2010 Subaru Outback: First Oil Change

May 24, 2010
The odometer on the Outback turned over to 4400 miles, so I decided it was time for its first oil change.  The following post is how to change to oil in a 2010 Subaru Outback 2.5i…or at least how I did it.

A Weekend To Remember

May 19, 2010
Last weekend was packed full of memorable events, so I am going to try to remember them all and type them down here with links and what not, like I do.

To All The Mothers…

…and mothers-to-be in my family.  Happy Mother’s Day!

So I have not updated this thing in a while so here is a shotgun approach to what has been going on.

Gillian is final starting to look pregnant, this makes me happy.

We took a trip out to Colorado to see Chris and Kathleen and Eppley and their new house.  For the most part we just hung out and caught up, nothing to exciting, we are getting old I guess. For some reason I didn’t take many pictures.  I wanted to take a picture of the Outback in its natural habitat…the Colorado Mountains, but never did for some reason, I did take this picture of children wearing gas masks though.  It was great to see Chris and Kathleen, and their new house is beautiful, you will just have to trust me.

This last weekend was very baby focused, I mean more so than normal. Friday, a large packaged showed up, to our surprise it was a car seat and stroller from my Aunt Mary.  I want to strap Nerf guns to either side, so it looks more like ED-209.  Thank you Aunt Mary!! and for the record, yes that was a RoboCop reference.  The rest of the weekend was one of our typical whirlwind trip to Lincoln/Omaha to visit all of our friends and family.  Saturday, we drove to Lincoln, Gillian went to Sarah’s baby shower, I helped Santi pick up their new coffee table and then we had lunch and drank beer, it was good.  After the shower, Gillian and I drove to Omaha to take pictures of Lyda going to prom, go out to dinner for mt sister’s birthday and help her assemble baby stuff and test my sister’s baby carriers, oh and I installed a new ceiling fan in my mom’s house.  On Sunday Santi’s parent, who were in from Argentina, wanted to buy us “something for the baby”.  We went to Nebraska Furniture Mart and picked out a glider, it is officially the nicest piece of furniture we own…Thank You, Juan and Maria!!  We then had lunch to celebrate Mark and Lyda’s birthday.

I am sure there has been plenty more that I am forgetting, but since most the people who read this where probably there, I don’t feel that bad for leaving something out.
