New home for our blog! (this is last post on here on Blogger blog)

Friends take note, we've moved this blog over to a new Wordpress site, the website is:


At the top of the new blog you sign up to follow with your email or just check back to parkergarvins.com periodically. I am not posting as often but instead posting in large chunks a few times a year. The kids love to get on and look through old photos and memories so I love the idea of keeping this thing going until they're old and crinkly. Just harder to find the time. So anyway, update your bookmark! Thanks lots,
- Ben and family.

Some chess photos and players of late.

Lewis and the twins all play lots now, and they've been winning stuff, too. Fun! Although not necessary! Here are some photos from tournaments of late:










Papa soup.

There are only a few things I make beyond pancakes and breakfast sandwiches. And this is one, my famous "Papa soup". The most amazing thing about it is all the kids eat it. Amazing!


Bailey after skating outside.


Twins doing some sorta geometry thing together.

And a tiny one :)
