While I was home this past weekend I was able to see one of long time friends, Phillip, in action and introduce Connor to his first police officer and K-9. Phillip and I grew up in the same neighborhood and while I was the one playing baseball outside in the yard he was off playing cops and robbers. Who would have guessed we both would grow up to fufill our childhood dreams. Stay safe out there man! @ari_h90
This girl works a full time job, comes home and is a full time mother AND after Connor is finally asleep she becomes a full time student. Long after the day is done and responsibilities have been met she grinds out a couple hours of studying. I love you and I am so proud of you! Happy Birthday!!! @sara_vanderheiden
I would not have made it to this day without every single person in this picture and many more that are not pictured. It's been a long, bumpy roller coaster ride but all those ups and downs molded me into the person I am today. Thank you to everyone that sent your congrats my way and my families way, we are extremely grateful. @sara_vanderheiden @rvandy214 @jvandywarrior
This "little guy" is one year old today! He has already called it a night and is sound asleep but one day I wish to go back to this video and show him how crazy and funny he was his first year on this Earth. Older Connor, you are going to be an amazing guy and I am going to enjoy every moment I get to spend with you and see you become the man you're meant to be.
My Thanksgiving week with @smurphy_5 will be a moment I will never forget. Seeing the Big House, partying in Greek Town, spending Thanksgiving with your family, seeing The Hunger Games and Interstellar, The Henry Ford Museum, and riding the people mover to Joe Louis Arena to see the Red Wings were all great! But it would've been for nothing if I didn't have you to experience it with. Thank you for an unforgettable Thanksgiving! I can't wait to have you back in the south for New Year's. P.S. You stole all the good pictures and it looks like I copy you, when in reality I worked really hard on this! 😁😘
