Audrey’s Trip to England!!

Well, Audrey’s off to England!! Audrey had the chance to go and visit Marsha and Jason over in England, so we took her to the airport today to fly over there. Here’s a picture of the plane she was on – it’s huge!! We almost didn’t make it because of a mix up at the passport office, but her passport got delivered early this morning. I’m posting this less than a week after she left and I miss her so much!! She can be contacted by her e-mail address and I’m sure she would like to hear from everyone. Her address is ADodgeRose@aol.com.

Jeff Graduates!!!

Yeah, I know – you’re reading the title of this over and over and thinking to yourself…….I can’t be reading that right. But it’s true!! On June 12, 2008, Jeff walked on stage and accepted his diploma from Legacy High School. I know it seems unlikely, but he made it!! All joking aside – we’re very proud of Jeff and were very happy to see him get his diploma. For a graduation present, he got his own Apple MacBook – so being looking for his website soon!! Check out the photo albums to see part of the slide show we put together for Jeff’s graduation party.

What is going on?

Well, I thought I would be posting to this thing a lot, but I guess I’m just too much out of the habit!! It’s been 2 months since my last post!! I’ve had several things I have wanted to post, but then I guess I just get lazy and don’t do it. So – I am going to try to catch things up a little bit. I am going to go through and post pictures of things that have happened in the last couple of months, and also put in some additional blog entries. Check back in the next couple of days for more pics and entries!!

Mario Kart Wii!!!!!!

This game was released today and I wanted to post this to let everyone know how awesome this game is!! It reminds me of some good times – you know the ones; Jason, Rob & I battling it out – Jeff running out of the room upset that he can’t win (not much has changed there!) I didn’t really like the Gamecube version of this game, but I really like the Wii version. Now they have it so you can play online with your friends also, so you know what that means!! Everyone has to get a Wii so that we can play online. That is, if you guys think you could handle it!!

Soccer season starts up again!!

The spring soccer season kicked off today. Both Briana and Tyler play in different age groups. Both teams are orange and go by the name The Orange Crushers. Elena coaches both teams (and a 3rd also!) and I get to help her for all 3 teams. It’s always a lot of fun – I love being out there with the kids!! They have been playing for the past 2 years and both of them seem to enjoy it a lot.

California Adventure – on a Segway!!

I was looking at Disneyland’s website this last year when I found this tour that Disney offers. It is a 3 hour tour that takes place in California Adventure before the park opens. They teach you how to ride a Segway and then take you all over the park. These things are a blast!!! I loved the tour – I want to buy a Segway to get back and forth to work!! I posted an album with some different pictures of that day. Some show the park as we are walking through it while empty, one of Billy Hill and the Hillbillies over at Disneyland (I love these guys!!), my all-time high score on Buzz Lightyear (the ride got stuck next to a triangle target and I got to rack up the points) and a couple of Kurt & Elena braving the rapids at night time. A very cool day – I highly recommend this tour!! In a few months Teresa & I will be in Florida and I hear they offer a Segway tour around Epcot – we’ll be checking into it!!

Audrey’s 17th Birthday Party

Well, look at that. 2 entries in a single day!! That’s got to be some kind of record for me!! Thought I’d let everyone know that we celebrated Audrey’s birthday today, even though we are a couple of days early. My mom was in town this weekend, so we thought we would celebrate when everyone could come over and hang out. I will post pictures to the photo albums page later this week so everyone can see what was going on.
