  • Aiden (6.5): Yeah, and selfish right now too.


  • Robert: That pizza over there has bacon on it.
  • Aiden: Yeah, it is pretty good.


  • Robert: Aiden, you're gonna like this steak.
  • Aiden: Does it have bacon on it?

Is It A Shovel?

  • Sarah: Hey Aiden, I got you a surprise while we were on our beach trip!
  • Aiden: What is it?
  • Sarah: It's a surprise, but it's so cool I think I want to use it too!
  • Aiden: Is it a shovel?

It wasn't a shovel. It was a drawing book. But a shovel would be useful.

Happy Anniversary To Us

It was the 3rd, to be exact. We went to the beach, had a great stay and ate a lot of fresh crab. Sarah looked great at dinner and I just did my best to keep up. We're very happy to have made it to three years and are really looking forward to another year and many more beyond that.
