Posted by in Children, Family, Happy Moments, Parents

The happiest and most exciting day of my life was when my son, Hank Preston was born at 9:38 pm at 6lbs and 4 ounces! He is such a big boy!

Children’s Love

The happiest moment of my life happened the other day. I had just pulled into my son’s daycare, where he was playing outside with his buddies.

Yesterday when I baptized my boy in our swimming pool as a child of the Universe, by having him repeat these words: I will always be good to myself and others I will always pursue knowledge, I will respect my planet, I will make the most out of each day that I am alive Then I dunked his head underwater. We hugged for a few...

Seeing the Chargers make a come back win..with a determined set of 3rd string players.  Could it be?  The chargers seem to be rolling, and seeing Antonio Gates scoring TD’s again is a great thing.  I think this could be a great year… Maybe its just becoming the great American past time, but each year I look forward to...
