“Dylan enjoying the warmth of the afternoon sunshine at the pool” – Tucker’s Point, Bermuda

Here is ¬†collection of pictures my wife and I have taken over the past year of our precious son Dylan. We post these mainly for our family and friends who can’t always be around to visit with us on a regular schedule. My mother says it’s nice to be able to just click on my site and see her grand son when ever she wants. It’s almost like being here… and as you can tell, Dylan has done some growing this past year. We all had a great year and look forward to another fantastic one in 2016!

Dylan ready and eager for his swim lesson to begin! – Arlington, VA.

We have been taking Dylan to swimming lessons at our local pool now for several years and it is really starting to pay off! He has so much more confidence when he is in the water and can now swim the entire length of the kids pool without touching the bottom. For parents who are avid and active scuba divers, this is a huge relief to know that he will one day want to join us under the ocean. He is now working on his free stroke and learning the back stroke.

Julie and Dylan in their matching ‘Sully’ costumes! – Arlington, VA.

Here is my collection of pictures from this years Halloween festivities. We started off the fun with the annual RS Halloween costume parade and classroom parties at Dylan’s school. Than Dylan decided to change costumes for the neighborhood evening trick-or-treating. I was even persuaded to join in the fun with one of Mikes favorite costumes… Scooby Doo!! The whole family had a ton of fun and my parents always enjoy spending time with Dylan and seeing all the neighborhood kids and their cute costumes.

Dylan and I during the Dad’s Hot Lunch Event! @RS – Washington, DC.

Dylan’s School puts on a hot pizza lunch for all the fathers twice a year and the kids really love the idea of being able to have lunch with their dads! Dylan really looks forward to this event so I make sure I take time off work to attend. Here are a couple of photos I was able to snap off during the fun of the pizza party!

Dylan’s First Day Of Kindergarten

Dylan ready and looking forward to his first day of Kindergarten!

Today we celebrate Dylan’s first day of Kindergarten. It’s hard to believe that the summer is already over, but it’s even harder to believe that my little boy is growing up so fast and starting his first year of ‘school’! Time really does fly by as you get older… I wish we could slow it down to spend more time with the ones we love. We are so proud of Dylan and we look forward to all the fun and joy the future brings! Have a great year my son!!

Dylan And The Ducati

Dylan thinking he is big enough to ride uncle Mike’s Ducati…?!

Today my brother Mike rode his motorcycle over to the house to visit with us and hangout with Dylan for the afternoon. After watching Dylan climb up on Mike’s Ducati it accrued to me that he could not only reach the handle bars, but he could also reach the pegs with his feet. My little boy is getting bigger every day… I just hope he doesn’t ask for one of these for his birthday!

The Blue Angels Flyover

The Blue Angels flyover at the Air Force Memorial – Arlington, VA.

We heard about a possible flyover of the US Navy’s Blue Angels on the radio this afternoon and decided to try and find a nice place on the river to catch the show and take some pictures. They don’t normally advertise when they plan on flying over the Washington Metro area and I guess you can probably understand why that is, but this time they did. As a mater of fact, they gave so much advance warning that when we got to the Air Force Memorial, which is where we decided to try and watch the show, it was pretty much already packed with would-be spectators.

The information on the radio was that they where going to be doing flyovers at Reagan National Airport for a photo shoot and that one of the trainer planes would be taking photos as they flew over Washington, DC. I think it was for a “Fly Navy” advertising campaign or something like that, but who really knows. Instead of flying down the river in line with the DCA landing flight path they actually flew across the river from Washington into Arlington… through the DCA flight path and almost directly over the Air Force Memorial where we were set up to watch. WOW, what a great sight! They only made two passes, but it was enough time for me to snap off some awesome photos with my Nikon D7100 and 70-200mm f/2.8G FX VRII Zoom Lens. Enjoy the photos!

Sea Glass Beach at Alexandra Battery Park – St. George’s Parish, Bermuda

Here is the second installment of pictures from our recent family trip to beautiful Bermuda. There are a lot of photos in this set from our excursion to Alexandra Battery Park for Julies sea glass collecting adventure. I also had a chance to capture Dylan being himself in the small surf at the sea glass beach without fear of him being pulled away by the currents. We finished off the afternoon with lunch and pool time at the beach club and then a golf cart ride home for dinner and a nice quite evening. I’ll post some videos from our trip later after I have a chance to edit them.
