Cool Dover Dad Re-Creates Album Covers

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

Today, I wanted to write about a human interest story that I read in last Sunday’s paper, I hope you don’t mind that it’s not food related.  Lance Underwood, a single dad who lives in Dover (Delaware), has been re-creating album covers using photos of his sons, Quentin and Trey.  What I found to be most interesting is the fact that he is not a professionally trained photographer, yet his work definitely qualifies as being professional.

Lance’s website featuring the re-creations started as a way for his father who lives in California to keep up with the boys.  His website has now gone viral and if you want to see more, check out his Tumblr page

I think this is such an amazing and creative way to capture not only photos of his sons but also the memories he is creating for them is priceless. Can you imagine how much fun they are having while learning the history of the artists as well as the significance of album covers.  In my book, this makes Lance one cool dad!


What album cover would you like to see re-created?

Saturday with the Seniors

Hello Friends and Welcome to the Weekend!

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day and regardless of where you went, what you ate or what gift you received, you were able to spend quality time with people you love because that’s all that truly matters.

Last Saturday hubby and I spent most of the day with our son at Appoquinimink High School’s Wrestling Team’s Senior Day – now that’s a mouthful!  Some of you may know that my son started wrestling after the Thanksgiving break and he finished the season with a 5-5 record due to a knee injury.  Saturday was his last match, which he lost but all in all he enjoyed the experience and bonding with his teammates and the coaches.

Prior to the match, each soon-to-graduate Senior escorted their parents/guardians onto the gym floor and presented their mother with a rose.

Malik enjoyed wrestling this season and regretted that he didn’t join the team during his earlier years of High School.

Wrestling at 170 lbs, this was his last match and you can see the disappointment on his face after the disappointing loss.

But like the good athlete he is, it only lasted a few minutes and after talking to his dad, he was back enjoying the rest of the matches with his teammates.

It was a great day and watching the team knowing that it’s the end of the season was more bittersweet for me than for him.

Good Season for Appo Jaguars
