Eric is a little overwhelmed and kinda has the deer in the headlights look but I know that he will do a great job and our family will be blessed. Eric's parents were able to be here (thanks pam and scott) to support him and be here for us. My brother and his family and Eric's sisters and their family were also there. It is so wonderful to be close to family. I hope they all know how much it meant to both Eric and I that they were there.
Well now we are on the countdown to HAWAII!!!!!! I leave tomorrow to take the boys to California so my parents can watch them. I hope my parents survive! I know they will and I hope it only makes their relationships with the boys that much stronger. Eric and I on the other hand will be kid free, and responsibility free for 8 whole days! We plan on scuba diving, scuba diving and scuba diving some more. There will be some other activities involved but that is the main one. We are so excited and will post pictures.

Knock down those bottles Andrew
Love this pic. May be one of the rare moments that you can see the love between the two
Pull boys Pull!
Look at that height! Future basketball star maybe??
Andrew was able to go to a basketball clinic yesterday at the Utah Flash Factory put on by the IR Iran olympic basketball team. It was a fun day for him and the players were so nice to all the kids helping them make baskets and teaching them skills. My battery died on my camera so I don't have any other pics. He is famous now though because he did get his photo taken and he is on NBA.com. He is so excited about that. He was with his cousins and it was a fun day.
So Andrew got an idea to sell something for money.He wanted to make ladybug cookies (chocolate chip with m&m's were good enough). He set up a stand and went to work. He did pretty well and lasted about 10 minutes then the neighbors came out and he wanted to play with them so I looked like I was the one selling the cookies for awhile. It was fun and he enjoyed it.
