Goodbye Piano

I tried to take off all the white and green paint and make you beautiful again.
But now, I'm just glad someone else took you home. To Cheong: Enjoy!

A gchat convo with 2 of my brothers earlier today:

Kent: Pittsburgh is Zion
995 days in Durham
ericfreeze: I would miss the Pitt
me: me too
Kent: 961 days in Utah
me: wow Kent
so specific
ericfreeze: these things are important
Kent: then 658 days in Melbourne
9:13 PM The 197 days in Ottawa
ericfreeze: how many at BYU
Kent: Then 102 in DC
me: how many days old are you?
Kent: Then 55 in Alberta
152 days in China
9:14 PM ericfreeze: hmmm
Kent: but I have it broken up by province
I am exactly 10000 days old
that's kind of creepy
9:15 PM Kent: holy snap
me: and you didn't know that?
Kent: I just calculated it
me: this is really weird
Kent: go on excel
ericfreeze: that is weird
Kent: type dates in the format 4/15/1982
you can subtract dates
me: I'm freaking out
Kent: and it will tell how many days have gone bye
ericfreeze: hmmm
me: this must be a sign of something to come
ericfreeze: the end is near...
9:16 PM Kent: wow
ericfreeze: that would mean you don't have to finish your prospectus
Kent: such significance
ericfreeze: type in how old I am
may 18 1974
Kent: 12889
ericfreeze: hm
9:17 PM me: you should have a birthday cake or something
this is huge...10000
Kent: I can't believe I am exactly 10,000 days old
ericfreeze: that is quite the milestone
Kent: this is like a Christmas miracle

Happy 10,000 day to you Kent!

Just One of the Reasons

I'm going to miss Pittsburgh when we move in 3 weeks.

The Natural History and Art Museum is killer. My personal favorite is the stuffed camel scene. I'll try and get a shot of that next time we go.

Totally unrelated, but...guess who can now jump getting both feet off the ground simultaneously???

Here's a hint...he's camera shy.

Klavons Trip

We finally made it to Klavons a few weeks ago. What's better than a chocolate sprinkle covered ice cream cone? A chocolate sprinkle covered ice cream cone with a sparkle stabbed inside.

I think the ladies were more excited about the sparkle.
Bran and I had Sundaes that blew us out of this world. Obviously.
For my Ellingson relatives....see the WIDE assortment of metal cups??? There was even a metal pitcher. Looks like the coveted float cups from my youth were actual float cups. I almost asked to buy them.
Reader beware: The Klavons site will play music. Just now when I found the link to add here, Bryn screams out...THE ICE CREAM PLACE! So...beware.

Lesson Learned

Lesson 1: A popsicle will not distract your 1 year old son from getting his hair cut.
Lesson 2: Popsicles attract hair. Seriously...avoid popsicles when cutting hair. It's just not a good idea. Next time, I'll use TV.
After. The girls styled his hair.

Fishing Cup

A couple weeks ago we went to a fishing cup thing in town.
We didn't take many pictures, but I felt like we were somehow transported down to the south.
It was great and the first time when it seemed like I (and my family) were the only ones that weren't from the south.

This guy won $50K for winning his fishing contest.This guy with the red sleeves won $1000000 for winning the Fantasy Fishing League. Crazy...there were even fireworks inside Mellon was beyond crazy. Who knew fishing could be so much fun?
