Last week in middle Pennsylvania, I spent a day with my nephew Kyle, a college music student. It was an honor, since its not often I get time with my family out on the other coast. Part of our day included a drive to Gettysburg, a 30 minute jaunt from where were at the time. I am a sucker for history, so this addition on the itinerary was a no-brainer. We could have watched a movie like “Hangover Part 3” but wiser thinking ruled the day. The perfect weather also proved an outside activity a logical choice. (Yes, I did see Star Trek twice on this very trip.).
Now into week five of our family’s new adventure I am pretty busy the next three weeks or so! I am amazed at how many local leaders and friends from all over the place have been an encouragement to me and my family. As the Kirkpatrick clan is praying about […]

We spent the day today at the USS Midway museum in San Diego. Uhmm… any caption ideas for this photo?

On day five we went to the Getty Villa museum on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. What an amazing place. The artifacts were all ancient antiquities. With Greek art, of course this was a chance for sex education for our kids. Well, not intentional, but a lot of nude statues […]
We saw the Reagan Presidential Library (our 3rd POTUS library we have seen so far) and the Airforce One exhibit. Two things stuck out–the plane was cool and not as fancy inside as you would think (no mahogany paneling), and in the Oval Office replica a note I remember seeing […]
We are on the last legs of our 2nd 650 mile trip from Redding to Temecula. This trip was the getting the house ready to sell trip…paint, clean and sparkle. Our trip so far has had only one Monster drink, one object hit and dent the car and one stop…Santa […]
Coast Trip 2007 I already mentioned a bit about my trip, but you really need to see these pictures. Minutes and hours from where we live in Redding, the most beautiful scenery exists to wow the eyes and calm the soul. Beyond that, it was fun to break in my […]
