About Me

Plano, TX
Our first child, Caroline, was born June 5th, 2009. She has completely rocked our world. Patty stays home to take care of Caroline full time. Reagan is a computer programmer at PFS Web. We met Jan 9th 2004. Patty's best-friend from high school, Dixie, slyly matched us up. In July of 2004 we moved to Allen, TX for work. We married Oct 29th, 2005 and moved into our current house in Plano the following April. We also have two furry children named Annabell and Oliver. We love to travel. Throughout our marriage we have taken some incredible trips. We haven't gone anywhere with Caroline (other than Tulsa) yet but we're planning a family trip this summer.

One more...

One more bluebonnet picture just because this is to precious not to share.


Boones in Bluebonnets

This evening we took family pictures in a field of Bluebonnets. Bluebonnets are the Texas state flower, and it's a tradition here to take pictures in them. Most of the pictures had telephone lines and power lines in the background. I edited them out of most of the pictures.

Didn't get around to editing this one


Ft. Worth Zoo

Last Friday we took a day trip to Ft Worth. We had lunch with Uncle John (Patty's Dad's brother) and Aunt Marilyn. Caroline was fussy during lunch so we didn't think she would last long at the zoo. We were wrong. She loved the zoo; looking at all the people and animals. The Ft Worth Zoo is very cool. If you haven't been I highly recommend it.

Brought the tripod and tried taking a family picture. Didn't turn out that great.

Love that sequence. I think this is when she noticed the elephants.

Eating a banana the way moneys do!

Caroline's favorite thing at the zoo was the Komodo Dragon. She watched and talked to that guy for a long time.

We thought she would like to sit on the Komodo statue but she got freaked!

Getting comfortable with the statue.

Calling the white tigers

Feeling a snake skin

Riding the carousel

I feel bittersweet about this but Caroline has decided she doesn't want to nurse anymore (other than 1st feeding in the morning). Our little baby is getting so big!


Treasures in the attic

I'm not sure Reagan considers this a treasure or not. Last night we were putting some of Caroline's baby things in our garage attic for storage. Our house has 2 attics and this is one we haven't stored anything in yet. Reagan found some things in the attic that past owners had left behind. One of the items was a vintage mid-century highchair. I love retro things and thought this was awesome. Today I cleaned it up and let Caroline eat lunch in it. She thought it was pretty awesome too.


Easter Fun

Our neighborhood hosted an Easter Egg hunt last weekend. It was great to watch Caroline play with a plastic filled egg for the first time. She was excited and full of wonder when she opened her first egg and found Goldfish snacks inside. One of the neighbors dress in an Easter Bunny outfit and passed out treats to the kids. Caroline thought he was really cool. I think she thought he was a talking stuffed animal. Thursday we had a couple baby friends over to play and celebrate the holiday. Sunday we went to church than Nana and Papa's house for lunch. Of course there are pictures below.
