Some of you may be aware that my cat, Oliver, went missing a while back. It has been two months now, and so I have decided it is time to say goodbye. Oliver was the first pet that was truely my own. We adopted he and his sister, Twist, from my sister in law about [...]
Amy and I took the kids down to the 16th Street Mall last night to take in the sights and the chaos as people descend on our fair city for the Democratic national Convention. For those of you that can’t be here, this is for you. Oh, and I’m going to Mile High to see [...]
On our recent trip to South Dakota, there were quite a few exciting moments. Bears brushed up against our car in Bear Country USA, the police came to visit us because someone thought they saw a “domestic disturbance” in our car and a hike to split rock resulted in our being covered with ticks. Despite [...]
This morning we awoke to find a little blood on the kitchen floor. It was coming from our now 11 week old puppy, Diablo. We took her to the vet and they kept her a while for some tests. When they finally called, some x-rays showed what looked like rocks in her stomach. Uh oh. [...]

As I was heading out from my appointment to make an appointment to get a root canal, my phone rang. Amy extended a very innocent sounding invitation to come look at puppies at PetSmart with the kids, they were right around the corner. I headed over and found my kids playing with this adorable puppy. [...]
I’m a slacker blogger, but I’m OK with that. Life has been very busy lately, and next month is looking to be even busier. I managed to upgrade my WordPress install and I am so excited to play with it that now you get pictures. Lucky you! The trip was great fun. After several weeks [...]
A couple of weeks ago Mason got to go on an impromptu day trip with Grandma Susie to Disneyland. He had a great time and brought back a present for Madeleine. During discussion around the event I told my mom that I didn’t really remember my trip to Disneyland for some reason, which is strange [...]
