Picked up a Drone (DJI Phantom 2)

Here my first flight with a DJI Phantom 2 H3-3D and filmed using the new GoPro 4. It was such a blast and can’t wait to tomorrow with a full battery. The girls have cheer in Granite Falls but doubt I’ll bring it. It’s a bit loud. Side note: if people think spying can be…

Adam’s Family Video by JibJab

I love making videos. Long ones, short ones, funny ones, action ones, and even JibJab.com ones.

Fish Tank Fun During #SharkWeek

I’ve been enthralled in Discovery’s Shark Week. Despite the fake “Submarine” documentary, which many hate and I enjoyed because its realistic nature, there is still so much to enjoy about a tradition I’ve come to enjoy each and every year.

I’m pretty stoked…
