Photo update!

So I have a month of cell phone pictures to update this blog with. Pretty lame way to update such a nice blog, once in an entire month, but here is what he's been up to.

Quinn is a happy and active little man. He has been helping me enjoy the good helping of snow dumped on us this year. Without him, winter is just a bunch of extra work and more wear on vehicles.



I have a buddy at work who races go carts, and Quinn got to see the race on a warm and sunny march day.



I took him to see a submarine museum, and he found that pretty amusing.

Once we got onto the actual submarine and went below decks, he was amused for about five minutes. And then started asking to go outside again. I remember thinking the same thing on my first underway during my time on subs





Next to our house there is a nice abandoned rock quarry I've been meaning to see. Quinn and I had our first nature walk. A nice father son day.






Times are good and Quinn is growing fast. If he didn't keep me so busy, I'd probably write in this blog all the time. My father in law recently mentioned that I should write more, referring to the way I updated during Quinns hospital days. Well, I have plenty of excuses as to why I don't write much anymore, but none of it involves a lack of inspiration from Quinn. He has been a gift that keeps on giving, and I find it a profound privilege and purpose to be his father. But at the end of the day, balancing work and play with an energetic toddler dictates how I spend my time. Hope everyone is well.
