Mmm, Cake

The gang recently helped their dad blow out the candles on his birthday cake.

We recently took the boys to a indoor playground.

The boys loved the slides...

and all the climbing.

Rory also got into the act with some tumbling on the mats!

Pool Time

This past weekend, between all the great wedding festivities, we all hit the pool at the hotel and had a rip-roaring time. Owen made sure he went swimming every day.

Luke also had a good time in the pool, even though he did not like sharing the life preserver.

This was Rory's first time in a swimming pool and she loved to splash.

There's nothing like a family pic in the pool!

Rory really loved the pool. We'll have to take her to the pool back home in Oxford.

Tom & Cari's Wedding

We had a really good time at Tom & Cari's rehearsal dinner. The boys were psyched to be part of the festivities.

Cari and Rory made sure they coordinated their outfits.

Here's Owen walking down the aisle...

with Luke right behind him. They both did a great job and the wedding was great! Who would of thought that Luke would spend all night on the dance floor?

Here's a pic of the whole wedding party.

Rory just had the best time and she really looked cute.

We were fortunate to get our nephew (& resident photographer/videographer) Joey to take a family pic.

Luke Visits D.C.

There was more than just hockey on Luke's agenda during his recent trip to Washington, D.C. Some of the places he visited included: the White House,

the Capitol Building (from afar),

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial,

the National Museum of Natural History...

and of course, a local fire station.

He even found some time to eat..he does love pizza!

Happy Mother's Day 2009

Here's Amy with her 3 little angels on her special day...Happy Mother's Day!

We recently attended a Cinco de Mayo party and here's Rory sporting a sombrero. Now if she can only find her maracas.

Here's a pic of the boys as they read to Rory and as you can see, she loves it!

Springtime in Oxford

We recently went to the park for a picnic.

Rory just loves to swing...

and Luke loves to climb.

Rory has begun feeding herself.

Amy is a happy-camper now that we have a dishwasher that actually works!

2009 Frozen Four

Luke and dad recently went down to Washington D.C. for the Frozen Four (college hockey's version of the Final Four).

Fortunately, our team earned their first ever trip to the Frozen Four this year!

Luke was lucky enough to get some ice time at the Verizon Center.

Here Luke and his cousin Tsubomi are getting ready to take a face-off at center ice.

While Miami might have lost in the finals, we had a great time. Here Luke takes a break from eating his pickle to show his allegiance - Love & Honor to Miami!

I wonder if cousin Mo-Mo will be heading to Miami University in about 15 years?

Of course, no trip to D.C. is complete without meeting the's Luke with Miami University's President, David Hodge.
