Our vacation (on the Carnival Magic)  this year was LONG overdue, and was amazing. Not because of all that we did, but of how little we did. Being lazy, afternoon naps and staying up until 2am dancing are all underrated in my opinion. We spent almost the entire time on the ship and only got […]

Sydney’s First Bed

This time we decided not to wait until the bed was being scaled with a single leap over, and got Sydney her own bed. She’s been really good at sleeping on the floor mat at Grandma’s house so we thought she was ready. We waited for it to be assembled before we brought her into […]

Back in September Brenda and I took the day (child-free) to spend all day in Chicago walking, talking and taking photos. I decided that I would only take HDR photos that day, so this is my first serious attempt at this type of photography. The rest of the photos can be found on SmugMug. Normally […]

We spent a few hours Saturday afternoon in Millennium park. I’m always amazed at how beautiful Chicago is in the summer and how much it has to offer. We had a impromptu picnic on the lawn, let the kids roam free and had a great time. A few photos are here, the rest are on […]

Since Max and Andrew entered early intervention just after their first birthday,  Brenda has always looked for any and all solutions that might help the boys. As time moved forward the focus would change, and of course now the focus is on his diagnoses of being on the spectrum of Autism. Brenda has read more […]

Why We Don’t Take Many Family Photos

Why We Don’t Take Many Family Photos

This is pretty typical of what it’s like when we try to take any kind of planned photo at all with the kids. Running and chasing them with the camera is fine, but try to get them to sit with you and just give up. These photos are from Mothers day and the rest are […]

New Wheels for 2011

While the Radio Flyer Red Wagon we’ve been using has served us well, it has slowly been becoming a tight fit with the boys. Not only do they almost not fit anymore, but there’s no extra room to carry the diaper bag or snacks. So, enter the new “Tractor Wagon” (this is what Andrew calls […]
