5k Race - Dash for the Splash

This past weekend we had a chance to run in the Dash for the Splash 5k race down in Branson, MO.
It was a great time getting to run with my roommate from college, Shauna Perkins.
You dont get to know our times...... 

Nate and I after the race, I was pretty whipped!

With Shauna, she ran like a machine (put me to shame... sadness).

Hamilton Pool

We had a chance to go to Hamilton Pool near Austin, Texas several weeks ago. It was great spending time with Nate's parents and enjoying the beautiful Texas countryside.

Hamilton Pool, crazy cool rock formation!

Sarah has been making bags out of the core of our retired climbing ropes. She's made enough of them that we have decided to sell them. If your interested email her at

So in our adventures in Texas we have seen some impressive little critters and we decided to share them with the world.

These little guys were stalking each other and fighting, it was pretty awesome.

As they stalked each other, we stalked them.
"Anole Lizards"


I've never seen a black grasshopper, have you? (He looks evil)
"Eastern Lubber Grasshopper Nymph"

This dude is huge, Nate found him after it fell out of a tree. (too fat to hold on?)

Sarah playing with the lizards.

So we looked him up and this is the caterpillar of the Polyphemus Moth (6 inch wingspan)

Mr. Polyphemus.
