Look at that. It's our Super Mods! Awesome picture, you beautiful women. :D

TJ Teddy needs a Jeffersonian lab coat. Or a multi-colored scarf, or a fedora and a striped-shirt like TJ wears in his L.A. pictures. Hee. If only I could sew... ;)

So glad you are back safe and sound, Rebecca! Did you and your family have a wonderful trip? What did you see and do? Aside from meeting the lovely Steph (yay!), what else was your favorite part of the travels?

It feels great to be a Dad again. Tempe is my third but still as exciting as the first. I missed the birth of my son (the second child) as my wife gave birth at 11pm and I was at home looking after the other sprog. By the time the babysitters (Grandparents) got to the house and me to the hospital I'd missed the birth by 30 minutes.

Didn't miss a thing this time and even cut the cord (which was scary).

Rebecca. So pleased to see you back on. To be fair, you thoroughly deserved a rest, so there's no need to apologise for not having been round a lot! I daresay there was a bit of jet lag in there too.

I LOVED being with you and Gretchen and your great family. It's been a tremendous and emotional experience and, like you, I feel it is definitely a beginning. Stay happy and I wish you a fantastic vacation. <<big hug>>

Thanks for the welcome back, everyone. Glad to be home!

Sherry, I posted a mass of photos in my MySpace gallery that hit the highlights of my trip, plus a short blog with one photo. It was a fabulous vacation!

Hi, Rebecca! I saw your blog with the one photo a little while ago -- what a gorgeous picture. I can't wait to see the rest. Looks like one hell of a vacation, sweet lady. Can't wait to see/hear more about it! :D

Hopefully you'll be able to see the pictures, although I have set it to a private album so I'm not sure.
