Hula Hoop Throwdown

Ask yourself this… are you ready for a throwdown? —Bobby Flay Bobby Flay has a show on The Food Network in which he travels the country challenging various cooks to make their favorite dish in a competition with him. A couple of days ago, Angie suggested that sharing Oakley’s hula …

I live with four women

Well, someday that will be true. Today, I live with my wife and three little girls. And you know what? I sincerely love it. I grew up around women, for the most part, I have a reasonable understanding of them, I even like things that women like. That’s right, I …

Chilling On Mothers Day

Just sharing a little snippet of life at the Martin house here. Like all the videos on the site, there’s not some “glorious” moment. They’re basically moments captured for me to return to when everyone is totally different in a few years. Mothers Day was awesome last weekend… just a …

Rain isn’t necessarily bad…

Ah yes, Nashville has been set upon by rain, and not just a little. Yesterday’s makeup soccer game? Canceled. Aspen’s game this morning? Canceled. Oakley’s 4pm game? Yup, canceled. So, did we just sit around the house? No we did not. It was the opening weekend for the Franklin Farmers’ …

A Lasik Success

Alright, so yesterday was the first day where Jenn was supposed to open her eyes. On Friday, before the procedure, she couldn’t read the top line of the chart. (Really, she tried, she indicated she was looking at an E. The nurse informed her it was a number.) Yesterday, Jenn …

Oops!

OK, so I managed to go through the whole of Jenn’s birthday yesterday without taking a picture… Oh well, I’m sure she’ll be crushed. As the girls wrote on countless banners around the house, “Happy Brithday, Mammoo!” Aspen (with Oakley’s help) gave Jenn a really sweet gift. She took one …

Where did the strawberries go?

Well, I’ll tell you. I’ve got a family that can eat some serious strawberries. Thus far, they have been eaten as part of jam, sorbet, frozen yogurt, parfaits, shortcake, and countless other things. And do we like them? Yes we do. Lastly, an old picture… can you tell who it …
