The Belly Session with Sam, David and Dale

We had so much fun with Sam and David over the holidays! We took a moment to capture this awesome time in their lives as they await baby Dale! Sam and David were perfect subjects as they relaxed and had a good time in front of the camera! Thanks for letting us play and we are SOOOOOO excited to meet Dale!

Holiday Fun at Harbour Point...

We had a fun trip over to my parent neighborhood last weekend for the Habour Point Christmas party (for kids). They brought a little Polar Express for the kids (and dad) to ride on and their were lot's of yummy treats...























It's that time of year!

Well, we are having our big family Christmas at Linkeland South this year. So even though there is no snow, we thought we would get in to the spirit of things by going out to a tree farm and cutting down our very own Christmas tree. This particular location had a really great charity. They were raising money for an organization called "Three Dimensional Life." They work with adolescents that need help recovering from addiction and other destructive behaviors. So below are some pics from the tree adventure. You'll notice Hayden is super helpful throughout the process. lol

Grandpa making sure the tree is of good height...


Hayden testing the durability of the branches.. He warned me that kids would be around the tree and that is was important to make sure the branches were sturdy...
Hayden showing mommy the tree he thinks would be most suitable for our house...

Hayden making sure he can be in the right spot to help with the sawing of said tree...

Jenn overseeing the project and making sure all safety precautions were being properly taken..


The cutting of the tree...


Hudson thinking, "Is it time to eat yet?"
Hayden inspecting branch quality...


Hayden teaching me proper saw technique... I had no idea i was doing it wrong... ;-)
It was a great experience, and besides the giant beetle that jumped off the tree into our living room while we were decorating it, the tree looks great!

Happy Halloween!

It was a wonderfully frightful Halloween this year up in Washington D.C. It was so nice to share Hayden's first trick or treating experience with his cousins Morgan and Grant and the rest of the family. Below is a slideshow from the spooky evening!

Airplanes!

Today we took Hayden to the park just outside of the Reagan airport in Washington D.C.  He loved the planes so much.  It's a bummer my dad isn't still flying cause he would have loved a cockpit tour!  Here are some pics from the occasion.

Corvette Funfest.. Oh Yes, I was there...


I had a little father son weekend last weekend in Effingham, IL for the 35th Anniversary of Mid America Motorworks.  So for those of you that don't know, my dad likes Corvette's a lot.  This little gathering in Effingham draws around 20,000 corvettes to their fairgrounds every year.  So if you do like vette's, this is the place to be.  We managed to leave with a much better sounding vette than we arrived in thanks to Corsa (worth a click just for the sound bite) and their fantastic sounding pipes!  That being said, the festival was an interesting cross section of Americans.  Overall, I had a great time getting a chance to hang out with my dad, and seeing and hearing some pretty neat cars.  The best part of this trip is that it jump started the next vette project that we are undertaking... You'll be HEARING about it more later...


Stay tuned...

Here is a quick vid of the loudest exhaust I have ever heard followed by some images from the event...

Note the camera shake the first time he really hits the throttle.  It startled me so much I almost dropped my iPhone.  :-)

My dad's car amongst like kind...




Below is install alley where you can drive up and get a new set of pipes in 20 minutes... Do those lifts look pretty cool?  They also fit nicely in a garage like my dad's.  ;-)

Corvette Z06 doing a burnout to please the crowd..

This is about $300 worth of rubber into the burnout... lol  He had brand new tires...

The result of the ridiculous burn out.  Yes that is hundreds of dollars worth of tires bits there...



Out with the old...

In with the new.  Thank you Corsa, these things sound fantastic!

Don't they look nice?
Can't go wrong with Kettle Corn!
Yummy!


I wouldn't want to have to unload that trailer...

Now if you read this far, you are about to travel back in time...  There were two concerts on Sat. night.  The first one was Beach Boy genre Jan & Dean Show.  I felt slightly out of place.  



Then I felt a little better when Survivor came on.  Kind of fun to see a good ole hair band..  Brought me right back to middle school..  These guys dressed the part, but if you look closely they are not that young anymore.  The lead singer still had pretty amazing pipes though we left after 4 songs.  lol  




The mic stand twirling and rock lock gesturing was worth the price of admission alone...  Oh wait it was free.

There will be a series of Corvette posts as we are undertaking a pretty cool project with my dad's C5.  Stay tuned for more pics and updates!

Escape to the Zoo!

We became members of the Atlanta Zoo today! In Adam's few free hours off this weekend we took the Hs to see the animals! Adam is spending most of the weekend shooting a wedding atLake Oconee's RITZ CARLTON. Rita and Jack Henry joined us as well for a beautiful sunny day!


I was really impressed with the zoo - its not huge but it had great exhibits and Hayden was able to see all the animals up close and personal! He impressed me with his knowledge of the animals names and noises! Hayden loved the Elephant, monkeys and goats in the petting zoo!

Here are a few pics...
