Catching Up

Yes, we've been very lax with the blog. Wow, it's been over a month, sorry about that. We're looking for a new used car at the moment, so that's been taking up a lot of the evening computer time. We need to replace the Ford Ranger pickup, since there is no way to transport a wee one in it. We're looking for some kind of wagon with a hatchback, maybe a Volvo or Subaru. We need room for mom, dad, huevo and Lucy!

We went up to stay with my college buddy (and best man) Paul Custodio and his family in Seattle the weekend before last. We were looking forward to seeing them and relaxing in their beautiful backyard, they were looking forward to seeing Lucy. It was great to hang with them and our other college buddy TIm. The Custodios generously gifted us a ton of baby clothes. We went out for a nice dinner with the whole group: Paul, Geri, Pete, Heather, Christina and TIm.

Another thing that has kept us from blogging is our new pool. Heather's feet have been painfully swollen and it helps tremendously to spend time in the water. She found a great deal for inflatable 15' pool. We got the pool, the ladder, filter, skimmer, vacuum, everything for 150 bucks. It doesn't even make sense, how cheap it was. We set up at the beginning of August and have been enjoying it almost every day, except for the last week when the weather has been so crappy.

Can't believe it's already the end of August. September is already looking busy, Next week we'll celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary (September 2nd). The following weekend football season starts - oh, and we're having a baby shower. Our friends Ned and Megan Folkerth have been doing the planning for it. More on that later.

Around the third week in September our friends Pete and Nina will be visiting from New Orleans. And at the end of the month I'll be turning 44. I also have 3 concerts this month, The Raconteurs, Nick Cave and My Morning Jacket. Better get them in now while I can, right?
