Two Towers

Two Towers

The Pits: Came across several bitter reminders of the 9/11 attacks. The Peaks: I had a nice dinner while the boys filled out a conversation-starting questionaire I found online. Turner wrote down their answers while Weston lined up his cars. While reviewing Turner’s geography homework, Traci read the definition, “An area of land that fills… Read more »

NRC Canoe Trip

NRC Canoe Trip

The Pits: The water was up so high that we didn’t get to take many river-side stops. The whole trip went pretty quickly. The Peaks: We met up with James and the NRC at River Rats to enjoy an afternoon float down Duck River. It was a nice day and we had a good time…. Read more »

Fever Chills

Fever Chills

The Pits: Weston was running a fever and having chills. We’d planned to go to the Vandy game, but this kinda hijacked our plans. The Peaks: The boys had their first flag football win against the Giants, 28-6. Weston had a “pick six”, but the points didn’t count because, at the time, the score was… Read more »

Sock Diversity

Sock Diversity

The Pits: Flag football practice ran late. The Peaks: Not sure why I felt compelled to post this pic on Instagram, but some of the comments were amusing. I left work in time to take the boys to flag practice, where they got to scrimmage with another team. It was nice weather and the boys… Read more »

New Generation of Inhalers

New Generation of Inhalers

The Pits: Traci took Weston to the doctor today because he’s been complaining of having trouble breathing recently. The doctor couldn’t find anything wrong and suggested we try out an inhaler, like we did with Turner. Turner has since stopped using the inhaler because he didn’t feel like he needed it anymore, so we hope… Read more »

Darken the Studio

The Pits: None, really. The Peaks: A lot of my work day was spent taking photos in the studio of Eric Darken’s percussion session.

Posers In The Sun With A Dog

Posers In The Sun With A Dog

The Pits: None, really. The Peaks: Nice family WITSWAD/PITSWAD while throwing football. The family lined up for a quick photo, and they struggled with the first attempt, but I found it much more interesting than the “better” pic. We let the boys stay up a little tonight to play video games. Weston played Forza 5… Read more »

Football-Watchin’ Weather

Football-Watchin’ Weather

The Pits: We went to Le Peep for breakfast, but by the time our food was finally served to us, it was more like brunch. We all agreed that blunch was a better word than brunch. The restaurant took half off our bill for our long wait, so that was nice. The Peaks: We made… Read more »

Emoji of Questionable Quality

Emoji of Questionable Quality

The Pits: The dynamic of a family becomes evident when there is screaming, yelling, crying, hitting, kicking, and spanking, all between church and lunch, and still being able to sit down and have a pleasant meal together. The Peaks: Our afternoon was spent cleaning house, resting, and playing football. Turner and I took Trek for… Read more »

In the Middle with VU

In the Middle with VU

The Pits: Had to replace the electric igniter for our grill, which was more a nuisance than it should’ve been. Removed Instagram from Turner’s phone when it wasn’t even installed for 24 hours, then removed his phone from his possession. He’s been rather selfish and aggravating lately and we’re positive that the phone is not… Read more »
