Happy First Fathers Day!!!

Ah, it's Joe's first Father's Day and he has earned the title in our household of #1 DAD. A few pictures I'm sure he'd rather not have his friends and family see will hopefully make it clear why he won this award...

Anticipation of Joseph's birth:

Hanging out watching T.V.

Hanging out enjoying the new walkway:

Packing up for the move to the new house:

Being a daddy has changed Joe. What better way to show this transformation than some before and after photos. Observe:


RedFish Grill New Orleans, LA___Wendy's Durham, NC



Remote resort in C.R. ____Our couch in the L.R.
(C.R. = Costa Rica)

Race Girl Top fuel dragster___See the baby on the workbench?


Zion National Park______________The NC Zoo



The Devil's Oven__________________Our Kitchen

Yeah, he wouldn't like his coworkers to see this one. (Hi Matt!!!)

We love you daddy!!!

Happy First Father's Day!!! XXOOXOX!

Breakfast Buffet

Who would have thought that a small pancake and a single oversized strawberry would make a little sick kid's day? Joseph has been working on getting better, a double ear infection has had him resting and recuperating for a few days now.
This morning we had him in his booster seat to have breakfast and he was as happy as can be!

First Haircut

Joseph had his first hair cut at 10 months old. I think we waited a little longer than we should have but we didn't want him to be all grown up. (And by 'we' I mean 'I'.)


The salon was a kids only place that really catered to the little ones.
Even the chairs and smocks were brightly colored and kid sized.

I was so sad to see my little boy get a big boy haircut but he was so good! He sat in the seat and let the stylist do a great job.


It's OURS!!

So, we signed on the house yesterday! We are officially the proud new owners of 1306 Kintail Drive!
The yard won't be planted until the fall.
The builder still has a few odds and end to clean up around the house, but it is otherwise complete.

The backyard is taking shape!

We went to visit the house today and they have made considerable progress! The backyard is really starting to resemble what we want. It's hard to see in these photos because there isn't any contrast but trust me when I say - it's nearly there!

Lookin' good!
