Thoughts on “Life in a Day” One Year Later

My family and I recently went to the big screen premiere of Life in a Day. Since a clip of mine, of my younger daughter Teagan, made it into the film, my whole family has been emotionally vested in the film. Yet, to be completely honest, I would have loved the film anyway. It’s shockingly […]

Making Our Zipline Zippier

We have an approximately 70 foot zipline in our yard that we’ve been playing with a lot lately.  To make it even more fun, we’ve recently added a ramp at the far end and a step at the beginning plus platforms at both ends, handles to climb up onto the first platform, and a fishing […]

Prickly Pear BBQ Sauce

Due to popular demand from my “Enchilada Casserole” post, here is my Vegan-Friendly Prickly Pear Barbeque Sauce recipe. Once I realized that we were going to be able to get a large harvest of prickly pear fruit this past summer, I started reading up on various things people do with prickly pear fruit. Other than […]
