Trip to Mexico

We had a great time in Mexico. Renting scooters, quads and parasailing were the highlights of the trip. Plus, making stupid faces and poses each time the photographers came around to take our pictures. The boys ate everything that wasn't nailed down. The weather was great. Wish you were there.

When all is said and done

"Mama mia sing along" is a must see. I was hoping to see a bunch of
dorks singing along with the movie and before I knew it I was the
dork. It was like a 1 hour and 42 minute karaoke session with all ABBA
songs. It was better than I thought it would be.

It's a BOY!

Here's a side profile of little TJ. On the DVD they gave us it shows him sucking his thumb. It's totally cute.

The Joy of email blogging

I just found a new way to blog. You guys probably already knew this
but it's new to me. Did you guys know you could email your blog posts
in? Wow! I don't even need to log onto a computer. I can just send it
in from my cell.
For those of you who don't know this little secret here's how it
works. First log onto your blog and click on dashboard, then click
settings, then email, then pick a word and type it in the "mail-to-
blogger address" That is now the address that you email your posts to
and you can set it to post immediately or save as a draft.
Who's the 'Best Bailey Eater' now???

How Many of These Places Have YOU Been

I am so jealous of this guy and it's not just his wicked dance moves. He's been a lot of places I would like to go. Check him out and count how many of these places you have been and tell me which was your favorite. For me I've been to 9 of these places. Tokyo was my favorite. They have this great all-you-can-eat steak restaurant. They loose money on me every time!

Hey everyone as you all know I haven't posted for a long time. It's only because I don't have anything to post about. I'm boring I know. One thing I'm NOT gonna do is open myself to your questions. I have too many secrets. Here is one secret I don't mind sharing. It's called It's a cool website and iPhone app where you can stream audio from the net. You type in a group or song you like and it knows what kind of music you like and randomly plays songs. It is worth checking out. Especially if you have an iPhone.

Trip to KC- Liberty- Independence - Adam-Ondi-Ahman

Last week my Dad and I went to Kansas City, MO. for a business meeting. I was surprised how green everything was. I always imagined Missouri and Kansas as a dusty tumbleweed place.(kinda like Bakersfield) While we were there we had some time to see some church sites. We saw Liberty Jail.They had a nice visitor's center. It was a neat multimedia presentation that really touched me to hear what Joseph went thru in that place. We also went to Independence, MO. and we saw where the temple will be built and the reorganized church's temple. My favorite stop on our trip was to Adam-Ondi-Ahman. This is where Adam went after leaving the garden. It is also the place where there will be the Grand Council when all the prophets including Adam return their priesthood keys back to Christ prior to the Millenium.

We had some delays in coming back home that made for a frustrating end to the trip, but the trip was well worth it. Go check it out if you're in the neighborhood.

The Most Exciting 4th of July in History.

Yesterday was so exciting it took me 1 whole day to calm down and blog about it. Although it was my sister Anna's B-Day that's not what made it so exciting. (Happy Birthday Anna!) The fireworks which were fun were not the source of such glee.
It was the Annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest. Last year Joey Chestnut won by eating 66 Hot Dogs and Buns in 12 minutes. After 6 years he brought the mustard yellow back to US soil from Japan. Yesterday Joey and Kobayashi squared off again. This time after 10 minutes the contest ended in a tie 59 hot dogs each. To settle the tie they were each given 5 more hot dogs and had a sudden death eat off. Joey won by eating those five hot dogs in 50 seconds a full 7 seconds faster than Kobayashi. Congrats to Joey the number 1 eater in the WORLD!

Me Protesting The Stupid New Law

Here I am protesting the new law.
Notice I am in compliance with my "hands-free device" in my ear.

It's a sad day in California. In Cali we can no longer hold our cell phones up to our ears. It's too unsafe they say. I think this is ridiculous because they're not saying you can't use your phone they're just saying you can't hold it up to your ear. That's just stupid. What are they going to do next require helmets to be worn in the car? After all car crashes are the number one cause of head and brain injuries. I am getting used to wearing my helmet just in case.

p.s. I know I need to strap it up for best effectiveness.

Our 1st Ultrasound...It's a...Velosiraptor?

This picture doesn't do it justice but I guess ultrasounds never do. We went in for our first ultrasound today and it was like a ride a Disneyland. A 1 hour wait for two minutes of joy. We were able to see and hear the heartbeat. We saw some very clear pictures of the baby but the ultrasound tech didn't snap the pictures quick enough so this is what we ended up with for proof that there really is a bun in the oven. It kind of looks like a small dinosaur. The tech said everything looks fine. We go back in on Wed to see the Doc.

The First Ultrasound

Next week we are going to have our very first ultra sound so I decided to look online for some advice on how to handle the situation. I found this very helpful video. Maybe some of you guys out there could have used this advice. I guess I'm lucky I found it in time.

Report on the EJ concert

I went to the Elton John concert and it was good. At the last minute I managed to sell two of the tickets and my friend and his two kids came with me to see Sir Elton. Man, that guy plays a mean pinball (piano). He rocked for 2 & 1/2 hours straight. He sang all his best songs and it made for a memorable/expensive experience.
Live and learn.

Calling All Elton John Fans

A while back I got this great idea to buy these Elton John tickets and sell them for a profit. It turns out there are more people who think they could make a profit from Elton John tickets than actual fans who are willing to pay more than face value. I bought 6 tickets thinking I would make anywhere from $50 to $400 profit. The tickets cost me $100 each and here it is the day of the concert and I'm stuck with them and all my friends and family have abandoned me to try and scalp them at the concert.

"That's what you get." Brenda said, "Never again!"

OK, so if I don't sell them I'm picking up 5 homeless friends and we're gonna sing "Sad Songs" together.

Some Better Days

I'm sorry for leaving everybody hanging on such a sad note. We have had some good news since I posted last. We found another dog and named her Angel. She has really become a part of our family and seems really happy to be out of the dog pound. Here she is.

We celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary by going to Florida. Visiting Disney's EPCOT center and watching the Space Shuttle launch were a couple highlights of the trip.

Brenda loved getting in the ocean in the Gulf of Mexico near Tampa Bay.

The Saddest Day of Brenda's Life

Yesterday was the saddest day of Brenda's life. Our dog Toby had to be put to sleep. It was a hard decision but we didn't want him to be in pain. While we were on vacation he lost a quarter of his body weight and went completely blind. The Vet suspected it was diabetes that caused the weight loss and cataracts. He was a huge part of our lives for the last 9 years and we have many good memories that will always be with us. Here's a little tribute to our baby.

Toby doesn't change much but Brenda's hair does check it out.

We'll miss you Toby!
