The first moments after birth. Charlie just opened one eye and peered up at daddy.

Its tough starting life with everyone wanting to know how you measure up.

Daddy admiring his boy after all the poking and proding was through.

Charlie wanted to celebrate his birthday by staying up for almost twelve hours. Mom and Dad, not knowing what else to do, let him.

He's such a cute little guy, and easily soothed.

Dad had been predicting the black hair, Mom just loves it, as well as his furrowed brow.

When Dave goes on his long hikes in the summer, he is always sure to take a picture at the very beginning, when we are so positive and optimistic that everything will go smoothly and exactly as planned. Experience has shown that things are never as easy as was thought, work out as planned, or anywhere close to it, but that is where the adventure lies. This picture is kinda like that. I guess that's why this is the Adventure Myers Family.

Shell (& Dave), CONGRATULATIONS!! I wish I could be there. He's such an adorable little guy. Were those blue eyes I saw?!

Good luck on your Myers adventure. It sure sounds like it will be a lot of fun, work, but worth it in the end.
