My family and I  had just celebrated my wife’s grandfather’s 90th birthday.  2 observations from his life:

  1. In life, we must give 100% to what we are involved in.
  2. Along the way, we cannot forget to connect with others and invest in their lives too.  


The sit-ups triggered spontaneous barks from nocturnal spiders.

    We are climbing a ladder that is always descending in life. It is easy to lose focus on what is ahead. Colossians 3:1-2 “Since you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on earthly things.”

      2.  Duckling walks and 100 flutter kicks.  

      Rob the Nest
      2 teams lined up on opposite ends of parking lot with buckets of Easter eggs in the center of the lot.  1 PAX ran into the center to retrieve an egg containing a surprise workout (lunges, squats, burpees, 8-count body builders, LBC’s, big boy sit-ups, pickle pounders, pickle pointers, etc.) while the rest of the team held a plank.  After the exercise was completed, another PAX ran into the center to retrieve another egg until all eggs were gone from the bucket.  


      Canoe – 30 seconds


      Shared the importance of evaluating priorities and determining what is important when setting goals.  Commitments and expenditures of resources such as time, money, and energy should reflect our priorities and goals.  Sometimes, that may mean backing away from commitments that do not align with our priorities and pursuing opportunities that will result in personal development and accomplishment of our goals.  


      Easter dinners the night before triggered dangerous tailwinds from multiple PAX’s.
