So it's been a long while since I have graced my blog. Been busy, a little lazy and I guess I just don't write about everything I do I suppose. But tonight I just wanted to write a little update on the year so far. A lot has happened since I last wrote in January. First I want to go on a little about my litte girl, Kaiya. She has been amazing in every way. She has her first birthday on the 18th of this month and I can't believe we are at this point already. Seems like just yesterday that she was the size of my forearm and weighed about 5 pounds. Now a year later she still barely comes to my knees and only weighes 17 pounds, but she's trying to walk and can at least say "hi" and "dad". Good enough for me, I couldn't be more proud! My wife and I have been extremely lucky to have such an easy going and happy little girl. Anyway, so since January it seems like we have been everywhere. My wife's grandmother died in Jan. so she was gone for a few days, then all was quiet until. April when she suprised me for my birthday and we headed out to the Columbia, SC zoo and then on to Carowinds for a little roller coaster action. Then on that same weekend, she threw me a suprise party, at which I was definetely suprised. Then on to May, where my wife went back to Columbia with all my sisters for a getaway, followed by my sister Karie's wedding to Ryan Jury on May 15th and then we headed down to Hilton Head Island for a few days for an early anniverssary trip. Somewhere in all of that we were in Myrtle Beach with a couple of friends from Utah (Brian and Lacee). We have also been back up to Fayetteville numerous times and back and forth to Myrtle Beach. That's just the half of what I've been up to in the past year, but figured I needed a brief update. Today however was when we actually celebrated our anniverssary with dinner at The Melting Pot, which was all kinds of fun in and of itself and then we headed down to the beach for a little lightning and fireworks show. It was a pretty night to be out in the sand. So now it's late and I have church in the morning, so off to bed I go. Hopefully I'll be on more to keep things updated. Till then, good night.
