Visitors from Vancouver

Our summer so far has been pretty uneventful. We haven't been living abroad, and we didn't participate in Muggle Madness. We did however, have Rich and Becky's boys come and stay with us for four days before they continued on to my parent's home.

About Brandon:
1. I can't believe I have a 15-year-old nephew who's 2 inches taller than me and wears size 13 shoes.
2. He watches science shows for fun.
3. He's my arch nemesis in cards.

About Spencer:
1. He loves motocross & soccer.
2. He loves to tell exaggerated stories (without drawing breath from one story to the next).
3. When I took the boys to Costa Vida for lunch, he got a burrito w/ only chicken, rice, & beans - missing out on the entire Costa Vida experience.

About Chase:
1. He loves skinny jeans.
2. He still wants to be a chef when he grows up.
3. He is a dancing fool.

How we spent our days:
Spencer & Chase wrestled while throwing pillows, a blow-up mattress, and a soft Utah, Jazz basketball around the house. (Spencer's on the left & Chase is on the right.)

Scott joined in every once in a while.

Brandon played on his laptop.

or shot foam discs from a toy gun at his brothers while they wrestled.

We watched movies.

We went to a water park.

We went bowling (and I beat my best score of 37 with a 68 - I was on fire! & no, I wasn't using bumper pads).

We played cards.
Scott gave all of us a tour of his fire station.

This is a creepy dummy that I thought was a real person at first. Firefighters use them for drills.


  1. I can't believe you have nephews that are that old either! I'm jealous, I don't have any nieces or nephews at all! Looks like you guys had fun.

  2. awesome! Man I thought my niece was old and she's only 11. I liked the picture of the scary dummy.

  3. Does that dummy only have one leg?! I hope the people Scott rescues fare better than he did. Brandon looks like a man. I feel old.

  4. The dummy only has one leg & a huge gaping hole in its face.

  5. I wish I could have been there - I miss you guys!
