Fred...

This little feller happens to be our new pet. His name is Fred and was rescued from a job site Ross was working on. Jaxon is so proud of his new found friend. No promises on how long Fred will be apart of the family for a few reasons.... One is that I am forced to catch 8-10 grasshoppers a day to feed this growing toad and more importantly, I did a google image search on this little guy and found out he is apparently the most endangered amphibian in the country and has some type of spuuudge-like venom that he spits out that can stop the hearts of small mammals. He is called the Wyoming Toad and for some reason he is special and there all kinds of tree/frog hugging crazies out there building websites by the hundreds in order to conserve the legacy of Fred and his friends. I will for now continue catching bugs in the hopes of selling him to some environmentalist frog master for a large sum of money..
Somehow my wake boarding skill have regressed! I'm hoping to get my mojo back by the end of the summer....

on the other hand Ross is getting pretty tricky these days on the wake board.........


Thanks to my mom and sister we headed out to the lake without the kids. I got to layout in the sun, wake board and wake skate... We sure do love it when they come but I would be lying if I said I didn't love not having to bring bottles, diapers or juice boxes along for the trip.



One of my favorite things about having a little girl is getting to squeeze her chubby little bum into bikini bottoms. I have dreamed about this day!

What a nice mom and sisters!
My wakeboarding skills need to start kicking in too, i seriously used to be good. I think we have a little "Wuss- itis" probably from those cute little babies we have!

Looks like a fun summer!

It truly is wondrful to have the break without the kids on the boat. I can totally agree!!! it was so good to see you the other day and catch up!!!

I love that the toad is endangered AND dangerous, yet he still remains on your back porch. I have nightmares about catching grasshopers with my hands...wouldn't do it for a million dollars. Ok, maybe for a million.

Tell Ivy that she is one sexy babe in that bikini. I love it.
