Echo Lake

We went down to Echo Lake with Marty's family all last week. We all had a great time. We spent lots of time hanging out in the sun, boating, eating, playing games, and just relaxing. The boys were sad to come home.

Davis Knee-Boarding

Davis has not had much experience around boats (Last year it took a whole lot of convicing just to get him to ride the tube). So we were pretty surprised when he said he wanted to try knee-boarding. For his first time he did pretty well.

Davis soccer

This is Davis's second time around for soccer and he has really enjoyed it. This year they got to play half the year indoor and half outdoor. He especially liked it becuase he and his cousin Jack played on the same team.

He is quite a good little soccer player. Although he ocassionally gets a little distracted (His Dad is a little competitive and sometimes get on his case a little more than he should).

These are some pictures of his last game. He was actually quite aggressive and played his best game of the year (He scored 3 goals!). I almost shed a tear.

Family fun

Davis has been taking some testosterone injections. It has had some unfortunate side effects.

Davis had a Hawaiian day at pre-school. Of course Marcus had to get dressed up as well.
We went to a town celebration out in Aetna with Delton & Brenda. Davis & Marcus thought it was pretty cool to ride on a horse.

Catch up post

My last post was Christmas - I'm a pretty pathetic blogger. Much has happened since then. I'll see what I can remember:

1. Phoenix is now 5 months. He is a wonderful little boy. He smiles tons and is a great sleeper.
2. We moved. As many of you know my grandpa passed away a little while back. I have been helping with some renovations on his house with the intent of trying to rent out his house. But we kind of spur of the moment decided to move in ourselves. We are loving the room, but not loving the endless amount of upkeep and yard work quite so much.
3. Davis turned 5 years old. It's crazy how fast they grow up.
4. I am officially a poor student again. I have left mortgage brokering completely so I can concentrate on getting my MBA.
5. And a bunch of other junk I can't remember....Here's some pictures:

I may be a little biased, but we have three of the best looking boys on the planet. I absolutely hate cats. But since we now basically live on a farm we decided we would get a couple of cats to try and keep the mice out of the house. Davis and Marcus really enjoy them (Although Marcus is a little rough with them - He often tries to pick them up by the tail).
Phoenix's first time in the jolly jumper.Davis calls himself the tattooed man. When I was putting these on him he kept saying "I'm really awesome."
All the boys just chilling on the couch.
Marcus being a pleasant boy (Which does nor happen quite as often as we would like).
Davis trying out his new Star Wars bike.
Marcus & I trying out Davis's birthday present.
A brothers love.
As you can probably guess not my idea. But in our family we are comfortable enough with our sexuality to dress up like a girl.

Phoenix has now figured out how to roll over. Unfortunately he gets quite distressed when he realizes he can't roll back.

Davis's 5th birthday. *If you're wondering who that person singing directly into the microphone of the camera that has the voice of an angel...It's me!

Davis's impromptu Christmas song

Traditionally on Christmas Eve we have a little family talent show. But for the past few years all the kids have gotten too old and are not really into it. This year Geoff & Nicki's daughter Kaiya sang a song, and so Davis figured he should as well. The problem was he did not have anything prepared, so he decided to just make up a Christmas song on the spot.

Christmas 2008

We had a great Christmas. Lots of family, food, fun, and presents. Davis and Marcus had a great time playing with their cousins and eating way too many treats.
