Time for an update!

So it's been awhile since I've posted. I really don't have a good excuse, just haven't felt like it I guess! We have had a busy month. Here's what we have been up to...

  1. I entered Lincoln in a baby contest and Diaper Derby at the Davis County Fair. Lincoln looked so cute, but for some crazy reason the judges didn't pick him! Hello, did they not SEE his head band! This is him with the judges before the contest. I thought we would try to do a little sucking up before it started, however, Lincoln was not going along with the game plan as you can see! He also raced in the Diaper Derby, which was hilarious! I had my sweet mom record it, however she pushed pause rather than record button, so we have great footage of before and after the race! Lincoln won the first round (with the help of a bag of fruit snacks), but didn't quite make it in the second round. He was just to distracted by all of the people at the fair!

2. We went to a Wells Fargo recognition carnival. Lincoln had his first try of cotton candy and snow cones, Yummy! Travis and I climbed the climbing wall. Travis didn't take a picture of me, probably because I dominated it (he gets a little jealous). I hate when that happens!

3. We went and saw Brian Regan at Thanksgiving Point. He was absolutely hilarious! Travis and I were laughing so hard I thought I was going to wet myself, really. If you haven't seen him, check him out... So funny! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxe0uO2Dpuc

4. Travis and I joined a softball team. I know, those of you who know me are probably asking yourselves right now, "but Margie, you have never done anything athletic in your life." This is still true, however, I could not resist Travis' puppy dog eyes when he asked me to be on their team. He obviously did not know what he was getting into. So, we had our first game last Tuesday, and we had been to the batting cages, and practiced throwing and catching. Travis even bought me my own mitt so that I could feel official. I was feeling pretty good about myself considering all of the practicing we had done. However, when we got to the game I realized they were not playing the same game that we had been practicing all week. No sir. This was a little more intense than I had expected, and I realized that I still did not know how to catch and throw. To make a long story short I stayed in right field and thankfully the ball did not come to me. Does anybody remember the Pizza Hut commercial about right field from the original Ninja Turtles movie? Didn't think so, OK. Well, here it is. It's pretty much me without the sweet catch at the end. http://www.imeem.com/isilweth/video/A2zkpxEE/pizza_hut_right_field_commercial_from_teenage_mutant_ninja/ We have another game tonight, so I will let you know how it goes. Please pray that the ball doesn't come to me. Thanks.
