Diamondbacks Game

For Randy's birthday this year I got him Diamondbacks tickets (thanks to Keith for the tip about StubHub) and we went to the game against the Giants this past Friday. Randy and I had a pretty good time watching the Diamondbacks lose. The seats were pretty close to the field - I think it's the closest I've ever sat. We had a good laugh at the vendors calling out their crazy sales pitches - one guy offered free stuff to the next person who raised their hand and then told them the 'free stuff' was ice. People put their hands down pretty quickly when he offered to start throwing ice to them. I also learned that if you want to catch a foul ball to sit one section over. Three foul balls landed in the section next to us. It was a lot of fun. Happy Birthday, Randy! :)

Latest video

Here is the latest video of Hudson. I was in my bedroom when I heard Hudson yelling "mum-ma! mum-ma!" I hurried into Cooper's bedroom and found him on top of the toy box. I grabbed my camera and recorded this video. He's such a character. :)

Also, here's a shot of Cooper with his new haircut in his new shirt & tie for church.

Happy Independence Day!

The other day I was watching the news and the newscaster commented on Chelsea Clinton's upcoming wedding. That got me thinking about her dad when he was President and about all the other Presidents we've had through-out history. So, in honor of the 4th of July I spent some time learning about our Presidents. These are a few of the fun things I learned:

1. The President with the shortest term in office was William Henry Harrison. He served for 1 month before dying of complications from a cold.

2. Our 11th President was named Polk. (Just say President Polk a few times, it's funny) :)

3. Zachary Taylor was our 12th President and the only President never to have held any previous elected office. He only served for 16 months as President when he died from gastroenteritis.

4. President Teddy Roosevelt was the youngest President, taking office at the age of 42 after President McKinley was shot and killed.

5. President Grover Cleveland is the only one to serve 2 non-consecutive terms. He served as the 22nd President from 1885 - 1889 and then again as the 24th President from 1893 - 1897.

6. Apparently, President Taft was the heaviest President (avg of 300lbs) and also the last President to have facial hair in office. (Random, I know).

Anyway, I hope you all have a great 4th of July weekend!
