Goodbye Brian & Pam

I just wanted to wish Brian & Pam good luck in Alaska. We have had lots of good times and we will see you when you get back. Don't forget to bring Rockband back with you though, because you are all so talented as everyone can now see.

You are a beautiful example and inspiration to us all and we love you. I hope you have another 50 years left in you (as long as you don't go crazy) because there is so much more ahead for you.

Happy 4th of July!!!

Happy 4th of July everyone!!! I hope everyone had a fun day. We went to the zoo on saturday and had lots of fun. Xander is at a great age for the zoo because he actually knows what is going on. He knows what tigers and bears and monkeys are, but I am afraid that he doesn't know what a cow and chicken are. Although when we saw the monkeys he said, "mom look at the monkey, or maybe it's a cat". I guess they both have fur so that's all that matters. You will notice Xander's girly blue hat. We let him pick out a hat because it was really hot and he wanted the girly blue hat. Luke tried so hard to convince him to get a different more many hat, but he would not let us get anyother hat. At least it's not pink, I guess.
Caitlyn also discovered corn dogs and popsicles and she really enjoyed them.

New Place

The day you all have been waiting for has arrived - pictures of our new place!!! wOOhOO!!! It was built in the 70's so it has a lot of character and we love that.
There is Caitlyn rolling/army crawling around on the floor in upstairs family room equiped with those wonderful green curtains that were custom made for this home!!

Lucky for us the kitchen came with the pencil sharpener, old school first aid kit and a couple of yard sticks!!!
One of the best features is the huge backyard that has a volleyball net and a fire pit.

Of course I saved the best for last - - One of the two bathrooms came with this beautiful gold, metallic floor!!! The picture doesn't quite do the sparkly floor justice, but just imagine what a glorious sight it would be. SCORE!!!

All joking aside we love the new place it everything we need for our family to grow up. Xander turned 3 a week ago and got a Nintendo DS for his birthday which he loves. He plays super mario and thinks it is hilarious when he dies.

Caitlyn has started crawling too. She has two teeth now and does this army crawl where she pulls herself with her arms and pushes with her toes.

They are getting so big and this summer has been so fun with all the swimming and going to the park. I love being a mom.
