Walk at the Park

Our little outing to the park
He just couldn't resist climbing a tree - trying to be his young self once again.

Here he is victorious!
I seem to be getting a lot of pictures like this lately - does anyone else have this problem?


Another failed attempt to get a picture together. He's just trying to figure out why I'm wallowing on him and taking pictures (poor guy)

Much Better

Happy Father's Day

Here are some old photos to celebrate our fathers. Thank you for all that you do for us!

My Dad way back when.
(I just found this picture a few days ago and love it)

Best Buddies Prom

First a little bit about Jackie:
She is my 19 year old sister who is a “special needs” kid due to a cancerous brain tumor (medulloblastoma) she had at the age of four. The removal of the tumor along with treatments caused a variety of new challenges she has faced. I along with my whole family are so lucky to have this special girl. Jackie is my hero as she has tackled some of the ugliest challenges life can throw. She truly is a survivor and a very fun kid!

So, to celebrate Jackie I wanted to post some pictures from her 2008 Senior Prom. The event was designed to be casual or formal or 80’s style with family members invited.

Looking beautiful at the table
Going towards the limo with a couple of school friends

Her teacher was such a crack up the whole night. Here is is sending them off in the limo with the "best buddies" (a club of high school kids who help out) supervising of course. They would drive around for 15 minutes and then he would send out another group. David Bowie...rock on!
Jackie with one of the Best Buddies. They were so wonderful for spending their Friday evening with these very special kids.

Jackie with our mom

Everyone in the room got excited when these two got out on the dance floor. (Mrs. Syrus is one of Jackie's wonderful teachers who happens to live a block away from my mom with her wonderful family.)

Taking a break by the fountain

Ending the night with a picture Jackie with her teacher and his wife.

Jackie is a Senior but will have an extra two years at high school after the official graduation. Our family is so proud of her!

Johnathan's Birthday

Last weekend we had a follow up birthday celebration for this great guys birthday at the Crab Cooker. I had a final until 11pm on John's actual birthday so I wasn't able to make it to the first celebration.

We love fish but could not resist getting these crazy looking things

Which were super yummy!!

...but very disturbing to Jackie (standing behind me)
