I have to start off with my best friend and confidant, my wife Amanda.
Here's a picture of us. If we look slightly fiendish here,
it's because we're secretly plotting your doom.
We were married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony, on July 14th, 2007.
And just less than a year later, at 10:55am on July 13th, 2008, she
gave birth to the best thing that ever happened to either of us.
Michael Lee Boats, 10 pounds, 12 ounces, 21.5 inches. My son!!!
Twenty-one months later, on April 6th, 2010 we were joined by another angel,
our daughter Kathryn Ann Boats, or Katie for short.
And last but not least, on February 28th, 2012, missing being a "leap baby"
by less than eight hours, came our third bundle of joy, Matthew Isaac Boats.
Life continues to be one great, wonderful adventure....
