Time Capsule October 2001 - Young Adult Retreat

 Here is one of the first pictures that Kim and I have together. Scott Ficker was the Youth Director at CBSR. He organized a retreat for the young adults to Deception Pass. Later on, Kim used this picture to make a present for me. She sent it to Jones Soda and had it put onto a case of Soda with a personalized note on each of the bottles. It was a really cool present. Posted by Picasa

The Windy City (and no, its not Chicago)

We had a wind storm blow through the Puget Sound yesterday. It proved to be quite an experience. Saturday morning about 4am Kim and I woke up with a start. There was a huge crashing sound like thunder, but the loudest thunder I had ever heard. It had been blowing all night long and we figured that a thunderstorm had rolled in. The previous evening Kim and I said that if we didn't have electricity in the morning we would treat each other to breakfast at IHOP. About 8 we got up and showered without power. Then drove down to the SuperMall for breakfast. However, as we were leaving the house I noticed that there was a tree missing from our front yard. We drove over and checked it out. One of our smaller trees beside the road had blown over, crushing the fence. The root system had pulled totally out of the ground. Wow! We than proceded down for a wonderful breakfast of Pancakes, and a crab and shrimp omlette. Yum!
