Okay - so to make all of you feel even weak I have to brag about my 10 year old son. Here he is doing handstand push ups off the P bars. He got 3 in before coming down. I am SUPER proud of him and his determination at CrossFit. He's been wokring out with me 2-3 days a week and he pushes himself every time. This was his first day of getting upside down and attempting the HSPU, and he did it!!! Way to go Brandon!!!
This is me and my friend Lisa P. I haven't seen or talked to her since Randy and I divorced, or actually back when Randy asked her to leave our home group. Long story but I love her, have always wanted to talk with her and tell her how I feel and I'm stoked she came back into my life. We met for coffee and to catch up last week. This weekend Brendan and I are going to her home for a BBQ and to hang out.....I can't wait :)
This is my new cousin Jackson Graham at 7 weeks (I think). Brandon is absolutely in love with him. So much so that he has been asking for a little brother. Hmmm....do I want to do that all over again ? Would I ? I love babies - but I loathe being pregnate. It would be amazing to have another child and have my kids be more a part of raising and taking care of the new one. They would be such helpers. Sarah would be a built in baby sitter - so would my son. Hmm...time is kinda running out for me. I'm fast approaching 40 and I would not want to have a baby beyond that year. Guess we have some thinking to do :) Until then - we will dote over little Jackson and Annie's baby Dylan...
My cousin Jeff, me, my bro and my son Brandon a couple weekends ago. We went to the Polynesian Festival on the wharf, then hit up the tattoo expo at Michaelangelo's Gallery off Hwy 9. I freaked out when I saw a huge poster of me and the kids dad, Randy on the wall. Trippy. It sorta made me a little sad to see the two of us up there, and where we are now. Time changes things - you never know what will happen to you in your life, or how you will grow and change. What is happening right now could be 100 percent different in a year. Ponder this thought....
We decided to try out that new restaurant downtown called Hulas. This is my brother James and my beautiful daughter Sarah sipping their Hawaiian drinks (Sarah's non alcoholic of course). I didn't really like the restaurant too much. It was small and crowded and a little crampy. The fish was alright, but I wasn't too impressed. The atmosphere was cool though - very Hawaiian. Give it a try and see what you think!
My brother came for a visit from Oregon for a couple weeks and we went to the Boardwalk and hung out. I had to work, so I didn't get to entertain him too much - he also was here to do some painting in exchange for tattoos. We saw eachother in the evening - he was stoked to hop on the cruiser and ride to be near the beach every morning. To tell you the truth - I think that's the only reason he's visiting. This pic was taken early in the day - later that evening we discovered he lost his wallet...probably on on of the rides. The start of his vacation didn't go too well - I backed into his brand new car and cracked the drivers headlight....lost hid wallet....and I think that was it. Poor uncle James....bet he was glad to get home :) Until next visit!!!
It's been a while since I posted (again) but we have been up to a lot! This pic was taken a while back one Saturday afternoon at Pacific Edge. Brendan and I took Brandon and his friend Jake to climb for a while. Brandon is still a little unsure of the steep walls and where to put his feet, but he did great. Brendan belayed him and they learned to work together as a team, which was worth it. Plus great exercise that feels like playing is so fun!!
