Happy 6th Birthday Alex!

Happy 6th Birthday Alex!

This year, we thought we’d give our growing boy more of a say in his birthday celebration. The immediate feedback that we got from him was that we don’t make it “our” party, rather he just wanted a few of “his” friends and just those from school, and NO parents;  After weeks of back to… + Read More

Buckley gets skunked!

Buckley gets skunked!

If you’ve never experienced a skunk-spray-assault up close and personal, here’s how it goes… Last week our brave little guardian and protector Buckley embarked on a valiant effort to keep us safe from our neighborhood skunk.  Fast forward a week and, after several tomato baths, a few vinegar baths, etc…our house and our dog STILL… + Read More

Little things you might not know about us #2

This was the first car we owned together, we called it the Walnut. We took it on many adventures. This was shot in the Whanganui Inlet, on the South Island of New Zealand at the very end of a long bumpy road – we were the only ones there. We live a simple, but adventurous… + Read More

Things you may not know about us: #1

Over the past so many years, our lives have followed an extremely non-linear path – although it seems perfectly straight to us!  This new column will provide entertaining insight into our zig-zagging history while allowing us to dig through our own image archives.

Returning home after being away from our son for almost 17 days – we have a hard time letting him out of our sights these days.  Alex is such a good kid; SO interested in everything and wants desperately to accompany us to a wedding so “I can help you Mom and Dad!”  We were… + Read More

On moments…

This image was shot by Dennis on his Rolleiflex.  I found it as I was going through the 51,000 personal images we have shot over the past two years. With such fast digital cameras these days, we find ourselves shooting more and more and we end up with thousands of photographs.  I appreciate the fact that… + Read More

Dedication to my wife

Dedication to my wife

Jaime is a truly unique person and I am sure I’m among the luckiest of husbands in the entire world to have her as my wife.  There’s nothing she can’t do or at least teach herself to do and have mastered in 48 hours.  When we first met 12 years ago, she was just finding… + Read More

Have her back by nap time!

Have her back by nap time!

Thanksgiving weekend provided us with a glimpse into our future…and I’m freaked out!  Magnolia is still a bit too young to drive her mini-electric-F150 but Alex was super-keen to have a go and take her on a tour of the neighborhood.  After a bit of a learning curve which involved executing a 3 (actually 10)-point… + Read More

Our family continues to grow!

Our family continues to grow!

This morning Jaime leapt out of bed at 6:30 which is, for anyone who knows her well, very rare.  I saw it coming though and knew she’d be dying to know if one of our new hens had laid an egg.  I was, of course hopeful for an egg or two, but also that a… + Read More
