A Marriage (and other milestones)

After 11 years together, we are now legally married! We got married in New Paltz in 2004, but New York did not recognize same-sex marriages until 2011, and finally, it was our turn!  The ceremony was short but very special, and "Gogo" was in town.  Our wonderful babysitter, Lucy, also came to help with the kids.  We celebrated afterward with a drink at Mickey Spillane's (on the house!).

Other recent milestones: I completed my Ph.D. (finally!!!), Avery lost his first tooth, and Caleb is officially done with bottles.  Carolyn was accepted to attend a mid-manager's retreat in Athens, GA, and she came back inspired about work and also her writing -- she is pursuing a couple of writing classes this semester.  I look forward to reading her work!
