Tessa 2013 Soccer

A big stride forward this year for Tess. Last year she would barely go out on the field. And when she did, Dad would have to hold her hand the whole time. This year Tessa scored 5 goals, had a great season and most importantly a lot of fun. Here is a quick video from a game where Dad was asked to fill-in for a coach.

Vacation Back on the East Coast.

Fireflies, tractor rides and good times with family down at "The Shore." A much needed break and much needed time with family and friends. Starting off with some time at the shore with cousins, aunts, uncles and grand moms. Some fun time at Hershey Park and a good visit with great grandparents.

Tractor Ride

Visit to Great Grandparents

It's not the big rear-wheel red tractor that Pop Pop had when I was kid but there is still something so great about a tractor ride with Pop Pop. Nothing beats the warm feelings of the summer day at Mom Mom and Pop Pop's house.

Farther's Day

This is a short cut - testing out some new software from GoPro... but this was the day that I was secretly waiting for... the day that Owen and I could paddle out together. Not me pushing him out and swimming next to him... not me just watching from the beach... but me and O paddling out together sharing waves and smiles :) Next stops... Tessa, Finn and Kim :)
