Scene of the Crime

Maria and I decided to take Porter to Whitewater Falls today up in NC. For those of you who do not know the uber romantic story, this is where I made Maria the luckiest woman on the planet. That's right, I asked her to marry me on top of the waterfall. If you look really close you can see where we were almost 7 years ago to the day (Oct. 26th, 2002). The weather was perfect and the leaves really seemed to be at their peak. Porter had a great time. He smiled at every single person we passed on the way up to the lookout. If you have never been, you need to check it out.

More Birthday Pictures

We didn't get very many pictures of the HIne family because our camera was charging. So here are some more pictures with YaYa, Grandpa Doug, and Great Grandma Helen.

Thank you, YaYa for sending the CD!

Porter's Birthday Party

Well, we just finished up a fun day with family for Porter's birthday. He Turns 1 on Thursday but we decided to have the party this weekend. Porter's cousin and aunt and uncle spent the night with us last night as did his great aunt and uncle. Porter's great grandma, YaYa, and Grandpa came to celebrate with him too. We had burgers and hotdogs along with some cake. Of course Porter got his own cake. Check back soon for some videos of Porter destroying his cake.

Porter LOVES his new car.

And the box it came in.
