Feliz cinco de mayo!

Hey, guys. Happy fifth of May! It’s a big day for us here at the lake and we hope it is for you as well. We have lots of plans for the celebration.
Chad and I will dismiss school at noon so everyone can get ready for the celebration. The kids are in charge of decorating our homes – but I’m sure we dads will pitch in. We’ll have lots of balloons, crepe paper streamers, colorful paper table cloths and napkins and more surprises (we can hardly wait to see what Alex, Cal, Bella and Chance do to turn their home into the “Mexican cantina” they’ve promised).
The weather people say it’s going to be a beautiful, sunny Spring day so we’re doing a moving dinner. We’ll start at Chad and Raef’s place for chips, salsa and margaritas (virgin margaritas for the kids). Then, we’ll all walk over to Alex and Cals’ for tamales… then Keon and Ricks’ for enchiladas… then Ty and Damiens’ for quesadillas… then our house for fish tacos (the kids favorite). After all that food, we’ll head over to Jim and Carols’ for fried ice cream.
Alex has a big boom box that he’ll carry with us from cabin to cabin playing mariachi music and we’ll all carry our margaritas (and virgin margaritas) with us as we go.
Even though Alex and Matty are the only actual Latinos in our group, we all speak Spanish (in varying competencies) and after a margarita or two, we’re about as Latin as can be 🙂
Mucho cariño a todos y feliz cinco de mayo!

Hooray. Horray. It’s the first of May. Outdoor fucking begins today!

The tradition endures.
Our first “Mayday” post on URD was on May 1, 2013. There were earlier ones, of course, but they were deleted by Blogger and various other blog hosts. Doesn’t matter. Let’s all get outdoors and fuck!


We got the boats out of storage and brought them “home” yesterday. It’s great seeing activity at the dock after all these dreary months. The kids all wanted to swim, but the lake water temp is only about 65 degrees right now and we thought it’d be better to wait awhile.
Spring in the Ozarks is glorious. Everything has turned green and there’s a fresh, crisp feel to it all. Happy Mayday guys… and God bless. xoxo David and Ben

Dude. Check out these fit, flexible guys!

Yesterday, our friend “Phil” commented on Rick and Keon’s “gay photo poses” post, saying: “One of the things that always intrigued me and turned me on was flexibility, so a lot of these are yummmmmm”
That got us thinking about hot, supple, flexible guys – and this is the result. Hope you all like your guys fit and flexible!


We’ve had some beautiful Spring days and Ben has had the kids outdoors most afternoons. They’ve identified and collected leaves from a whole bunch of trees… got to see (and photograph) some deer and wild turkeys… and helped Dub plant his garden. It’s supposed to rain tomorrow and Thursday, so Dub is really happy to have everything planted. Spring is beautiful in the Ozarks and the kids are loving being out and about! xoxo David and Ben
