This is a 4.5 minute video I took with my iPhone4 last week when our family visited Disneyland in California, and stayed for the evening fireworks show. It was great!
It’s hard to beat open faced roast beef with brown gravy, cabbage and fried okra. Yum!
Next time you’re in Irving, Texas, be sure to stop by Mama’s Daughter’s Diner.
Thanks to Yelp for the recommendation!

I’ve published all the photos from the trip Sarah and I took to New Hampshire and Maine last week to a new Flickr collection.
I still have more videos to publish, but it’s good to have all the photos online. I’ve found if I don’t share photos fairly soon after a trip, lots of other things get my attention and it’s more challenging to do it later. Lots of GREAT memories were made on this trip. 🙂
We had a great time at Divine’s house for Thanksgiving this year!
We had some pretty good looking trick or treaters in our family this year! Rachel and I were in Manhattan, Kansas for Halloween. Shelly posted two photos of Sarah and Alexander in their costumes, so we were able to see them when we were in Kansas, even if we didn’t get to trick or treat together this year.
This video is an interview with Dr Brent Benkelman, as he supervised the final preparations of the 120th pig he’s cooked in his life. Brent co-hosts an annual pig roast potluck for friends in Manhattan, Kansas.
See more photos from my Flickr set of this weekend’s festivities, which included the disappointing loss of KSU to Nebraska. It was a great time of family fun, despite the football loss!
It was a treat to see this amazing sculpture exhibit of mustangs today in Las Colinas, Texas.
There is a similar sculpture in Oklahoma City down on the river near Bricktown. These are photos I took this summer on the river boat ride.
I’m not sure if the same artist is responsible for both, but they are both VERY impressive sculptures!
A few years ago Alexander flew with me to Washington DC, and we had a layover in Chicago. He saw Lake Michigan from the air for the first time then, but yesterday he saw it IN PERSON for the first time. Very impressive!
Rachel is with me (Dad) today at the University of North Texas, and among other things is going to teach my pre-service education students about AudioBoo. This was her practice “Hello” on AudioBoo this morning.
We’ve got some good dancers in our family! And some brave kids!
Check out lots more pics from Saturday’s fun at Frontier City’s “Fright Night” in this Flickr set. Also check out episode 5 of “The Zebra Print,” which Sarah and Rachel recorded LIVE from the top of the ferris wheel at Frontier City Saturday night!
What a great looking group of kids and wives this is! This photo was taken in July 2010 in Virginia.
Here’s our crew again, with dads this time, from August 2007 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Have these kids grown or what?!
Now let’s turn the clock back five years from today, to March 2005 in Monterey, California.
Now let’s go back NINE years, to January 2001 in Colorado Springs!
I don’t think I can go back further with digital photos unless I scan prints – I know I have a photo before kids… So when I find it in the garage I’ll add it here.
Just two more, and these are of the oldest daughters. First, March 2005:
Now, July 2010:
There are few blessings as wondrous as children and good friends. 🙂
Earlier this month my daughters and I spent a week in Manhattan, Kansas, and were able to watch part of the Mountain Sprout concert in the park on August 6th. This was some of the wildest fiddle playing I’d ever seen! These are certainly not “family values” themes, but the fiddle playing was extraordinary.
If you ever get a chance to hear these guys play in person, by all means don’t miss it. 🙂
