Almost Two Months

Apparently it's been that long since I last posted something. Not that we haven't done anything worth posting. It's quite the contrary- I haven't had much time (okay, I haven't really made the time) to just sit and work on a post. My apologies. Hopefully people will still check our blog... eventually.
Back in May we had plans to go camping- we even had our campsite reserved. Unfortunately the weather didn't really want to cooperate, and it was supposed to rain the ENTIRE time. Not my idea of a lovely camping trip. So through much coaxing and some tears I finally convinced Kent to drive down to Clovis to visit his family. We spent a day at the zoo checking out the wildlife. No, this isn't real. And if you look very closely you can see a string of drool hanging out of Erik's mouth.

I love this picture.

This was probably taken by Kent before our riff-raff children ran up and started whoopin' and hollerin' at the poor dear.

They had this cute little area where kids could dig for fossils. Cute, really.

Doesn't the goat look totally excited to befriend our children?

And then the goat saw this:

And now it doesn't look quite as happy about Erik wanting to be friends.

And how convenient!! Disneyland is only a THREE hour drive from Kent's parents' house!! And wouldn't it just be so lovely if Kent and I went? But the kids would probably rather stay with Grandma and Grandad, right? I mean, they just went in March. Don't want them to get tired of Disneyland or anything.

Our new line of action figures.

Except I'm supposed to be running- not punching myself in the face.
We actually took a picture almost exactly like this one (same ride and everything!) when we were first dating. If I wasn't so lazy I'd go find it...

Kent was very proud of himself for maxing out his score.

No, really! Here's proof:
I'm not quite sure what I'm doing here.
And thanks to the lovely Leifson family for helping me badger Kent into making the drive. We met up with them and we had a great time!

And a BIG thanks to Kent's parents for taking our kids for those few days that we were in the Happiest Place on Earth. With no kids. And I swear, Melanie doesn't always wake up in the middle of the night and cry and cry...
Once again I realized, after going through all of the pictures, that there are absolutely none of Melanie. We really do love her. I promise. So here's one of her just so we don't feel too bad:

Yes, she loves Oreos. Until Kent told me that she probably doesn't need them that early.

I seem to remember a very similar picture of you from Space Mountain back in high school.

Also-- those two pictures are creepy.
