My First Taekwondo Competition in McPherson, Kansas

The T-shirt reads, "There's no "Fear" in McPherson." I didn't buy the competition T-shirt this time, but I did have a good time with family and friends at my first Taekwondo tournament.

The Ark Encounter Williamstown Kentucky 2017

We made it this time! Last week, we had a family trip to Cane's because we mistakenly thought the Ark was at the Creation Museum.

I call it the Ark Experience, because moving around it and in ti really is an experience. It is also an encounter, because no matter what you believe or think about this thing, it really does cause you to think.

We all enjoyed it and look forward to visiting it again.

Oh yeah...I took pictures of the "Spooky Jesus" (formerly known as "Touchdiwn Jesus" before lightning struck it...so I'm told) on the way back home.
