Bring the Heat

Summer time has finally arrived in Wisco and it is going to be awesome. Nights on the patio, beverage in hand and Cullen, what more could one ask for. Cullen is really excited, we have introduced him to the beach. He's digging it, literally. In addition, he headed up to the Dickinson family compound this week for a pool date with his friends. Mom took the day off of work and joined in the fun. Dad has been playing some ball with Cullen. I hold him, place his hands on the bat and then we swing, he then runs around picking up the balls and then brings them back, yelling "ball, ball, ball". It's going to be a great next few months. He is really starting to develop quite the personality and his interests are growing by the day.

PS...sorry for the crappy post. I know that you have all grown accustomed to my witty and creative style. I was forced into this one tonight by the Mrs and as you all know you can't force greatness. :)

Beach Baby.

All for Annie!

We spent the weekend up at Wowee's cabin on Big Fish Lake. It was Annie's bachelorette party weekend. As you can see, a good time was had by all - especially Annie!

Life is busy. Life is good.

Cullen has been on the move and so have Mom and Dad. We've been to Chrissy and James' wedding in Green Lake, WI, Lisa went to work meetings in New Orleans for five days and we all spent last weekend in Minneapolis. This coming weekend, Dirk will be attending Drew's bachelor party in Chicago (Twins vs. Cubs) and Lisa will be up at Wowee's cabin for Annie's bachelorette party. But really, Cullen's "busy-ness" is the most interesting kind. He is always on the move. Cullen loves running from room to room, playing chase around the kitchen and taking out every toy in his basket before he finds the one that most interests him. Cullen has so much fun playing outside and usually cries when we bring him in (a trait that my mother says he inherited from me). We can now understand him saying "ball", "duck" and "dog". It's amazing to see that he is no longer a baby. Each day we watch him absorb and learn about the world around him. He truly is amazing.
