I can hardly express how much I adore the twins' hair after swimming.
Too bad he didn't make this pose while he was in his cherub costume at Halloween!
How to cover up those problem areas while in a swimsuit:
(Or deal with two fussy toddlers who both want to be held.)
Reflecting on how fun it was to have family in town over the past little while and how sad I am we might not be going home this summer. (Darn the cost of 5 plane tickets now.)
Ryan trying desperately to act like he looked cool in those safety goggles he wore around for weeks after getting Lasik done.
This was actually a really big deal - most ophthalmologists won't have Lasik done on themselves and Ryan was set on not doing it as well. It's just the risk - if they lose depth perception or something goes wrong, their goes their surgical career. But I guess he eventually changed his mind and just got sick of being blind as a bat. Some of the other doctors thought he was crazy, and I'll admit it was kind of a scary time. But it went well, although he may re-do one later that got a little over corrected. Besides the paranoia of getting trauma to the eyes post-surgery (hence the constant goggles), his eyes did look a little nasty. My sister was cracking up when she was standing by him when someone asked what he did for work and he tried to sound confident saying, I'm an ophthalmologist when he himself had these nasty bloody eyes. :)
Loving the cute little church boys.
