I'm Coming Hayley

Right now my life seems terribly boring and I don't have much to talk about that you would find interesting. The most exciting thing that has happened is that Brandon went to Utah for some law convention (or something like that) so we invited Serene and the girls to come down for the weekend. At the moment I'm babysitting Hayley and Sydney while Lisa and Serene went out to run some errands. Sydney is down for her nap and Hayley is really wishing I would pay more attention to her. This morning we all went up to the park and Sydney must have spent an hour on the swings the entire time yelling "Higher Grandpa, Higher". Of course I felt compelled to oblige but Serene made me stop when Sydney was going so high that the chains began to go slack.

I'm still going through withdrawals from my scout calling. It was mixed feelings Tuesday night when I would normally go to my Scout meeting but I got to stay home instead. Right now my boys are on a scout camp at Big Bear that I'm missing as well. Oh well, if I was camping I would be missing out on visiting with Hayley.

This week at work we had visitors all week long. There are still many challenges but we're making good progress and exciting things are happening. I'll update you on all of that when I can.

Living at a high altitude increases your metabolism so people living at high altitudes are generally thinner than people living at low altitudes.

I'm surprised Sydney was sitting on a big girl swing! Cute pictures. Love the one with Sydney on your shoulders poking your eye out...you didn't need that one anyway right?!

Its because I forced her to swing when she was 12 months old to get over her fear. I also do scary things to her when she is on my shoulders which might explain why she is clinging so tightly to my dad's face.
