Where The Wild Things Are....

Nathan and Sharma getting a drink from the hose with Sandi's help. It was such a warm day, Nathan needed to get outside and cool down. He was mostly chasing Sandi around and getting her skirt all wet, and himself too.
Running and feeling the joy.
Here is Nathan chasing Sandi around with the hose.
We read "Where the Wild things are" before going outside to play. Nathan loves this book and wanted to sit down and check it out.

Grandma enjoys taking photos of Grandson, Nathan

What a sweet photo of Nathan. It was so HOT today, we had planned to go to the beach, but it was just too HOT, to get in the car and go.
I think I just told Nathan a funny joke.

Nathan loves his buddy Zorro. He is always happy to see him when he comes over. He loves to get Zorro's toys out for him to play with. He loves giving him his dog cookies too. Nathan, Sharma and Zorro all get along really well.

Surprise Visitors!

Mom and Dad came by today, it was a surprise visit. Ryan I were just getting ready to take the TL in for some repairs. Then this cute couple showed up on our door step. Had to snap a photo, even Zorro made the shot.
Ryan and Grandpa played a little golf in the back yard for a few minutes. Showed each other their skills. Dad said it has only taken his whole life to figure out the good golf swing.
Still learning.

Up Up and Away

Lots of joy watching the kite flying.

Kite Flying Day Continued

Ryan and Nathan at the end of the "Spiderman Kite Flying"
Nathan by this time of the day had already played in the hose with Ryan. It was hot again today. We spent the day at the open air market in Redondo Beach. Played in the Ocean, got vegetables, flowers, lunch, popcorn and played at the park. We were both tired after the kite flying. Nathan had a wonderful nap today, and so did Grandma Shelly.

Nathan kept chasing this long blue tail. He broke it off a couple of times. He told Ryan he was sorry. It was pretty cute. Here they are fixing the tail of the kite. It really flew up there high.

Nathan's Back at Grandma's Home

I was all excited to have Nathan back after having the summer off. I was supposed to watch him on Thursday, but Kevin was sick and so Kevin just stayed home and watched him and worked from home. So I just had Nathan on Friday this week. Grandma Shelly has Nathan on Tuesday's and Thursday's and Grandma Karrie has Nathan on Monday, Wednesday's and Friday's. It is amazing how much he has changed in the past 3 months. We went out front to play a little basketball. We had just put in a new basketball net and I wanted to show Nathan. I shot a few baskets, after making the shot Nathan said "Yeah Grandma Shelly" and clapped and raised up his hands. It was soooo cute. I've never had any one cheer for me like that. As I shot a few more and made them, Nathan did the same thing. It was pretty loud and I thought the neighbors were going to come out and see what was going on. It is pretty special to have some one cheer you on like that.
We made the World's Best Cookie recipe. They have coconut, oatmeal and pecans in them. Yum! I made 60 plus cookies. They are all gone today. I gave 3 plates away. The family ate the rest.
Nathan eating Breakfast friday morning. Two scrambled eggs. Love you Nathan.

This is the Green!

This is for Rachel and Kelly who didn't get to see the end result. It's not the big blue house any more. I really love it. Hope you do too.

Which color did we choose?

There are 3 shades of green. I picked one of them. The family all wanted to stick with blue. It's hard to change sometimes. The house is pretty much all done. The front door is still in the works, needs to be measured and ordered. It will be a shiny black. Tomorrow I will take a photo of the house all painted except the front door. Hope you like it Kelly. We are all pretty happy with the way it turned out. Change is good!

Baptism of Tommy Oslund August 29, 2009

What a wonderful day it was to see Tommy Oslund Baptized last Saturday. His older brother Marc is just out serving a mission for about 3 weeks and his 14 year old brother is baptized. Marc is a convert of the church of just 2 years. We were thrilled to share this event with his wonderful family. (pictured above)
Tommy and Scott sharing a laugh.

Murphy Su'a Baptized Tommy and confirmed him the next day.
Right before he got Baptized. He looks so happy.

More at 7 Caves-La Jolla Shores Beach Day

Here are a few more photos of us Kayaking last month in La Jolla. It was a great day.
Here we all are ready to go!
The water was so clear and the weather was perfect. You can see the caves in the back round. We actually got to go into a few of them. Very cool.
Love this picture with their paddles on the beach. We were getting special training how to use the paddles.
