Annual Winter Walk in Duke Gardens

This year the winter weather pushed this walk back a couple weeks. Today was beautiful and we were glad to spend a couple hours walking around Duke Gardens. Cadence is 2 1/2 years old this winter and acted as if she remembered taking these pictures over the years. There was a nice student sitting in the chair reading today and Cadence went up to her and said "you are sitting in my chair." We then asked her nicely if we could bother her for a couple moments while we took our picture. She was fine with moving and Cadence and Raleigh did great.

All in the Name of Science

It's been pretty convenient (for us) that Cadence is within the age range of the children that we are studying. She's been a very willing guinea pig, and has helped us practice a number of tests, try out new technology, and tweak procedures. It's a good thing we have a lot of toys in the lab.

Genuine and/or Proud to be a Father

All I wanted out of this year's Superbowl was a close game.  Honestly, I wasn't really leaning either way.  Both teams had their good guys and worthy stories.  However, I'm thrilled that the Saints walked away with it.  Seeing Drew Brees both literally and genuinely sharing the victory with his son was heartwarming.   I know it's because I'm a father, but to see a man who truly realizes how special a child is, especially in that moment, moved me. I know I'd want Cadence and Corrina right there with me. That was unexpected and completely refreshing.
