Since MaRea refuses to post pictures of Avery's first birthday I will embarrass/annoy her by putting this up.  This is to remind the women out there that your husband/boyfriend could be a lot worse!  Let's give thanks the 80's are over!

Kramer could forsee the future!

Yesterday on my drive home from work I was listening for KVNU's "For the People." The two morons on there were talking about health care and one guy said (paraphrasing) we shouldn't be making a profit on health care, or a large profit anyway. I'm pretty limited in my knowledge of this kind of stuff, but by the gift of common sense, I know that to remove profit from health care would absolutely destroy what makes our system great. Thanks to Mark (MaRea's brother) for posting this video, it will not only scare you on where we are heading, but it will also prove that Kramer was right!

Sea World

The boys leaving Sea World

Shamu, Kade was calling him" Sampoo" Max would tell him" his name is not Shampoo, his name is Shamu!"

Before the Shamu show Believe.
Max and Kade
Kade and Max going through the shark tunnel. They could not believe that there were sharks swimming above them.

I think Avery was done at this point, she had seen enough of Shamu. She was such a good baby. She has been sick the past week. I have hauled her everywhere with few to no naps. And most the time she remains happy and content.

Cute little Logan playing with the starfish. He is such a happy fun little man.

We Have been in Palm Springs all last week. The heat was never ending, It was a record breaking 119 degrees. I guess global warming is real, Al Gore is so SMART? I still can't belive that idiot won The Nobel Peace Prize.

We are in San Diego for the week and the weather is so wonderful, I love it here. I think I could even live here. The kids are having so much fun. Kade takes Stew "The Dog" on several walks a day. The Beach is a 30 second walk from the house. Kade, Max, and Logan could play in the ocean all day.

"Beer Goggles"

Do all parents have, "beer goggles"? People have been saying "Avery is getting so cute!" I think to myself, getting cute...... I can't think of a time that she has not been the most ediable, delicouse little bundle of joy. I think it's an OK thing to think that your kids are the cutest things alive, and they never go through an ugly stage, right? It made me think if I was "One of those parents". I opened the "Avery photo file". OK, I discovered that I have been wearing "beer goggles". It's true, Avery had a few months that could be questionable.

Avery is getting big, so fast! I'm having huge anxiety about her growing up in lightning speed. Kyle and I just can't get enough of this sweet little piece of heaven. From the day she was born we have been fighting over who gets to hold her, put her to bed, get her up, give her a bottle, we have even argued about who got to change her diaper, weird I know, but some day she will not wear diapers. Avery is the happiest little baby, always smiling, with the most pleasant disposition. We were flying out to California last week and the lady sitting next to us could not get over what a good baby she was. They wanted to give her some special award for being the best baby ever on any flight they have been on, thats my girl! We are so greatfull for this sweet little girl in our family. This last year we have had some difficult trials, but the lord blessed us with a little piece of heaven on earth, thanks Avery for always making us smile when time seemed rough.

Things you are doing right now Avery:

- When you get out of bed you kick your legs with excitment.
- When I make a bottle and shake it, you burst with joy!

- You hate getting dressed.
- For such a long time you had just one tooth on top, you would smile, my heart would melt into a puddle on the floor!
- You love watermelon, if someone takes it you scream like a raptor going after its prey.
- Avery you are the most spoiled baby, I promise I will change,...... someday?
- You love to army crawl.
