He squeezed his hamburger...?

This is one of the funniest "internet videos" I have seen in a very long time. If you're looking for a reason to laugh out loud - this is certainly it!!

Christy Lake's first Valentine's Day

Mother and Daughter

Grandy and Granddaughter

Christy Lake had a great Valentine's Day! She received all sorts of cards from family members (in fact, she got more mail yesterday than Christy and I LOL!). Isn't she cute in her sweetheart outfit!

Flight of the Hopper - unique 'round the world adventure

A great friend of mine sent me the URL to this quite unique website detailing an around-the-world trip in a virtual Pilatus PC-12. You see, the object of this trip around the globe is to sample some of the world's best beer. It's all in good fun, and to be taken lightheartedly. They appear to be spending quite some time in the European theatre - must be some number of quality brews there. I wonder when they will reach the west coast of the U.S.? I hope that they stop in Seattle, WA - the Red Hook Brewery is a great stop! I guess I'll just have to keep posted...

It's been a great week!

Well, after taking time off for the birth of Christy Lake, I'm headed back to work tomorrow. It has been great being able to be around and help Christy out as we get acquainted with the little one in the house. She has really been great all week. She gets anywhere from 3 to 4 hours of sleep at a time, generally more so at night - which is a blessing. The only times she is really fussy is when she's: getting her diaper changed, taking a bath (well, at least getting a rag-bath), getting hungry, or getting her clothes changed. Two of the three I believe it's because she doesn't like to be cold - neither do I - so I don't blame her for being a bit upset at all! Usually her fits don't last very long - she's very quiet 95% of the time. Here she is taking a nap in her bassinet. Doesn't she look adorable!!
