Roby Dale

Roby is our oldest son.  He'll be 21 in just a few short weeks.  It's so hard to believe he's a grown man now!  Roby's a pretty laid back guy, with a great personality.  He's super quick-witted and sharp. 

He's working pretty much full time now, making some bank.  He and Robert get together for lunch every couple weeks and have a great time. 

He's a great cook, and loves to try new things!!  Honestly, I don't know that there's anything I've seen him NOT try!  He and I went to a cooking class last spring sponsored by the Texas Beef Council.  Had a great time, learned a whole lot about beef, and ate some great food!  The funniest part about it was that I won the class through a contest for "Girls Gone Grilling".  I invited him, knowing that he loved to cook and grill.  And except for the instructors he was the only guy.  Secretly I think he kinda liked that!

He, like Justin, is quite the comedian.  And never afraid to poke fun at himself! 

I'll never forget a time when Roby was little, probably barely 6.  We were driving him home to his mom's and the kids like to do word problems in the car.  Robert said something like "If you have 7 apples, I eat 1, Rachel gives you 5 more, Savannah needs 3 for a pie, but Justin gives you 8, how many do you have?"  Before Robert could finish the sentence Roby piped up "Wait, I don't have that many fingers!!"  For some reason that just cracked us up and I've never forgotten that.  Kids...gotta love 'em!

Here are a few more random pics of him...
