Welcome to the New Johnsonhost.com or should I say Johnson.pro! The new website will serve as home for not only the shared family blog as it always has, but also now include the personal blogs and contributions submitted by individual family members.
The Johnson family Greg, Shawn and Mike went up the Skagit River in a boat in order to get a better viewing of all the Bald Eagles (The United States National Bird) It was a gorgeous clear day on the Skagit river. Our tour guide Wayne was Captain of the boat that floated our family down the river in a heated rowboat, After about an hour and a half Wayne offered the passengers warm cups of hot chocolate and periodic information about the local wildlife.
Here are just a few of the great pictures from the tour.
This year Michael and his Roommate Nick had the pleasure to see the World Series live and in person in San Francisco. This year the Giants swept the Detroit Tigers to win their second World Series in 3 years.
The Excitement in the crowd was un-containable in San Francisco for game one and it would set the tone for the Giants for the rest of the series.
We’re on the second day of the Arlington Fly-in air show Greg Lynda, Sharon and Mike got up around 4 am so we could meet Larry Simburger and his crew out on the airfield for a morning air flight over Arlington. Below are some pictures from the balloon flight. Click on any picture you want to see full size. I will add a link to the post later that will include the videos we shot as well.
We would like to thank Larry and his son Matt for letting us come out and help him crew for his balloon we had fun.
We have a lot more pictures from the first day of flight to see them all head over to flickr and check out the slideshow.
