1000 Eyes in the Dark & Other Silly Things

Alrighty, let's get to it!

We got new phones.  Finally!  As much as I enjoyed the old iPhone 4 (when I first got it), its temperamental behavior and self-inflicted screen cracks had me a bit concerned.  Not to mention that pesky power button that only worked up until the warranty was out.  (cringe)

Now I'm the proud owner of a Samsung Galaxy S5.  It's screen is much larger than the iPhone 4, to be sure.  Funny thing, now that I've had it a while, it doesn't seem all that big!  haha!  Maybe I should've gone for the Mega!  Hmph...  Maybe next time.

So, what was the first thing I did with the GS5?  Well, make a video of course!
And here it is, the first vid taken with my phone.  Maybe someday I'll figure out all the features the phone has and make something truly grand.  (^.~)d


Time for Adventure--Back to Nature

Recent whirlwind events of late have created a need for escape.  You know what I mean.  The road trip type of escape.  Just a little adventure, an experience separate from the normal routine.  

Sadly, we weren't able to take a long road journey.  It's been a while since we could do such a thing.  Even so, we have skills.  Adventure creating skills.

Just around the corner we went, and visited Bob Woodruff Park in Plano, Texas.  

The two little kiddos tagged along, though they questioned the whole excursion.  After all, scary things could happen on that nature trail!  haha!  They're probably right, I suppose.  Danger could be lurking, after all.  But what fun would it be were we to fear that unknown around the bend?  

And do you know, those kiddos can't wait to go back!  

Enjoy the journey~~

Lost in Dallas & Over 1400 Grads

I'm attempting to write this post on a Samsung Galaxy S5, so please bear with me.  Ha!  Speaking of which, the Blogger app for Android is pretty much, well, horrendous.  Thus, I've gone straight to the Chrome browser.  We'll see how it goes.

On to the vid!

It wasn't too long ago (last Friday, to be exact) that we made a trip to the Big D.  We got lost en route to our final destination, of course, but what sort of adventure would it be without poor navigation on my part!  Just sayin'.

The purpose of our journey, to attend the high school graduation of our eldest daughter.  What a sight it was!  Probably one of the largest graduating classes of its kind in the state of Texas (or maybe anywhere).  The ceremony itself was indeed a long one, as each student's name was called. More than 1,400 of them.  Still, it was quite an honor to watch each of them walk.  What an amazing group of kiddos!  A memorable night, indeed.

When all was done, back to the road and to a path unknown.  Like I said, getting lost is just part of the fun! ;)

Congratulations, Class of 2014!

FitVlog #14 Exercise is a Walk in the Park

At last, I got to swim!

Pretty much, I live to swim in the summer.  This year, the pool was ready early, so I'm getting a head start.

You'll see me giving the pool a little cleaning in the vid.  You'll also see little tidbits from a long morning walk.  Complete with pics of the park and some ducks!  Baby ducks!  Who can resist?  haha!

In effort to start off the week on a good foot, to head off some of the impending stress and that sort of thing, I crammed in lots of fun activities into a very short time.  Mostly swimming.  And a touch of lawn mowing.  Some walking.  And general goofing off.  Busy, but enjoyable.  The whole lot!

It's important to keep moving.  What good is it, though, if you're not having any fun?  So every now and again, I'll take a break from the scheduled programs, and just dance!

Take care out there!
