Basketball Jones

Brody loves basketball. I think it started with High School Musical (which he was obsessed with for a month or so). He plays for 30 minutes or so in the morning and the same each evening. He's getting pretty good. Above is the sweet faces he makes each time he makes a basket. You can tell he feels pretty proud of what he has accomplished.

Ah, the sweet taste of victory!

Since We Moved

Brody has been having a great time since we've moved. For his first week in Idaho he got to spend time with his cousin Gregory. They had lots of fun.

Then we went to the Oregon Coast for a family reunion. We all had so much fun.

Isn't Brody's dad handsome!!

Our last full day in Oregon we went to the aquarium.
The puffins put on a show for us. They were quite funny.
Brody insisted on holding grandma's hand as we wandered the park.
The shark tanks

No wonder he wanted to be with his grandma. She's so much fun. There were glass floors so you could watch the sharks swim under you. Brody wanted to get up close to get a better look.

Now that we are back Brody and Drage have been helping grandma in the garden.

And playing basketball. He's pretty good for a toddler.

Happy Birthday Becky!

I have known Becky for almost 10 years now. We started out as coworkers at Papa Kelsey's. Then she dated and married my brother. Because I knew her before I have always felt like we were already friends and not just because we were forced to be through marriage. However, I'm glad my brother picked such a creative, smart, fun girl to be my sister-in-law. I couldn't have picked someone better for him myself (though I do take some of the credit since he may never have asked Becky out if it weren't for me).

Here are a few of my favorite memories/inside jokes just for you Becky!

Blee Blah Bleeding
Mini salads

I'm so glad you're part of the family and I look forward to sharing many more memories with you. Happy Birthday Becky!
