I have really enjoyed making my blog and am very grateful for all of you who have been stopping by and reading my tiny contributions to the blogosphere. I know I am in the minority (havn't found that many Dad Bloggers as of yet) however thanks to the few Dad's and all you Mom's for the great support. It has been fun reading all of your blogs too and I am enjoying getting to know all of you. Having said all of that, I am excited to have received my first Blog Award!

Thank you to Jessica @ Punk Rock Mama for the award!  I am honored to accept it!
