About Us...
This is our travel blog... our electronic travel journal you could call it... documenting our journeys to new & different places. I called our blog, 'Tree Top Flyin'... a Jimmy Buffett reference that reminds me of traveling, & the adventures to be had with our newly acclaimed 'IFR' Pilot & his plane. We're a non-traditional family - living in non-traditional ways... and I love it that way. For the four of us life is quick & distinct... it's unique and adventuresome - but it's also very normal. We have angst, & we have laughter. We have pain and we have greatness. We're happy, and we're whole...this family, that is mine.

Omaha, Nebraska
Somehow I ended up registered for a Warrior Dash in Nebraska, so we jumped in the plane and headed to Fiarbury to pick up Rick & Darcy.

Pre-Race BBQ with Blatny's

There were several moments I thought I was going to die. 
Our 'heat' (pun intended) started at 3pm - on one of the hottest days of the year. 

Jim decided to swim under the mud at the end. It's brilliant decisions like this that make it nice to have Dr. Blatny on hand. Hours later Rick irrigated a small sand-box from Jim's ears. 

Salt Lake City, UT
Hanging out with my sisters.
 One of these days Melissa will be done with Med School and our sister outings will be complete & flawless. 

Trying my best not to be obsessed with baby Leah - who is mine every Wednesday. Favorite day o' the week.

Leah Leah Leah.
I took my little sisters to the salon this day for a little pampering - an innocent ploy to hold the babe for two hours.

Smoot, WY
Jim on the phone - multi-tasking. A little digging - a little business.

Las Vegas, NV
Hockey Tournament. Made it to the finals - but lost the end game.

Somewhere, TX
Jim took the boys wild boar hunting. They past hunters safety, and were SO proud to earn their right to kill.
 Bo got his hog right away, and couldn't wait to smother it in his brothers face. 

Ty is patient and sweet, and although I think it was eating him alive that his brother had already made a kill - he always sucks it up. He did hunt after hunt, through midnight, and then again in the morning at 5am, and again through midnight. 
He's a champ. And did, eventually get his hog. 
I love you Tyler J. 

Salt Lake City, UT
Some good laughs with old friends. Making a happy day, out of the tragedy of losing one of the girls.
