I’ve been thinking ahead to Cal’s first birthday party and regrettably went down the Pinterest rabbit hole for invitation ideas.  I saw this cute idea and was all, yeah I can totally do that.  I now understand why they have blogs dedicated to Pinterest fails.

This is Cal at the doctors office for his 9 month checkup. If there is a light switch he will find it and his mind explodes if it turns on a fan.

The weekend in paragraph form:
—We stayed up until 1am Thursday night watching fireworks and hanging out with new friends.  It was really fun until 6am rolled around and Cal was all “HEY!!!  I”M AWAKE!!!  COME GET ME!”
—My friend from high school  was in town and we met up for brunch. It made me realize how much I miss having old friends that live in the same city.
—On Saturday, Josh and I tried out All Purpose and then did a little bar hopping like back in the old days.  No one carded us.  Not even a second glance.  Probably because we started bar hopping at 7:45.  Definitely not because we look old.
—I recently watched Lone Survivor and The Grand Budapest Hotel - both were fantastic.
—This is off topic but here are some recent reads:  
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell - Wowzer.  Crazy good.
Half a Life by Darin Strauss - Good but sad.
Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes - Couldn’t put it down.
Service by Marcus Luttrell - still reading it but very interesting. I picked this up at the airport after I saw Lone Survivor and I thought it was the book about that but I was in a hurry I didn’t quite read the cover that closely so I ended up buying the wrong one.  Anyway, its good so far.
—Buttered popcorn has got to be the worst Jelly Belly flavor ever.  I accidentally just ate one while typing this so you get to hear about it.
Ok, that’s all I got!  Jackie out.

He really should be taking naps in his crib for consistency sake but why would he do that when he knows this sucker will hold him.

I don’t like spiders but I do enjoy a good looking spider web and this spider web is super fancy.  I saw this while walking Boston and the iphone camera wouldn’t do it justice so I went back to the house, quickly got ready for work, got the big camera, and drove back to the location of this amazing spider web so I could show you all.  It was high up in the tree so I really should have brought a different lens but I thought making a third trip back might be a little much.  So this post has basically been about nothing.

Father’s Day…a little late

We went to St. Louis three weekends ago to celebrate grandpa’s 85th surprise birthday.  It was such a fun party and a great surprise for him.  An added perk was we were home to celebrate Father’s Day with our dads.  Per usual, we took a ton of photos.  Here they are!

Whenever it’s really foggy outside, josh and I always say “it’s really foggy goggle outside” because there was this bar in Boston that we frequented called the foggy goggle. Also we are idiots. Anyway, it’s really foggy goggle outside this morning.

Dad,This is way too late but I was looking for a fantastic picture of the two of us and then I finally remembered this one.  It was all fun and games until we went inside the boat and I had a million knots in my hair.  Totally worth it.  Happy (late) Father’s day.  You mean the world to me and are the best dad I could have every asked for.  I love you.
