Thanks. There are great memories; I've a couple more in mind to share, but not tonight. The ride is near the end of June. It's called the Ride for Roswell, and benefits Roswell Park Cancer Institute, one of the top cancer research and treatment facilities in the world, and located right here in western NY. Dave was a regular, even when he was dying he rode for them. Our team is named after him, "Team Snap", Snap being a nickname I'm still trying to figure out. I've got a bad pic of him riding with the cooler trailer; I'll post it if I can get a good image.

This was taken last spring before I moved. Luke has this great John Deere power wheels tractor. Danielle was jealous so we got her a power wheels quad. Then luke was jealous so I unlocked the second speed, so his would go faster. Then Dani was jealous again... Sigh... I don't get to watch them race around anymore; good thing I videotaped it. Kids're awesome!

Good luck in June! And it sure sounds like you have a lot of fun with your kids. I remember once asking someone with grown children (when mine were little) what was his best parenting advice. He said "Enjoy them." It turned out to be the best advice I ever got...looks like you already have that down! :)

I do try; since their mother and I split up, I try to make them the focal point of my life; (I imagine and hope that she does also, though I have my doubts.) My basic job in life now is to do whatever I can to make sure they come out of all this with reasonably healthy heads on their shoulders. Its usally a fun job. I just be with them. I video-tape lots of stuff. You know how we can look at a pic from a while ago and say, "wow did they actually look like that?" Well I must have made 15 or 20 dvds of them doing all sorts of stuff. So I'll always have a record. They do like to see themselves on TV...

Thanks for the kind words about my brother.

New pic or two soon...

Back when my kids were little video cameras were sooooo expensive and we could barely afford their formula and diapers. Still, I wish we had scraped some money together and rented one for a day. Those dvds are going to mean even more to you when they're all grown up. :)

I remember when my parents got divorced, we used to go to my dad's apartment and make fake commercials and movies using the video camera. It was a lot of fun.

That does sound fun, and actually, we've been planning to do a couple music videos; I'll let y'all know if we do...
