ECI Dads is Back!

Hey, I've decided to get motivated to blog more often. I can't believe it's been almost 2 years since my last post - that is pathetic!!

Anyway, with the help of another stay home dad, Will, we have started our ECI Dads group up again. We have met several times in the last 2 months and are planning more get togethers, both with the kids and a dad's night out. I am excited about this opportunity and thankful that I am getting help from my friend Will to get ECI Dads going again. Stay tuned for more posts.....

Terrible Twos

OK, so Sonia and I am finding out what it's like to have a 2-year old throwing fits. Not that these photos I am about to show you prove this. So take time to enjoy looking at these photos because this is not what he is always like! He's still a joy, though, Sonia and I both agree on that!

Mexican Riviera!

Ok, Sonia and I finally chose a vacation spot for us to go to in October. We will be dropping Noah off at my mother and father-in law's house and flying out from Moline to Los Angeles where we will board a Norwegian Cruise Line ship. It will be the longest time we've been away without Noah. We will spend a week on the cruise ship visiting several places in the Mexican Riviera. We're very excited about this trip, we need it! We've never been on a cruise before, so we don't really know what to expect. I think it will be a lot of fun!

Here is a photo of one of the cruise ship we will be on:

Vacation Ideas?

It's time for another blog-I need to post more often, I know there are other stay home dads, I won't mention names, but one in particular who lives in Michigan who posts a lot more than I do, so this is a start!

My wife and I want to go on vacation for a week in October by ourselves without our son. We thought about traveling to Europe but we met with a travel agent last week and she informed us how expensive flights are to travel overseas. We decided we want to stay in the United States, unless we find a reasonably priced package deal. We are leaning towards San Diego and southern California, Utah/Idaho/Las Vegas, New Mexico, and Maine. I know it's beautiful in Maine in October with the leaves colors.

Whoever reads this blog, could you suggest ideas on vacation spots you have visited, or have heard about that would be fun? We want to do alot of active things such as white water rafting, hiking, etc.

Hope to get some good ideas, time is running out, we need to book a vacation soon!

Spring is Finally Here!

The other day it was beautiful outside so we decided
to go to Meadowbrook Park in Urbana. Noah hasn't
had much of a chance to play outside so we put him
in the swing and he loved it! I think spring is finally
here!

Here is a link to a video about stay-home-dads. A stay-home-dad and a professor are interviewed by Matt Lauer on yesterday's morning show.
