Dad’s been working over-time lately, he’s been trying to save for a vacation to the Cascade Mountains. It seems like everyone I know goes up there for a quick weekend, some of my classmates even own property there, but we have never been. Dad loves to camp, though Mom is not a fan at all. I almost think that she’s not saving that hard because she doesn’t want to stay in a tent.

Oliver McCarthy (32 years), Brooklyn Lange (26 years)

Brooklyn loves kids, she wouldn’t have become a teacher if she didn’t. However, loving them, being pregnant with one, and having them in a wedding were not of the same cloth.

Chris turns forty this month, and thought he ought to dye his hair back to natural before he went totally gray. He saw that my cousin, Monroe was rocking a faux hawk of sorts, and he decided that it was time he got more adult hair.

We did family photos recently, and I can honestly say that we never imagined our family blossoming in the way it has through the generations. When we had Finn and Hazel, we never envisioned great grandchildren, but have seven now because of Finn’s oldest daughters.

narrated by: Emma

The twins turned one, and it had been the most difficult year of my life. I celebrated with Chris, the husband I hadn’t been intimate with more than a handful of times since the twins arrived, and spent evenings with even less. But then, I realized that the one year mark didn’t really change anything. Suddenly the twins were climbing out of beds, and I was waking up to find Evan sleeping on my bedroom floor.

narrated by: Colin

I have been able to avoid having the kids at my apartment since the split, but Erin put a knife in that with one of her manipulating ways where she comes out the victim. Slayground Games is coming out with a new game for the holiday season and has a launch party. Something we would have gotten a sitter for if we were still in a relationship. That is a perk that I do miss, having a toddler with a dirty diaper is not.
