The middle sand bar this year seems to have really come together and is delivering some absolute gems.
The high winds had blown this buoy in from the gulf and I thought it looked pretty cool. If you look close you can see yet another barrel in the background.

The phone call as it turns out was from Mike! He wanted to let me know that he had made a full recovery and was heading back to work today. He was really appreciative of all the prayers and good wishes.
It is so awesome to see God at work! Not often do we give God the credit for the miracles that he provides every day. Most of the time they are so subtle that you may not even notice but every once in a while you get a doosy like this one.
I am so happy for Mike and his Family and I appreciate everyones prayers for them. I'm sure the Lord does too.

She's a little messy but still pretty cute!
Dr. Gabriel (a true pro) and new family.
Hannah's first moments included poking, prodding, weighing and more. Although she was most uncomfortable, dad didn't show much mercy as he clicked away.
Wife and daughter. How did I get so lucky?

So... had the privilege of teaching a high school basketball coach how to surf recently, his team just made the state finals, got a box of championship tshirts and even a pair of team nike court shoes from the guy, he's pretty proud of his team I'm sure, and I'm guessing they are plenty stoked on him. Well, his name is Mike, 6'+++, big ol' boy, always wanted to surf. So he gets a few waves, pretty dang clumsy I must admit (sorry Mike) but thats to be expected for a guy in his 40's that's never surfed, but he got a few, and was stoked as any grom. He wouldn't quit emailing me about what a great time he had surfing... but its such a refresher to hear about some one's "first time". One email said that he bought a bunch of Indo Boards for the team for training...go figure. I think it was for him. Well, today his wife calls, said Mike never stops talking about surfing, but during his lesson, he felt really clumsy and uncoordinated, and so he goes to his doc for a checkup and tells doc that he felt like he couldn't keep his balance. Doc does a catscan... and Mike finds out he has a massive brain tumor. His wife called me today from the waiting room to let us know he was going through an 11 hour brain surgery. I'm not sure of his prognosis, she said he had paralysis and to pray for him. So, if any of you have a moment say a prayer for Mike, or a word of support, here's his email .

Well..... I don't think that anyone is going to be knocking down the door to have me host a tv show anytime soon. Regardless, the studio tour has been added to the video section of our website. Feel free to watch the amateur at work.

I was asked to speak to the South Padre Island Rotary Club last week and I would like to thank them for their hospitality and interest in photography. I had a great time and would be honored to go back again. The questions that I received have led me to consider doing a workshop for local enthusiasts. Check back for details.
As I mentioned yesterday the bun(Hannah)is still cooking in the oven(Page) and everything seems to be going just fine. I have to say that there is nothing like someones first unborn child to keep them on their knees. In that regard I have to thank little Hannah because my relationship with God has strengthened just because I have been talking to Him more consistently. I think we tend to forget how powerful and helpful prayer is to us. Not in the sense of getting things that we ask for, but in the fact that an open line of communication gives us a better sense of who we are, where we are in our lives, and a real peace that only comes when talking to the Almighty.
One only needs to watch the news for just a few moments to understand how blessed each and every one of us is. I will continue to be thankful for all of the undeserved grace that is showered on me and my family every day.

Page and I had another doctor's visit and little Hannah seems to be on track in her development. The other thing that is on track is the home improvements. The pink color that eminates from Hanna's future bedroom is nearly blinding and the final touches around the rest of the house are getting taken care of. God bless.

Our normally clean house is constantly covered in sheet rock dust with a wonderful hint of paint fumes. Those of you who know me well know my weakness for fast food but I have to say that even I am growing tired of takeout.
As always there is light at the end of the tunnel. We hope to be done in the next three weeks and expect it will be done four weeks after that (inside joke for those of you who have done this kind of project before.) God bless.

Nice view huh! This was from our hotel overlooking Central Park.This is the infamous Times Square. It's much more impressive at night but I only grabbed a photo during the day.
Looking up at the Rockefeller Building. This is one of my favorite pics of the trip. It is a view of St. Patrick Church amongst the skyscrapers with a sign on the cab that says "Never Hide."
