Five Years Old

EDITED: I REALIZE THE PHOTOS ATTACHED ON THIS POST ARE NOT SHOWING UP…I AM HAVING GREAT DIFFICULTY TRYING TO UPLOAD ANY PHOTOS TO MY BLOG AND WILL HOPEFULLY SOON FIGURE OUT THE PROBLEM. LAST NIGHT THE PHOTOS WERE THERE, TODAY THEY ARE GONE. FUN TIMES ON THE WORLD WIDE WEB! Our little man is five, […]

All Good Things Must Come To An End

We said farewell to the beach today and headed home. Thankfully, God sent some rain to the Destin area this morning, so it made our parting less painful. Of course a beach trip is not complete with children until you’ve subjected them to countless posed photos by the ocean at sunset. Shannon and I decided […]

And The Fun Continues

Shannon just left with the older kids to go to a nearby water park. They left me behind with Walt, who is napping as I type. As you might imagine, it grieves me that I can’t be a part of all the water fun. There’s nothing I love more than wearing a swimsuit and going […]

Fun Times Indeed

The End of the Slow-Pitch Era

Anna Katherine played her final slow-pitch softball game last week. Next year she’ll promote to fast-pitch. After three seasons, she’s really become a smooth first-baseman (or first-basegirl). She was asked to be on the All-Star team, but since the tournament falls during our beach trip, she opted not to participate. She chose a sandy beach […]

Happy Birthday, Grandad!

Gran and Grandad came for a visit this past weekend. Since Friday was Grandad’s birthday, we celebrated the event with a dinner of grilled steaks. (Grandad is usually on a strict diet after undergoing bypass surgery a few years ago, but we let him splurge on one of his favorites…a good-ole rib eye. And, since […]

Happy Father’s Day 2008

It seems like only yesterday… The new Daddy holds his baby girl. (April, 1997)Looks like it may have been a long night. Childbirth can be rough on a Dad! Father and son meet for the first time.
