Dan the Man

So my brother was here over the weekend. I didn't get a chance to mention that he was coming last week. Something about parenting four kids or something.


He is getting married on June 3rd, and naturally we'll be heading down to Florida for the big day. However, knowing how weddings are, we don't anticipate spending a lot of quality time with him then. Besides, he should probably be spending most of his quality time with his new wife, right? But since he didn't come home for Christmas this year, it's been a good, long time since we've seen him. After some discussion, we all decided that he should come visit! And so he did!

He got to meet Freddie, or as he likes to call him, Froederick. (Name that movie reference for 5 points!)

And spend the day being the most awesome uncle in the universe!

There was a great deal of laughter and horseplay, literally.

He was only here for about 36 hours, but we managed to do about ten times of what I do on a normal day. We went to Eat N Park, the guys brewed beer, and Dan gave Sammy some hockey lessons.

He read stories, dangled the kids by their feet (having an uncle about 74 feet tall has some big perks), ate some leg of lamb, drank some beer, hugged, snuggled and generally loved on all of the kids.

He also shared some fashion headgear with his nephew.

If there is someone out there who can figure out how to make Florida and West Virginia closer together, they could make a bunch of people, both little and big, very happy.

HI!! I am SUmmer Dan's friend from Universal- I adore your children having being told ( forced to listen to hee hee ) stories about them from your brother. I have two of my own and I am addicted to reading blogs of other moms who are raising kiddos and dealing with life! I shall now stalk your blog. The End!
