Another great weekend in Vegas this year. Only difference was I had Fynn with me. It was a ton of fun with our friend Chris Dominic and his son Aidan.
Hilarious new friends.
This photo is on its side on purpose. The Muppets were hilarious!
Playing for ALL the M&M's...
Dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe.
The crew gave me a bouquet of kale and broccoli for my birthday today. A perfect gift given the past twelve months of transformation...I have been downing a head of kale with two raw eggs, berries, apple juice and flax seed oil over that time along while presiding over some big changes all over the place. Much more to come on that front!
(And yes, I am off to get a haircut - the Barry Manilow look is not helping...)
Today our youngest son, Harper turned 8 while I turned an age a little bit north of that. His brother bought him a monogrammed robe and slippers that gives him that Thurston Howell III vibe.
Harpo swam into this world in the office at gHQ in those manic years where life = g and g = life. We are working hard on changing that but as Founders know, differentiating away from that you have worked so hard on doesn't come easily and is in fact difficult to see.
We are celebrating with a boys weekend this weekend in Las Vegas to watch the Sevens Rugby. The boys have never been to Vegas so it should be a ton of fun.
(PS - Typepad is putting in hyperlinks all by itself and I have no idea how to kill it - sorry!)

May there be many more to come.
We started the morning early with 4.30am contractions. We got up and went for a walk on the beach at dawn. At the furthest point away from our apartment at the south end of the beach, contractions quickened. A fellow beach walker who happened to be an ObGyn watched Kim's gait and suggested we head to the hospital.
I ran back to the north end of the beach and into Billy's cafe to ring the midwife. We all met back at our place and it was game on. Well, we thought it was game on. We didn't know then that it would be a 19 hour game! But what a day. In glorious Spring sunshine we spent the day in the backyard and in different rooms of our little apartment labouring away. Dad sat in amazement watching our midwife at work as he filled the pool for Kim. As a doctor he hadn't seen this style of birth for many years! The same can also be said for my Mum who was an ObGyn.
Mohican, our trusty dog woke to his first cry when he arrived. The pup came over to give Fynn an approving lick and headed back to bed.
All up a life changing day for us.
10 years on and so much has happened. A second son, a new country and a new business.
Despite the 100 degree weather, our Summer gTea with 60+ gMums is kicking off this afternoon at Grant Park.
We have teamed up with B Line, a local delivery business and have these great branded trikes for the event. They are so cool. I see a whole new distribution and waste management channel. As well as a great way to keep fit!
