Its a Boy!!

On Tuesday I became a Dad again. This time was slightly different than the other 2. No late night trip to the hospital, no contractions for Beck, no hospitals, no first feeding or bath, no birth, no baby. But there was a little boy, a new name and a loving and supportive family there to support us, there also was lots of stress, lots of smiles and some tears. But most of all we are happy that Kyller Scott is now a Pickle. We are also glad the process is over and we can move on to the next chapter of our lives! Kyller is very excited about being adopted. Today I asked him if he was happy about it all and he said, "yeah dad I am happy and I feel like a new kid cause I am adopted." I am glad that he is happy about it and I hope that we can be good parents for him and help him with anything he needs. I feel like we are pretty lucky to have him in our family and we love him allot!

Seminar 09

We just got back from our annual Chick-fil-A operators seminar in Long Beach California. We had a great time even though the weather didn't cooperate! We had a few days of motivational speakers and activities and visiting with friends. This year was busy but fun. Becky got recognized in a regional meeting for her generosity in the community and her personal life and that was way cool for her. We also got to have dinner with her family that lives in the LA area. On our last day there we got to go out on the ocean and look for whales. We got to see one for a brief second but we saw hundreds of dolphins and some sea lions. It was a great day on the ocean. We also got to go to the Long Beach aquarium and that was cool seeing all the fish and sea life. We also found out that next year we get to go to Washington DC and I am way excited about that!!!

Thanks to the grandparents for watching the kids and Harley! It is always nice to know they are safe and well taken care of while we are gone.
