His and Hers!

I converted Mandi to the ways of Mac! I noticed my iPhone disappearing more and more around the house. I would eventually find Mandi tucked away in a room with my phone. So it took no arm twisting when I told her that I wanted the new iPhone 3G S. She inherited my semi used iPhone and seems to be in heaven. I was so excited when I saw the line at AT&T on Friday morning. It was short and I was in and out in under a half an hour. Last year I waited 8 hours in 98 degree weather! Sad thing is...I'm already excited for the next release!

Interesting . . .

The RIGHT way or the WRITE way??

I found this from another blog and well... it just makes you think.

1) The bandage was wound around the wound.
2) The farm was used to produce produce.
3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.
4) We must polish the Polish furniture.
5) He could lead if he would get the lead out.
6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.
7) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present.
8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.
9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.
10) I did not object to the object.
11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.
12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row.
13) They were too close to the door to close it.
14) The buck does funny things when the does are present.
15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.
16) To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.
17) The wind was too strong to wind the sail
18) After a number of injections my jaw got number.
19) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.
20) I had to subject the subject to a series of tests.
21) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?

There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France. Quicksand works slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig. One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down. English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all.

Just makes you think huh... and no wonder our kids have a hard time learning to read and understand our language!

Happy trails!!

I was doing my best at helping him hit a can or two, and we did it!!

Like father like son. Kolby can't get enough of shooting with the big boyz. (Even if his gun isn't real.)

Josh and the boyz. What could be better than dirt, grass, mountains, 4 wheelers and guns???

We never seem to remember to ask someone to take our picture so here we are again in our "pose". Better than nothing right???

Eating lunch at our "spot" with Grandma.  ( I was checking out the carbs on the cookies) Ya gotta have cookies!!! 

One of our families favorite things to do is to go with Grandma and Grandpa on the 4 wheeler and Rhino for a day of riding, lunch and shooting! Josh and I drove the 4 wheeler, and the kids were lucky enough to ride in the back of the Rhino with the Grandparents, complete with big fluffy pillows and cozy blankets to keep them all comfy.  We always have an amazing time just riding for a while, then stopping off somewhere to eat a little lunch. This time, the boyz brought their BB guns and shot at anything made of metal or plastic until there was nothing left. Grandpa even brought out his bigger guns and shredded a few cans too. There was a stream nearby, and we had a great time throwing rocks in and making huge splashes, and throwing big sticks in and watching them go under the bridge and down the stream.  Then, we got back on and continued riding out the other side of the little canyon where we crossed the road and had ice cream sandwiches at a little "mountain market".  After hanging out there for a bit,  it was time to go so we jumped back on the trail and headed back.  There is nothing like a day of riding with Grandma and Grandpa. So fun and so relaxing being up in the mountains with the ones we love. Can't wait to do it again soon!

Preschool is over!

Kolby and his awesome teacher Mrs. Kari.

Waiting for the little performance to begin.

We are so proud!!

He didn't do all the actions or sing all the songs, but he sure looked cute!

Kolby had his preschool graduation a couple weeks ago at a park nearby our house. It was a really cute program filled with poems and songs they learned through out the year. Normally, our Kolby is a total "ham" no matter what he is doing, but this time, he just stood there and kind of sang, and kind of did the actions but,  MOSTLY had his finger up his nose or his hand on his crotch. Ahhhhh. . . the life of having a little boy!!
