Phoenix Zoo

3-29-2008 - Madi, Lexi, Drew, Cass, Grandma, Grandpa, Great Grandma and I left the house at about 6:00 in the morning to head to the Phoenix Zoo. Madi was a huge help by entertaining Drew, and Lexi had to stop for a bathroom break every half hour. We made it there and had a good day. We walked around the Zoo for about three and a half hours. Everyone was pretty tired when we left. I was so tired afterward that I didn't even bother uploading the updates to the site.

Constant Change

3-19-2008 - If you haven't noticed, the site is nearly always undergoing changes. I am constantly adding, removing or moving features. Well, today is no different. I removed the tech related links on the left and replaced them with a single link to a "Tech Stuff" page. The page contains the old links, plus new ones. I also added a list of free stuff that I regularly use that many of you may find useful. If not, I like them and it's my page. In the near future, I am going to try to make photo galleries of our entire collection of digital pictures. I will sort them chronologically, but you're crazy if you think I'm going to add labels to them all.

3-16-2008 - SNOW IN MARCH! - It has been snowing outside for about an hour. Nothing is really sticking to the ground, but it is rare for it to snow here in the desert, especially in March.

3-14-2008 - For those that knew our dog Jack, today was kind of a sad day. After having Jack for about 5 years, Jack had to be put down today. We got Jack after a tornado went through Carl Junction, Missouri in 2003. Someone found Jack but were unable to locate his previous owners. So, Cass volunteered to adopt Jack. Jack has recently been growing less tolerant of the kids. Lexi is fine, but Jack bit her today. He scratched her nose but nothing deep. We've made sure to keep her around Levi and Scruffy to hopefully make sure that she doesn't become terrified of all dogs. We've been considering finding a new home for Jack. After this incident, however, we could not in good conscience give Jack to someone else where he might bite someone else. So, here's to the only dog that I have ever seen play fetch with himself, Jack.

Drew's Appetite

3-13-2008 - After about one month of eating baby food, Drew has graduated to the next level of baby food. Tonight, he finished a whole jar of "Step 2" baby food. It seems to be about the same consistency, but the container is bigger.

Lexi and Dance Class

3-10-2008 - I had planned to post a video of Lexi this evening. Cass was going to take the camera to the girls' dance class today, but she forgot the camera when she left the house today. So, poor, little Lexi will have to wait to have her own video posted.
