Spencer: Brandon... where's your brain?
Brandon: Inside my head.
Spencer: Where's your cerebral cortex?
Brandon: Huh? What's that?
Spencer: It's part of your brain.
Brandon: Oh, my turn. Dad where's your dignity?
Spencer: (Silent, and staring)
(Mom laughing hysterically from the other room)
Aubrey: It's in your throat.
Brandon = Never ending free entertainment.

These were the mounted soldiers representing the Buffalo soldiers that were stationed at Ft. Huachuca, in the 1800's the Fort that is located right next to Sierra Vista.
Now I bet you are wondering if I copied this picture from somewhere..... Nope. This is me playing around on some photo editing softwear that I love. I tinkered around with all the photos in this post.
This is Emily in the float that she road on. She had to try out at school to be able to ride on it. They sang patriotic songs down the whole parade route. Sorry about the quality of the video it was taken on the little digital camera that we have that's not the most high tech. Emily is located in the lower right of the float.

This was Tyson's first time to California and to the beach. His first time with his feet in the sand. There's no going back now, California all the way!
We went down to OB ( Ocean Beach) where they have some pretty cool tide pools. The kids saw lots of different sea animals and played around on all the rocks.

Our silly kids being silly.
Aubrey and Brandon feeding the animals at Bates Nut Farm. It was a fun time had by all, and a yearly family tradition. The kids always look forward to going to Bates.

Kids: Mom can we stop at chum bucket on the way home to eat?
Spencer and I: HUH???
Kids: Yeah, you know..... the place that we had chicken and dumplings at on the way over.
Spencer and I: You think that place is called Chum Bucket?
Spencer and I: So.... do you know what a chum bucket is?
Kids: No, what is it?
Spencer and I: It's the bucket that fishermen use to store there bloody chopped up rotting fish in. So they can throw it in the ocean to try to catch sharks.
Kids: EWW that's gross. So can we go to Chum Bucket?
Spencer and I: It's called Cracker Barrel, not Chum Bucket.
Kids: So can we go?
Spencer and I: (looking at each other with look of baffle on our faces) I guess.
Needless to say they continued to call it Chum bucket several times after this conversation. Where do these kids come up with this stuff?

Aren't they cute when they are getting along?
Thugs at play. Fo shizzle.
Sassy Sassy Sassy!!! We made shirts for all the kids to wear to show there spirit. It was a great time had by all. We can't wait to go back and win again. Spencer and I have yet to go to a Chargers game where they have lost. We MUST be good luck charms....So if anyone is willing to sponsor us on any of the playoff games we would happily attend to ensure a win.
Way to go Chargers!

Brandon decided to give Karate a try this summer. At first I was a little worried that he would attempt to "practice" on his sisters but he has really been responsible and kept his karate moves to himself. Brandon REALLY likes the uniform he gets to wear. You will often find him check himself out in the mirrors of the class room. Focus Brandonson Focus!

Spencer took his scouts out this last weekend for the first time as the scout master and look what they found lurking around camp. Needless to say it wasn't the scariest bear. I think it at least provided so much needed entertainment.
FYI: This is taken at the top of Carr Peak at the camp ground. Can I say a little to close to home?

Brandon is on his way to kindergarten, and he can't wait. He thought that once he graduated that kindergarten would start right away. He wasn't getting that there is still a summer vacation in between.
This is Brandon with his teacher Mrs. K. She was great with Brandon. He is really going to miss her.
