This is what we call the Muppet Show.......Beep.

Luke loves the Muppet Show. It is by far his favorite DVD to watch. He always dances to the theme song, but has begun to imitate Gonzo's trumpet note at the end of the song.

Bad Thunder Storm

It wasn't as bad has Hurricane Dolly that went through our prior home of Harlingen, TX, but we did have a really bad storm tonight. I was able to find hail as large as a silver dollar. By the way, our home in Texas came through the hurricane just find. As far as we know, the only damage was our fence in the backyard was partially blown down.

Trout Fishing

I recently had an opportunity to fish the East Branch of the Clarion River which is located in Elk County, Pennsylvania. We were in Johnsonburg, PA for Megan's family reunion, so I was able to break away for a few hours, strap on my waders, and get in the water to do some trout fishing. The river flows out from the East Branch Dam. The dam brings water from the bottom of the resevior, so this results in very cold water and consequently, great native trout populations. You can see this HERE. I was able to catch 5 native brook trout* including a fantastic 15-inch native brook trout, which is a very rare catch!

*no trout were harmed during the creation of this blog entry.

Grandparent visit

Our babysitter was in Australia for a week so Grandma and Grandpa Meier came down to watch Luke. They taught Luke how to bawk like a chicken and then Joe taught him how to flap his arms like chicken wings so now we have a chicken in out house!! We went for a drive of our land and out to dinner where Luke ate pickeled eggs :( #

Poopy head

We were outside today playing when Dad noticed something on Lukes head. It turns out a friendly bird thought Lukes head was a toilet!! We remedied the problem with a dunking. Joe would like to say he does not support this post as he also had a bird poop on his head as a child!! #

luke enjoying our land



We went to our property now that we officially own it and had a picnic. Luke enjoyed playing in the brush and sticks. It is weird to think that we own all the trees and weeds that we could see!!
