Zach LOVED being in the pool - we was squealing, going underwater, doing everything you could think of.....all for about 5 minutes when he decided it was time to go #2. Yes, #2 in the pool. No big deal, he has on a swim diaper and his swim trucks are also swim diapers...the problem lies with what happened AFTER Zach completed all his grunting. Dinner decided to make its way up and go ALL OVER DUSTIN. Now Dustin is not a throw up man. If he even SEES throw up it makes him start to throw up himself. So imagine Dustin (covered in throw up) holding Zach trying to make it to the pool stairs to get out all while he is trying to keep down his own dinner. The best part -- the other people at the pool actually left after witnessing this event.
Dustin vows to never go back to the pool the rest of the summer -- somehow I don't think that will last.

Not exactly sure how he managed to do that with his shirt....but we are all grateful for a mother's intuition.

Day #1 included Kayaking down the Colorado River - guided of course. The water was freezing cold - snow melt off. They enjoyed this activity - so much they returned with sun burnt feet - yes, only the feet got sun burnt.
Evening entertainment was the fire at their campsite. What more would you expect from three grown men than a big fire, men jumping over the fire...and apparently a dance party.
Day #2 included off roading in the 4runner. They met up with the same crew they went with last Fall - and I have been told the 4runner kicked a$$ this time. It better after Dustin pimped it out after his last Moab trip - and yes, the running boards were taken off.
Day#3 the guys did some morning hiking, then realized how much they missed their hot wives and decided to hit the road a bit earlier than planned. I am sure that three days of no showering didn't sway their decision one bit.
Thanks Dave, Cliff and Steve - I can tell you guys had a blast (and I am still laughing over the dance party pictures)...and I am sure another trip in the Fall is already in the works.

First stop - the gas station by our house for some road trip snacks. 6:30am and Dustin goes for the 3 foot long beef jerky and a mountain dew.
We made it to Las Vegas all safe and sound and were able to check into our hotel a few hours early. We had a nice strip view - and the rooms looked super sweet.

Well it turns out the "dirty" part is actually INSIDE the two panes of glass. HUH? Yeah - the window wasn't sealed properly when it was originally manufactured. So we contacted our original builder to find out who they bought the windows from thinking they must be under some type of warranty. We were RIGHT! The windows were under the original manufacturers warranty...but they went out of business. That is right folks - Linford windows is out of business. So we had to suck it up and pay a different company $250 to replace the outside pane of glass - that was even with a 30% discount (so they say). Why replace it you ask? Well - if we ever sold this house who would buy it with mold growing in between window panes?

Notice anything "strange" about this picture? How about the fact that there is no sauce on the top of the ravioli's. Yes - while we took our walk our cat decided to help clean up. The even better part....she was throwing up all night.

Zach has been helping Dad work on a project this morning in the basement while Mom is getting her hair done..
- We aded a new outlet, since the storage room didn't have one.. (Ok, I didn't let Zach help me much on this one)
- To eliminate drafts the basement (and to keep Zach from touching the insulation), We put a layer of plastic over the exposed insulation on the interior wall of the storage room (I think I even managed to keep him from eating any of the insulation in the process! Yeah!)
- Hung Brackets for new shelving (just need the wood now... Roadtrip for the boys this afternoon)
I was just finishing up the final touches on the project when I noticed I missed a thin strip of insulation behind the door where it opens towards.. I put all of my tools out of Zach's reach.. Noticed that Zach was preocupied looking up at the light in the storage room, so I decided I should be ok putting up a little more plastic to cover the insulation..
It couldn't have been more than a minute or 2 for me to hang the plastic, when all of the sudden the lights went out!
This is what Zach accomplished in less than 2 minutes...
