What are the odds

Last night we had a tri-ward pool party at the Rio Grande H.S. Pool. I drove the van so that I could take the boys and pick up another member of our ward, Hailey. Stan drove the car so that he could stop by the church to pick up some cups and the store to pick up some ice.... Anyways, we actually arrived at the H.S. at the same time- which is kind of crazy cool timing. Stan pulled around to the back so he could unload coolers and cups etc. I pulled into the main parking lot with all the other cars and before we were all unloaded, Stan came back to the main parking lot and parked the car not too far from us in order to help us in with the load: chairs, 2 side dishes, towels, and kids. I had my hands full as I was carrying Isaac. Right before we left the van I grabbed a diaper from my diaper bag/backpack from the front of the van and then left the bag there with my wallet in it... even though I thought to myself I should probably take it in... dang it.... so you know where this is going. We came out around 8:30 to head home. Sister Graham was asking me if it was my van that was parked next to hers-- which it was... and then she told me that the driver's window was smashed in and somebody broke into it.. .... and then she asked me if I knew who the green car belonged to-- -Us Again-- those were the only two vehicles broken into--- We still can't believe our dumb luck. Punks. It's frustrating when I don't listen to that still small voice. They got my driver's license, ss card, lots of plastic and probably 2 cents--I hardly ever carry cash. They got both of our cell phones and Stan's work briefcase and Ipod. I can't help but picture in my mind my Grandpa Ward or Uncle George saying "Damn the Dirty Luck" or one of the boys immitating how he would say it. I know better than to leave my wallet in the car. Hard Lessons. Arghhhh. At least we are all safe and sound---Just in case you are curious-- which I would be... They made two charges on my debit card at gas stations by 7:30pm and the 3rd one declined-- They attempted using another credit card at a different gas station which thankfully declined-- great work anti-fraud departments.
Laughter, the best medicine

You can tell that Eli is so happy to cooperate.. Suddenly, I remember why we haven't done this in a really long time.

picture from 7/9/08 7months old! Isaac is scooting all over the place. He is such a little busy body. Just a couple of weeks ago, I went to get him out of the crib and he was almost out of it by himself-- he had pulled himself up and was leaning on the top bar w/his forearms since the mattress was in the middle and the bar wasn't all the way to the top.. We have lowered the mattress to the bottom--in case you are wondering. :)

Memories of You and I
Here are the directions:

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you know me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.For those of you that look at my blog. You can sign in on blogger for free, so you can comment. You don't have to have a blog page. And your memory can be of any of my family.

This weekend flew right by... We didn't get any snaps of the bride and groom-- oops--or of any of Vegas's 4th of July celebrations or any pics when we were actually dressed up... We left ABQ at 3:30am on 7/4/08- so there you go... but we had so much fun at Sione & Kim's wedding reception even though it was 118 degrees lol. Great Food, Company, and Dancing-plus I didn't get sick from eating anything at Circus Circus or anywhere else--which is always a plus when we're on the road. Eli loves his G&G Makaafi and Auntie Losili. Thanks for everything... It was so nice to hang out and eat watermelon together* Love you guys*
