Hey all,

Had a couple of articles published this week that I thought you might want to read:

My article, “Whatever I Want” just posted at “You & Me” Magazine:

My article. “Why do we hate Adam & Steve” was just published in Bible Advocate. You can read it online if you like (pg 14).  Be warned, it’s easily the most controversial piece I’ve written.

Here’s the link:

Hey all,

For those of you who knew the wonder-dog, I wanted to let you know that the tribute I wrote for him has been published by, “The Bark.”

Beach Day!



So, along with the rest of the free world, the girls and I went to the beach yesterday.

This was Gracie’s first “real” trip to the coast. She was still in bread-loaf mode the last time we went, and this time she actually got to run around and play.

We found a great beach just north of Pacific City where we could actually drive right down onto the beach (though we might have left a fair portion of our undercarriage on the “road” down!)


Whipped up some mushroom swiss burgers on the grill-to-go, broke out the camp chairs and basked in the sun.


The consensus…the pickle loves the beach. Like Mommy, she’s apparently ½ mermaid, and can’t resist the call of the sea. The two of them played in the incoming tide most of the day, while daddy stayed on dry land and took pictures. (I dipped a toe in…BRRR!)

After a VERY quick trip through Tillamook Cheese Factory (with about ten zillion other people) we brought a very sleepy baby home.

More pics below.

Great day!

Spaghetti Night

Leave a comment

Hey all,

So, we introduced spaghetti and meat sauce last night.

Of course, Gracie loved it (she’s a Perkins, after all) and photo hilarity ensued…
