Check Your Vehicle Before A Long Trip

dad6

It is very important that you take the time to conduct a vehicle check before you take a road trip with your family.  It would be horrible to be stranded on the side of the road when you could've prevented that if you would have taken the time to inspect your vehicle before making your trip. I know everyone is low on time, but a vehicle inspection takes a lot less time than waiting for a tow truck or hanging around a mechanic shop in the middle … [Read more...]

Are You Prepared to Defend Yourself?

IMG_2224

April of 2012 my wife had an involuntary extensive knee surgery where they broke the top part of the tibia and shifted it down a couple centimeters and reattached it with 3 screws.  Over the 6 weeks while the bone healed she lost simple motor skills of her leg.  Over the last year and a half she has been exercising and strengthening her leg.  She has made excellent progress, but she is unable to run.  Since my wife is unable to run she is very … [Read more...]

East Texas Whitetail Buck Mount

IMG_2205

Last December I shot an East Texas Whitetail Buck and decided to mount him for our game room.  A couple weeks ago I received a call from Magnolia Taxidermist, letting us know that our Whitetail Buck mount was ready to pick up.  I have to say he did a great job and it looks really good in our game room. Granted it is not a giant White Tail mount, nothing like a South Texas Whitetail or a Whitetail shot in a high fence, but that is ok because he … [Read more...]

Doe With 2 Fawns In The Sub-Burbs

IMG_1710

We live in a well developed sub-burb outside a large city in Texas.  There is road construction in a wooded area about a quarter mile from from our house.  Over the last couple weeks I have seen a doe with a fawn in a nearby park and grazing along the side of a busy road in the middle of the day.  I have always wanted to setup a deer feeder right behind the house to try to draw the deer in the area in to watch of an evening, but they did not … [Read more...]

Horseback Riding Lessons

IMG_1124

My youngest loves animals.  Just before the 2013 Houston Rodeo, we decided to put him in horseback riding lessons.  He loves to ride horses.  We can even use the horseback riding lessons as leverage to motivate him to get his homework done.  Initially he started riding a horse named Hershey.  Hershey is about 16 years old and moves a little slow.  After about the first month he asked if the trainer had a faster horse.  The trainer put him on a … [Read more...]

Reasons For A New York Family Summer Vacation

bronx

New York City is a great place to visit, even in the summer. Almost every weekend there are street fairs where entire blocks are shut down to traffic. Boat tours on the scenic Hudson river or visiting the Bronx Zoo or the Botanical Gardens or even just strolling along in Central Park (they have a zoo for the children as well!). But there is a whole lot more to New York then just New York City! Rent a car and drive up Route 9 stopping to browse … [Read more...]
