Gender Reveal & Playground! (Pics & Vids)

Hey Everyone!

We had a pretty exciting weekend, with a lot going on. I’m proud to say that I took pictures and videos of all of it. Go me! Saturday morning my wife’s went out of town with friends and I took Everett to my brother and sister in-law’s gender reveal. They were announcing the gender of their second child, they already have one girl. It was out at a hunting camp in the woods. Here is Everett holding a pink balloon, I guess we know what his guess was! 😀 (Sorry it is a little blury but he was on the move)


Everett and his cousin Rory played on the floor while we waited for everyone else to arrive and eat.


Here is my brother holding Everett.


This one is a funny comparison. Everett, Rory and Pepper the 2 year old Great Dane haha 😀 😀 (Both of their Great Danes were there but I only caught the one)


On to the more exciting stuff! Here is the box my brother made to reveal the gender. Inside of this box was Tannerite, and on top of the Tannerite was a bag of colored powder. My brother’s goal was to shoot the Tannerite through the box and have it explode the color all over the place. (For those of you unaware of what Tannerite is you will soon find out.)


Here is the video I took. ( I set my phone on a chair and backed up haha, I wasn’t that close) (SOUND ON)

By now you know they are having another girl haha. Here are a few pictures I took after the reveal.




We set Rory up on the stump, she’s a cutie!


We finished the afternoon up there and had a relaxing evening at home, once my wife was back.

Sunday started like any other, lazy and sleepy. I was trying to get a few games in, before Everett woke from his nap but that didn’t last too long.


My wife had him downstairs after that and she sent me this picture haha, that hairdo! 😀



It was nearing 3:30pm and we were experiencing some cabin fever, so we decided to take a walk. It was about 43 degrees F, but the sun was shining.


We were going to walk our normal distance, but liked being out in the fresh air after being cooped up all winter. We took Everett, and our dog, about a mile down the road to the local playground. This was his first time at a play ground. He was able to enjoy his first time on a swing. 😀


This, of course, followed by his first time on a slide! 😀


He did enjoy both, but wasn’t sure what was going on at first. We had successfully had a play date at the playground!


About half way home again the poor little guy was all tuckerd out!


We stopped and saw my parents on the way home, since they live a city block away from us, and headed home. We had some home made burgers and beans for dinner and watched a little March Madness before going to bed. Overall it was a very pleasant weekend. We can’t wait to get outside with him more now that he is a little bigger.

That is all for me, I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀



Weekend Trek & Minecraft

Good Monday Afternoon!

I have my Pandora station set to Linkin Park, and I’m ready to go.

Friday evening I played two games of softball for the co-ed end season tournament. Again as a fill in for my brothers team I don’t have to do much. They had me extra hit, since I know how to. I generally hit in the 4 hole or 5 hole depending on what team I’m on. This is a spot for power hitters, and I guess that is what I am. I use that DeMarini 30oz monster bat, and hit the sh*t out of the ball. I don’t really spend time on ball placement. I generally hit to the left side as I am right handed. My main goal is to first make contact, then hit it very hard. This works out most times. I have a pretty good swing and on top of that I do a quick hop step and put my body behind the swing. Anyway we won both games. It started to pour in between games though and the second game was a muddy mess. I let the guy in charge know that I wouldn’t be there the rest of the tournament. I had decided that since they were only going to EH me that my time would be better spent going back with my wife to her families place.

Saturday she had a photo shoot planned with a friend of hers from grad school. We wanted to go to Butter Milk falls in Erie, PA. The only thing was, none of us knew where it was. There isn’t a path or trail to it so we had to kind of wing it. We went to Asbury Woods and got on a trail that would get us close. We had to walk up the creek bed quite a ways to get to the falls. We had a drone two cameras and a client with us so that was interesting. She was a great sport and everything did go smoothly. I would have pictures but my wife hasn’t had a chance to edit them yet. If you do want to see some of her photography check it out here: . It took longer than she expected and were didn’t get to any other spots, but we had plenty of good pictures to use. When we got back we got some ice cream and headed back to my wife’s grandparents house.

We finished out the night watching some of the Olympic games. The next day we got up and headed to my brother in-laws baby gender reveal. They had it in a barn down the road. They had balloons in box and opened it to reveal that they are having a …………………….





Boy! haha

She was expecting a girl and was pleasantly surprised when she found out that it was a boy. Up until that point they both didn’t know the gender. It was revealed to her mother and then they set this all up.

As for the Minecraft update. I have been doing work! I expanded my horse stalls and doubled the size of my house. I made a tiered fireplace, made a village, and spruced up my garden:



That’s all for now!

I have a few PCs to set up, I’ll see you all tomorrow! 😀 😀
