom, Her Daughter and a Blue Butterfly Kite on Memorial Day 2015

Warm air, cool breezes, a picnic blanket, and a visit from the ice cream truck helped to make our 2015 Memorial Day a super memorable one. Mouse helped as best she could to get the kite off the ground, but let’s not talk about those repeated plummets to the green […]

Travel The Great American Road Trip

The Great American Road Trip

I’m so very fortunate. For damn near the whole of a month, I’ll be exploring this great country with my wife and two daughters in a sweet 2015 Shoreline Blue Toyota Sienna LTD Premium. It’s an appropriately spacious vehicle for which to traverse a big ol’ land as a family. […]

A History of Radness and the Future of Music on TV

If I was buying stock in one TV show for kids, it’d be this one, A History of Radness. And not only because the one kid is wearing a KEXP shirt, or because Henry Rollins is in it. You know, maybe kids can still grow up to understand that bands […]

Michelin First Car Moment

This post is about cars but it’s also about photos; those we have, those we don’t, and those we’ll see in our mind’s eye until the end of days. A photogenic memory isn’t something I could legitimately claim to have. I’d be found out the minute someone asked me to […]

Live From Camp Invention 2015!

By the end of day one, they were The Trio. Eight hours prior, they’d never met and now they had a moniker. A start-up worth investing in. A pinky promise. This is the power of summer camp, of shared experiences. This is the promise of curious minds melding together over […]

Summer Grilling With The Family

The scene nearly paints itself. The once-cold steel of a grill that now blisters with energy, the billowing smoke from the hot hot heat, the shimmering water undulating in the distance, the squeals of delight emanating from children who scamper in every direction, the rippling stars & stripes staked along […]

I Believe That We Will Win But I Am Losing
