May '11

It seems like a lot has happened since January but at the same time not much has. Both are good.

Ellie Jo started nursery at church this month and started crying, not when we dropped her off like most kids, but when we came and took out to go home. She's a little social butterfly, that one.

Sarah is still workin' hard at Lins catchin' criminals left and right. Sarah works Loss Prevention/Security for Associated Foods which incorporates Dan's, Dick's, Lin's, and Macey's. Out of the whole company Sarah is usaully in the top 3 for how many people she catches shoplifting and she's stationed in one the smaller towns in one of the smallest stores. To sum it up let's just say thats she's dang good at what she does.

Joe is workin' part time for Lin's as a bagger while his main job is apartment managing. Neither are the most glamorous. But he has been getting a lot of photography jobs on the side doing weddings, engagements, headshots, and baby shots. So thats been fun.

So, for the most part, we're all stayin' pretty busy. Hope you enjoy some of the more recent shots of Ellie Jo.

Joe's Birthday

Well as some of you may or may not know it was Joe's birthday on Saturday, unless your my family then it was his birthday on Friday (at least you were close ;)) Joe's Dad and his wife Julie came down for a day full of adventure. We headed out to Zion (there is no s on the end of Zion I don't know if everyone is aware of this but if you know a park ranger you probably are very aware of this) around 8 a.m. the weather had been nice all week so we figured light jackets would suffice. We got there around 9:30 and it was freezing. We found some sun and hung out in it for about an hour to allow it reach to the other corners of the park. Around 11 it turned absolutely beautiful we hiked around we took pictures, had a little lunch and had a wonderful time. Ellie absolutely loved it! That girl was meant to be outdoors. She was hiking around like a champ and just was having a great time taking it all in. We stayed in the park til about 3 and then decided to head home. Joe's dad left and his mom and grandma came around six and took us out to dinner. It was such a great meal and such a great time. I don't know about Joe but I certainly had a blast on his birthday.

Ellie Jo's First Family Reunion

This was Ellie Jo's first camp out and family reunion. Sarah and I both thought that it was going to be a bit rough as far as sleeping went. We figure that Ellie Jo was going to be up all night. She actually slept better than she does at home which was kind of a relief Minus the fact that she doesn't sleep that good at home. But it was nice that she slept.
The unfortunate part about the weekend was that it rained for most of the time. It was ridiculous! But we had fun none the less. We got to get in some golfing and a scavenger hunt. It was awesome! We got to sit around and eat and talk and such. It was a lot of fun.

My Thoughts on Web 2.0

This is an assignment for my CSIS Class. The assignment is to talk about my opinion about Web 2.0 and how it has effected society. I think it has affected us all in good ways and bad ways. The good ways are that we are progressing technologically. Facebook is an example of being able to talk to people thta you haven't seen for a long time and wish to catch up with and many various tasks. Unfortunately it has separated us from much personal interaction. That's how I feel about it.


The two most beautiful women ever.
