Backyard BBQ
backyard BBQ at our friends' house. we always get together for dinner every sunday, today though the men were brewing beer and invited several other people and their toddler children. it was crazy, but i think our little man enjoyed being the oldest kid there.

First #climbingwall attempt in many years
my nephew had his seventh birthday at a local climbing gym. i used to facilitate a climbing wall and ropes course years ago at a summer camp. i was in my element atop that wall and helping kids face their fears. and here i am at least twelve years later facing a climbing wall again. i made the attempt to climb this wall....making it about 3/4 of the way up before my sluggish body gave up.
