Before we travelled the world, we lived in Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA. It's a busy suburb of Washington D.C. and has been home for both of us for a long time. We shared tons of adventures friends and family, including demolition, biplane flights, rock shows, college graduations, birthday zoo visits and dental work! Check them out!

Jesse, Biff, Kyde and I went for biplane rides today. Kyde had the balls to make a bitchin' video of her ride!

This is an ArA show from 2005. The kid playing pocket pool is hilarious. Also, after we played our set Jesse and I were over on the merry-go-round (the show was at a park). Some kids were talking about the bands that played. One kid mentioned how ArA sucked and another was like "No, they were good." They went back and forth about it totally oblivious to the fact that a member of the band they were discussing was there on the merry-go-round with them. While this was going on a much younger kid came up to me and with an absolute look of terror in his eyes he whispers "They don't know who you are!" It was pretty much the funniest thing I have ever seen.

On Saturday, Kyde graduated! I'm super proud of her. It was also a really fun day in general.

There is nothing more I like than planning a good birthday party, even my own! This birthday celebration included having my guests complete a mall scavenger hunt to find the location of the party. This journey landed them at Build-A-Bear! All of us adults joined in with kids making bears, dogs, dinos and monkeys! This picture sums up all the fun! I also did so much hopping during the day that I got tendonitis in my ankles!!! OUCH!

Kyde's Dad worked on my tooth issue today. I have a tooth that has some decay issue above the gumline, apparently caused my trauma or something, who knows. Doc had to basically push my gums up to get under them to inspect what needed to be done to fix the tooth. After using a scalpel to push my gums up he drilled into the side of the tooth to look around. That part really wasn't all that bad but, even with all the anesthesia, I could still feel it a little bit, which indicated I'd be in need of a root canal we will have to do in a few weeks. He then drilled into the top of my tooth down to the root so he could put a little cotton ball in that had a medication that would basically kill the decay, so when the root canal is done I won't have as much pain to go through. That part was really horrid. Kyde held my hand and I sweated out about a gallon. It totally sucked. Here is a few pictures of what went down. The first one is just getting the shot, the second one is a pic of my gums flipped up... Kyde said she could see my jaw bone. The third and fourth are pictures of the stitches and there is a quick video of him stitching my mouth back together. Good times!
