Ramping Up

A few months ago the paper did an article about our Skate outreach we do every Sunday afternoon at our house. The first picture is of Alex. He is one of my favorite guys. He skates professionally for Untitled, works at our company and helps lead the outreach. It has been amazing to watch this kid transform into a man this year. He's getting married next month!




If you look to the right you can almost see my front door. Yep, this ramp is the first thing I see when I walk out my front door. When Adam first told me what he wanted to build, he failed to mention it would stand taller than my house and be quite the uummmm, let's just say, big ugly eye sore of a structure from the outside. However, when I hear the sound of kids dropping in, loud music playing, and laughter, it becomes a thing of great beauty.


So what do we do on the ramp when it's not Sunday?





SLIDE! Of course.

If I show this to my 19 year old son, he's going to want you to adopt HIM.
