  • Hey Jude

    We were sitting in our living room, I was laying on the couch, nursing an owie, Jude was on his stool, watching TV. I said, “Hey, Jude.” Not another word. When he saw that I was taking pictures he automatically started throwing poses. What a ham. 🙂

    We head over to see Bradley’s grandparents quite often, whenever we are driving by. On this particular day, my darling husband brought along his guitar and played them his latest. His other fans brought their spirit to the event as well, swirling with energy, exuberance and love around and around their daddy as he played […]

  • Stars of Track and Field

    On March 5th, I made my way into the runner’s world. It was a 12 minute slow-poke down the block about half a mile before my lungs about burst from their ribs and my thighs burned. But it felt good. So I went again. And again. And again. The days stretched into weeks, the weeks […]

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
