New Family Member and Happy Birthday Ashley...

Yesterday was the first day in the life of my new baby cousin...

My cousin Steven and his wife Amanda (also my cousin - right? - well, I love her either way - hah) had there first child... She was only 8 months pregnate and due to some health considerations they decided to have the baby now... We were a little nervice about everything as it was a bit early but, alas... Welcome to the world - at 4 pounds and 13 ounces... lying at 17 inches long... My new baby cousin.. Brady Luke Rhodes... Can't wait to get to know him!!!

New baby Brady...


My cousin Steven... Look at that proud daddy grin...

AND...

Yesterday was also the birthday celebration for my good friend and favorite firefighter... Ashley Apt... Happy B-Day!!!

A bunch of us ended up over at Flying Saucer to celebrate... Dang, we've got some good friends... I feel like we should all have more nights like last night... really days like yesterday... days of celebration and happiness... Just something too right about it to ignore... especially when you compare it to what's on TV, the paper, and the internets... people killing each other... people dying... all that stuff just feels wrong... Anyways... I am thankful for a great day of celebration and life...

Fish and Pat... of all the pics of Pat I have... he looks absolutely crazy in all of them...



Love and Peace,

Here is what happens when you ask three crazy people to bring you your camera because you left it at your house....
