I was saddened to hear that Uncle Steve (pictured next to me) was experiencing some heart trouble today and had to go to the hospital in an ambulance. I can remember as a kid watching him pitch at the ballfields in Eaton Rapids and occasionally he had to stop and take a rest because of his heart. I always enjoy talking with Steve when we come to visit Eaton Rapids. He is always very inquisitive as to what I am up to and asks questions until he understands every aspect of the subject at hand. I know that he usually has all the angles figured out.
On this day in late October of 2003, we went and visited D.C. with them while they were visiting Laura. I remember walking a lot, as we went from the Air and Space Museum to the Natural History Museum and down past the Washington Monument, the White House, the Vietnam Memorial, and finally down to the Lincoln Memorial. Our feet ached at the end of that day.
I wish you and your family the best, Steve. Recover soon.
Here are a few photos from our trip to Glacier National Park this summer. Megan and I had an awesome adventure as we drove across the country together!

Space is big. Really big. It’s hard to wrap your head around the size and scope of it. And then I see models like this:

This picture makes me feel small. Small in a good way though. It lifts my eyes and my thoughts from the terrestrial day-to-day of life to grander themes of life and meaning. We are so small and relatively insignificant in this universe. It makes me really appreciate everything that I have. I feel a warm bond with my friends and family thinking about this. I am grateful and humbled.
Much like Franklin D. Roosevelt, we are offering you a New Deal to end your theoretical Great Depression over not knowing what we are doing this very second. It’s a one-stop shop for all the information you want about us and then some. We will try to avoid the mundane. I will probably be mildly humourous. Jen will be detailed and keep the pictures flowing. Overall, you should gain an understanding of what we are about. So enjoy the New Deal. It won’t change your life as much as rural electrification did, but at least enjoy the show.
