These pictures were from 2009, sometime in the Spring.
Jackson wasn't even one year old yet. Lainie was the same age Jack is now.
We lived in the Willo district in downtown Phoenix.
I had just met Bill.
Jackson's dad had just moved to Minnesota.
It was a weird time.
But on this particular day, the kids were playing on the floor, scattering toys everywhere, making a huge mess, and I was sitting on the couch snapping pictures of them, and laughing at Jackson trying to eat a banana the wrong way.
It was a good day.
