A concrete plan for cement

October 15, 2012

Hello new porch & walkway! Concrete steps will now guide you to the house from either curb. We love the mod design & playfulness of the various sizes, while keeping them all left-aligned and appealing to our symmetrical nature at the same time.

River Gray Pierce

June 30, 2012

It took us 48 hours, up to the last minute, but son #2 officially now has a name. We weren’t going to be able to leave the hospital without putting something on the birth certificate and I was worried that Baby Boy Pierce (which was written on all his hospital cards) might end up leading to B.B. Pierce. As much as I admire B.B. King, I don’t think our last name works quite as well as the Blues Boy’s does.

River is at home now and appears to be training for a sleeping, eating & pooping triathlon.

Last night he had a nasty blowout in our bed. 4am. We were like a sleepwalking mud wrestling tag team scrambling to change our sheets, change his clothes & clean him all up, while trying to keep him from screaming (and molly from barking) and waking up big brother. Almost forgot just how much fun those parenting moments are. Thanks so much for that lovely reminder, Riv. 😉

Back on Track

June 24, 2012

this blog has been abandoned too long! but no mas! with the convenience of the WordPress app now on my phone, we’ll crank out some updates.

Fast forward 1 year. Halloween 2011. VP is fireman, patrolling the streets of Crestview. Rescuing candy and protecting us all from oversized holiday themed inflatables.

Trail of Frights

November 4, 2010

Halloween in the hood.  His full-suit fleece dalmation costume was too hot, so we improvised a greaser look at the last minute.  Our neighbor, Gus, was a pretty sweet Charlie Brown.\

October = 15 months

October 22, 2010

lots of walking and exploring happening.  these days he’s most excited by dogs, cats, and birds.  and he does this super cute baby-sign where he swings him arm back and forth whenever he wants music.  so we usually have to put a record on for him during breakfast each morning.

Last Day of Summer

October 22, 2010

we finally get to the neighborhood pool…coincidentally, on the last day it’s open for summer.  so, uhhh, more to come next summer.  stay tuned.
