Columbus Zoo and Aquarium

The kids are checking out some sea creatures. Not sure what they are touching, but I see some starfish in the pond. Zoos are fun!

Remember when you could sit with your legs up under you? And then still get up and walk away!

I broke a toe on Sunday so I'm a little envious of flexible joints at the moment.

And yes, we're still boxing and boxing! The truck comes next week.

Ride 'em cowgirl

I can remember hours of carrying my kids around the house piggy-back. (And nieces and nephews and ...)

Kardia seems to be enjoying this as well! Be careful with those spurs!

I think as kids we had more fun pretending to be someone or pretending to do something than playing with real toys.

And yes, I do remember back that far!

The Three Musketeers

Can you say 'road trip'? These kids are ready for anything - don't they look happy!

Great parents make happy children!

(We've two weeks left before we leave and three weeks of boxing left!!)

It's Sunday

I hope you looked your best today at church.

Kardia is looking pretty great in this photo!

Only 21 years

I'm sure Janice told me they had been married 29 years, not 21 - or maybe Steve said it felt that way - hmmm ...

Anyway, I stand duly corrected - that's my mistake of the year.

29 years!!

29 blissful years of wedlock - hard to believe.

Janice is still smiling - but have you noticed Steve is rarely around? Working they say? Business elsewhere?

Even the kids seem a little off kilter. A little wacky as some might say.

Happy Anniversary!!

Whale, I mean Shark Rider

Here is the calmer side of the family. Kardia looks a little unsure about this whole thing.

The Columbus Zoo is pretty cool.

"Happy Anniversary Janice and Steve!"

I'm hiding!

Remember as a child how you thought you were hiding as long as your eyes were covered?

It would be nice if it did work that way.

Little mother

Kaireia holding a baby of a friend of the family. She looks like she is having a wonderful time and the baby doesn't care where she is - she is conked out!

Those Krazy Kleemans

Now you see why my grandkids are so wild and crazy! They come by it naturally.

Have a great week - 21 days until we leave for Tennessee - argh!!

Sunday, May 18, 2008


Kardia has learned to wave. I wish she was waving hello to her grandpa!

Saturday, May 17, 2008

Well - this is our new home in Cookeville - I can't believe I'm even saying that! The wood floors were to be finished yesterday and hopefully interior finishes, the driveway and grass will be done in the next week or so. We plan to leave San Antonio around the 9th of June and arrive and unload that week and start the Tennessee transformation - we're getting excited! Thanks for your prayers.

Mix and match

I was sitting here drawing on a house and realized I hadn't posted a photo yet for today - sorry 'bout that.

Here is my sharp dresser Neidon. He's more into comfortable - the casual look is his style.

It's Friday!

Lean back and relax - it's all downhill. The week is almost over. Kardia has it all figured out!

Back to work

Well, we are home and it is back to work.

You've probably heard by now, but hold on to your hats and sit down if not - I took a job in Cookeville, Tennessee and have spent the past few days interviewing, negotiating and getting to know my future company. It is Awesome!

We have 4 weeks to wrap up projects, pack and get ourselves up there - we could use lots of your prayers!

Call us for more details - we love you all!

I love my babies

I love my children, but who knew grand-kids would be this much fun too!

Have a great Friday and a great weekend. I have a business trip and will be gone until next Wednesday.

Big plans

It appears to be some big plans going on. Neidon is telling Kardia some story and she appears to be all ears.

Wednesday, May 07, 2008


Everything goes in the mouth! These cars keys sure taste yummy.

If she had a grandpa to play with, she wouldn't be so bored.

(Don't ask about my Spurs - I think Phoenix wore them out)

Good Monday morning

It's a new week and a busy week.

Get ready and let's see where God leads us!

Here are Neidon and his Grandma Adams.

The best dresses are the ones that spin! That's what Kaireia tells me - and she should know.

Kardia's helpers

Kardia will never know silence or the concept of being alone. Or at least for the next 16 years or so until everyone but her is in college.

But she doesn't look too upset about it!

It's May!

Neidon loves hats. Every time we went outside he had to put a hat on.

I think he is gathering leaves or sticks here. A fun hobby for boys.

I will say that he doesn't have the eye for matching colors like Kaireia, but he does look pretty comfortable - a floppy hat, pajamas and crocs on your feet - us guys like to be comfortable.
