THE BEST EVER

If you haven't met them....you are missing out.
If you are not related to them... I feel sorry for you.
If you have never had one of Grandma's Sunday dinners...you should try to get an invite.
I really have the BEST grandparents ever. They have no rivals. And I am very lucky.
We got to spend an extended weekend with them in CA and we had a great time. Our kids love to go there, play in their fort, swim in their pool and eat Grandma's great cooking.
I feel very blessed that my grandparents have always been such a big part of my life. Their home feels like home to me and I know that I am always loved there.

Sitting Up


Will mastered the art of sitting up at the beginning of this month. He has figured out how to lay down without falling flat on his face (most of the time) and he rolls around to get what he wants. In the last couple of days he has been scooting by pushing with his tippy toes and doing a sort of army crawl with his arms. He kind of looks like he is going to do a push up.

Conversations I Wish I Didn't Have to Have

Kate and I were alone in the car a couple of weeks ago and a commercial for Chippendale's came on the radio. Living in Vegas this type of radio commercial is normal (Thunder From Down Under comes to mind). I sort of gloss over them and don't even think about it when they are on. I forget that my kids ARE listening.


This was me and Kate's conversation:

Kate: Mom, what is Chippendale's?
Me: Ummmm (wondering if I should answer this question honestly), it's a place that women go to watch men dance around in their underwear.
Kate: Why?
Me: I'm not sure Kate, I have never understood why women would want to watch that.
Kate: Uh, ya.
Me: It's sounds really embarrassing to me.
Kate: Me too, and weird.

I will now turn of all commercials that have to do with anything of this sort

NASCAR Weekend






Don't be jealous, but this last weekend the NASCAR race was in Las Vegas. Matt and I went all three days and had a lot of fun. Jen and Mike as well as Bryan and Aaron came to the Saturday Nationwide race with us.We got to meet Carl Edwards (our favorite driver) and he signed our hats and sweatshirt and told us how cute Will is. In general, I am not star struck. Mostly I don't care about celebrities. I find their lives a little interesting, but also think that most are vain, selfish dimwits. But not Carl (aka: He's So Cute, in our house), we waited for an hour to get him to sign our stuff. I'm laughing at myself as I write this. I have never asked or waited for an autograph in my life. It's kind of embarrassing. In Vegas they have what is called the Neon Garage. It's hard to explain how the Neon Garage works, but basically all the drivers, crews and their cars are in an aquarium and you can watch them work from the opposite side of the glass. It's pretty cool. We took Will with us and he got lots of attention. We saw a random performance by Kid Rock in the Neon Garage as well.


NASCAR races are interesting. The people watching is phenomenal. We've been to a few different races and the people are different at each track. North Carolina definitely had the most unique people to see. Sonoma, CA was a completely different group of people. Vegas is kind of a cross between the two. It's pretty amazing to go to a sporting event where 150,000 people attend. Getting out of the parking lot afterward is NOT amazing. It's downright annoying. It took us over two and a half hours to get home last night. It was worth it though. It is really fun for Matt and I to have something to do that we both really enjoy.

And yes, I know most of you who will read this will not understand how we could possibly enjoy cars going around and around. But it is oh so much more than that and it's just downright fun.
