VPT FTW!

Joey, James, Shannon, Jon, Paul, Karl, Alicia, Caroline and sometimes William, Cherish and Sarah: We love you guys! Thank you so much for a couple of final get-togethers. It was so great to see you all again and realise how much you’ve grown and how much you’re continuing to grow. We are proud of each…

Abi Update

Just a few notes for those who are starting to get curious about Baby #2. We’re pretty much ready: the hospital bag is packed, my time-off paperwork is signed, so now its just a waiting game. Here’s some other notes (for the squeamish: medical details follow) She is still due March 20th, but we’ve been…

Last Night on the Mass Pike

We loved Boston! We totally should have gone there sooner, and more often. If New York is a big city, Boston is like a huge village. It feels nothing like downtown NYC. The buildings are an odd mix of modern and classic architecture. The sidewalks are frequently coblestone. The roads are impossible to drive on,…

Live from Foxboro

We had a beautiful afternoon in Boston, despite our limitations. Traveling with a baby always adds to the challenge, and Nic’s limited to a waddle, and I hurt my back on Friday (of course, because I always hurt my back when we go somewhere.) So we didn’t have very ambitious goals going in. We hit…

Love Like Rockets

Wow, thinking back ten years ago to when we first started dating I don’t think I would have guessed that I would be living in another country, traveled half way around the world, have one kid and another on the way and been married for six and a half years. But if you asked Jon…

New Banner!

I really like this one, although I’ll admit its a little abstract. Make sure you clear your cache or force a refresh if you don’t see it. The tag line is from an Angels & Airwaves song… all of their songs make me want to create something… I’ve also added a section to the pictures…

Someone you could lend a hand, in return for grace

It has begun! Monday morning the movers came by to inventory our stuff for a quote on moving costs. We’re nervously awaiting that figure, but are guessing its going to cost around $3000. When we moved here we had 3500 lbs worth of stuff and it cost $1800. 2 years later we have a baby…

To the VPT

Thank you guys so much for the video. It was a wonderful bookmark for this chapter in our lives — one we will always look back on fondly, with you guys in so many of our memories. We are so very proud of each of you, and how you’ve grown in the past year and…

Embracing My Inner Geek: Part 3 – Education

I had another topic in mind for part 3, but a reader asked a pretty interesting question in response to part 2 that got me thinking. It was so good a question, in fact, that I’ve spent most of my idle CPU cycles this morning formulating a response: How do you think someone who did…

I think we'll go to Boston

Scratch that last post, cause we have a better plan. It turns out that Boston is closer to us that New York City is — driving distance, anyway. We’ve never been, though, because every time someone comes to visit they want to go NYC. No one will go to Boston with us, and we haven’t…
