Night Games

Last Friday night, nephew Ethan planned night games which meant everyone lined up for the zipline for as long as the sun held out. Our big achievement was getting Mimi to ride. She screams from beginning to end. It was the best part of the night.

Dad's Day

Here is Cory lounging in the hammock we gave him for Father's Day. We felt like he needed a place to rest since he works so hard for us and is such an amazing husband and father. Unfortunately for him, the rest of us have decided that the hammock is really cool and have already taken it over. Thus goes the life of a father.

Happy Birthday Cory

The past month has flown by.  Life has been full of events, like dining in San Francisco, checking off another remodeling project, dinners (and much laughing) with friends.  But I am getting ahead of myself.  First things first . . . 

Cory's 38th birthday!

Cory spent the morning of his birthday golfing with friends.  Later, he and Ella and I went to Angels and Demons (which he had boycotted and later recanted).  Then the family dined at our favorite birthday establishment: Bonsai.

Cory got some sound blocking headphones from his parents which Grant promptly stole to block out mom's nagging.

Ella wrapped herself up and sat patiently on the fireplace where all good presents go to be unwrapped.

We gave him some North Face shoes and a camera that attaches to a bike or a helmet so he can film all his cool wakeboarding/biking/snowboarding stunts. 

I made Magelby's chocolate cake which I have to say was better the second day after some refrigeration.  I should know . . . I ate it for breakfast every morning until it was gone.
