Lions, Tigers, and Bears!

The rain stayed away and we were able to go to the zoo! Thank goodness the weatherman is wrong 99.9% of the time!

Instead of boring you with my rambling on and on about the fun times we had, I’ll illustrate our fun time with a boat load of pictures…

Looking Forward

Looking Forward Back when I was a just a little guy, I remember looking forward to playing outside, going swimming, ice cream, and getting up in the morning to start a whole brand new day!

As I got a bit older and started school, I remember looking forward to going to school, recess, show-and-tell, and playing after school.

About the time I was in junior high, I remember looking forward to the weekend, summer vacation, snow days, and hanging out with friends.

In high school I looked forward to the weekend party, skiing, a bit of underage drinking, and whatever little bit of mischievous mayhem we could find.

College brought on looking forward to the weekend (and week night) party, legal drinking, girls, girls, girls, and more girls.

After graduating college and getting married I looked forward to doing well in my field of work, getting promoted, hanging out with our friends, a bit less drinking, and only one girl.

Now that I am a Dad, I find myself looking forward to something i have never…ever…looked forward too…
