Traveling travelers

Hey guys! I miss you I hope you miss me too. By the amount of messages I just responded to, I’m going to say yes.

First I’m so glad you guys are loving our Periscopes Lol They are really fun to make. It’s a quick way to update everyone on where we are, what we are up to and how the kids are doing. I didn’t realize that would be so popular. We have done those Facebook Live posts but it’s different. Thanks for all the great comments while I’m filming those. We’ve only done 5 so far but I will keep it going since you guys like it so much. For anyone not in our Periscopes, its not under NotbatmanYet. Just ask me for the name and I will send it.

We have been traveling a lot. It’s not even the start of summer but this year we are going everywhere. June 21st is the official start of summer but I feel like we needed to get out of all of this rain and bad weather. It also helps I have my own plane and a girlfriend who absolutely wants to go anywhere we go. She is loving our weekends and so am I. I feel like we are getting closer and more connected every week. We still haven’t exchanged the I love yous yet. I will let you know when that happens. Soon I think, very soon. Stephanie is such a wonderful woman. She is perfect for me. I love hanging out with her as much as possible. We text during the day a little and at night it’s just a given she’s coming over Lol We can’t help it. We are all over each other after the kids go to bed. I never knew my house had so many fun places to have sex Lol We are definitely having fun with that. It’s been a really fun relationship and one I’ve wanted for a while. It sucked being alone with no one to talk to or go do stuff with. She really is making my life happier and fun.

The kids Lol My gosh guys. These kids are growing up so fast. The boys did very well in school. My daughter is going to start next year. I think giving them all a little boost as soon as I can with their education is the best thing.

My work is going great. I work on the emails and I show up at the office maybe once a week to see how things are going. It’s almost like I don’t do anything but cash in fat checks monthly that Lindz is working her ass off to make us. It’s great. I love it.

We have a very heavy travel schedule. This weekend we will be in Miami Beach, Florida. Yes I know some of my beach bum friends will be waiting! I can’t wait to introduce Stephanie to you ladies! I really think you all will get along with her well. I did warn her you ladies love to party and go out turnt up so she’s prepared, I hope. We are leaving when she’s off work. She brought her suitcase over last night so we can leave right from here. I’m taking 1 nanny with me, Heather, she wanted to come. I wonder why, it is the beach Lol

I’m still rocking the no beard look and I did get a new hairstyle, again. Check out our Family Facebook page as well as our new Periscopes. You will either like it or hate it. Let me know. I will update after we get back home. See you guys later, have a wonderful weekend! I love ya’ll!

She’s my Bahama bikini mama

Guys, I’m really tan right now. I’m so happy to be home. The boys had their last day of school on Friday and we decided to celebrate with a trip to my favorite vacation spot, the Bahamas. I took Stephanie with me and 1 nanny to help out at night. The nanny said sign her up for every trip this summer because she had a blast. Stephanie asked when we can come back I said we can come back 1 more time this summer if she wanted. That was a solid yes vote. The kids had so much fun playing in the sand and water. We actually got to go on 2 excursions of sightseeing this time around. I had never done that before. It was easy sitting in the back of the jeep while they showed us around. It really is a beautiful part of the country.

At night Stephanie and I snuck off for some adult fun. She looked so beautiful. I mean really really pretty. She was so happy all weekend and I think she’s starting to fall in love with me too. We still haven’t talked about it. I’m not ready. My dusty heart is waking up though and it feels really good. It feels right. My kids adore her and are starting to get attached to her. We are still going to do 2 nights a week for now and switch off weekends at each others’ homes so we can still get the kids acclimated.

In other news I have this entire summer planned out. I’ve been working on it since January. We actually have a schedule of when we are traveling and when we will stay home. We won’t be staying home much Lol Especially once Friday hits and Steph is off work. I asked if she wanted to go on our next trip next time and she said yes. That’s in 2 weeks. Alex is doing great but I don’t want to push his little lungs. We are back on the medicine that cleared him up and it helps a lot. Heston is great, Peace is great. Everyone is great.

I’m happy. I really am things are so chill right now I love it.

I came on to tell you guys a quick update but mostly to share some more photos. Head over to our Family Facebook page to check out all of the photos I uploaded last night and this morning. It takes time to upload then label them and put them in the right albums. But as you will see it’s more organized now. I worked hard on it last night when I got the kids to bed. The beard is gone Lol Yes I look 12. Okay not really but I still look kinda young.

