Melena's Birthday Party

Some pictures from Melena's Birthday party. Nonny, Becky's mom, got a pony for the kids to ride. All of the kids had a blast

Breanna's Birthday Party

Breanna, one of Jade's friends on our street, had a birthday party at Pump it Up. All of the kids enjoyed the party. Rhett and Tim, Breanna's father, even had some fun getting in on the action and raced on the obstacle course.


Paul and Vanessa came to visit us for Halloween. We had a blast in the new neighborhood and had a lot of trick or treaters. We decorated the house up for the night and some of the kids were too scared to get candy off the porch.

Pumpkin Carving Party

We invited the neighbors over for a pumpkin carving party and everyone had a blast. I will have to admit that pumpkin carving has come a long way.

Roanoke Firefighter Auxiliary trip to the Layman Corn Maze

Each year, we enjoy going to the Layman Corn Maze. This year, the Roanoke Firefighters Auxiliary planned a trip to the corn maze and we enjoyed the day with many others.

Preston's Birthday Party

Fleitz Family Beach Vacation in September

At the Aquarium in Roanoke Island, NC. We enjoy taking the kids here.

Preston, Melena, and Jade at the pool of the house we stayed at.

Rhett and Bill went diving off the coast of Hatteras. We dove on the wreck of the Dixie Arrow and had a blast diving with some sand tiger sharks. View More here.I also got to photograph a house fire north of where we were staying. Luckily no one was injured, but the wind gave the firefighters a hard time. The house you see was badly damaged as an exposure to the house next to it that you can't see because of the smoke. The house were the fire started burned to the ground.

Preston's First Day of Kindergarten

Here are some pictures from Preston's first day of Kindergarten. Preston was so excited to go to school that it left very little time or opportunity for pictures or for Mommy or Daddy to get emotional. Preston left for his first day without any glitches. Daddy gave Preston a haircut the night before his first day.

Here is one bonus picture from the recent Salem Avalanche game we attended. Preston got a bowl of ice cream in a Cincinnati Reds baseball cap. I can remember my father taking Royce and I to Cincinnati Reds games and getting the same. This was a defining moment in my fatherhood. If it worked for my father, then it works for me. I enjoy following in his footsteps.
