Oh The Places We Do Go

Last night Ohiophotogrl and I went to First Friday in the Oregon District. On the first Friday of every month all the shops are open till 9 or later and there are street performers and people playing music in the street. This month we checked out a place called 416 Dinner.

The have the most wonderful potato twists there that you will ever have! Ohiophotogrl got a grilled cheese that was quite yummy and our pal ScottyScouts got a veggie burger. MMMMM they even have a kids menu.

The place seats about 25-30 people I would guess but the owner came over and talked with us and the waitress did a great job as well. Pretty sure we have a new favorite place.

They have vegetarian options and they have gluten free desserts! You really should go check them out if your in downtown Dayton, Ohio. There actual location is 416 E 5th St.

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

May The Fourth Be With You

I like most Star Wars fans are celebrating May Fourth. Why your asking yourself? Because we can. How cool is it to say May the Fourth Be With You!

I met up with my friends R2D2, C3PO and Yoda for a photo! We had a great time catching up before they had to head back and help save the galaxy far far away!

Have a great day!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Tomorrow is Love Day

I couldn’t figure out what to do for Ohiophotogrl for Valentines Fay so I started searching Pinterest. I put my apron on

And pulled out some ingredients

I also found some melting chocolate so guess what I made…

How cute are those! They are now in the fridge getting cold to serve with dinner! I am one crafty potato!

Wonder what we’ll do next!

I’m ready are you

Here in the 937 we got hit with a few inches of snow last night

It was really bad this morning, but as you can see the roads are now clear. That little spot by my nose…..it’s a resident squirrel. He came down from his nest to get the corn I left him :0)

I am so ready for spring! I ordered some seeds for the garden and they came in the mail yesterday!

This isn’t everything I’m gonna plant but a variety of the things I want to grow. Do you have a Garden? What do you like to plant in your garden? Stay tuned as it gets closer to spring, we will be getting the garden ready and even planting some starters ahead of time! I love to garden! This year we ordered heirloom seeds from http://www.rareseeds.com no gmos. We will be sharing more about this as time goes on!

What do you do on a rainy day

We make muffins.  Banana, walnut, golden raisin muffins to be exact!img_0025

This is good for breakfast on the go! We make small ones and regular size ones when we make them.  It only takes about 20 minutes to mix them up and back them. We use a mix from the grocery store and then add extra nuts and raisins. MMMMMMMMMMM Good!

What kinda muffins do you like?

What’s for breakfast

Sometimes we like to get up and make breakfast before we start the day. I wait for Ohiophotogrl to wake up and look for recipes on her phone.

This morning I found these eggs. However we are gonna use her new cookware and cook them with very little water. That’s right boiled eggs cooked with just a wet paper towel in the bottom of the pan. Here goes nothin…..

Wetted paper towel and put them in the Kitchen Craft cookware turned the eye in Med heat for 3 minutes.

Spun the lid till it felt like it was gliding. It was making a vaper seal and turned the heat down as low as it would go for 13 minutes. Took the lid off and cracked the shells…..the shells come off very easy! And the eggs….

Perfect! Mmmmmmmm breakfast is served! What are you having?

Happy New Year 2018

I’m still alive and doing well my friends. I know 2017 was a bit quiet but Ohiophotogrl assures me that 2018 will bring more adventure than last year and I will get to tag along! I wrote this up….

She has agreed so be on the look out for more adventure and more quality time with me and Ohiophotogrl!

Wonder what we will do next?

An Eclipes

Today where I live we had a partial eclipse.


I got some special glasses so I could watch and we made some pinhole boxes to look at the eclipse. 

How did the boxes work…


You need a box, some aluminum foil and some tape! You cut two holes on the top. One to look through and one to put aluminum foil on. You take a needle and put a small hole in the aluminum foil. Tape it on and there ya go. Here is a few shots that we got.




It was a lot of fun to watch this. Here is Ohiophotogrl and I enjoying our time


NASA of course got some better shots 


But what ever you do don’t look directly at the sun. We don’t want to hear any stories of anyone burning there retina.  We love science! 

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Walking the beach

As Ohiophotogrl and I were walking the beach we came across a few of these holes. I was pointing this out to Ohiophotogrl when something popped out of the whole.


It was a crab! After my experience earlier in the week I decided to stay clear of him. I’m pretty sure he was just as scared of me as I was of him. There was lots of animal life along the beach.


Did I mention I love the beach!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Wow that was close

Made it back to the water just in time. I was afraid I was going to stay a crab for ever.  Lucky for me the ocean water changed me back. 

After some beach time I collected a few shells


I think I could live on the beach :0) after I collected my shells I went back to the room for a nice long nap!

After I watch a little tv of course :0)

Wonder what we’re gonna do tomorrow?
