So we were driving along today, on our way home from Cabellas, and this little beauty comes on the radio:

That's right -- Ditty, by Paperboy. 1993. I've never heard of this, but my extremely music savvy husband exclaims, "this is paperboy, turn it up .... this takes me back to my roller-skating days ...."

Love him.

PS He spent the whole afternoon trying to convince his friend Craig, who owns a skating rink (IN MICHIGAN) to have a 70s, 80s, 90s old school rap night.

Our life has settled into a nice little routine lately. We currently have 2 proctor boys - Daniel and Billy - and we're loving it. We get a 3rd boy this weekend, more of short-term (probably about a month) and we're super excited. I was pretty nervous about having proctor kids, but it's been great so far. Maybe we've just been extra lucky, we do have great kids.

We've been rock climbing a bunch lately, and spending as much time up the canyon as possible. Since I quit Provo I've had tons of free time and I've actually been able to hang out with Lucas ... I love it.

I love summertime.

some things

Here are some photos from some of the things we've been up to recently.

Strawberry Days Rodeo (I know, almost a month ago ...) with the DeHarts and Peays. Love them. And I do realize the picture of us is blurry, it probably won't be the only one on this post ...

We had an extra fun little visitor, our darling neice Halle while her family went to St Louis without her.

Oh, and I quit my job. Today is officially my last day ... it's bittersweet.

the 4th

I think I need these.

“You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.”
Erma Bombeck
