If you know anything about my wife and me at all, you know that we thrive on taking extreme risks that place ourselves and others in harm’s way. This extended weekend is no different.

Mel and I are spending the weekend up north at the in-laws, where we have been doing some incredibly risky activities, like watching sunsets without UV eye protection:

The next day we really started to take some risks. We wanted to go out and play in the water, but the expiration date on our sunblock was passed. NOT A PROBLEM. We will use expired sunblock without thinking twice about it. Also, my life jacket was ill-fitting. So risky!

While we were out braving the harsh sunlight, we spotted this extraordinarily tall Crag of Death. Naturally, I had to jump off it. But first, I had to climb it.

And then Mel jumped into the lake – HEAD FIRST!!!

We might need to slow down a bit. Things might be getting a little bit TOO risky, even for us…
