Snow and the Wrong House! – 1/11/2019

We had a large snow storm hit St. Louis and I decided it would be fun to go out driving in the snow. Corvin was excited to join me as he also wanted to drive in the snow. I picked a decent sized street and started heading west. I had an idea where we might go, but decided to just see where the weather took us.

As it turns out, I found a very well lit parking lot with about 8 inches of snow in it. I started off driving around. Eventually, Corvin got his first turn driving in deep snow. It was great practice for him, but he was not ready for the streets. It turned out to be a great decision as there were at least 100 cars off the road during our drive. I was worried several times about if we would make it or not.

When it felt like we could go no farther west and should o home I decided to risk it and just surprise Steve at his house. So we drove over and parked in his driveway. He wasn’t answering his phone, but that didn’t stop us! Ring on the doorbell a few times and text him some photos.

Eventually we called Jackie, Steve’s wife, who answered her cell from out of town. She suggested that we go around back and knock on the sliding door till the dog barked and made Steve see what was going on. As we were preparing to go around back, a neighbor called to us from the sidewalk with a flashlight to see what was going on.

To make a long story short, we were at the wrong house and he wanted to know what was going on. I apologized and we moved on. I called Jackie and got the right house number and we had a nice laugh about it.

I was glad the neighbor stopped us before we really scared the homeowner of the wrong house. It was a great adventure with Corvin!

Babysitting Nathan – 9/8/2012

Steve and Jackie wanted a night out and I wanted to see my buddy, Nathan. So they brought him over for a night of fun at “Uncle” Hogan’s house. Nathan was ready for me, cause he is walking all over the place now!

The lovely couple looked ready to go, but like all first time parents, had lots of information to help us out Sealed

Nathan seemed to have a great time. He only left me one stinky diaper and went right to sleep. Truly a fun age!


Steve and Nathan – 4/15/12

We spent an afternoon with Steve and Nathan just catching up. Now that Steve lives a bit farther away than next door, I don’t see him as much. And Nathan is growing up so fast!

After driving them around for a while, we ended up at Danelle’s parent’s house. It was a pleasant afternoon of catching up with a good friend and “my baby”.