How are things? I missed you all. Especially one of my readers who I stopped talking to at the top of this month. I see you still come here. I’m happy you still care. You will always be a dear friend to me but we can’t talk right now. We keep finding out way back to each other, don’t we. I mean I don’t know why but there’s something. So be safe, know I do miss you and I’m sure some day we will find each other again.

I love you guys, talk to you again this week! Go check out my smoking hot girlfriend in a bikini. Dammmmmnnnn I’m a lucky boy!

Rowboat Book Club Book #77

We voted on this book last month. S. E. Hinton’s The Outsiders. A lot of you haven’t read this book since high school.

The Outsiders is about two weeks in the life of a 14-year-old boy. The novel tells the story of Ponyboy Curtis and his struggles with right and wrong in a society in which he believes that he is an outsider. According to Ponyboy, there are two kinds of people in the world: greasers and socs. A soc (short for “social”) has money, can get away with just about anything, and has an attitude longer than a limousine. A greaser, on the other hand, always lives on the outside and needs to watch his back. Ponyboy is a greaser, and he’s always been proud of it, even willing to rumble against a gang of socs for the sake of his fellow greasers–until one terrible night when his friend Johnny kills a soc. The murder gets under Ponyboy’s skin, causing his bifurcated world to crumble and teaching him that pain feels the same whether a soc or a greaser.

Happy early Mother’s Day

Good morning Batfans. How is everyone doing? I’m great. Life is smooth sailing right now and I love it. The boys are almost out of school once they are out it’s all about having a fun summer. My daughter is growing like a weed right now. She’s still small for her age but we are waiting for a growth spurt any time now. I’m doing great. I’m back to exercising and taking the dog for a jog with Peace in the stroller after we drop the boys off. It’s become a routine. The days that we can’t get outside because of nonstop rain and yes snow we workout in the home gym. Peace plays with her toys and we listen to music for kids. I didn’t like it at first but it’s supposed to get her used to the songs they will use at this school. I’m pretty happy with it now and I have memorized most of them. She sings along but not the words yet. She is become waaaayy more vocal finally. She’s such a little sweetheart. She’s so smart. I think she’s going to be the smartest one of my bunch. I don’t know. I only have to show her things 2 or 3 times and she gets it from there. The boys had to be shown over and over until one of them figured it out then showed the other. Usually Heston.

Good news on the adoption process, we are still in the loop. I don’t think we will get to adopt our new girl this year. I have to have patience with it. My adoption agency is working hard to figure out the best match for our home. I would love to just order a child like Amazon but that’s not practical and probably not smart Lol I want to complete my set of kids but I also know God has that all planned out and very soon my daughter will be here. I’m good with 4. Stephanie does not have kids which is okay by me. She’s also glad that I do have kids because she said she’s always wanted to be a mom. She has dated guys with kids before and she said that was hard when things ended. She loved the kids and wanted to stay in their lives as a family friend but both situations didn’t work out and she said it was probably for the best.

Stephanie and I are doing great. We are still in the just happy to be together phase. We laugh all of the time. We are now texting a little during the day. Just on her breaks at work. We decided not to spend every evening together that way we can all ease into this but we are doing what feels right. We skipped Monday and will skip tonight too but tomorrow she will come over for dinner and spend the night. We will skip Thursday and then I’m taking the kids to her place Friday night after she’s home from work. I’m glad she lives close to a Target that way I can go get anything we might need. We don’t have any plans but she said there are some fun places we can take the kids and if we had to we can just drive into the city and do our usual things. I’m trying to show her every part of my life but there’s still some things she doesn’t know yet.

She’s well aware of my past with Meri. I was upfront and honest and told her to google me. She just laughed and said how can anyone believe the tabloids. That’s been my position from day one. If you believe a tabloid you are not smart, at all. If you believe everything you see on the internet coming from “unnamed sources” or people who have zero access to me, you are also not smart. I’m so happy she looked at it herself and shrugged it off. She said she knows I got caught up in a situation and blamed for all kinds of crazy things but she isn’t worried about my past, she trusts me. I trust her too.

I know she said her sister is going to come by some time Saturday. She wants to meet me and the kids. I guess she has been talking about me nonstop. That makes me feel good. I don’t know guys, this may be the first big relationship since my divorce. I’ve dated a little but no one has been as great as Stephanie. I’m really enjoying getting to know her and hanging out. Dating is hard with kids. I have to balance everything and keep my mind on what is best for the family.

