Grandpa's Birthday

We were in Beaumont to celebrate Grandpa Morrison's (aka Da-da) birthday. Here's some great pics of Audrey after giving butterfly kisses to Gigi and snuggling with the birthday boy.

I think Jacob took most of these pics. Maybe he'll follow in dad's footsteps into photography.

toe tricks

Clark has some really long fingers and toes. It's pretty weird that his fourth toe is his longest--he is always curling it around the others.

First Fish

Audrey caught her first fish, a perch, at Bebe and Pop's house. She now has a new Dora fishing rod, so she can go fishing with dad anytime. Clark is rolling over now which is a skill I believe he developed to escape Audrey's smothering.

Lauren and Kathy

Audrey's new best friends from the family reunion, Lauren and Kathy (Katherine). There is a mutual love for swimming between them. Watching her interact with Lauren and Katherine did make me sad that she won't have an older sister, because she loved copying what the older girls did. I'm posting this at work because I'm missing my kids real bad right now and needed to see some pictures myself.

Father's Day Pics

Belated pics from Father's Day. The church sermon was pretty emotional for me (turning into my dad more and more everyday) as they emphasized how important my role is to my children. Everyday just gets better and better with them. After my first week back to work after vacation, I had some serious withdrawal problems because I only get to spend like 4 hours with them per day now. Shannon and I are constantly amazed at the Lord's love as we realize no matter how much we love Clark and Audrey, the Lord loves us more which is beyond comprehension. We are putting the wraps on a great weekend as we had few plans and we just got to spend time as a family. Audrey has been very funny as she asks for "FH" which is short for Family Holding. She wants everyone to come into the bed and just snuggle. There is nothing in the world that I'd rather do.

Beaumont Pics

We visited Beaumont and Nacogdoches after our vacation. Here's some pictures. Clark is about to go to sleep in the one picture. Also you can see that Audrey doesn't mind splashing water on other people, but she sure doesn't like to have water splashed on herself.

We went to Boston for a conference and took Clark and Lil' A with us. Alston, Ben, Henry and Spencer live in Cambridge and we got to spend some great time with them. One day we went with them to Frog Pond site of the infamous Billman engagement. Their engagement was in winter, so didn't have the backdrop of half-naked kids playing. Amy House lives in Boston so we met her at Harvard for burgers at Mr. Bartley's and she graciously babysat for us. Our tour guide told us that the most popular attraction in Boston was the site of the Cheers entrance. All of the stereotypes that you've heard of Bostonians are all true.


We took Clark to his first baseball game at the best baseball stadium in the world, Fenway Park. I think Clark is going to be a Red Sox fan as he smiled pretty large whenever the Sox scored and we saw Manny Ramirez outside of our hotel. So I think it's destiny. For some unknown reason, Pop and Pat are Yankee fans so they are now Clark's rivals. We also took the tour which was pretty awesome as we got to go on the field and sit atop the Green Monstah.
Say what you want but Boston isn't stroller friendly and I did Baby Bjorn it.

Smothering, I mean mothering

Lots of you have asked how Audrey is doing with Clark. I've uploaded some video to show you what happens at our house about 10-15 times per day. Poor Clark.
