It's been fairly quiet around these parts. Not a whole lot has been going on, but time flies nonetheless. My dad came to visit for 6 weeks. He was laid off from his job after nearly 40 years of service. It seems so wrong, but I suppose that's become the norm these days. There is no benefit to loyalty and long-term employment. I'm not sure what's next for my dad, but it was good to spend time with him. It would've been nice if could have stayed a little longer since he'll be celebrating his 60th birthday tomorrow. Though, we did get the family together for dinner at Texas de Brazil before he left. Not only were we celebrating his birthday, but my brother and sister's too. Mike's birthday was last month and Amy shares a birthday with my dad. We stuffed ourselves silly. The leg of lamb and beef rib were outstanding.

Speaking of birthdays, Amy and I have been in planning mode since Addison will be two on the 16th. We are throwing a Goldie and Bear party on Sunday. The party should be a riot. She shows such excitement over the simplest things, she's is going to lose her mind. Just shopping at the party store was non-stop thrills. It will be a joy filled day for sure.

Nick just finished the 3rd grade. Since his school was year around, but is now switching to 9-month school he won't have much of a summer break, but he'll surely fill his time with Xbox games, Pokemon Go and You Tube videos over the next couple weeks.

Lexi has turned six months, which is complete craziness. Our newborn days are over, but it's such fun watching her grow. She's beginning to sit up, she has a death grip and swats everything in sight, she blows raspberries and has an infectious laugh.
