Rollie’s Fifth Birthday

So, I already did the sappy letter post, but here’s the fun stuff! We had Rollie’s party at the pool. Not a lot of folks could make it, since it was a holiday weekend, but we had fun anyway! Lightning McQueen cake, which had to be fixed when they put “Happy Birthday, Bollie” on it. […]

Daily Dash

I feel pretty lucky to live so close to the Little Man, Dashiell. He and Lisa visited yesterday and i took a couple of decent shots of Dash and Tills together. (You try getting a 2 year-old to hold a newborn, and for both of them to look remotely close to the camera without someone’s […]

Dash

The only picture my stingy, sleep-deprived brother-in-law deigned to send to me. He is cute, but one picture does not do justice to the majesty* of my new nephew. This will have to suffice for the time being. *All newborns look like alien worm beings.

Stream of Consciousness Post

kids_0004.jpg Originally uploaded by Dogwood Girl. This is one of my ultimate favorite pics of the boy. I think this was probably around Memorial Day or 4th of July at the Lake. (Note old boathouse – Outta there!) I guess he was about 10 months or so. Damn, he had some serious rubber banding (rubber […]
