It’s Monday and we had another wonderful weekend with the kids.  Overall it was pretty uneventful.  We had dinner with Josh, Tracy and Gavin last night.  Emily had a great time playing with Gavin and Ethan was his normal cheery self.  As Father’s Day fast approaches, I couldn’t be more thankful to the good Lord for these wonderful children.

We caught a few fun pictures of the kids this weekend. ENJOY!

Crack Up With Ethan

After a few days from home, I spent some time with Ethan on the floor. I didn’t have to say much or even entertain, he seemed to crack up all on his own. It’s one of this moments when I want to take a mental snap shot. Instead I shut up and started taping.

I normally write about the kids but since I’m in Southern California, I figured I’d throw in some comments about my business trip.  I’m down here restoring IP connectivity to one of Air 1’s biggest stations – 90.1 KLRD.  The transmitter is located 10,000 feet above the town of Yucaipa, CA and requires a helicopter 9 months out of the year to gain access.  This time of year we’re able to access it by 4WD so no helicopter fun for me. :)

Last week the tower took a lightning strike that blew out most of the IP based hardware.  The site is solar powered and requires the Internet connection to remote control the transmitter and other hardware.  After a challenging day, we got everything working with the exception of a few devices and all is well.

I’ll be headed home later today which is good cause I REALLY miss the kids… and Jennifer of course!!!

He crawled and we are so proud!!!  He had been taking small lunges forward but this time he went for it full throttle and of course I caught it on video.  ENJOY.

Lights On, Lights Off

Emily’s latest and greatest thing is turning lights on and off.  She’s not tall enough to reach the switches so she relies on her step stool.  It’s absolutely hysterical.  This morning I took a shower with the lights going on and off the entire time.

Ethan got reunited with an old friend this week.  We went to Top’s Yogurt in Rocklin and bumped into Lien (LeAnn), the labor and delivery nurse that helped deliver Ethan.  Lien got to hold Ethan for the first time while we all had frozen yogurt.  Ethan was (of course) his normal smiley self.  He’s also moving around quite nice in a “combat crawl” type fashion.  He wants to crawl like a big boy sooooo bad!
