Tried different poses and positions
Eventually, did this... 
It says so much... Mostly, that he loves the outdoors and is thankful.  Enjoy the simple moments.

Birthday Week

Yep... I said it (again).  It's Birthday Week.  What is Birthday Week, you ask?  Well, it's the way we celebrate birthdays at  my house.

Mostly it is simple stuff like choosing the radio station we listen to in the car, what we watch if we all watch TV and at least some of the dinners we eat during the week.

As a bonus, my mom and I  always have a slice of birthday pie, light a candle and she sings Happy Birthday at the exact time that I was born... 10:02 pm.  So, at least at this age... I get to stay up later for dessert. :)

Flag Football

You can't really see me in these photos at all.   I'm the guy in the back holding the team sign.  We were the Hog Riders.  Standing next to Patrick Omameh, who at the time played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  He stopped by with a friend to say hi to the kids-- such a cool guy-- oh yeah, he is huge!

The lesson is that the memory isn't in the picture. The memory is in the experience.  I was helping my mom's boss coach his son's flag football team at the YMCA in Palm Harbor.  The kids were fun and frustrating, but aren't we all.  It was a great season and I learned that I love to share my love of football with other people.
