marketing.

the local coca cola bottler was giving away full cans of coke during the 4th of july parade presumably to support the share a coke 2.0 campaign. i saw a lot of kids trading cans so they could have the one they wanted to share with someone else.

the customized bottle is a complicated bit of marketing genius that’s supremely complicated to pull off. i bet there were a loooooooot of bottles given away today at parades all over the country.

i saw the can on the gingham table cloth and couldn’t not take a picture. if only it had a little american flag next to to round out the image.

we decided to take a little hike pre-birthday hike up hogback mountain near marquette, michigan.

day 4017 - 182/365. hiking the hogback! II.

we didn’t know it at the time but some consider it one of the most difficult hikes in michigan. i don’t know about that, but it was challenging. the hard work was worth it though because the view of lake superior and the surrounding area was gorgeous.

day 4015 – 180/365. a rare family reunion!

day 4015 - 180/365. a rare family reunion!

wow, how time flies – we haven’t had this crew together for 6 years! since then some have been born, many have gotten bigger and at least one of us has gotten much smaller :-) always great to see family. odin had a grand time with his cousins.

i’m sure somewhere i have a photo of us the last time we got together that i should dig out.

as always, the odds are slim of getting everyone to look at the camera at the same time in family photos.
