This is the longest I let my quarantine beard grow before it got too annoying and I decided to cut it all off:

Stream Camping with Friends

Filed under: — Andy @ 7:51 pm

One of the best things to do to get out of the house and stay away from most people is to go camping. We were joined by some neighbors and school friends of Melina, and went to a campsite in Tanzawa where there is a cold but really nice stream the kids could play in and catch all sorts of things. As one day didnt seem to be enough for the kids to really enjoy the stream we went for a three day two night trip. The kids had lots of fun playing in the stream, catching bugs and frogs and other things, making the campfires, helping with cooking, and smores and fireworks at night. The adults had fun with the exact same things. On the way back home we stopped and did some trout fishing and eating.

New Bug Net Hiking

Filed under: — Andy @ 8:00 pm

Melina wanted a bug net to help her catch even more bugs. So after getting one we went for a small hike in the mountains to see what kinds of bugs we can catch.


A nice dragonfly.


I guess it can also be used to catch fish.
