MUMC Pumpkin Patch 2009

It's that time of year again, time to head over to the MUMC Pumpkin Patch. It was just me and the girls this afternoon, Sarah was busy working with her mother at the annual MUMC Craft Fair (in the church annex buildings behind the pumpkin patch). Unlike last year, the weather was great. It was actually cool outside and felt like Fall. Still warm enough for shorts... ;)

The girls picked out some great pumpkins and I will have my work cut out for me next weekend when it comes time to carve them all out.

HEAL First Coast Zoo Walk for Autism

This past Sunday we went to the Jacksonville Zoo to participate in the HEAL First Coast Zoo Walk for Autism. If you weren't not aware, April is Autism Awareness month. We met up with the group from Caitlyn's school "Little Star Walkers" and spent the morning supporting a great cause. The HEAL! Foundation (Healing Every Autistic Life!) is a local foundation serving the Greater Jacksonville Area and is also a supporter of Little Star Center of Jacksonville. It was an early start to a Sunday morning, but the weather was great and everyone had a great time walking the zoo.

Chris' Birthday Dinner

Recently I celebrated yet another Birthday and the sad realization I am getting older. To celebrate the occasion we invited the group "The Gang" out to one of our favorite places, Maggiano's Little Italy, for a nice family style dinner. We had a great time and ate way too much food.

I look back over this past year of my life and I am amazed at what has taken place and the progression of everything. I can look back and smile, I am grateful for my family and my friends. Thank you all for a great year.

New York City 2009 Visit

This past January Laura & I traveled up to New Jersey for my Dad's Birthday and to visit with family. We had a great time and it was a nice to spend some one on one time together.

On Saturday we made a trip into the City. My Dad, Laura, & I grabbed the train in New Brunswick and made our way to New York Penn Station. We arrived in the City and made our way up through Times Square and then over to the FOX News Studio.

Next stop was Rockefeller Center to see the Christmas Tree. The Tree was beauiful, this one actually came from Hamilton New Jersey.

Afterwards we made our way further uptown to the World of Disney Store. Shortly upon arriving, we found out Cinderella was going to be visiting. We quickly made our way upstairs and Laura was able to say hello and take some pictures.

At this point we were ready for some food before heading back downtown. The next stop was the M&M World store in Times Square where Laura picked out various crazy colors of M&M's (pink, purple, lavender, & turquiose).

We proceeded to make our way back to Penn Station, grabbing a pretzel for Laura along the way, and hopped the train back to Jersey.

On Sunday we made a trip out to see my sister's & brother-in-law's and Laura's cousins for some ice skating and dinner. The kids had a great time and it was nice having a chance to catch up with my sister's.

Happy New Years everyone!!!

With everything that was going on over the holidays and getting this year off to a start, we have been pretty busy and it seems like there is never enough time to do what would be the simplest of things, like post a Blog entry...

We celebrated New Years Eve with some of our closest friends once again at P.F. Chang's. It's starting to become a staple for us. This was the second year in a row at one of our favorite places to eat.
