Time sure flies when you're having fun.

Outside Park Daddy

Now that’s a sentence I like to hear. All captions provided by Dane himself!

Mountains Daddy


Ball. Circle-wheel. Spinning.

I added this last one because there were surfboards in the background and I give Dane as many opportunities as I can to say surfboard, surfing, ocean, wave, water, pelican, seagull, sand, beach, unicorns, poetry, rainbows!


Hadley, Welcome to the Party

Dane has a new cousin. She’s cute! We’re sure Dane will love her. Probably pull her hair and throw her Barbies. Sorry, this is what family does. ;-} (That’s a smiley, winky face.)

We can't wait to meet you Hadley.

Happy Halloween – 2012

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Dane just dressed up for his second Halloween. The little guy, after watching Mommy and Daddy carve pumpkins for a bit, entered the world of a dragon. He didn’t really want to trick-or-treat, who would when you don’t eat candy, but did help Mommy and Daddy pass out candy. The family hung out on the porch, chatting with neighbors, and enjoying all of the costumes.

Dane liked all of the “spooky” wears, finding favorites in a Dorothy with house on her and other little kids. No wagon or stroller that rolled by was safe, as Dane attempted to grab the wheels and speak of “circle-wheels”. A good time was had and the Halloween spirit was alive and well.

Surprisingly, Dane wore his dragon head the entire night! Go Dane!

How to train your dragon.

No candy for me?

Mommy carves a mean pumpkin!

I'm a dragon, in case you didn't guess.
