time is not on my side.

 like every other parent ever on the face of the planet, 
i lament the passing of time.
when did my kids get so old?  how did they get so old?
my oldest just turned ten and my baby is only 2.5 months shy of 1 year.
it's just not fair.  not any of it.
oh, but these kids.
i enjoy each and every day i get to spend with them.
what would i do without any one of them?
damn, i'm lucky.

st. patrick's day block party 2013

well, another st. patrick's day party come and gone.  
this year the pub was john mulligan's and pete outdid himself my making a guinness tap built into the bar.  i still can't help but wonder what people think when they drive down our street and see our carport has become a pub...
it was the usual guinness, green beer, bounce houses and corn hole, but we also added rita's ice custard and burgers amore food trucks to the mix.  we ended the night with the always fabulous vinyl station (and possibly some neighbors doing keg stands...). everyone had a great time, especially our little dot who seems to be a party animal.  we had to drag her off the dance floor and put her to bed finally.  

oh, these kids...

{father and son bonding over vinyl station's that man}
 until next year!
