So! A lot has happened recently and I am just now able to share the updates. We moved from California to San Antonio, Texas on May 28th, and what a change! I moved for a job promotion and other than coming down with a wicked stomach flu the first week I was at work (and wanting to run the other direction for a day or two) things have gone really well.

For my son’s fifth birthday, my wife and I decided to check into an outdoor structure for him to play on. I’ve gone back and forth in my mind about this; I didn’t have one growing up, there are nice parks within a 15 minute drive, and he’s an only child at this point.
