March 2010 - Morgantown, WV

Winter finally broke and the weather was unseasonably warm.  We enjoyed some WVU basketball and baseball games.  We played in the backyard.  And we hosted a wedding shower for Courtney's cousin Gretchen and her fiance Melvin (our fellow North Carolinians currently building transmission lines in West By God Virginia).

An absolutely perfect Spring day.  The "tink" of an aluminum bat...

...some fellow baseball fans...

...and a beautiful woman by my side.

James, on the other hand, slams it home with authority.

Only Ry can rock that hair, those short shorts, no shoes, and a pink bike.  I'd swear this picture was taken in 1970.

Our second WVU basketball game.  This time we beat the Cincinnati Bearcats.

"Big Fat Daddy" showing how he got his nickname.

Apparently the game was boring compared to listening to "The Jonas Brothers" (aka The Backstreet Boys)

Ready to go home after the best part of any Mountaineer game, singing Country Roads after a victory.

J designed and made this shirt to commemorate his 100th day of school at Mountainview Elementary.

We hosted a Wedding Shower for Melvin and Gretchen.  Courtney put out quite the spread.  Ry is sampling the cupcake quality before the guests arrive.
