On the way home after spending the weekend at Wesley Acres, everyone was pretty tired. Javen fell asleep almost immediately. That didn’t stop Eddie from jumping up on Javen’s lap so that he could look out the window better. Here is a picture to capture the event.

We took a few pictures when we went geocaching. You can check them out in our Photo Gallery. These were from our second day. We took some friends along with us as well.
Some pictures show the kids all soaking wet. They’re still smiling, though. I was really proud of everyone as they kept up a great attitude. We’re really looking forward to going back to find the cache as well as finding new and interesting places.
As Cindy said, we all really enjoyed the outing. It is rewarding in lots of ways:
- The thrill of the hunt
- The thrill of finding
- The thrill of driving
- The benefit of fresh air
- The community that seems to be behind
We did it! We are now official geocachers! Now you might ask, what is geocaching??? I’m not totally sure, but I’ll tell you about or experiences of yesterday and today. First let me lay the foundation to this whole process. Philip received a GPS from his brother, David. Philip went online and found a site that is devoted to geocaching. He set up a profile, logged on and received coordinates for hidden “treasures” around the Bradford area. We enter in the coordinates into the GPS and use it as a guide to find the hidden containers.
Yesterday we drove about 5 minutes to an area of Bradford we had never really explored. It was great being out in the country. The weather was beautiful!!! The lilacs were in full bloom and fragrance, and we were on a mission. Using the GPS is a bit tricky – knowing how to read and understand the numbers. We found our first container. It was cool reading the log book and finding out that the kid’s babysitter was the one to hide the cache (container). Anyway, we’re all hooked! On Saturday night I printed off 22 more caches to find in the area.
Many of you are aware that I am a pretty big Sens fan. I’m really excited that for the first time in their modern franchise history, they have only four more wins to capture the Stanley Cup. I’m pretty confident that they can accomplish this fairly easily against the Los Angeles (formerly Mighty) Ducks of Anaheim.
The media have given the Senators no respect this year entering any of their series. They said that Ottawa should be afraid of Pittsburgh’s young guns. Series over in 5 games. They said Ottawa should be afraid of the New Jersey defense. Series over in 5 games. They said Ottawa should be afraid of Buffalo’s depth. Again, the series was over in 5 games. Now they are saying Ottawa should be afraid of Anaheim’s defense and the fact they came out of the tougher Western Conference. I’m not afraid and from all the reports, it doesn’t look like the Senators are either.
This one starts with Dana Carvey, but features Steve Carel of “The Office”. Its not that I am that big on goalies, I just found these videos funny.
I realized I haven’t written anything in a while. I also realized we’ve had some big news from the family.
Daryl is getting married! He and Samantha will be married on July 21, 2007. We’re all excited about another trip to California. I bugged Daryl because I found out about the engagement first on Facebook. How millenial of him. 🙂 The picture is stolen from an Facebook album that they posted. I hope they don’t mind.
Today its official. I’m officially named the “Senior Director of Admissions & Marketing”. This is a dramatic move for me and one that I am quite excited about. Here is an excerpt from the memo:

- Alignment: Ensure that both functions are converged and aligned to support the enrollment strategy
- Messaging: Create and implement a common brand message focus that supports the enrollment strategy.
