Thank You

Last night I reached another milestone with this blog. You wonderful people keep checking out what I post. It still surprises me everyday to see that you keep coming back.  It shouldn't surprise me anymore but it does. When I started this blog I assumed I'd get a few people wander in every so often and check it out. What I never expected was how many of you read it on a daily basis. I truly appreciate each and every one of you.....or at least your eyeballs. Doing this is so much more enjoyable knowing that you are out there reading the posts everyday.

Sooooooooo, with that said. Thank you for stopping in and checking out my little contribution to the blogging world. I can only promise more of the same but I have a feeling that's ok with all of you. Again, thanks for being so awesome. See you tomorrow.

Oh....You want a bonus picture? Uhhhh, ok. I guess I got something. Wait a second...Yes! I got it!
Here you go.

I'm not sure what this is exactly other than some random Japanese cartoon thing but I love it. I call the alligator, Alligator Pal and the other guy is Cardboard Box head. The cat is Kitty Loaf. I figure they are all super good friends.

I found these guys around the same time my oldest daughter was born. I drew them along with some other characters on the wall of Olivia's bedroom. My wife went back and painted them on. It was in our first house so we had to paint over it before we moved, that made me sad. I think I will always associate these guys with becoming a new dad. They bring back so many memories. I really like Mr. Cardboard box head, Alligator Pal and Kitty Loaf.

Dinos night out at the movies

The other day I did something I don't do enough. I stopped. I stopped, sat my butt on the floor, didn't say a word and watched my kid play with some toys. For all the parents who might read this I recommend you do this. It's one thing to play with your kids, it's another to just watch them play. It's amazing the things they come up with and highly entertaining.

I took some pictures of Amelie playing with dinosaurs. Apparently the dinos were going to the movies and trying to figure out what popcorn to get. Who knew a T-Rex and a Triceratops would be movie friends. Now I know.

Oh, it's picnic time.

Even though everybody was super tired we decided to go to a picnic on Sunday. I'm really glad we did. The kids had a blast and it was just nice to be outside.

So what made it so fun? Oh, well let me tell you.
First was the picnic, hot dogs and burgers on the lawn.

 The a kid came around giving everyone popcorn. Everett loved it.

 After the kids were done eating they moved on to sand necklaces.

 Then dessert, gotta have that.

Before the main event there was time for some face painting.

 And finally the main event. Pony rides!!

Everett's Birthday Party

Friday was Everett's 3rd birthday so Saturday we partied down like it was 1999....or something. My little guy's favorite thing in the whole world right now is butterflies so we had the kids color butterflies and hung them up all over the house. We got him a butterfly cake, got some food and had people come over. Instant party in a box.....or something. So here's some fun pictures from his birthday party.
