Five Years…we miss you Lukas

It is hard to believe that it has been 5 years since our first son, Lukas was born still. I can still hear the echo of the doctor’s voice when we were told there was no heartbeat and I remember nearly every aspect of the three days that would follow. Without a doubt the hardest…

Potty Training, A One-Eyed Dog and Garth Brooks

It has been quite a week. My wife and I have been (impatiently) waiting on Ian to become interested in potty training. All of our friends have warned us about boys being difficult, and they have said it would just all of a sudden take hold. Well they were right…sort of. Potty training is at…

I miss you Lukas.

Last week my second son, Ian turned two!  He is developing a wonderful personality and he talks up a storm.  Probably my fault there.  We like to tell stories in the Moore family.  I absolutely LOVE watching this little man grow up each day.  It truly does go fast. Yesterday I traveled to meet with…

One Year. #IanTurnsOne

As I write this post I can’t believe that it has been 6 months since I last made a post.  A lot has happened over the last 6 months that I can’t even cover in a post.  What I can do is talk about my first year as a father to Ian. That’s right…today is…

the Due Date

Well here we are…March 21. Ian’s official due date.  I can’t express enough how happy I am that he is a growing, healthy, happy baby boy.  I also can’t express enough how happy I am that on his due date he is already 3 weeks old! There is simply NO WAY Kami and I could…

101st Post

So I had been planning on doing some sort of big “100th post” with content about what the previous 99 posts had shared with whomever is out there reading these.  And then I felt my baby kick and I was thrown off a bit.  That was a very exciting moment for me and I wanted…

6 Degrees of Travel

Well I had what I thought was a good idea about a year ago to start writing travel reviews from all the places I had been.  I also wanted to gather reviews from my friends and their friends to build a blog containing a lot of reviews all posted by people we were connected to…

Warning: I am going Geek Talk today!

Well I have had an interesting week…all caused by the sudden decision by my computer to not start up. As you all may or may not know…I am a geek. A computer geek to be more specific and my business and hobby revolves around my computer system working properly. Because of my need for system…

A Sad Day in American Sports History

Today is the first day in 85 years that Yankees Stadium will not be preparing for another game. Last night marked the final game to be played in what many people are calling our Roman Coliseum. Not only did Yankees Stadium host World Series Champions, it hosted Super Bowls, College Football classics, Joe Louis &…

Fire It Up! The Outdoor Kitchen is DONE!

Well maybe tomorrow night we will fire it up and throw on some meat…tonight let’s just admire the craftsmanship! This was a challenging project from day one but when it is all said and done we now have one sweet outdoor kitchen ready to cook for the masses and a great new entertainment area ready…

Only the Grout and the Grill Left to Do!

Well I have to throw it out there that my wife and I out did ourselves on the tile work for our outdoor kitchen. I think our Do-It-Yourself status has officially jumped up a few notches with the way this is turning out. I would not recommend that first time tilers start our with a…
