A wedding in Stevensville, MD (just across the Bay Bridge from Annapolis) at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club.
That’s it. Our final vacation and relaxation before the baby enters the world in about a month. The hospital bag is packed, the name is chosen, and the nursery is ready. And after a week spent cruising around Absecon Island and Cape May County, I think we’re ready. It’s my favorite place in the world, and although Chrissy isn’t quite sold on moving there permanently yet, I’ll be happy when I can have our daughter chime in at some point. I know she’ll see things Daddy’s way.
Another year, another fireworks gallery. This is officially our last July 4th fireworks display without a child to enjoy them with.
I haven’t picked up a bass since high school (we’re going back 10 years here), but I wanted to get back into it and find my rhythm again before my daughter arrives. If I can’t play Rancid’s ‘Journey to the End of the East Bay’ (one of the greatest bass lines of all time) at her bedtime, what good am I as a father?
Our friends and families came together today at Marsha Brown in New Hope, PA to celebrate a fantastic baby shower for my darling wife and daughter-to-be. And if anybody was ever wondering why I planned it in a town called New Hope, just think about. It’s just what that beautiful little girl in that belly is. A new hope.
Thanks to everyone who came out and made it possible. We love you all.

I’ve always wanted to start one, and as soon as I got to Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash in Red Bank, NJ this weekend, I figured it was as good a time as ever. Hopefully my future daughter finds them as awesome as I do.
