Intramural Champion

The coveted intramural champion t-shirt. I got one last week as our ultimate frisbee team won the championship game on Wednesday night, 9-8. We beat the same team the night before, 11-10. It was a double elimination tournament so that is why we had to play them twice. We came back on Tuesday down 8-10 and then again on Wednesday night 7-8. It was awesome.

Goof offs
After three years of playing on a team together, we not only won our first playoff game, but went all the way

This was taken after the first playoff game

I hesistate to put these below pictures up but I figure why not. It still hurts to think about it but there's nothing that can be done now. I went to the BYU v Utah football game on Saturday.

A Little Place Called Aspen

Jackie and I decided to follow my brother and his family to "someplace warm...where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano." I'm talking about Aspen, Colorado. We left Saturday afternoon and drove back Sunday but we felt that it was worth the 11 hours of driving in two days and here are 3 reasons why:

1. Lily is growing up so she is sleeping less and smiling more. She is just so adorable. She spent most of the time trying to find stuff to put in her mouth, especially my camera and my nose.

2. Jack continues to smile and is growing into his wrestling phase, which is always fun for me until they are old enough to learn valuable wrestling techniques against males, like some of my Anderson cousin's kids have learned. Jack still wrestles clean so no complaints from me.

3. The gas station in Grand Junction that we found. $2.19! Awesome! The gas station on the other side was $2.39 so I'm glad we accidently turned right to get to the Wendy's, otherwise we never would have seen this place. Jackie and I stopped there on the way back to fill up as well. The highest we paid this summer was near $5.00 a gallon somewhere on the California coast.

I was quickly banned from playing on the playground because Jack would want to do what I was doing and he did not want to leave, unlike his parents
"Let me put that camera in my mouth"

Jack is getting used to having a "Jackie" aroundI got my "church shoes" out but did not put them in the car. I don't think anyone in the Aspen branch minded.

Samurai Babe

Jackie's "Thriller" costume didn't make it in time so I hooked her up with my Samurai outfit, which consists of a leisure, tea-drinking Japanese outfit, a 2003 Hanshu Tigers Japanese World Series champion headband, and my samurai sword replica.
