Lighthouse Paintball Outing

Every 6 months or so, I take the shop guys out to dinner, etc to get them away from business and in a casual setting for a little bit. The young guys have been begging to go paintballing, so I gave in and we went this Tuesday night. Wow was it fun!

Amber graciously brought in pizza for us to eat during a break.




The group--armed, loaded, and ready to go!




For some reason, the boss was the first one hit every game. I don't undertand why????? :)




The field of play. For some reason, everyone else would hide behind stuff, then I would get impatient, and start running all over the place. Maybe that was why I always got hit first.........

Quick video of the fun.

Model Airplane!!

After a 7 year hiatus, I am back in the model airplane business! I told Amber that once the boys got old enough to enjoy it, I would buy another plane. Poof! The boys are old enough. This one is electric instead of gas. No more stalling, greasy fuel, etc.

After my jog tonight, I noticed the wind was calm enough to fly, so we tried it out. My brother Matt is staying with us this week and is ready to get one himself. They are great fun, especially when thy go straight into the ground at 70 mph. Unfortunately this can happen, as everything that goes up, must come down....... :):)


Below are 2 videos of takeoff and a flyby. Pay no mind to the guy with the bald spot on the back of his head. Just don't look directly at it, and you won't be blinded........Oh well, less to comb, and less to cut.

Mommy, can we see God's face??

Spring has been good. Have to start this post with another Andrew classic. One day last week, he asked Amb "mommy, can we see God's face?". Amber told him "no, not here on earth we can't". He responds........ "but mom, what if He kneels down?"

Classic Andrew. Oh to have the innocence of a child...

My sister Jenni, and her "bosom friend" Janelle Hohulin Ebert visited Amber while Janelle was here from Phoenix. Being childhood next door neighbors and best friends, Janelle and Jenni were quite a funny duo. Many nights I was kept up listening to them giggle in the bedroom next to mine. Oh the memories.....

We hosted mothers day on the Grimm side at our house. Looks calm and peaceful, huh?

My brother Matt, and his friend Josh Robinson helped me set the dock one night last week. Now we just need some sand, and then the twins (and their mom) will go swimming. Until then, don't count on it. :):)

Cookin up a mess of mushrooms. Why is it when you have to work and get food from nature, that it always seems to taste better. I'm pretty sure if I would buy morel's at the grocery store and cook them, they wouldn't taste as good.....

The twins being the twins.

We are finally closing the "building and construction" phase of our house. Grass seed was planted 10 days ago, and we are getting the outside looking like a home. More pictures of the finished house are coming soon for those of you from out of the area....

This video is hilarious. If you want to see how Andrew gets hurt so often, just watch the very end. He always has things like this happen to him. Full speed ahead with no thought of consequences. Hope he learns how to slow down his throttle someday!

That is enough blogging for today.... Now it's time to get my brother Kieth married..... 3 more weeks!
