Took our family out to Sandestin last week and I had to share some photos. I couldn’t resist. :)

Nathan had to stop and see the space shuttle on the way.

Typical Nathan.

Typical Karis.

Feedin the fishies.

Nathan watching the live band play… overwhelmed by all the awesomeness! This kid is seriously into music.

My two favorite girls! Ok 3… if you count Grandma in the back, staring at the ground, thinking that might help hide her in the photograph. :)

8 years ago TODAY (May 17th) Cheryl walked down this boardwalk to the beach to marry me. Such a lucky guy! The reception was held at her parents house (above Nathan’s head).

I’m beyond in love with this photograph. I will blow this up and hang it somewhere… just need to decide where.



 

 

 

Just got back from a much needed, very relaxing vacation out in Boone NC. Got some skiing in, some time with family and even a little bit of time to whip out the camera for some shots. Ahhh. I miss it already.

Thought I’d share a few frames from the past week. Enjoy!

The view from our cabin.

My sweet little happy 5 month old, Karis. Or as Nathan calls her, KareBear.

This has been a long time comin. I’m still in the thick of crazy wedding season, but thought I’d take a break and post our cute new little baby girl, Karis. She was born on 09/09/09 – how stereotypical of a wedding can I get? :)

Karis Linley Perkins weighed in at 8lbs 3oz and 20.5inches. She’s a really good mix of Dad & Mom, but Mom and I agree, she has a lot of Nathan in her. Without further ado, some baby pics!

I’m not quite sure if Nathan is practicing his Thriller routine, or if he’s just trying to scare the neighbors into moving. :)

Well, I have a sweet little girl now. :) She was born on 09/09/09 and weighed 8lbs 3oz, measuring 20.5in. She’s an absolute cutie and can already tell you, she’s gonna be a Daddy’s girl. :)

Cheryl and Karis are doing quite well, even little Nathan is being such a gentle, loving brother to his sister.

I can’t wait to post some cute shots of her (so expect those soon!!) but for now, here are a few shots from her birth. Don’t worry, nothing too crazy. :)

I love this shot. Nathan was so curious. He kept pointing to her saying: Bebe. Bebe.

Nathan really wanted to go nigh nigh with Karis. He wouldn’t let anyone take her away. :)

One sweet new addition to our family!
