Loyal readers: My travelogue from last month’s Golden Week adventures in Japan and beyond will resume soon! Here are the links to catch you up on the story so far:

My Mother’s Day Tribute to Kathy post last month got me thinking. Garth’s Blog has yet to run an exclusive Daddy-Daughter blog post, and there are dozens of pictures of Lena and I from the past year that have never publicly seen the light of day.
Several of my favorite, previously unreleased photos of Lena and me from the past year are below. A few of these may look familiar to those who can access Kathy's Facebook page, but most of these pics are all new:
Lena, 15 months old, tries to pull the curtain open while Daddy takes a shower. Every morning!

Saying goodbye to Daddy’s “No Shave November” beard

Daddy brings gifts home for Lena from Osaka, Japan... The story of last month's trip to Japan and Micronesia will continue at the beginning of July on Garth's Blog!

Now, let's go vintage with some even older Daddy-Daughter pics. Somehow, these are also just now being unlocked and are appearing here for the first time!
|5 1/2 month old Lena and Daddy share some happy bonding time on the floor after work.|
This is one of my favorites!
Before my morning jog, I fed and read aloud to Lena the Exodus story of the Israelites crossing the Red Sea from my Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0, at the McCoy's house in Santa Maria (link).
|After staying up all night working at Delta and then going to church, Daddy crashes hard with Lena on the couch. Our friend on Facebook commented: If they were to both open their eyes, they would be looking right at each other!|
There are so many other adorable new photos that could be unlocked and shared, but this is a good start. Stay tuned for my upcoming hiking blog post for a roundup of the past year's outdoor adventures with Lena.
I love being a daddy!!
