Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around us...to touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

Ducks in a Row
On Tuesday we took the Jeep back to the dealer to make sure the front end was in alignment. Mike has noticed that it pulls to the right a bit when we are coming to a stop and that can cause wear on the tires. They discovered that it was in line but the tires needed to be rotated in order to help the “pull” to the right situation. It was so funny, the young guys rotating the tires were so intrigued by the tire pressure pro stem caps. They just couldn’t believe that it would let us know if there was a blow out or low pressure. They certainly learned something new yesterday. Anyway, they got the job done and the Jeep now drives and stops so much better.
Today is Mike’s birthday and we plan to take him out for dinner to celebrate. We will have a little cake and ice cream when we get back to the rig. We are both trying to loose a few pounds and it is sooooo hard. Stephen is going to bring his little dog, Josh and spend the night with us. We have started walking the campground each evening and that is helping but we probably need to up the number of miles to get really good results.We’ll work on that. You gotta start somewhere!
That about does it for now. We are just tying up loose ends and getting things in travel order. We are ready to roll.
