Where Dreams Come True


Disney Trip, originally uploaded by DocUNC.

Over Thanksgiving we went to Disney World. It was their first trip and we had a great time.

Lot of fun. Lot of walking. Need a lot of sleep

Woody and Buzz are their favorite characters along with WALL-E and EVE. Isaiah was in awe of Buzz and the characters were great with the boys.

The Great Pumpkin Patch

We took Isaiah and Caleb to the Great Pumpkin Patch. They definitely had some fun. Caleb chose the biggest pumpkin he could find. Isaiah chose the bumpiest and smallest. They sat on the tractor and we went on a short hay ride. The boys loved it and we topped it all off with supper at Ruby Tuesdays. A complete day.

Just trying out something a little different with Amanda. She is always my guinea pig for my photography.

First Day of School


First Day of School, originally uploaded by DocUNC.

It was the first day of school for Caleb and Isaiah. It was a rainy and gloomy day for the first day, but the boys seemed to have a great time. Mommy, on the other hand, had a much more difficult time with seeing her babies grow up and go to school. Isaiah said that he learned to share (we'll see) and Caleb was learning some new dance moves (he likes to move it, move it).

Just let me ride, please!

Caleb was waiting "patiently" for me to take a few pictures before we went back home after riding his bike. Don't you love the face patience?

Where's The Fire?


Where's The Fire?, originally uploaded by DocUNC.

Well, we are back from vacation and we have started riding bikes in an area near our house. This fire hydrant was out there and Isaiah was playing with it so, of course, I took a few pictures.

God's Creation


God's Creation, originally uploaded by DocUNC.

We went to the Aquarium at Fort Fisher on Saturday. We rode the ferry over and Caleb, Isaiah, and especially Amanda loved the ride. At the aquarium, we played a game called "What in the world is it?" People get to guess what kind of animal a fuzzy picture is showing. The boys thought that was a cool game because they won temporary tattoos. The boys had a great time, but were exhausted by the time we left.

Under The Sea

Isaiah loved the fish at the aquarium, but loved the machine that flattens pennies for 50 cents more. Go figure.

Rachel's Dedication


Rachel's Dedication, originally uploaded by DocUNC.

Rachel had her baby dedication today. We took a ton of pictures and I will post some soon, but I had to do this one first because it reminded me so much of how Caleb looked at us when he was this age.

Even A Super Hero . . .

Has to have snack time.

We went to the Exploration Station while Caleb was at Animal Camp. Isaiah fell in love with being Superhero Isaiah, but we still had to put stopping crime on hold for a few goldfish and some apple juice.

Caleb's New Hat


New Hat, originally uploaded by DocUNC.

The other night, Caleb had a fit because he did not have a hat to wear when we went out to eat. So, I bought him a new hat from Children's Place.

He wore it for all of ten minutes. That is just the way it goes.

On The Deck


On The Deck, originally uploaded by DocUNC.

We went to eat at a new little restaurant in Elizabethtown called Paradise Cafe. The food was good (great fries) and after we ate, the kids went out on the deck. I had my camera along with me and decided to take a few pictures of Isaiah while we were outside.

Time Management


Time Management, originally uploaded by DocUNC.

We took a few shots in the backyard before going out for dinner. We were waiting on Momma, so we used our time wisely.

He wanted to have the leaves in the shot with him.

I can't believe how fast he is growing up. Five in February. He is not looking like my baby any more.

This was a shot of the children watching the fireworks. Caleb is on the end with the camo shorts (He has my ears). It was a great night and a lot of fun with friends. Happy 4th again!

We will celebrate our 7th year of marriage on Monday, but we were High School Sweethearts since 1995! I love my wife!

All this time and she has not killed me . . . YET!

My Dynamic Bride


My Dynamic Bride in HDR, originally uploaded by DocUNC.

After taking the pictures of Amanda and her sister, I asked Amanda to take some pictures by the old barn in the field. I was playing around with a new photo technique and this is what I got. We had to crawl across a ton of briers, but it was worth it, i think.

Mud Slinging

Isaiah was having a blast playing in the mud.

With highs of 95 to 100, we have made use of the water hose and sprinkler for an afternoon cool down.

We stopped by KK in Myrtle Beach, SC. Isaiah and I could probably eat about 6 in a minute. SO, SO, GOOD.

That is such a great business plan - Turn on a light and people stop and buy doughnuts.

Rainy Day

Caleb wanted to play in the rain with his boots and new CARS umbrella, so I took a few shots before the down pour. Not a great image, but Amanda loves this one.

Catching Up







The image of Amanda was one from Easter that she loved so I thought it would be nice to post.

We bought a Tee-Ball set for the boys. They played with it all of two minutes, but at least I got a shot of Isaiah looking like one mean pitcher. Hey Batta, Batta, Swing, Batta.

We also took the boys to pick their own strawberries. That was a ton of fun. Both boys loved the farm. We probably should have weighed Isaiah before and after because he ate more than he picked. Caleb was the collector. He wanted to pick every one of the strawberries so he would have them all. He definitely wanted the perfect one. This shot of Caleb was the one he considered to be the best strawberry. So proud.

GQ





I finally was able to get Caleb to pose for a picture without any more gray hairs popping out all over my head. He looks so cool, but too grown up for Daddy. I like how he was making the "hang loose" sign with his hand in the top picture. That was his idea of how to put his hand in his pocket.

Sittin' In The Grass



Isaiah is such a fun child. He will laugh at anything. I think for this picture I was singing a rousing rendition of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Monkey." Changing that one word gets belly laughs at my house.

Red Hot



Amanda is gorgeous. This is a picture I took yesterday and has probably become one of my favorite images of Amanda.

Playin' In The Grass



Isaiah and I were playing in the backyard after his haircut yesterday and I took a few pictures. He is such an easy going guy and laughs hysterically at almost anything silly.

BASS (As In Guitar, Not The Fish)


BASS is what is written on his shirt, but everyone on my photography site has asked what this picture has to do with fishing. Anyway, this is one of my handsome young men.

I need more pictures of Isaiah. We go through cycles. Caleb will let me take some pictures for a while, then Isaiah for a while. Lately, Caleb has been agreeable.

Amanda



Just playing around with the camera while the kids were napping.

My Boy Is Four!




We recently celebrated Caleb's fourth birthday. We had a really great time at his Dinosaur Party. Many of his friends came to the Exploration Station and had cake and other goodies. We ended the party with a Dino Egg Dig. Sand got everywhere, but I think the kids really liked the surprise of finding an egg buried in the sand with cool dinosaur treats. Unfortunately, I think Isaiah believes all dinosaur eggs had fruit snacks inside.
