The Most Intense Game!

So a couple of days ago, we hung out with the Howards. (Austin's friends from Tennessee) We had such a wonderful time seeing their little girl Hazel and their newest member Rhys. It was very enjoyable and easy going all throughout the night until the last 30 minutes. Because during those last 30 minutes we busted out the heart throbbing game of jumbling towers! It's the game where you stack three block on top of each other to make a tower and then you roll the dice to see which color of block your suppose to pull out without the tower falling over. Then you stack the piece you pulled out on the top to increase the length of the tower.
So we started pretty slow because Austin kept knocking the tower over on his second try, but after his third attempt of this second try he finally managed to keep the tower up right. After that we all cruised through the tower but after about 10 minutes the colors were slim and the tower was even slimmer, balancing itself on only one block in several different places. It was extremely intense and everyone had sweaty palms. The hardest part of the game was having to take the block of the color you rolled. Sometimes there were only one or two options to choose from. So after about 30 minutes we finally took a picture of our tower because we were so impressed. It was a little over 16 inches!! We were so proud. After awhile we just stood with the camera ready for whoevers turn it was because the tower was so wobbly. At last Lance, was the one it decided to fall on. He hadn't even tried to take one out, he was testing for loose ones and it just tumbles over! I'm glad I wasn't the one it fell on! Thanks Lance!

Uncle Jon's Championship Game!

I know it is a little late but I just wanted to congratulate my brother Jon and his intramural basketball team! They took 1st place last week in an intense game that was really enjoyable to watch. Let's just say he is pretty much filthy! I am so proud of you Jon, and I am glad you were able to get a t-shirt before you graduated!!!

Hey everyone. So Isaac has discovered that he can pull his bumbo chair tray off while I am feeding him and pull his bib off as well. If anyone has advice or knows of a place where I can get stronger bibs I would love it. Usually it only takes about 15 minutes to feed the little man but ever since yesterday it's taken about 45 minutes because it is a war between us. Lol A fun war, but yet not that fun for me to clean up, feed him, put the tray back, and keep him distracted from his bib all at the same time. He is just getting too big!
