Alli's first trip to Disneyland!

For the past week, Ian’s been talking about Disneyland, Disneyland, Disneyland. On Saturday, we joined up with Ruston and Jacob and took Alli on her very first visit to the parks! Just like they were with us on Ian’s first visit to Disneyland!

Ian slept fine the night before, but this video was totally Alli. Alli must have been too excited to sleep the night before because she was up every couple of hours.

Allerton Garden – 7/22/15

We’re nearing the end of our Hawaii trip. Just a day and a half left before we have to head home. We’ve tried to keep a pretty slow schedule during our visit here, but there’s one more big outing left for us.
Today we’re going to see the nearby Allerton Garden, a local botanical garden. Tickets are $45 per person, but you can save 15% if you buy them online 24 hours in advance.

The Future is here! Back to the Future day 10/21/2015 4:29pm

Growing up, there were three movie series that I really connected with. The first was Indiana Jones, the second was Star Wars, and the third was Back to the Future. I could watch those VHS tapes over and over and never get tired of them.

Of all the Back to the Future movies, my absolute favorite was Back to the Future 2. I loved seeing the potential of what the future might bring. Now that it’s 2015, I’m ready for the flying cars and hoverboards!

Introducing our newest addition! Allison Flowers!

On October 16, 2015, Theresa and I welcomed our newest little flower to the bunch.

Allison Lynn Flowers was born at 1:24pm, and weighed 8 lbs 7 oz. She was 20.5 inches long.
She is named after two important women in our lives. The “son” part of Allison is a tribute to Theresa’s mom’s middle name Sun. Her middle name Lynn is after my mother’s middle name.

Both Theresa and Alli are doing great!
