So I've grown weary of blogging. It's time for something fresh and new. And Twitter is just what the doctor ordered. Time for you to explore a new website, too. So go to, join, and then follow me. i'm "becauseican" on that website, naturally.

The New York Times calls Twitter "one of the fastest-growing phenomena on the Internet." TIME Magazine says, "Twitter is on its way to becoming the next killer app," and Newsweek noted that "Suddenly, it seems as though all the world's a-twitter." What will you think?

i'll be looking for you...

Big League Dreams and the Great Wolf Lodge

We had quite the eventful 4-day weekend. B had a baseball tournament in Mansfield at Big League Dreams. It's a super-cool sports park, where each field is a replica of a major league ballpark, complete with fan-filled outfield bleacher facade, box seats, and big-league type dugouts.

The kids were out of school Monday and Tuesday(teacher workday and bad weather make-up day), so we took a little pre-summer family vaca to the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine. And we had a blast. The indoor waterpark is really nice and the slides are pretty unique. Plus, the hotel has so much kid-friendly stuff that you can just sit and read a book while your kids are having fun. There's an interactive game called MagiQuest where they go all over the hotel with a wand searching for clues and objects, so that they can slay a dragon in the end. I think that B&A climbed up and down the 8 floors a total of 7 hours in their quest, taking breaks only to eat, sleep, and head to the waterpark. Fun was had by all.
