What's the best anniversary gift you can think of?

Mike & Kara's family grew to three on the 11th!
Three people, that is. Good dog, Edgar!

14 June 2013

Grumpy (that's me) arrived in Boise on the 20th.
I guess Kara would say that having Bentley was
the only way to get me to visit them at their home!

It looks pretty good, don't it?
Put this in yer
mush & taste it!

Is that gas, or are you happy to see me?
Smile! Someone's
quick on the draw

Is that gas, or are you happy to see me?
Who's Grumpy!?

Hello, Future of the World
Mike & Bentley,
it's Face Time!
21 June 2013

Not only was their son delivered in June;
so were their bachelor's degrees from Boise State!

I think we're gonna take alot of photos like this one...
We are the
Willcox Family
21 June 2013

Long is the road they have traveled so far...
Our Bachelor's degrees

His face seems to say 'NOT the Mama!'
The boy looks a
bit suspicious...

Even with his wounded shoulder, Mike's doing it well!
Mike & Bentley,
morning routine
22 June 2013

Kara & Mike live in a nice neighborhood surrounded by many "green spaces."
We took a stroll through a little park nearby where Mike had been previously ticketed
for letting his oh-so-vicious miniature dachsund off the leash. Let him loose again!

Lemme tellya what we're gonna do, son...
... We'll go hunting...
... and go fishing...
22 June 2013

And this is only the beginning
And we'll go mountain
biking, and hiking...
22 June 2013

Oops. Back-pedaling for now!
Oh. The biking.
Don't mention that yet.
22 June 2013

It's not a carriage. It's a HumVee!
Out for some
fresh Idaho air

Mike AND Edgar, unleashed
Strolling the park

Kara & Mike asked for help making ink prints of Bentley's hands & feet.
I didn't want to get hurt, so I grabbed the camera and stayed well back.

They said it couldn't be done...
It takes 3 adults
to foot-print him!
22 June 2013

Ohhh. He didn't like THAT!
A newborn trophy:
they'll only get bigger

Merrill & Karen were passing through Boise on a extensive road trip
If I didn't know Kara's Gramma to be so verbose normally, I'd have to
say that she was speaking in nonsequitor tongues when she saw Bentley!

One GGma on his mother's side...
Great Gramma Freeman
beholds the little one
23 June 2013

Get it when you can!
Bentley's rocked his
ol' Grumpy to sleep
23 June 2013

Good morning!
Mom glides down

Yep. He's the 1st!
She didn't say alot,
which spoke volumes...

The obligatory, uberglorious 4-Generations photo
Eldest, Youngest,
Elder & Youth
24 June 2013

We did some "Four Generations" pictures with (a few of) the great-grandparents,
since it might be a rare occurence that we'd all be in one place at the same time.

Grammy scheming aloud
Thinks: "Bet he'd fit
in my purse..."

This time with the
ladies, wee man-child!

Contentment from many sources...
Nothing quite as nice
as a smiling baby

It made us so happy to see them making this brand new start!
