Went out to my Wifes Aunts gravesite to put flowers Sunday.

Her aunts tradition was to go the the graveyard on Memorial day and "distribute" flowers so everyone laid to rest there had flowers on their grave. "Distributing" meant taking flowers from the graves with "too many" and puting them on the graves of those who had none. A very thoughtful yet not thought-out gesture. My wife and her sister continued the tradition, minus taking flowers from other people graves. We brought extras.

I confess, I'm a poser. At least thats how I feel. Due to a job move I've been out of the water for almost a month. I've been busy, and things are going ok so I've been holding off the inevitable dry-dock bad attitude thus far. Plans for this weekend were to go to the beach with my Beautiful (my name for my wife) Sunday morning and just hang out, surf, have fun. Wetsand said bad surf and high winds, Surfline said bad surf and high winds, The weather channel and weatherbug said bad surf and high winds, onshore. With all this, I figured there's no extra loss in a change of plans so now we're not going to the beach on Sunday. Saturday is my normal surf day since my wife is still sleeping when I head out for work anyways so I just leave early, get a surf in and head to work. Of course, bad conditions so I didnt bother. Got to work a little early and decided to take a detour and look at the waves since the weather seemed kinda nice I wanted to see what it was like.
Chest-high, hardly any wind and fun looking! I'm officially crapped out surf-wise. I was almost ready to swim out and body surf in my work clothes! I can't take this much longer.

Its a Boy!

Boy bits!

He's doing great and so's his Mommy

I am unbelievably stoked. I'm going to have a son. Anyone out there want to shape me a 6" speeddialer so I can start him on the road to fishy-ness?

Sorry for the lack of posts. Things are rockin @ work and home so that means busy busy busy. I haven't even been in the water in 2 weeks. I'm holding off the evil-non-surfing twin thus far but I'm not sure if I'll last much longer. Need to get wet.

My Beautiful wife and I will be participating in the 2008 Aids Walk Orange County this next Saturday. If any folks out there want to donate to the fight against HIV/Aids, please click here.
