Week in Michigan

Warning for the bandwidth-challenged! This is a long post with a lot of media content. Hope no one's seeing this over dial-up. Posts like these make you wish you had gone for the faster DSL plan! :-)

Here we start with Tish's grandma's 80th birthday party.

The cake was pretty good!

Now on to grandpa and grandma's...

Fathers be good to your daughters

Here is such a poignant reminder of how powerful a father's influence (or lack of) is on his daughter's life. For an entertainment show, watch how obvious the painful undercurrents are. I haven't been able to stop thinking about this since I saw it...

Happy Birthday Armaan!

Well.. sorta. For sure, happy birthday to the big, little boy! But I don't have any celebratory pictures to show yet. His birthday party is yet to happen. So stay tuned.

Tish's sister and her two boys visited us over the weekend of the fourth. So we spent some time with them. Then that weekend we drove up to Michigan for Tish's grandma's 80th birthday party. That's why we couldn't do anything for Armaan on his actual birthday. Still, he got lots of extra love to make up for it!

Skylar's just as happy now to hang out with Armaan

Never too early to start training to clean

Armaan at the Highland Fair on the 4th - you did all this for me?!!

Some day these bars will not be able to hold me

Check out the little guy!
