Ben...What a Guy!

This is Ben. As you can probably see, he doesn't really enjoy picture taking, but he loves me so he pretended to not be too ticked off.

This is Ben sleeping. He especially doesn't like pictures of him sleeping, but it is so rare that he is home and able to sleep in his own bed, I thought I would try to capture the moment. I am really happy to have someone to snuggle with. This is Ben's office in California. He is the regional director for Delaval (A dairy manufacturing company). He is in charge of everything west of Kansas, which is why he is gone a lot.

This is Ben playing and singing with the kids. He is taking a break from his favorite Carole King "It's too late Baby" song and humoring them with a little bit of "The Little Mermaid." What a great dad!

Random pictures, I know, but all to celebrate my wonderful husband and MY NEW DIGITAL CAMERA!!! Can you believe it? Last Monday he mentioned that he was in the mood for a banana and I said "There are bananas at Costco! We could go there and get some and also a new camera" and he said "OK"! I hurried and got the kids in the car before he changed his mind. A few hundred dollars later, I had my digital camera and he still had no bananas (they were out). Yea for me, and thank you BEN!

Hooray for Ben! What a good husband and dad.
See, they can take hints. And even outright "let's go get a camera."

Hey this is Ben's cousin Brigitte Arrington, now Linford. I guess you could say I'm totally blog stalking you guys! I got here from Emily and Sara's blogs (in case you're wondering who to blame), and I like checking your blog every once in awhile cuz you are so funny! I especially liked, err was oddly fascinated, by the post about the snails. Glad you got your camera! TTYL.

Good Job Ben! Love the sexy between the sheets pic, we should make a Ben calendar :) Your a good dad to play little mermaid for your girls (Was that Reese dancing in the back? What do you play for him?? Maybe you should get your great balls of fire goin or the Utah/USC fight song or somethin for him) Can't wait to see more posts from here on out!

I enjoyed the post. Can't wait to plan a trip down to visit and see the real thing. I am so glad you got your camera. I was about to put together a pool and buy you one, and send Ben the bill!

I got your message...this is Alma Tuck's wife, and he is the Alma from Kennewick WA! What a small world I will tell him you said "Hello". Your blog is so cute! New toys are always fun! He is a VERY busy husband too...but I bet I can get him to leave a comment soon, he loves hearing from old friends.
