BIG Changes Coming...

We are One Month and Six Days away from The Big 1! It seems impossible that we’re here already. Oy vey! I’m supposed to be planning a party and I haven’t even started! If it keeps going this way its going to be a BYOF, BYOB, BYOD and BYOPF (Food, Beer, Decorations and Party Favors) party. Jimmy won’t mind if you don’t bring beer…just saying…

More info to come…

I have a beautiful baby.  Just wanted to tell y'all.  And that he's starting to look like a toddler. Bad baby!

First Pet

Jimmy is 10 months old, plenty old enough to start learning the responsibility of caring for a pet. I’m not planning to raise a lazy, irresponsible kid and you can’t start training soon enough!

While we were in FL Jimmy seemed especially taken with the lizards that crossed the walkway leading to the beach. He would follow them with his eyes across the walkway and into the brush and watch and watch until he couldn’t see them anymore. So we got him a lizard. I think he loves him a little too much.

Tan Lines

We took our first family vacation to the beach for the Independence Day weekend! There is something awe-inspiring about the ocean isn’t there? It’s almost impossible to comprehend the amount of water, the depths, the strange sea creatures and sand creatures for that matter and how it knows its boundaries.

The trip was long but Jimmy did amazingly well in the car for almost 15 hours! We arrived at the state park and quickly set up our tent and got things arranged to our liking and took off to see the beach. We were sticky and sweaty after all that work but as we cleared the last sand dune the breeze from the Gulf hit us and it felt delicious! The walk from our camp site to the beach was about a ¼ mile and unfortunately we forgot the stroller so our arms got a good work out all weekend.
