i just got back from a couple days with the smith family up at a little vacation they were having at a cabin on a lake in northern wisconsin. this is basically my girlfriend’s sisters and their kids, and all together she has 6 nieces and 1 nephew. needless to say i have a lot of catching up to do with only 1 nephew myself! but they’re a pretty cute bunch and they even wore some tie-dye shirts that i made back when i was 18 (which believe me, was a LONG time ago!). so we had a little photo session and had some fun with it too. some of the kids are pretty darn cute and some of them are a little goofy… i’ll let you be the judge.
i consider myself to be a pretty lucky person sometimes. part of that is because of how close i am to my friends. i actually have a close-knit group of 7 friends that goes back to junior high. one of them is my friend john whom i met in 7th grade history class, 1st hour, in my first year of junior high.
boy how time flies! john’s now married like most of my friends and not too long ago he and his wife had their first child, nathan. they currently live in maine, but we’re doing our best to get them to move back closer to home. but they were in town this week so we had a chance to do a little family photo shoot for them this week.
just four days ago on march 3rd, 2009 (square root day!!), i became an uncle for the first time!! i have just one awesome sister, and after several years of trying, she and her husband finally had their first baby, gavin. gavin was born a few weeks early and because the labor took a little longer than expected, he had to spend just a few days in the NICU at st. paul children’s hospital, but he was completely healthy all the while. but i was there just after he was born to capture some of his first moments with us. heeeeeeeeeeere’s gavin!
