Grandma and Grandpa Here

My parents came up to visit for a week to get away for their anniversary and see the grandkids. Cooper has been loving having them here, but especially Rusty to chase around.
And they brought Kiefer two big dinosaur floor puzzles, one that is a T-Rex almost as tall as Kiefer!

Well, Cooper finally got his first haircut. We were holding out because he has such cute straight baby hair but we were finally realizing we were "those parents" with the shaggy haired kid so we decided to clean him up.

He did ok but moved his head quite a bit which made it hard to cut, and we tried a couple different techniques so he wouldn't have the straight line bowl but it pretty much ended up looking like that. He kind of looks like a different kid now, weird.


Training Camp

Kiefer and I went down to NAU today to watch the Cardinals practice during training camp.
There was quite a crowd and it was fun to see Leinart throw a few passes like the picture below.
As we were leaving, we ended up walking right past a few of the players that stopped and got a few pictures like Boldin...
But Kiefer had his eyes on other things, there was an AMBULANCE right there waiting in case someone got hurt.
Right now ambulances are Kiefer's favorite, especially because the ambulance "Ratchet" is his favorite Transformer and so Kiefer even goes by the nickname "Kieferatchet". That's the one toy he takes everywhere and when we tuck him in at night, that's the toy he's holding. Kiefer was so excited that they let him see the back and get inside and here is Kiefer with his new friends Pete and Stephanie.

Why Are We Beating Up Dora?

We went to Zoe's birthday and she had a Dora piƱata but Kiefer was a little uncomfortable beating a girl with a bat so he mainly watched.

The horrifying results, I guess little girls named Dora are filled with candy!

Kiefer got a cool Flagstaff Firefighter temporary tattoo from the fourth of July parade. Right here he's showing off his guns and asked us to take a picture to show Uncle Jon because that's his hero and he wants a tattoo just like him :)

Code Monkeys

After a week with the Sees, Aaron came up from Mesa and Brett flew in from Santa Barbara for a coding push on our software Showit Sites. It was a productive week of very late nights and of course Sushi :) A couple of the days got warm in my office and the AC wasn't keeping up, so we went outside where it was nice and Elisa snapped this fun picture. It's cool to see three developers in a row with Mac laptops, the ironic part being that two of the three are running Windows as the OS!

The Sees

The Sees came to visit right after we got back from San Diego and were with us for a week. Nate and I worked a bit but it was great for Elisa and Erin to get to be together and it meant that the kids kept each other occupied playing together.


We had fun going to the 4th of July parade and for some reason Kiefer didn't like keeping his pants on in the backyard?! ...

One day we decided to snap a ton of pictures and I decided to pick one of each kid to post.

Kiefer got his staples out today and did great, so we got him his own
doctor kit and now he is practicing taking staples out of our heads.

Watson Family

My mom sent over our family picture from the week in San Diego and so I thought I would post that too. I think it's awesome because my dad is a pastor and so spiritual and you can tell from this picture because of his awesome halo :)

The Sees are here this week and it's been great, my pictures are on the other camera so I'll post more later...
