Dylan Is Walking!

:: Tags: Awesome, Dylan, Video


10/26/2011 – Dylan is officially walking on his own!!

That’s right folks, you heard it here first… Dylan is officially walking on his own! His balance still needs a little tweaking, but for the most part I think we’re ready to send him out into the wild! Just kidding, but he is doing very well and we’re very proud of his progress to this point. Next bench mark… potty training!!

Dylan The Fireman

Dylan and Dad checking out one big Fire Truck… Oh sorry, I meant Urban Rescue Vehicle!

Arlington County Fire Department held their annual fire safety open house recently and Dylan, Julie and I made an appearance at our local fire station on 10th Street. It was a nice day for the middle of October and all the doors at the station where open, but once we got inside we realized that most of the fire engines were out on a call. Oh well, it still turned out to be a fun day and Dylan even got his picture taken with some of the fire fighters from Engine Company #4!

Dylan On The Move

:: Tags: Dylan, Family, Video


8/30/2011 – Some of Dylan’s very first steps!

Dylan is finally starting to get his ‘move’ on! Yep, he’s learning to trust his balance and starting to take some unassisted steps. At this rate he should be walking on his own by the end of the month! Although, I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not, but it will surely help with my sore shoulder.


9/28/2011 – Dylan walking between Julie and Stephanie in Bermuda

Bermuda Vacation 2011

And then Dylan says…”flip me over in an hour or if you happen to smell flesh burning.”

The more time we spend in Bermuda, the more we want to go back… go figure! It’s one of those places’s that you just can’t seem get enough of no matter how hard you try! This trip we brought along our son’s nanny Stephanie, to help look after him and give Julie and I a chance to possibly do some diving or play a couple rounds of golf. I must say, it was another beautiful week in paradise and Dylan had the beach bum look really working for himself by the time we had to leave. I’ll add some videos from our trip later, but until then here are the best-of-the-best trip photos to hold you over… enjoy!

National Harbor Marina

:: Tags: Boating, Friends, Photo

We made a Sunday afternoon run up to National Harbor for a dinner outing and when we contacted the harbor master he told us to tie up both of our boats in one slip. My reply was… “it better be a pretty deep slip, we’ll need about 65 feet worth to fit both of our boats!” Guess what… they both fit with only about a foot or so of my bow and anchor roller hanging out past the piling.

Hayes Water Park…

We are quite fortunate to have a very nice play ground and water park just down the street from our house and during the summer this becomes Dylan’s favorite place to hang out! Here are a few photos of Dylan and Julie playing at the park this past summer.

The Noodle Dance!

:: Tags: Boating, Friends, Humor, Video

Everyone knows that boating brings out the best in people… it’s a well known fact! But every once in a while, when you’re out on the water enjoying the company of good friends, the combination of sun, fun, beer and music gets the better of us… and when that happens, we all hope that someone has a video camera handy to capture the moment. Thanks Charlie for sharing… this was truly a priceless moment of the summer!