I just posted a bunch of Marine Corps pictures of myself and my family members who served to our Family Facebook page. I had been meaning to add those to the Marines folder I have on our photo albums but didn’t get it done. They are FINALLY in there. I added about 80 or so photos. Most of them are me and yes I haven’t changed much Lol I was tall and skinny wayyyy back then too. It was an honor of my lifetime to serve but near the end I just wanted out. I didn’t agree with the things the government asked me to do and I was severly injured making my decision easy. 8 proud years of my life and I made it out with my mind in tact. Sort of Lol I think I’m doing pretty good I know a lot of my brothers and sisters from my service time have not bee as fortunate and I pray for them to heal and live a happy life. I keep in touch with most of the guys I worked closely with and have done my best to support them however I can. It was an important time in my life and I’m glad I finally get to share my experiences through all of my photos. Go check it out and leave comments. My family and friends really enjoy reading the things you post. I’m happy to share as much as my life as I want to. I’ve made some really great friends off of my blog and Twitter and I hope you all enjoy watching my kids grow up through the photos.

Mother’s day is coming up this weekend and I have zero plans to do anything. I mean I could get the nannies to celebrate with me since Sarah has basically been their mom since day one. I do always send her flowers so that’s about all I do. I don’t know. It seems weird and without being in a longer relationship with Stephanie I just don’t want to make it weird. We will be leaving at noon on Sunday so she can go to her family Mother’s day party. They make a giant fuss over her mom and I’m so happy to hear she’s so close with her family. That’s very important to me. She did ask if I wanted to go and I said it’s too soon for me, sorry. She gets it.

So have a happy Mother’s day to everyone this weekend. I won’t be able to update more until next week. I have to get some work done the rest of this week and won’t find the time to update. I love you all and I will talk to you guys again soon!

Weekend with Stephanie

Hey guys. How is everyone? Who’s going out for Cinco de Mayo tonight? Well I guess today also. Anyone? I’m not. I’ve already had all of my weekend festivities and I’m tired. Stephanie left a little while ago. She had to get home to do laundry, go get her groceries for the week and take care of things at her apartment. We are all invited to come stay at her place next weekend so we can see how that goes. I already know how it will go but that’s okay. I accepted and I’m looking forward to seeing my kids over there. We will have to put the boys in the same bed because it’s only a 3 bedroom but we will work it out. Peace will have her own room so I like that a lot.

The Stephanie weekend went very well. She was helpful, nice, and fun for the kids. Peace did warm up to her and we all had to adjust to how things go. The kids just wanted to sit on her the whole time. They are such snugglers. We spent a lot of time trying to do things with them and at night we spent more times doing things to each other Lol I’ve had more sex the past 3 days then I’ve had in a loooonnng time. That’s not the main reason she stayed, however, it was a giant bonus. I told her the sooner we try to see how the kids are with you and how you are with the kids the better for me to talk more indepth about dating. She agreed and was up for the adventure.

I’m tired. It was a lot. She even said she was tired which is good beacuse she needs to get this parent thing is full time. I don’t get a break unless the nannies take them for a few hours.

I did like waking up next to her in the morning. That made it all feel more real and I guess feel comfortable. She loves to snuggle. I had to keep the dog out of the bedroom and that was a small issue. He’s so used to sleeping at my feet. The kids did come into the room and they let him in so I would wake up with him there either way.

I would give this weekend 2 thumbs up. I mean I did score the weekend at her place invite. That means it went well, right? I think it’s working out fine. We did not even get near the I love yous yet. I’m not ready. Frankly, I don’t know when I will be ready. It’s going to take time. I don’t think she’s ready either. I’m good if it happens later, like the end of this year Lol Maybe sooner, I don’t know guys. It’s hard to gauge that, especially the first one. You can’t leave it hanging out there. It’s awkward.

So how is your weekend? Anything new and exciting going on? I just uploaded the photos from this weekend to our Family Facebook page, check it out. I put a bunch of photos of Stephanie with the kids. She looks so happy and beautiful.

I will start getting back to all of your messages later. I need to go get clean things up and put my house back in order. I hope everyone has a great Sunday! I will update more this week. Work will keep me busy but I should get some free time in the afternoons. I love you guys!
