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.

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.

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!


  1. Oh, Patty, cute pictures... I'm sorry to hear about the nursing. You are a wonderful mother. we are going through that transition in our house, too. They are growing up on us! hang in there

  2. Cute, cute, cute! I always love your pictures!

  3. super sweet post with pictures. something so neat getting to watch our children experience things for the first time (things that we take for granted) like seeing and petting animals at the zoo. looks like yall had a great time!!
