Henry Looks Beyond

Henry looks beyond into the future. What does he see? Only he knows and he ain’t sayin’! Not that he doesn’t talk, he has quite a few words in his tiny little vocabulary. He really loves bike, and has an almost mastery of the word NO. He is quite adept at saying he wants more …

A Couple Of Magicians At Work

There were no strings, this is not trick photography. This is the real deal, my friends. Eliza can levitate. No strings, she just concentrates real hard and makes it happen. It’s like magic, only it’s something even more than magic. You want to see me do a magic “trick” from 8 years ago? It’s really …

Green. Some Haikus And A Limerick. [DUMB]

The post you’re about to read is most likely the worst one yet. I apologize but I don’t know what I’m doing and can’t be stopped. Here are some Haikus. This photo is green. Henry is really tiny. Grass grows and gets clipped. Walking in the grass. Side by side with his mother. They’re having …

Mike Wazowski Cupcakes

Here are some pics of Amanda decorating Mike Wazowski (Monsters Inc, Monsters University) cupcakes on Henry’s birthday a couple weeks ago. They were pretty good tasting and looking. Oreo cookies were the mouth and eye and the Oreo frosting is the eye ball Good work, Mom!

A Family Photo


We snapped a couple family pics today and this is one of ’em. This was at the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge, about 20 mile from South Padre Island. It was a nice place to see, lots of flowers, plants, trees, birds and other animals. They sometimes even have alligators, whoa!

Hello Polar Vortex.


We got a taste of the Polar Vortex today, it seems. It was so dang cold and windy here in SPI. It may possibly always be windy here, but nothing like this. It was the talk of the continental breakfast this morning. We mostly stayed in our room, but we did try to go out …

This Thing Is Bigger In Texas


A cup of sweet tea, Texas size. Amanda pretends to drink it. A while after this pic was taken, she really did drink it. It was good. This post tonight brought to you by the short boring post committee which is a real thing.

The Gambler, or: Eliza In Great Grandpa’s Hat

  Last night Eliza found this hat and was putting it on. It’s my grandpa’s, her great grandpa’s hat. He was a really awesome guy, my grandpa. He never did get to meet Eliza unfortunately but his hat will live on with us, along with all of our great memories. He was a gambling man …

Drinking Juice From The Can


I like frozen juice, it’s pretty cheap and tastes good. I don’t know (or really care) about the nutritional value so don’t get upset or anything. I do know that the fancy plastic can brand is my favorite. Old Orchard, I guess it is. I like it because after I’ve dumped the concentrated juice into …

Hey Look, No Kids


Sunday Amanda and I went down to Coors Field to watch the Colorado Rockies play a baseball match. This is a photo of us there. Notice there are no children, at least our children. This is because they spent the day with their grandma. It was the second baseball game we went to this year …

Henry and His Mom

Henry and His mom, Amanda pose for a photo. Henry isn’t a real good model just yet. It’s so hard to get him to look at the camera. Those people at the Sears photo shop (or wherever) who get the babies of strangers to look at the camera and smile have a hard job. Pretty …

So Long, Amanda.

  It’s been real nice having you around as a wife and mother of our children, Amanda. But now I fear I must bid you farewell. At least that’s what they say is going to happen now that you’re in graduate school. They try to put the fear of book gods in you, telling you …

Sunday At (Great) Grandma’s House

Hi From All Of Us


This is one of the few (if any) pics of the 4 of us together. We’re all real and can be in the same place at the same time. This place was at the east portal of the Moffat Tunnel, near Rollinsville, Colorado. We went up there today to do some hiking and sightseeing. It …
