Family Band

I stopped by my dad's house the other night to find a basement full of band equipment! A drum set, three guitars (acoustic, electric & bass), a few amps, and a microphone. It was great! I've never really touched a drum set before so I took some time to become more acquainted. Then I headed over to the guitars and the mike. Here are some fun photos - I only wish I could really play!

Playin' at The Park

In honor of the sun's appearance today, Scott and I ventured to the park across the street for some time on the slides and the swings. We were outside for a grand total of 15 minutes, including travel time. It was pretty hot, and the park was pretty lame. I did take some fun photos, so here they are!

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

Ever seen the movie? Basically it's my all-time favorite chick flick. Remember the part where she makes a family album? Well Julie just blogged about this site, and I thought I'd try it out for the sake of the movie and it was a very interesting experience. Our first baby is adorable, but was not what I was expecting. Our next two looked much more like us.

Three Cups of Tea

I have officially finished my first book from my summer reading list! Three Cups of Tea is the story of Greg Mortenson, a climber who promoted peace "One School at a Time." After his failed attempt to reach the summit of K2, Mortenson lost his course and stumbled into a remote village in Pakistan. After being nursed back to health by the people of Korphe, Mortenson promised to return one day to build a school for the children of the impoverished village. Over the next ten years Mortenson built fifty-five schools throughout Pakistan and Afghanistan.

This book is definitely on my list of books that everyone should read at least once in their lifetime. You can visit the website at for more information. Seven percent of each book purchase through the site is donated toward a girls' education scholarship fund in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Next up? Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer.
