Last week we made our biannual trip to Colorado. It was a good trip; my grandma is doing much better and we got to have some nice cabin days. I also learned that it takes 4 cans of John Deere Green to paint a fence. There's a deer in the pic at left if you click on it to get the full res version.
On our way home we stopped by Zion. Those canyons are pretty breathtaking. We did some nice hikes, ate at the same restaurant where my sister spilled her milk twice 20 years ago, and enjoyed the beautiful scenery.
On the night of the Deathly Hallows release, my dad and I made the midnight trek to the local B&N. While it was pretty crazy, I think it's safe to say that we're a lot worse in California. Those darn Californians. I finished the book on the way home, and it is very safe to say that it is by far the best Harry Potter out of the series. Very well thought out, well written, and an awesome ending.
For all you band folk out there (I don't know why I post this stuff since the people who deign to read this know what's going on anyway, but whatever):
- Freshman Band Camp: Friday, August 3 from 8am-12pm. Only freshmen. So if you're reading this, don't come.
- BBQ/Info Night: Saturday, August 4 at 4pm. Be there.
- Band Camp: August 6-10 from 8am-4pm. Be there.
I came across this video the other day. While it's not really a "feel good" video, it is definitely thought provoking about the direction the world is heading.
This is one of the more interesting finds I've seen in a while. I think it's supposed to be sort of a game. To be quite honest, it is quite entertaining and pretty funny.
That's it for now...I'm gonna go try to enjoy what's left of my summer.
