We’re overwhelmed with job and family responsibility, just like you. We know that it’s a sacrifice to add another event to your schedule. And analyzing your marriage in a church meeting may not sound very appealing. Our goal is to make this fun. To provide an opportunity to invest in your marriage. Like a date night, it’ll […]
Why do we call it “Love and Laughter”? The Love part is pretty self explanatory–marriage is about love, right. But laughter? The struggles in marriage (both as an institution and in our individual lives) are real, and no laughing matter. But as we started to prepare for this class, Elder Joseph Wirthlin’s (a former LDS Apostle) […]
Hi! My name is Robin. Scott and I will be facilitating the Strengthening Marriage Relationship Class. We’ve dubbed it Love and Laughter, because the other one sounds a bit clinical and we’re not therapists. Scott works for himself doing corporate and documentary film making. I am an attorney for an early stage energy technology company. […]
Although a couple of weeks ago he took his first tentative solo steps, yesterday’s walk in the park is much closer to the real deal….Don’t mind the parents; we’re kind of excited, and thrilled that we both got to be there to see him go.
This morning my bike was stolen from outside of our house. We had placed my bike and Scott’s (with O’s baby seat on it) outside our open door. Scott ran to change his contact lens, and when I picked up O to take him outside to load him up, I realized that we had […]
This photo is not connected to the post, but we all know you come here to see O! Food has been on my mind lately. The bad news– Oliver is allergic to peanuts. Which is kind of a big deal– as in no Thai restaurants, hassles at […]
Ahh, the joys of daddyhood.

Just to the right of tooth #4 (he’s getting the two on top) in comes tooth #5. This may explain some of the sleepless night we had last night. Otherwise Oliver is a champ, only mildly affected by the teeth eruption.
Just heard the sad news that Bill (white shirt) passed away this evening. So glad we got to see him last week.
Just thought this photo said a lot about his age. Growing up fast!
Oliver has his first crush.

Cute photos from our weekend getaway to Leesburg.
Christmas budgets being what they are, we decided to use the SnR Christmas movie franchise to pay some of the bills around here. So, our new sponsorship with Old Spice should bring in some cash while making our baby smell like the baby he should smell like. Merry Christmas everyone!
O gets a taste (literally) of his first snow.
Bath time cuteness.
A wonderful visit this week from California by grandma Susan. Good times, delicious food, and lots of O time!
My first ever pumpkin pie!
If this isn’t one of the cutest things you’ve seen today… 🙂 Anyway, O and I had a little glam-style portrait session yesterday. He was in a particularly good mood, probably because he had just woken up from a 2 hour nap (daddy assisted), so I grabbed a wrinkled sheet and the camera. Thought you […]
Cute photo of mom and boy.
As the new president of our Elders Quorum at church (the group of adult men), I get the chance to see into the lives of the members of our quorum. Choongo, one of our elders, and a new friend, needed a motorized wheelchair in a bad way. Virtually housebound, he faces not only continuing health […]
This shot turned out so well I thought it should be added to the Poop Deck. Mom, dad, Ollie.
Oliver and fam are on the road again. This time for a quick work trip up north. His eighth plane flight was uneventful, as all of the others have been (knocking on wood now). This means that O has now visited a dozen states, counting DC as a state, in only 4 months (and one […]
This morning I was invited to photograph an official naturalization ceremony for a Muslim friend from Morocco. It was a beautiful and inspiring event. A hundred or so newly-minted citizens took the oath of office with family members and friends watching, and wiping tears. It was truly an inspiring morning, including the thoughtful words from […]
