This past weekend our little family headed to Seattle for a wedding. We ended up going to a Mariners game. I think back to when I was a kid and went to Mariners games with my dad and now I am taking my son there. I don't know why I get sad thinking about that stuff but I do. I never thought I would be this old, this fast.  So cool to watch my son look at everything, he is growing up so fast. Whoever reads this blog, just remember to take in all that life has to offer, life blazes by. I hope one day my son will say he had the best memories with me....

Growing up

I can still remember being a little kid with not a care in the world, when my biggest worry was having to go to school. I played little league and loved being outside, I was just a kid, no need to work yet or take on responsibility.

My wife ended up going to dinner with some friends last night so I was able to spend some quality time with my son. He is so innocent! He was taking all the pots and pans out of the cupboard then went and took all his toys out of his toy box. I just watched him, he is more and more like me everyday, its so cool how the rolling pin from the kitchen is one of his favorite toys.

I tell Ryder everyday that I am so proud of him! If you take a look back at your own life, just think what a few more "I'm Proud of You's" would have done for you.

I pray he always stays innocent and playful, he is the happiest boy I know. I think that's how we all are supposed to be, carefree and innocent, but we let life get in the way and it tries to steal our fun.

Ryder thought my feet were the coolest thing last night, here is a parting picture.

The Beginning

This will be a peek into my life, my family and my thoughts. 

Growing up I always wondered how my life would end up. It's interesting to look back and see how each step was directed by God, even the times I went off the path. 

In 2009 my life changed in a big way, at 29 years of age I was finally getting married.
I met my wife (Reina) teaching Sunday school at church, I think that is a pretty cool place to meet the person you will spend the rest of your life with. On July 10, 2008 we started emailing each other, and then on January 3rd 2009 we were married.

A little bit about my wife. She is very charming and everyone loves to be around her. She is loving and likes to go on roadtrips. We love driving together. She thinks about me a lot and always wants to make sure our marriage is a 10!. Did I mention she is stunning too, and my best friend!
So let's now fast forward to 12/9/2011. My life changed again. I became a father that day. Ryder Lewis Johnson was born. I was blessed with a son. Now I can understand a little more when the Bible talks about God's love for us. I love Ryder so much, he is my little buddy. It is also a huge responsibilty too, he mimics everything I do, looks up to me. He needs a father who will lead him, just as my wife needs a husband to lead her.

Now up to the present, my son is almost 17 months old, walking around, wanting to do everything I do.  Here are some updated pics of him and my family.

This song sums up what I need to do with my family :)
