Kids new pics

So we had our neighbor come over and take a few pictures of Kaitlyn & Cade. These were a few of my favorites.

A great Fathers Day weekend

Friday after work I drove to Idaho to pick up Cindy and the kids. Cindy had been staying with her nephews while her brother and sister-in-law went on a cruise. When I arrived Cindy and the kids were just getting back from the store. I helped Kaitlyn out of her car seat and she laid her head on my shoulder, gave me a great big hug and said, "I missed you daddy. I wuv you daddy." Talk about melting my heart.

We had fun with Cindys family on Friday night and Saturday then we drove home Saturday night. We were about 1/2 hour from home when Cindy remembered that she had left my fathers day gift hidden under the bed in Idaho. I'll have to thank her for that because I may need to refer back to it in the future when I forget to get a gift :)

On Sunday morning I was going to put Kaitlyn down for a nap. She wanted to lay on the floor to read stories. So we put a couple pillows and blankets down and she snuggled up to me while I read her stories. Somewhere early in the second story I fell asleep and Kaitlyn left the room quietly.
After a while I woke up as Kaitlyn had returned, knelt down next to me, and gave me a great big hug. She said, "I wuv you daddy. Happy Fathers Day daddy!" and then gave me an Eskimo kiss followed by butterfly kisses. It was so sweet. She probably told me happy fathers day 40 times yesterday.
Cindy did a great job too. Thanks hun for cooking lunch, letting me sleep in until 6:30, and letting me watch the end of the Lakers/Celtics game :) It really was a great day.

So I drove down to St. George this past weekend to attend the wedding of Brianna Leavitt. On my way home I got pulled over (the officer said 89 but I was only doing 83, I know still speeding so I didn't say anything :)) and given a ticket ($107 ouch). When the officer returned to my car he asked if I was aware that there was a warrant out for my arrest. I instantly thought that my identity had been stolen and that this was going to get ugly. I told him that I had no idea and he proceeded to remind me of a ticket I was issued last June for failing to use my blinker (OK I actually swerved across four lanes of traffic so that I wouldn't miss my exit but he was kind enough to write me up for failing to signal). I knew I'd paid the ticket and told him that I had a receipt. He asked if I had it on me and when I obviously did not he told me all the things he was supposed to do (take me to jail, impound my car, etc.) but said he was going to make a note that he'd talked with me and that if I was pulled over again without having taken care of it I would be booked. I spent all day looking through my electronic receipts with no luck. My electronic bank statements only went back to the end of June 2007. I thought I was going to have to pay $206.50 to clear my warrant but I finally found a paper copy of my statement and the carbon copy of my check stub.
MORAL OF THE STORY: Keep your receipts..... or don't break the law... :)
