Five for Friday

  • Is THIS disturbing to anyone else? I was a HUGE NKOTB fan back in the day. I had pj's, t-shirts, walls plastered with posters, loved their music, went to their concert and - get this - slept on New Kids sheets. But even with all of my love for Donny, Danny, Jonathan, Jordan, and - my personal favorite - Joey - I'm just a little creeped out by a band called "New KIDS" - who are in their 30, who have kids of their own, and who dance around kind of awkwardly as if they're still teenagers....

  • Cory fulfilled a dream today - he flew an airplane! In his words, "It was the coolest thing I have EVER done!" He has a client who has a house boat in Lake Powell. Cory had been doing some work on the boat yesterday, and got stuck there (LONG story) overnight. Today when it was *finally* time to come back they sent a pilot to pick Cory up (he's flown there both times he's gone to do work there). On the way back he asked Cory if he wanted to take off, and if he wanted to fly the plane. Cory said he basically flew home. I have a feeling he might have been bit by the flying bug :).
  • My baby - doesn't look like a baby anymore! We got his hair cut today and not only did he do GREAT (Gabe has NEVER been so well behaved for a haircut) - but he even looks like a little BOY.

  • Cory & Gabe are camping with the ward tonight at the Father's-and-Son's campout. Cory was excited to take Gabe, and Gabe was pretty psyched to go camping with dad. It was funny because as we were talking about going camping I said, "Do you remember when you went camping last year with Daddy?" He said, "Yeah, we had marshmallows and cooked them on sticks! He wasn't even 2 when they went camping - but even as a little guy he had memories of marshmallows :)
  • Poor Utah Jazz. I was so sad to watch the game tonight and I was bummed that this is the end of the road for them this season. The end of the game was pretty exciting though...

yeah. It was sad to see the Jazz, huh?
It's my dream (and probably Jerry Sloan's too) for the Jazz to win one national championship some day. Oh well - better luck next year.

By the way, check out all this cool stuff :)

Oh your kids are cute! If you ever find time, I would love to see a side by side photo comparison of your two boys at the same age. Sometimes I think Hunter looks so much like Gabe and other times you can just tell they are brothers, but that's it. Hope you guys aren't roasting down there!
Love you!

So sad the Jazz are done. I can't believe they came back to within 3...

K, the guy in the middle of the NKOTB looks kind of Donny Osmond-ish. Do you see it, or is it just me?

I was hoping you would see the NKOTB comeback. That brings back such funny memories of our obsession with them back in the day!
