Last weekend was a blast! Friday, Momma and I went out to celebrate our 6th Anniversary (we’ve been together for 10 years now)! Then we went to an awesome dinner at Tony’s Italian Restaraunt here in Columbus, and ended the night out by seeing College the movie…pretty freakin’ funny flick!
Saturday we had big plans. We drove Ace and his cousin, Olivia, to the town where I grew up to check out a Fly-In. Here we got to see a bunch of cool air planes. Instead of blabbing on and on about the planes, I’ll just post some pics…
Then we were off to the Demolition Derby! One of my favorite things to watch!
My brother had been building a car to drive in the derby. We went down to watch him wreck his car, but he had to back out at the last minute due to some car troubles. Oh well, we still had a good time!
Have I ever mentioned that Ace likes anything with wheels? Well, he does…and he loves derby cars! He ket pointing at the cars and blabbering in giberish…that means he likes what he sees.
The derby was very crowded and we were late to find a seat, so we had to stand and watch. Of course there were a few rednecks (I fit right in. ) standing in front of us so the kids could not see.
So, here comes dad/uncle to the rescue! Go go human pedestal!
At the end of a very long day we all had a very good time. I’m glad that Ace and Olivia enjoyed the planes and the derby so much. Now I know I have someone to watch the derby with for years to come.
I finally bit the bullet and shaved it all off. I’m talking totally gone…shaved with a razor.
Here was my before pic:
and here is the after:
What do you think? Keep shaving it? Or let it grow back? Let me know what you think in the comments below…
Things have been nuts lately…going here, going there, doing this, doing that. Life has been far from boring…let me tell ya!
I’ve been so consumed by daily life that I forgot to celebrate DadThing.com’s one year birthday on September 1st! I’m such a bad webmaster/blogger.
In celebrating the one year birthday here at DadThing.com I wanted to take a stroll down memory lane and share some of the highlights of year number 1…

So it’s been a while since the last post, the one where I was going to the doctor to be checked. Well as it turns out, everything came out fine and nothing else is needed. Yay for that!!! The other good thing, my monthly bill came so that means that my body is totally healed and the baby-making can now proceed! Jared is more than excited to get back to work in that department and we are keeping our fingers crossed that it doesn’t take quite as long this time; and that it doesn’t have the same result. The odds are in our favor though, so that gives me some hope!
Another thing I thought I would mention, I wasn’t sure if I really was healing emotionally but today I found out for sure. My best friend for the last 15 years is/was pregnant, due October 9th. She had her baby girl today, and we were all surprised! Momma and baby are doing great, Maddie was a little small but doing great, no extra measures were needed (i.e. oxygen or anything like that) and proud papa Bryan could not stop smiling or hide that tear in his eye! It was great to see them all, and to see God’s work again! As soon as I showed up at the hospital they asked me to hold her and at first I just couldn’t, I was too afraid that I would cry. So after about an hour of visiting, I finally gave in. And you know what, I wasn’t jealous (which I will admit I was terrified that I might be) but I was filled with so much love for my newborn “niece” that I thought I might cry. To look in her face and not wish that she was mine but to actually be so proud of Jennifer for all her hard work. To know that this child will know so much love in her lifetime, I was overwhelmed with emotion. I wish my dear friends the best on this new journey they are taking, and I hope Maddie brings to them what Ace has brought to us; pure, unconditional, unwavering love!
Today I celebrate that not only was a child born but a mother and father as well!
We love you Jen and Bryan, welcome to the “Breeder’s Club”!
We love you Maddie (even though you just got here), welcome to the world!
