Castle Construction

I'm a little late posting these but last Saturday Wyatte and Jeremy went to help dad on the construction of the castle. Wyatte had all the right gear (my dad got it for him for Christmas). He looks like a pro. We'll just make sure to keep everyone away from the saws!

Ready for SUNSHINE

We are ready for sunshine!!! Wyatte and I got our sunglasses out and prepared for summer. Too bad the weather didn't stay nice for very long, as it is now snowing today. I did infact where shorts on Saturday. We hope the sun will be back soon and this time to stay!

A day in the park

So I must confess that we couldn’t stay indoors last night. It was such a nice evening that we took the kids and walked to Murray park. We let the kids play for awhile and then walked to Noodles for dinner. It was so nice to be outside!!!

Dad's Hand Update

Dad's hand is doing better. That is not to be confused with doing good. The doctor's say that all in all considered it looks good.


For those of you who don’t know my dad had a bit of an accident with a saw on Saturday. He was cutting and it kicked back and threw his hand into the saw. He cut the side of his hand just below his pinkie on his left hand. He was actually very fortunate it didn’t do anything more. He didn’t cut any tendons but did damage all nerves on the side of his hand. He got over 300 stitches to put it back together. As for now it looks like half of the skin is taking back pretty good but the other half may be dead and will likely need a skin graph. This is a picture of it all clean out right before they stitched it back together.

World of Coca-Cola

For those who know me very well, I have always been a big coke fan (despite the fact that I haven't drank it in years). I couldn't go to Atlanta without goint to the world of Coca-Cola. I was worried that we wouldn't make it but luckily we were able to make time to go.

There was lots of collectibles, art, and even a 4-d movie. It was great!
I loved some of the modern coke art.

Mom was too tired to go with me but Dad came along.


So I got back from Atlanta on Thursday night. I went with my Mom and Dad to the ARA (American Rental Association) show. Of course, we get there just in time for their winter storm warning! Go figure, we leave the snow and it follows us. We did throw in a few fun things. We went to the CNN tour where we toured the CNN building (only because it was across from the convention center). It was actually pretty interesting. I also convinced my parents to go to the Hard Rock Cafe, which was a little out of their comfort zone. They were good sports!

Happy Birthday Dad!

Yesterday was my Dad's birthday. Anthony made sure that he held him down so he could get "spaddled" for every year old he is. Now that it is over 50 it takes a while. He was a good sport about it!

We also got to eat cake, Dad threatened to put Wyatte's head in it, I'm not sure he would have minded. Happy Birthday Dad!!!!
