Coming Attraction at the Shock Circus

Oops! We did it again :) Another Shock baby is on the way! Our bundle-to-be will be arriving some time around May 18th, 2012. Fletch is very excited to be a big brother. When we ask if he wants a little brother or little sister, he says "Sister, OK" or "Brother, OK" depending on which one we say last. In either case, we know he will be a great big brother.

Let me (Daddy) add that I guarantee this will be the last one. :)

Fletch's Nirvana

This might make you feel old, but the legendary rock band Nirvana's album Nevermind turns 20 this month. If you're familiar with that album, you know there is a naked baby swimming on the cover. In sort of the same vein, below are pics of Fletch, sans clothes, rocking out on guitar. The anniversary and pics are coincidental. I wanted to share them because they are awesome and to give a shout out to on of my favorite bands and to make you feel old. I think the first two would make a great album cover.

Farm Festival

On Saturday we went to our annual first activity of fall, the Cox Farm Festival. We're so cool, we went on the preview weekend. "Cool" in this context means we're on the mailing list. The weather was great. It was cool and overcast compared to last year when it hot. Like last year,
we went on the slides:

pet farm animals:

go on a hay ride and eat kettle corn:

play on the playground:

and take a family portrait:

See the entire set of pictures here. We look forward to the festival every year. It's become a family tradition. We made it through all the fun without misplacing a shoe this time. :)
