Spin


Nila loves all things that Spin and Jonas loves all things that make him fly. Every time we go to a playground Nila could spin on a tire-swing for a hour.

Ah the two oldest.


Before leaving I told them that I wanted a photo together, after manhandling them around a bit and getting Nila to put her arm around Jonas things were not going good, I finally gave up after a couple of minutes and started to take some photos. I think their 17yr old and 15yr old personalities are shining through. (God Help Us)

More Beach

One of the last days at the beach.






Jonas getting ready for the Heisman.

I took Jonas and Nila over to the beach today, Jonas loves to jump in the waves but never closes his mouth because he is laughing so much and ends up swallowing a bunch of water. He did finally start to get the hang of it by the end of the day.

Nila Hits the Road.



So with your first child you never really know what you are doing (how could you). Last weekend I was out with some of the other guys and kids on the street and all the kids are riding bikes and they think Jonas can ride without his training wheels. He says that he does and I take them off. He went about four houses without me touching him then slowed down and said "Daddy, I want put my training wheels back on."

So this weekend Nila said that she wanted to give it a try. I took Friday off work and Nila came into the kitchen with all her rollerblading pads on and said she was ready to go, we got ready and went outside, and she was off and ridding the first try. She could even use her brakes and stop without any issues, a half hour later we went around the block and a half hour after that she went around herself. I think she went around our block 15 times yesterday and about 10 times already today. She loves the freedom of the open sidewalk.

Jonas kept telling me.. "Go when I say beep." "BEEP". He loved to fly high.



Nila kept saying she wanted to go, then would go, get freaked out and then come and ask to go again. Love the look on her face.



Lots of grand kids.


We had a great day with Aunts, Uncles and cousins.
