Connor and Tracy Nemetz (my brother and sister-in-law)

Connor and Tracy Nemetz from curtis nemetz on Vimeo.

Connor and Tracy are definitely not the typical love story. They were roommates before they dated, they moved to Texas together before they were married, and they now have Tracy's three year old Daughter Lilly as a part of their family.
Though not typical, their love for one another has proved itself to be true. I have never felt more proud of my little brother than at the moment he made his commitment to be a loving husband to Tracy and Father to Lilly. I feel so honored to have been able to surrender my role as a best man and capture this unique and beautiful love story on film.
I love you both and am so proud of you guys. We will support you and help you in any way we can.

If Calvin and Milo were dog balloons...

Our kids went to a magic show today where the magician magically made them some balloon dogs. Milo wanted a blue one too but I guess he didn't say it loud enough. He came home with the orange dog on the right while Calvin came home with the blue "dog" on the left. This is seriously the condition of the two dogs when the boys came home and showed me what they got.
When I showed Vali the balloons she mentioned how the state of the dogs really sum up the differences between our two boys. Milo is pretty organized, structured, obedient, and likes things to be orderly while Calvin... well... just look at the balloon.
Don't worry, we're not putting them in boxes.

Daddy Olympics

My good friend Dog (Jeff Pray) and I took our 4 boys out to dinner. We are going for the "dad of the year" award this year...
It was pretty much awesome and we got some sweet looks.
Disclaimer: I did pound a Red Bull and a Margarita in order to get through this event.

Our new home.

If home is where the heart is then consider this my chest cavity.

Wednesday, May 27, 2009


Sorry for the lag in posts. We found out last week that our landlord wishes to sell our house... so we have to move out. A new baby, 6 weddings in 6 weeks, Vali's back at work and 100 degree weather... PERFECT TIMING!!!!
So you know what we did? We became the freakin' Lords over our own Land! Boo Yah! We bought a house. I will put some pics up here for you all to see as soon as we get over there again. Thanks for being patient.

Watch out Martha Stewart....

Here is just a tasty sample of what I've been cooking up for us these past few days. I don't want to intimidate any of you other dads out there with limited culinary skillz... but seriously, this meal was delish. (There was honey added as a side entree/ garnish)

Stay at home Awesome

For those of you who were wondering... "what did the Nemetz boys do today?"

The River is empty again....

So we went to Costco. Every woman aged 30-60 either laughed at us or made a comment about me having my hands full. As if I wasn't aware of that. I should start responding by pointing out the obvious to them. "Oh yeah, my hands are full, and your hair is really frizzy. Have you considered switching conditioners?"

We didn't end up actually buying anything, but I'm still proud that we did it.

A River with Water!

We were SO excited today when we woke up and saw water in the river behind our house. Our kids are a bit confused now... they thought a river was a large flowing mass of sand and dirt... but hopefully they will understand someday that things in Bakersfield aren't always the way they should be.

My first day

While this doesn't sum up the day (it wasn't too bad) I thought this was pretty funny. I told Vali that when she got home I would make dinner so she could hang out with the kids for a while. So tonight I busted into one of our pre-made meals our friends so graciously made us. The cookies bag said the temp and time to cook these doggers at.... and I still managed to turn the cookies into a bunch of turds. Sorry to whoever made these delicious cookies for us. 

Oh Dang

6 weeks is up. Vali has gone back to work. Pray for me.

Mazel Tav!

For those of you that don't know... the things on the boys heads are breast pads. They are used by breast feeding mothers to combat leakage. Our boys think they are hats though and rush to put those little yamikas every time Vali feeds Oliver. So... mazel tav!

Did that happen Lasterday?

I've heard a lot of people's reasons for having kids, but I'm pretty sure we have kids to make ourselves feel good. I have these three little guys... two of them know how to talk... and I know that they represent half of me. So when they say things like "Poscible" instead of popsicle... or "lasterday" instead of yesterday, I laugh and think to myself "man I must be pretty funny and cute!"

No Milo... you don't have to be a Superman.

First off I have to say let's all give it up to Vali for the amazing videography skillz in this video. Yeah baby! I know I should be nice... I mean after all I am a professional and shouldn't hold her to the same standards, but seriously, come on. 
Second, I would like to say how proud I am of my son refusing to take part in this horrible church tradition of sticking our kids on stage and making them sing a song about not being super. I think he's super... and I'm pretty sure Jesus thinks he's super too. As a side note I am also proud that he convinced his girlfriend to take part in the anarchy as well.

The DUGGARs...

So there's this show on TLC where this family (the Duggars) have had a kid every year for 18 years. The best part is the show is called 18 kids and counting... cause this lady is always pregnant. I don't think Jim Bob (the dad) even lets Michelle (the mom) get out of the hospital without impregnating her again. We are starting to freak out that people think that we are the next Duggars. We're not. We will be taking some drastic measures to end this continuously flowing river of children. Otherwise, I'll have to get a wide angle lens or something to keep this little tradition up. 

Yes, their ages are currently 2, 1, and 0.

What the heck are we going to do this summer?

I've started asking people for creative ideas of what the heck to do with the boys this summer. With three little guys I'm pretty much doomed to house arrest when Vali goes back to work. So, I ask Vali's uncle the other day what they did with their three little boys during the Bako summers... "I think they just played in the dirt" was his reply. "So, for 3 or 4 months you just stuck them outside in the dirt?" I asked not believing the simplicity of his answer. "Yeah" he replied. "So was there any shade or anything?" I asked trying to get more details. "No... kids are more resistant to the heat than we are."
So, with Uncle Greg as my inspiration, I took the kids down to Toys R' Us and we bought some tractors. Turns out he might be right... they spent an hour and a half out there today playing in the dirt. Lucky for them, we have some shade. 

And Oliver did what Oliver does best... he kicked it in his car seat.

Oliver's Hair cut

So here are some pictures of Oliver's haircut. Also, I am thinking of doing a daily blog about life as a stay at home dad with 3 boys.... My only concern: nobody's actually checking blogs anymore.
So let me know if anyone out there is still in the Blog Oh Sphere.
If I do this, I will include stories such as the one that happened today... Milo and Calvin filled our fish bowl with Play Dough. I barely saved our fish's (Dorthy a male Beta) life.

Mas Oliver

Oliver Jeffrey Nemetz

Here are some photos of Oliver. If you are my facebook friend you can see a bunch more photos of the little guy and us bringing him home. We are having fun... the birth story is crazy so if you have the chance, send us an email or give us a call and we will give you all the details. All I will say is that we were in the Hospital for 16 minutes before he came out.

Our San Francisco Trip

Our San Francisco Trip from curtis nemetz on Vimeo.

The Password to watch this video is milo

This is the second video shot with our new Flip video camera. I would recommend one of these for everyone. They are super cheap and so much easier to carry around and actually use then a standard video camera. Thanks Steve and Grace for hooking it up on the Flip.
As for our trip...
We had such a great time visiting you all! Thanks especially to my mom and dad for letting us stay in their Berkeley condo. We definitely wouldn't have been able to stay so long without it.
In this movie you will see Jack and Liam Moxley, my Grandma Nemetz, Vali's uncle Jerry and aunt Val, and our friend Lauren Cooke.
