When you have a baby you become obssesed with sats. Jake had his 2 month Dr. visit today and I couldnt wait to find out height and weight. He weighed in at 12.4 lbs (54%) and was 24 inches long (79%). Basically he his long and lanky/ tall and skinny. So far he is built to be a runner or swimmer. After taking a good look at his feet I say swimmer.

For the Birds (ducks)

I was supposed to just have a yard put in but I got a pond for no additional charge.

I would say too much rain is better than the alternative.

National Grilling Day

My first Fathers day. I got to take Jake to his first bike race and watch Jojo do everthing he could as a solo rider to animate the race. He succeeded with one lap to go.

As a recap, last weekend we drove as big happy family 600 miles one way to Thief River Falls, MN to visit my grandma or Jakes great grandma. It was important for me for the 2 of them to meet. 1246 mileslater mission accomplished.

Oh yeah, back to fathers day. Its so cool. I am loving being a dad. Jake is growing like crazy. He is starting to get a couple little rolls but he still is mostly lanky and tall. He is so cute I cant stand it.

Thats Not a Knife

We go for bike rides.

I have a cousin who goes to war.

Between deployments he decided to go for a bike ride with a couple friends.

Its not just a bike ride.

He is riding across a continent.

Starting in Adelaide and riding to Darwin, Australia.

Here is a pic of him standing in the ocean with his Surly Long Haul Trucker.

Good luck Andy!

You make a 'cuz proud, and not for riding a bike across another country because you protect this one.
