Happy Birthday Big Boy!

It's hard to believe, but our oldest boy turns 5 today!  Tonight we'll eat Papa Murphy's Family Favorite Pizza (1/2 Pepperoni, 1/2 Hawaiian) and he'll open his presents from Dad and Mom.  Sunday, after church we'll have a big party with family and friends.  Photos of this year's Monster Truck Cake to come.

So to our ever creative, full of energy, story telling, monster truck loving, green eyed boy: Happy Birthday!  We love you!

Backyard Improvements

As I mentioned earlier, we are reclaiming our backyard this year.  For too long we've allowed the dogs full reign while we stayed inside or out front.  We started with a fence, then some major poop pick up, followed by Dana pressure washing the deck, and now the play set.  We'll continue by planting the previously lush garden bed with flowers once again!

The kids, are thrilled with the new development.

I'm a big geek.  Some of you may not know this, but I love to create puns and to find illogical arguments, and even create my own.  So last night this illogical tidbit came to me:

There are 6 people in our family.  4 have blue eyes and 2 have green eyes.
The 4 blue eyed people in our family can take amoxicillin, the 2 green eyed people are allergic to it.   So green eyed people are allergic to amoxicillin.

It may seem ridiculous, but next time you hear or read an argument or hypothesis on the news, you may find something just as ridiculous being said.  Just listen to politics, talk radio, or read some recent archaeology findings.

PS if you also love puns, it makes you very good at answering the jokes on Popsicle sticks.

Nothing To It

Gates are for climbing over, right?
