The new GMC Acadia is here. After 3 hrs at the dealer and not paying the down payment (their fault and they didn't pay it for us), we got home.

Allison visit

B and J went the Titans game, so Bec and I watched the kids, all day long. We started with legos at 5:30am, while B was asleep on the couch. J, M, and I had a good time playing legos while everyone else slept.

S at lunch

M pre-passing out.

M almost passed out.

M walked to his sleeping bag and literally fell over and was asleep within 30 sec.

Asheville, NC trip

Bec and I spent a long weekend in Asheville, NC. We visited the Biltmore Estate, ate at some awesome restaurants, drove parts of the Blue Ridge Parkway and hiked a little. We also got to visit some of my friends in town, which are our friends:)

Pics in no particular order.

August through October 2010

So I am a little slow with the blog. At least I've never practiced witch craft and am running for public office. Pics mostly in some order from most recent to older. I didn't incl pics from my Calif trip since those are online already.

Nick and his e-collar. He's licking the stitches and I'm not letting that happen.
