This blog is about my life. Nothing more, nothing less. I thought that "Take the Fam" made for a good title because that's what we do. We love to travel, and "take the fam" wherever we go. Also, my friends have always made fun of my stories most of which begin with the word "So", and my ability to turn a short story into a long one. So, that is how most of this collection of rambling thoughts and events will begin. I hope you enjoy!

Where does the time go?
So, it's been a while since I last posted. I've been slammed with the new job, the kids, getting the house ready to (hopefully) sell, and everything else involved in living a full meaningful life. Needless to say, I am exhausted, but it is great to being back to a busy life again.
I'm cool, I'm two now.
While a lot of time has passed since I last wrote, there has not been a whole lot going on. Winter has come and gone, and spring is now in full bloom. Miss Lala had a birthday and is officially a "terrible two". Miss Giggles is also quite busy with activities. She has a dance recital coming up and soccer season is here. Once again, Daddy Nobucks is coaching and I had forgotten how much fun it is. The weather had been so odd recently that we were only able to get one practice in, and it was a short one. Our first game was this past Tuesday, and we had a good showing. The kids are a little older now, and it's really funny when they ask me if we won. As a competitive man, of course, I know the exact score, and at what time each goal was scored I do not reveal this information to my star athletes. A good coach always keeps them guessing. I just tell them that we are only out here to have fun, and if you had fun, then we won. I think they are on to me, and I may have to devise a new scheme to keep them guessing. But in all seriousness, it is a lot of fun, and win or lose, we have a great time.
I wonder if these would fit Daddy?
Need I mention that since I last wrote the Cats made an awesome run to their first Final Four in 13 years! We had a party at my house with just the four of us, and even though the outcome left a little to be desired, March was a fun month in my household. Apparently, Daddy Nobucks is too loud for Miss Giggles and Miss Lala, but I just apologize and tell them to get used to it. They'll come around sooner or later!
That's about it for now. I promise I'll try to get back on a routine - of more than once a quarter!
