2015 Expressway Jeep Jubilee

As a new Jeep owner, I’ve been looking for local events to take part in. Saturday October 3rd, 2015 there was a Jeep Jubilee at the Expressway dealership in Mt. Vernon, IN. I was able to attend, but was not in a position to be a part of the show. This didn’t stop me from taking some pictures of the many Jeeps that showed up!

I'd also like to mention the amazing Evansville Jeep club, Evansville Area Jeepers. This club showed up in full force, with a huge convoy rolling in from Evansville. Evansville Area Jeepers or EAJ, support the local community by taking part in fund raising events. The club helps with Toys for Tots and has a capable Crisis Response Team. If you are looking for a family friendly Jeep club and wonderful people to share Jeep stories with, be sure to check out EAJ at EVVJeep.com.

May Showers in June

Evansville weather has been positively unpredictable lately. The past 3 weeks have been filled with local weather people calling for rain, but it never shows up. If it does, it’s extremely spotty and actually never reaches my house. May 2015 weather for Southern Indiana has been very odd, to say the least. We haven’t even had any real thunderstorms, to speak of.

Yesterday, the predictions were right, we actually had a thunderstorm early in the morning. Although the storms passed, we did experience a great soaking rain for the better part of the day. It was mid afternoon before the sun actually poked it’s head out and made for a beautiful end to a day, albeit a little humid. I took the opportunity to play with our family’s new Canon Rebel, with some extremely amateur photos of our flowers below.

Emma’s Day At Mesker Park Zoo

Great guest post with pictures from the Mesker Park Zoo in Evansville, IN. Written by 7 year old Emma Davidson.

This is a blog post, with pictures and writing done by my 7 year old daughter Emma.  I am excited that this will be her very first blog post.  Through this process she has learned to add pictures, start a draft, and publish what she wrote on the internet.  She will also learn what 'publishing to the internet' means for her creations.  Again, everything below was written and pictures taken(and selected) by Emma.

This is the fastest turtle ever.  The turtle walked so fast in its pen! He looked like he was having fun. I think he wanted to race with a friend, I think he would win.

Fairytale Journeys By James Dezember

My family loves Disney Vacations. Whether we are traveling with family, planning a vacation with friends, or just want to get away by ourselves, Walt Disney World is always at the top of the list. But anytime we take that plunge and schedule that trip, I know it means we’ll have a few months of intense planning and preparation. A Disney vacation is unlike any other, so it requires careful attention to the details. That’s why I recommend using someone with experience to help plan your trip, to make sure your escape into the world of Disney vacationing is as magical as it can be.

I always default to my wife for the Disney knowledge, she thrives on ‘Walt Wisdom’ and digging up all the little secrets that help make a vacation memorable.  Why is all this information and wisdom important? Because the easiest part about a Disney trip is booking the vacation, the real time sieve comes when planning your schedule and without a schedule you are setting your vacation up to be less than magical.
