Ava is a mermaid!

I had a ton of fun in Washington this past week with Brianne, John, Alex and V. The Washington girls are both growing up so fast! It was sad to say good-bye to them!! Look, won't be long until Alex is taller than Brianne!
The week I left for Washington, Ava decided she could swim. Well, she gave her mom a heart attack when she jumped in from the side of pool and swam to the steps. CRAZY!

She also played a little game where she swam to save her hat.

The girls LOVE to play "Streaker" where they lap the downstairs naked yelling, "Go, Streaker, Go!" (Corey came up with it...) Well, the new style of the game was "Crazy Underwear Heads." Yes, they both have on 3 pairs of panties, on various body parts.We are having too much fun this summer! Who can beat swimming and streaking?

Happy Birthday, Corey!!

Make sure to wish Corey a HAPPY BIRTHDAY on June 19th if you get a chance! Corey has been working so hard (LOTS of hours!) but still making time for fun stuff like quick trips to the water parks here in town. Ashlyn thinks it's so cool that he used to be a lifeguard at Big Surf! Makes me wonder if he gets the urge to tell people to "walk!" or to do some after-hours trips down the slides to re-live the good ol' days! The girls in this house are super proud to get to hang with the cute lifeguard at the waterpark and are so proud of our man!

Training Schedule

Here's Ava training to fly.

And a little time under the stack.

Training in the kitchen, training on the Wii, training, training, training.

And the un-photo'd dad in this house training on the nachos. It's how we do it.

Very few words, lots of pictures!

We've been busy working and playing. -We definitely have enjoyed the playing part more!

Rachel can fly!

Madilyn is so hungry that she ate a fake watermelon slice!

Ava living the good life south of the border!

When can we go back?

The Christmas morning camp-out with new sleeping bags!

Ashlyn is so BIG! She got her ears pierced just before going to see Santa.

OK, I enjoyed the working part because of the company! Thanks for the days and days and days of help Dad!

Ahhhhh!!! Sugar rush!!!!!

A tale of two blogs... The Good!

The week of Halloween 2008 had a very decisive two part tangle of emotions that are being shortly split into two blogs. So here we go with the good!

I think I look great in Mom's jacket. That's all I'm saying. I look good. Real good. That's it. Nothing else to say. Except that I look good. So good.

I got to spend a weekend with my family in Utah and had the best weekend ever! It started off with a journey following the rough riders Dad & Grandpa. My forearm is still sore from pulling the throttle back trying to keep up. Thanks for the great time! Good picture though, huh? I look good in Mom's jacket, no?

Why'd that guy on the right have to ruin this photo? It's like a photo of a rosebed with a cockroach on one of the flowers. Adrie is so CUTE! Alaina (also cute) is such a good mom and I'm glad we got to see each other.

Here's the gang, centered around Mom and Dad's "yellow" flavored shake. That's right... yellow flavored.
I was proud of Ryan when he slipped a bite of peppermint milkshake to Trenton! Way to go!

Trenton is my favorite youngest nephew, by far. He looks like he's trying to figure a way out of that towel in this picture. Can you see it? He is such a good baby. Ryan and Erica are awesome parents and made me proud.

Again with the cockroach? Rahcel has such a pretty smile! Trent-dog is perfect!
You three make a great family! Trenton's lucky to have you guys as parents. You're lucky to have Trenton as a son! A match made in heaven!Thanks to everyone for making my weekend so great!
And now.... scroll down for the flip side of good emotions.

A tale of two blogs (cont'd)... and The Bad

And now for the bad....

A little unexpected renovations to our house. We had a toilet water line (into the reservoir tank) come loose and spray water into our house all night. We woke up to an unfolding nightmare, where the clean-up company found a ton of black mold growing in the wall behind our kitchen sink. The water damage from the toilet caused damage to most of the walls and flooring to the downstairs part of our house. The mold caused our kitchen to be remodeled.

Here's a picture... it's kind of like that ABC show "Extreme House Makeover". Here's a photo where we were waiting for the "big unvail."

These people will do ANYTHING to keep you in suspense! Ha ha! So funny....

Ta da!!!!! Here's what you get Williams family! McDonald's cheeseburgers for a month! Yeah!

Here was our old entryway. So 1990's. It had to go.

Slip 'n' slide anyone?
