Well, everybody had so much fun with the "Who The Hell Are You People?" thread that I thought I'd try something similar.

Everyone loves their kids and loves to show them off, so let's show off our kids! I'll start it off.

Hello everybody, sorry so late to the show, but my daddy's been busy working and missed this post the first go around. I'm my parents first kid! I turned 1 yrs. old last Sunday, November 9th. I've had a great first year, my daddy takes me on lots of adventures. No climbing yet, but my daddy promises he'll show me "The Way" to complete and utter blissfulness someday soon, whatever that means?! Thx. for letting me post my pictures, you all seem like very nice people, maybe someday we can get together and I can play and climb with your kids...bye bye!

My oldest, Hannah at her high school graduation last spring with Papa:


She's now at UCSD and livin' the college life (with her cute sister Molly... not mine, but her mom's; Hannah has a total of four siblings and counting all together!):


But wait, there is a boy too. The amazing Colin. A regular outdoorsman just like Daddy. Messing around in Rock Creek this summer:


Costco is actually a playground, you know:


Going local in Seminyak, Bali. First discovery of lollipops:


Best buddies... are we not cute or what?


Yup, this definitely confirms it!

good place to post this adventure, although we're all four years older.

nice little family climb, but this family likes to sleep late and we didn't quite make the rim by dark. nice cellphone contact with mom down below from that little ledge, nice mild august night, a little family spooning.

nick was especially mad about my insisting that he use his souvenir college newspaper for insulating when he began shivering, but they supplied another copy when they learned the whole story. nick was also ticked about not getting back down for a promised sit-down dinner at the ahwahnee. nick now lives in manhattan--but we get along great.

as them kids grow all around im left standing unmoved though astounded
time's reference fades
and i cannot pray tell if what has happened is not the
exact same circumstance as all that might transpire.

im still in my being.
the world upon me is dynamic and explosive.
i feel a confluence of nevers upon me.
so im crooked a little,
shouldering all these pasts and futures.
the ponderables and the confusions (confusions echo)
consumate in me brain, and a reality is borne.
it is as though i am the now.
f*#kin cliche as it is,
littered with wee-passive voices.

not mine voice it was arrested long ago.
too many infractions upon infrastructures.
silence is my statement.

Our daughter Meaghan recently took a position teaching middle school math at the Denver School of Science and Technology. My wife and I took her out a few weeks back to help her look for apartments.

But first, we did a little X-C skiing with cousin Audrey outside the Indian Peaks Wilderness.

Then made our way down the gulley, took a hard right and went up the Northeast Buttress of Higher, topping out at 3:30pm. We were pretty tired at the end of that, 24 pitches of super quality, and some gully mileage...Awesome Day!

Now he is randy with good grades and one girl.


Ah. A mother's dream.

Thanks. My kids humble me. Strange as it seems, my munchkins are my mentors and role models. How cool is that?

Someday I'll get around to scanning photo's of my ancestors. I have a photo of my great,great, grandparents which would knock the socks off any other photo showing toughness.
He was born in 1799, in PEI Canada, they were both around 100, when the photo was taken--talk about tough people!

^^^^^oh she's so lovely, Sully. I'm facing that passport-in-hand at the end of the month when Alex leaves for Germany for 6 months of study. I'm really starting to feel the ache of what it will be like with him so far away.

Today my Dad's 91st birthday falls on Thanksgiving…and the synchronicity does not go unnoticed by me. My Dad was/is part of the Greatest Generation. He served his country well after graduation from the Naval Academy. He lost his beloved younger brother in WWII. He buried his 27 year old wife and was left with 3 children under the age of 7. My two older brothers and I were raised by him when the word "Single Parent" didn't really exist. Barely 15 years after losing our Mom he buried my oldest brother, a Vietnam casualty. He never remarried until we had all graduated from high school. When I asked him "why", he said he saw our Mom's face when he looked at each of us. When we were little he would take us fishing. I hated the slimy feel of putting the worm on the hook. He or my brothers would bait my hook. Finally one day he said if I wanted to go fishing I needed to bait my own hook. That metaphor has stuck with me for my whole life as guidance for being independent and the importance of making our own way.
Last year after a colonoscopy the doctor said to him "everything is fine, see you in 10 years". Ya know, I think it could happen….even though he's 3000 miles away I just can't conceive of knowing he isn't on the other end of a phone call.

An old friend of mine, subsequently one of my TacoBrethren, said the most beautiful thing to me one day while skeezin. His wife had just given birth to their daughter and when I asked how the new little family was doing, this proud father looked at me and said, "I never thought it was possible to be in love with two women at the same time."

I'll never forget that.

It, forever, changed the way I looked at this guy.

VERY SWEET!
