Kacy: aka Skidder because she slid face-first down an asphalt driveway when she was 2 or 3 years old. She’s kick-ass. Super mom, awesome sister, daughter and friend – oh, and she works full-time. I am not sure how she does it. Did I mention she is a fabulous baker, beautiful and a seamstress?
Andrew: Talented amateur-photographer, ever-loving, best-ever brother-in-law of mine. Andrew is a calm and patience father, compassionate husband, and Blazer super-fan.
Max: Three-and-a-half year old rock-star. Born very prematurely, gave us all a fright, and now an energetic, fun-loving, and pretty-darn-smart little guy who started racing cyclocross last year on his Scoot and is sure to CRUSH all the big kids now that he has a pedal bike.
Jude: Eight-month-old bundle of joy and my god-son. I watched the birth of this little angel last July and feel that, somehow, we might just be kindred-spirits. Jude is almost walking, loves bubble baths and has blue eyes that are sure to break some hearts.
The weekend: A complete and utter whirlwind of excitement and smiles.

|Surprise: Totoro lives in Bend. Totoro is the boy’s favorite storybook character – straight from Japanese Anime. So worldly.|
|Baby-sitting, bath-time, and good-night books.|
A brilliant weekend reminding me how fortunate I am to have such an amazing family; full of love, understanding, and smiles.
