Boston Leigh Hemenway! - WELCOME!

Congratulations to Erin & Andy as they have added a baby girl to the family... Boston has arrived at a healthy, happy 7 pounds 2 ounces... Mom and daughter are doing well, and Andy is taking a nap!

Once again Congrats! Totally Awesome!


Another congratulations is in order as Roger hit the track tonight! He didn't literally hit it, as he stayed upright on his feet the entire time... Roger logged 1 mile running, his first run not on a treadmill since his hospital stay.. very exciting to see him run!

Roger leading the pack!  Left to right Todd, John, Tom, Roger, Tom and Becky... thanks to Christina for snapping the pic!
