Jack in the Park

On January 30 Johnny dropped Jack off at my house on his way to work. We went to the skate park, two playgrounds, a bike ride, lunch at Rocket Dog, and ice cream at Scoop's

Jack vs. the Giant Marshmallow

A number of years ago Mikie and I experimented with "roasting" marshmallows in the microwave. Placed on a plate and zapped for ten to fifteen seconds, a marshmallow would puff up to the size of a tennis ball. When taken out, it would deflate down to a little bigger than normal. They were warm and soft, although they lacked the traditional charcoal-flavored outer crust. When a camping trip in February had to be cancelled due to rain, I decided to make 'Smores in the microwave, using extra large marshmallows. These items had a mind of their own. They got real big, did not deflate, and were a challenge to eat.

Lost Lake

To make up for the rained out camping trip we hiked, played and picnicked at Lost Lake
