Berry Bend Campfire

We cheated on the fire. We didn’t want to spend a lot of time and energy gathering and cutting wood, so we bought some logs for $4 and I split them. We did light the fire backpacking style using cotton… Continue Reading →

Camping at Berry Bend

This weekend we tried out our backpacking gear. Friday evening we took Alek, Katie, Emilie and Malaki to Kansas City for Happening. We needed to be on hand to collect them again Sunday afternoon, so we left Lanie in the… Continue Reading →

Oh noes…

Getzger Cat realizes that the pictures of him sitting on the bed yesterday might end up on Facebook.

Oh Getzger!

“Oh Getzger!” That’s a fairly frequent exclamation here.

Kayaking and Fishing on Stockton Lake

We decided to make the most of the nice weather and packed the van the previous night, got up extra early and loaded the Kayaks on the van before the school run. We were on the lake by 9.30am. We… Continue Reading →

A couple of days break. With Mick heading back to the UK, we had a couple of days leisure time before we had to collect the girls at St Louis and then get ready to start back on the school… Continue Reading →

A fairly scrawny looking deer, but it didn’t appear to be at all put-out by us watching it for a while.

Prairie Flowers at the Springfield Nature Conservation Center

Despite the horrid heat, today we took Mick on a walk around the nature center. He enjoyed the birds, and we spent a long time watching a totally oblivious Muskrat foraging for food. One day I’ll get round to uploading… Continue Reading →

Getzger Cat finds watching TV tiring

Getzger, keen to be in on the action ousted Blue Kitty from her usual perch, made it his own, and enjoyed the experience in a way only Getzger can.

Sunset – Cedar Ridge, Stockton Lake, Missouri

Night fishing on Stockton Lake, Missouri

Friday night I had my first opportunity to try out night fishing. Tom invited me to go night fishing with him on Stockton Lake. Just before four pm we set off with Tom’s boat in tow for the fifty odd mile drive to Stockton.

Sunrise on Table Rock Lake
