I've met Tess, my dad's wife, and their children Kyle, Kirsten, Kelsey and Keegan for the first time, which has been pretty great. We grew up seeing pictures of each other (and more recently have been friends on facebook) so we had some idea what to expect, but it's nice to just spend time with them.
For the most part we've been hanging around the house, looking at my dads old pictures, playing Texas hold em (I won two dollars, big balla), and catching up
Kyle and I are goin to hike to the top of Mt. Pinatubo in a couple of days - some of y'all might remember when it exploded in 1991 and was a huge disaster. My dad said it covered the area we are now in about 12 inches of volcanic dust, and it injected enough sulfur into the stratosphere that it actually cooled the earth (it actually prompted scientists to consider intentional sulfur injections as a way to prevent global warming). It's inactive now and at the top is a crater lake that you can swim in, should be cool.
Anyways I'm uploading some random pictures I've taken so far. Everything's going great and I'm excited for the rest of my time here!
