Almost right

Breakfast Conversation...

Brenden: "I'm groggy this morning."

Emmie: "You're a froggy?"

Brenden: "No, groggy means your tired."

Emmie: "You're a tiger?"

No longer single

We were recently released from our singles ward calling (sniff, sniff).  We would come home using words like animal,  nuts-o and crazy to describe Emmie's behavior.  It was at that point we came to the realization that she needed nursery.  I think we were just in denial for a long time.

We absolutely loved being in the ward. There wasn't much work involved, it was more just socializing with friends and we will miss them!  After three years, I don't know how well we will adapt to our new family ward.  We hear they are noisy but at least the noise won't be coming from just our kid. 

Emmie will miss all of you adopted aunts and uncles so come on over for a visit every once in a while or call us up if you want an old married couple with a toddler to tag along what ever you are doing.

Neighborhood Hobos, or ALIENS!

I think our neighborhood has a hobo or extra-terrestrial problem.  Here's our evidence.

Exhibit 1:  So, earlier today we saw a weird looking guy with a fanny pack running through peoples' lawns.  He was crouching down and picking at the grass when he saw us drive up and he quickly scampered off.

Exhibit 2:  Tonight while on a walk we noticed LOTS of weird markings on the sidewalks along with large circular piles of chalk dust.  These could be old-fashioned, hobo/tramp markings, but I'm not ruling out extra-terrestrials either.

Cryptic arrows with 3 slashes on the end.  What could it mean?!

Who, or WHAT is "BN"?!?!

Finally, the crop-circle-esque piles of chalk dust.  Perfectly round.

Any thoughts?

Cabin Fever

Well, we survived and it was wonderful.  Brenden,  Emmie and I drove up to Mack's Inn (Island Park, ID) last week and had a great time with the family.  Gregg and Rachael drew the short straw and had to drive with us in our new Paquito Vanito.  Note:  the drive is 16 hours.

We decided to have lunch in Flagstaff, AZ at one of my favorite sandwich shops, Crystal Creek Sandwiches. It was just after 10:30 AM and I didn't know if they would be open but we found out they open at 9:00AM.  I think this is totally bizarre since they only serve sandwiches and beer.  Best veggie sandwich ever.

We stopped and had dinner with some great friends in Cedar City and they even fed us breakfast the next morning.  What service.  We didn't take any pictures with Jake and Andrea but just know they are very good looking people.

What was fun about this vacation was everyone in the Clawson clan was able to make it... even Rusty... the original in-law.  These pictures are in no order and I could have posted all 500 of them but these few are proof that we did have fun together.

Thanks to Grandpa and Grandma B for letting us take over your cabin.  We loved every minute of it!
