Waiting

IMAG0213-1

We’re playing the waiting game for Baby “Bug” Shoo. We had a Dr’s appointment today and we were shooting  hoping for going early. Well, Bug has his own agenda and he’s not ready just yet. Mrs. Shoo has been feeling contractions but they’ve been sporadic. A couple of times she has woken me up for the possibility of making a visit to the hospital. So far, that hasn’t played out yet.

We’re waiting.

This is what happens when you leave me to watch dogs. Same could be said about kids.

Just a couple of weeks left

Just a couple of weeks left before there’s another one to be included in this family portrait.

I was the photographer for my friend’s wedding this weekend. It was a great location out in the country. I handed my camera to my friend and had him take a couple of me and Mrs. Seems like we’re never in the photo together since I’m always the one taking the photo.

Furry kids

They always say practice on dogs first before having your own kids. We’re hoping they trained us enough for what is coming.

Pizza from tonight. The summer after I graduated high school I worked at Vic’s Pizza. The one that was off of Wabash Ave. It was a horrible hot job. I learned the value of making a good pizza and not working in a 120 degree kitchen. And that would be why tonight’s dinner was delicious.

Less than

a month to go…

The recipe I used was from the Weber iPad app. There are ton of other variations floating around the ‘net.
