Highland Games

A couple of weekends ago we were in Flagstaff watching Cam play baseball. While we were there, Flagstaff was having their Highland Games. We had the best time! We ate lots of food- scones and sausage rolls, we watched men throw telephone poles, bought the boys swords, and bought Chris a Kilt. Good times were had by all.

It's great to be 8

Well, my baby is eight. I can't believe he is so old. He has had a great week of a birthday. On Monday he refused to do any jobs and picked where we ate dinner. On Tuesday it continued until the end of his birthday party. This Sunday he complained that he never got to pick out Sunday desert- so today he got to pick out Sunday desert. He certainly knows how to work it to his advantage. Here are a few pictures of his great day.

Christopher picked out his own cake- of course baseball.

Christopher loved eating his cake and pizza.

Jackson created an interesting look with his ice cream.

Summer Update

Because of a small illness (pneumonia) our summer has been a little less than expected. Our dance lessons have been postponed until I am feeling a little better. We have seen a lot of movies, watched a lot of t.v., and gone to a lot of baseball games (way to go Andrew and Cam). We have also done some home improvement project-that may have possibly added to the length of my recovery time:).

Here are our new floors (luckily we did not install these) and the baseboards that Chris, Kimball, Thomas and myself installed. They did the office and I did the rest of the house (just joking they helped a ton.)
I am super excited about the floors and very grateful that we are almost done. We finished the baseboards last night (my saw broke in the middle and I was crying in sadness and Chris was crying in happiness) and now we just have to finish the finish work.
