Young Sam is three months old and as big as a tank. He has the sweetest disposition, loves to smile and laugh, and sleeps all night.
This would be one of those times when he's sleeping all night.
Ellie had her recital at the Valley School of Dance in Geneseo. This is her second year, and she loves it.

This fine man brought in some Schaller's hots when that fine establishment was named fourth-best hot dog place in America. That's Sheri Smith raiding the goodies.
Dear Sophie and her paratrooper husband Austin after he and his company had marched back in from a three-week exercise. They parachuted in and walked 30 kilometers out.

Here's my dear wife with her little brood, at church on Mother's Day.
Let's get some ice cream! Blue-eyed Ellie is an all-American girl.
Robbie had kindergarten screening last week. He counted to 100 for them, was disappointed they didn't want to hear him count by 10s, and read a book for them.

Mom and a couple of her boys. That dear lady rides herd on a herd of wild maniacs.

Jack is a loving and responsible big brother. He loves his siblings and watches over them constantly.
