09-15-2014 Relaxing Weekend

Dear Joseph and Lucia,

10580841_10201800963585017_5186959180325368489_oThis was a good weekend.  On Saturday night, we finally got to see our new hot tub disco light in action.  It’s solar powered and comes on automatically at dusk.  We purchased it a few months ago but haven’t been out at night when it turns on to see it.  I took a time lapsed photo that came out pretty cool looking.  Next weekend, I’ll remember to take my tripod with me to get a more stable shot.

It was delicious.  We looked like prunes by the time we finally came out of the hot tub.

On my way home last night, I caught a really nice photograph of the sunset at a rest stop in Oklahoma. (That’s the one at the top)

I hope to share all this with you guys one day. I find it’s important to find time to slow down and relax.  It was a joy to cook a gourmet meal from scratch, but it was even better floating and nibbling on it. And as always, it’s all here waiting for you. Never be afraid to leave a comment.  I’ll get it instantly on my phone.

Love,
Dad
