There Is Only This.

It's a good thing we got those iPhones. After riding in a car that belongs to Cromars to go to a place Cromars had researched to participate in an activity Cromars had to coach us through all while using the Cromar's equipment, it hit us - we're not sure what we bring to the table when it comes to this relationship.

Until it came time to find a place for dinner at Noah's UrbanSpoon app saved the day.

I know what you're thinking - Noah's phone. So is Allison just dead weight? You said it.

Speaking of dead weight, this month's adventure with the Cromars was rock climbing in the Peters Kill area of Minnewaska State Park.
I'm relieved to admit my rock climbing skills are a little more impressive than my ice climbing skills. And my bow hunting skills are far superior to my computer hacking skills.
The most quote-worthy moment of the day came when Kevin was midway through his first climb. We weren't into the whole warm-up-on-a-wussy-climb idea (who am I kidding? I would have been a-okay with a warm-up-on-a-wussy-climb idea), so it was pretty challenging. He hit a point where you had to ask yourself, "where WILL he go from here?" and Lauren encouragingly reminded him he didn't have to expend all his energy on this first ascent. To which Kevin replied in strained tones, "there is only this." Well said.
It was an absolutely gorgeous September afternoon with the greatest company. Thanks, as always, Cromars!

Where is that? It looks lovely.
And you aren't dead weight. Did Noah write this blog post? NO.

Haha. That's what's so great about you two. Just the two of you are enough. You don't need no stinking gadgets.(said in a Mexican accent) That place looks beautiful. Nice work on the rock climbing.
