Happy Anniversary Justin

It's been 7 years and the entire 7 years has been sprinkled with comments of, "Man I REALLY want to go deep sea fishing!" Justin has never been. Dang, I've even been deep sea fishing (a long time ago) and I don't like to fish. When I heard about this fishing trip from my old family friend Jay I called Justin and told him to hop online and sign up to go. Subsequently I became "the best wife ever", that's right.

Justin, Tad (Jay's brother-in-law and my cousin's husband and I've known him since I was born) and Jay. Is it just me or does the short guy have the biggest fish?

They sliced and diced those things right there on... plastic patio tables? That had to smell.

They saw killer whales! In the Sea of Cortez! Not common. Justin's guide said he's NEVER seen them there before.

I assume this is the guide, but Justin caught this eel. It was thrown back, but an exciting catch.

And he caught this sand shark! I think these animals are attracted to him.

This big huge thing is a totuava. It's endangered and he had to let it go. Bummer.

He was gone about a week and had a blast. He'll definitely go again.

The Barstow Mustache Growing Contest

Justin's office had a mustache growing contest in memory of the fallen officer. For a long while I thought Justin would definitely fall into the "nice try mustache" category. He proved me wrong.

Have I ever told you how much I dislike facial hair? I don't like it! Who is this man that keeps coming in our home? I don't know him.

Hair cuts

MacKenzie can't stop cutting her hair. I never actually catch her in the act, but she's no so smart about cleaning up the leftovers (which are usually ALL over the bathroom counter). A few weeks ago she had to get her self induced mullet fixed. Thanks Brenda!

Her reply to all this hair cutting business, "I just LOVE short hair mom!" Followed by a toothy smiley and a sparkle in her eyes. I mean what do you say to such charm.

And then someone mentioned that she looked like Julie Andrews. And who doesn't like the Sound of Music?!

Kennedy goes to kindergarten

I NEVER thought I'd be the mom secretly crying underneath her sunglasses, but I AM! What a nerd! Kennedy did so good though, no tears, but I could see the relief in her face when she saw her little primary friend in her class.

My nerves were kicking in for her. I've been hoping this day would come for so long (while also scheming on how to get MacKenzie in there too... she looks old enough) and it's here. And look how cute. She was SO embarrassed!

If we're not moving at least I can go on a trip!

Why not go on a little plane ride to the south? It'll be my first real visit to "the Lone Star" and I can't wait. I hope a tornado comes through!
