Happy Saint Patrick’s… Waitaminute

“NO!” I hollered into the phone. “I WILL NOT RETURN TO MINNESOTA BEFORE SPRING’S VERDANCY!”

Despite my promise, I found myself aboard a flight to Minnesota in early March. I was returning to visit Sarah, my family, and all those friends who had crawled into their winter caves to tough out the endless barren wastes of the northern tundra.

Happy Birthday, Noah

Noah is currently taking karate — presumably so he can fight zombies hand to hand. The other day he made the following request:

They also had a party room with tiled walls and a drain in the floor. After the kids smeared cake and Cheez-its everywhere they just turned on the firehose to clean up.

Let’s Get Back To Business

I’ve been so dramatic lately that you’d think I was a theater major. I’ve been forgetting my true purpose: posting random images for you, the viewing public, to enjoy in 400 pixel glory.

Case in point, hydrangeas and a bee:

Yarrr

Noah has mad skills: his birthday party today featured pirates and a half dozen girls.

I dressed like a pirate for a while, before the costume got too hot.

It’s Family That Means The Most

Generally I try to move through life like the Buddha. I let the world flow through and around me like a river through reeds. Also, I have a jolly tummy. This weekend proved no different.

Mistake Number Two: Entertaining his bullshit arguments.

Mistake Number Three: Not flying off the handle at him sooner.
