Last weekend my family went out on our first back country camping trip. We had some friends that had an extra site booking so we went out to meet up with them. We loaded up the car, packed our packs, threw the little red wagon into the back of the car, and off we went! … Continue reading My First Experience with Back-Country Camping
With the movie now in the theaters I want to check it out. I also wanted to read the book first. Call me weird, but I like to read the book that the film is based on, even though it has driven me nuts in the past. Either way, it gave me a good excuse … Continue reading The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower Book 1
This past weekend we took a day trip through a few of the attractions in the Lethbridge area. We decided to take in both the Devil's Coulee Museum in Warner, and Writing on Stone Provincial Park. Our first stop was at the Devil's Coulee Dinosaur Museum in the village of Warner. This is … Continue reading A Wander Through Southern Alberta: Dinosaurs and Badlands
This summer we went on our longest camping trip as a family yet. We took two weeks and went out to the west coast. Outside of the first night's drive the trip was a lot of fun! We got to see some beautiful scenery, wildlife, and family members we haven't seen in years. The first … Continue reading Recapping B.C.

It's a great opportunity to look at something you might not normally pick up. The Cover The cover is imposing. Thanos is … Continue reading Thanos Returns! Thanos #1
Ok, I actually bought this a few months ago and am only getting to reviewing it now. But I had some really good DC titles to look at, and a course I had to complete for my job. Time to get this one off my to do list! The Cover The cover looks pretty good. … Continue reading Champions #4: Conflict!
This is the second prequel to DC's Metal event. It picks up right where the Forge left off, focusing on the same characters with cameos from several other prominent Justice League and Batman characters. The Cover The cover was done, like The Forge, by Jim Lee, Scott Williams, and Alex Sinclair. It carries a stronger … Continue reading Dark Days: The Casting
Earlier today I took my 3-year-old son to his first baseball game, also, I think the first I've ever been to. We took in an afternoon game between the Lethbridge Bulls and Medicine Hat Mavericks. Normally I am not a fan of baseball. I find the game to be boring and lacking in action. As … Continue reading Things to do in Lethbridge: Western Major League Baseball!
I finally watched Spiderman: Homecoming, but am having a hard time thinking of how to describe it without comparing it to the other Spiderman movies I've seen, I'm not going to bother trying. The movie was good, better than Civil War and Age of Ultron, but maybe not as good as Doctor Strange or Ant … Continue reading Spiderman: Homecoming A reboot with no Uncle Ben
