A SHOUT-OUT TO THE FAM!

We’ve been postponing this blog because it would be impossible to give a shout out to the fam without blabbing about Arianne’s unofficial engagement.  But now that it’s official (congratulations Arianne and Carter!) we’re all about shouting at our family.

FIRST SHOUT:
Welcome baby Hazel! Tasha and Steve have generously given us our third niece to admire and make us baby hungry.  Isn’t she adorable?  Based off Hazel alone we've been considering having children of our own, but so far all we have is Clem and Monica, our loving chlamydia and mononucleosis plush dolls that Zach gave me for Valentine's day.  That's what I get for marrying a pharmacist.
 

SECOND SHOUT:
Welcome home from camp Isaac!  The “Determined Wolf” returned victoriously with mad skills like constructing orangutan lavatories, roasting bananas with peanut butter (actually pretty darn good) and bone collecting.  He even has the enviable skill of being able to start a fire without matches, which he attempted to share with Zach and Steve.
Please note the moccasins and multiple bones around his neck
Zach tried multiple times.  We now have multiple boxes of matches.


Max got impatient after Steve rubbed and rubbed with zero smoke to show for it.
The picture of patience.  I noticed he never gave it a go though.
I’ve vowed to never be without matches from here on out.

THIRD SHOUT:
Welcome baby Rodrik!  We thought we were so clever scheduling our trip for just a few days after the babies were due, and Hazel obliged but this little guy held out on us.  Even after a visit to the hospital to visit the expecting mum and dad we managed to miss him by about two hours.  Still can’t wait to meet him on our next trip to Utah.


After our failed siege on Tawny’s belly it was a long late drive back to Boulder, which we finally consider home.  For some people, home is where the heart is, but for us it’s wherever our gym passes are.  Now that we have those and I own a Boulder City library card we are officially settled in.
