Funny Kid

Zander has always had a a good sense of humor, even when he was a baby. He also has a way of saying things that just cracks me up. Tonight we played a game together as a family and then when we were done and we told the kids it was time for bed Zander did not take the news well. He told us, "Go away. Go outside and find a new home." When we just laughed and didn't appear to be leaving anytime soon he said, "I'm going to go to my other home." What a little turkey!! I am always afraid that he will grow up too fast and that I won't remember some of the funny things that he says so I had to post this one.

Labor Day Camping

Coaching volleyball has put me behind on my blogging so I am slowly starting to get caught up. We decided to do a last minute camping trip to Scofield Reservoir over labor day. We went up after church on Sunday and set up our tent. We ate tin foil dinners and s'mores. After dark the kids got glow sticks and had a great time running around the tent and bouncing on the air mattresses. In the morning it was windy and freezing. Our campground only had a fire stand instead of a fire ring so it was difficult get much warmth from it. We ended up eating breakfast in the tent to be out of the wind and then we bundled up and headed down to the lake for some fishing. It continued to be really windy so we didn't get much fishing action. We ate our lunch in the back of the truck and them packed up and headed back home. I remember camping and fishing many times with my family growing up and we always had a fun time. It occurs to me that Haylie is now old enough that she will have a memory of trips like this. I hope that we are making some great memories.

I thought I would feel older...

I turned 32 this August. Somehow, when I was younger, I thought I would feel so much older in my thirties. I don't feel like an adult that should be taken seriously (maybe I shouldn't be). I have noticed a few gray hairs and a few more laugh lines. I have also noticed that I am just a little bit more stiff after playing a good game of volleyball. It is amazing how time just keeps ticking away and everyone keeps growing and changing. Here are some pictures of my birthday celebration. We went to dinner at Wingers (the only place in town) and then came home and had some cake. Nothing too exciting but it is always great to spend time with my little family.
