Happy 5th Anniversary!

Happy fifth anniversary to the love of my life! Today marks the five year anniversary of our marriage, and I can honestly say that every day and every year continues to get better. I couldn't have asked for a better partner for this life adventure, and I'm very grateful to have you by my side.

I love you Lennie! Here's to another great year together!

Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July! Today our son is 4 months and 2 days old. Here he is decked out in his finest 4th of July duds:

The joke in Seattle is usually "summer comes on the 5th of July!" However, this year we were blessed with sunny and warm weather. So, after a morning of naps for the boys and working in the yard for me, we took my parents to the Carnation 4th of July festival, where we enjoyed some barbecue sandwiches and browsing a fun car show. What a great way to spend the day!

Tonight, we hope to continue to enjoy the sunshine and then join our neighbors in setting off some fireworks. Have a safe 4th everyone!

First Mariner's Game!

I can't say that we're big baseball fans here in our house, but I can say that when free tickets are dropped in our laps, we're more than happy to go and root for the home team. :)

Yesterday, we took our son to his first Mariner's game. Our seats couldn't have been better -- 13 rows from the field just past first base. Matthew was awake for the whole game, and even flirted with the ladies in the row behind us. It was also fun to walk with him throughout the ballpark, as people would stop us and tell us how cute he is. (Indeed, we think he's pretty cute!)

The Mariners played the Baltimore Orioles, and to our delight they won the game with a score of 6 to 3. Go Mariners!
