Free Wood = Build Some Shelves

Finally homes are being built again on our street. As I watched the transformation of the street I couln't help but notice all the quality wood that gets thrown away into the dumpsters. Free wood just sitting there for the taking, what to do? I looked at my garage and noticed the mess and knew that shelves were required to clean up some of this.

After a couple nights dumpster diving around the neigborhood I finally had exactly what we needed. I got to work and a couple hours later....WaaaLaaa.

I know what you're thinking, hey Brad it still looks messy. Well it's a huge improvement from what we had before. Amber told me I should have taken a before and after pic but we don't have any before pics so just trust me.

Fathers Day Gift

So let me tell you how smart Amber is. Somehow Amber convinced me that I wanted plants for my Father's Day. What she knew and I later found out is that she was 9 moves ahead of me from the beginning. Knowing that once I did the work and planted a few it would turn into many, not because she wanted more but because I would.

Here we are 5 weekends later and finally a finished Fathers Day gift. We are very pleased with the results even though it cost me a lot more than a few plants in both time and money. We are extremely lucky to have a nice retired couple across the street who love gardening. They helped a lot and gave us many of their plants that were overgrowing.

Let us know what you think! : )

It's a..........

We had our ultrasound today, and we found out what we are having. Little baby Cheyanne will be joining our family in November. We are so excited to have a baby girl around the house. We are teaching Brock how to say her name and he is doing really well, in a couple months I think he will have it down. We can't wait to see her and meet her cute litte personality. Enjoy the pics.

It's about time

Well over six months have gone by and i am finally gettimg around to making a new blog post. As you can see it isn't high on my priority list. But thanks to all for pleadings to post some pictures, I am finally doing it.

We have had an eventful last 6 months or so. We started another new business in January, we went on a great trip to Mexico with friends, we have enjoyed the ups and downs of parenting and yes we are pregnant again. (Due Thanksgiving day)

Brock has grown up so much. He is now a little boy and not my baby. He started walking around Thanksgiving 09 and hasn't stopped. He loves to talk and just repeat the same words over and over again. His favorite thing to repeat right now is "truck truck truck". We will be driving and he will say that for 10 minutes staight, it is so fun! He loves to play outside and push anything he can push around, especially strollers. Unfortionatly we don't have a very toddler safe backyard yet so we play in the front yard which isn't my favorite. He also has loved the pool this year, he loves to splash in and have water splashed in his face, it is so cute he just laughs and laughs. We love him so much and love to watch him grow. Here are pics of him the last few months.

We went to Mazatlan Mexico in may with some friends from our ward, the Townsends and the Ravstens. We had a blast. We did 3 different time share presentations and got most of the food and activities for free. The time share presentations defiently weren't the highlight of the trip, but they only lasted about 90 minutes (the first one was only 2 minutes, no joke, that is why we went on the other ones) so it was worth it when you look at what we got in exchange. We would totally do it again. The boys played golf, us girls got massages, we got a ton of free food, free deep sea fishing, and some other things I can't remember it all. We had so much fun relaxing by the pool and the beach. The boys did some body surfing and the girls did some shopping while sunbathing.

So far we have had a great year. We are excited to be expanding our family. We find out in a week what we are having so that I will try to be prompt at posting what the baby is.

This year my mom made Brock a scarecrow costume, it is so cute. He left the hat on the whole time, he never does that. The little witch in the Pics is my niece London, my mom also made her costume. Here are some pictures


Sorry it has taken me so long to blog about our diamond hunt, obviously we didn't find the diamond. But we had a blast riding our bikes around Denver. It was so fun to do that together. Here are some pics from the day.

Wish us luck!

So a radio station here in Denver is doing a scavanger hunt for a $15,000 diamond ring. I enter and Brad and I were selected to participate. We are so excited. Of course we would love to win the ring, but even if we don't we are going to have a blast riding our bikes around downtown. I will take pictures and post them later. WISH US LUCK.
