Who needs Saturday morning cartoons...

when "The Adventures of SharkBoy and LavaGirl" comes in 3-D!

He's taught her a thing or two



What does a coyote say?

To explain this a little before you watch...There is a big park about half a mile from our house. It has baseball fields, batting cages, play areas and also a small zoo. When I say zoo you may be thinking elephants and giraffes, but that is not the case. They have monkeys, birds, bobcats, a wallaby, ducks, turtles, elk, eagles, coyotes, a porcupine, and several other small animals. The zoo is so small that the 2 dollars it costs to get all of us in is paid on the honor system. Though it might not be exciting for older kids, my kids love it. We met some friends there not so long ago and while we were there the coyotes were howling about something. Kate has been very interested in what coyotes say ever since. Enjoy the show. Please try to look past the older brother who was throwing magnets at Kate's head. That was put to an end as soon as the camera was off.

Family Carnival at USU

A couple Saturdays ago they had Family Day up at USU before the big football game against UofU. The kids enjoyed candy, a fishing pond, climbing on a big tractor, Jake dug for dinosaur bones, and the traditional carnival type stuff. The highlight was Jake getting to pet/hold a snake. He is getting more brave in his old age. We had a fun time, but unfortunately I can not say the same for USU football. They got spanked AGAIN. At least they scored this game!
No fear in that smile.

I'm a big kid now!

Is it just me or does Kate not look like such a big kid these day? After she, in no uncertain terms, picked out her outfit this morning and I got her dressed, I noticed that she is sooo not a baby and hardly even a toddler anymore. She is a cute little girl...and Bryan wanted me to add, daddy's little girl.

Happy 31st Birthday My Love

Sure the sweater was too small and the wallet was not quite right, but maybe in the next 31 years I will have better luck with the gift buying. By then we will be in our 60's so I might have it figured out by then. We love you best!

So long Bear Lake trips, for the summer



We made our final trip up to Bear Lake for the season, on Saturday. We got there earlier than we had before, set up, ate, played for hours, and when the wind picked up so did we, and we headed home. We all had a great time, and crashed hard for the night. We will miss you Lake, till next year.

Just passing the time


I don't yet trust Kate to not get into things while I am in the shower. I always get some toys and books and stick her in the crib while I clean up. The other day Bryan came home while I was in the shower and found that she had been having someone hand her things while she was locked up and then laid down amongst the mess to read. Funny girl.
