School Picnic

Friday Quinn's elementary school
had a
picnic for all the families.
Like all good parents,
I got our picnic food from
In-N-Out Burger
as directed by my son.
I think all of the parents were there as well as
Winter Visitors!

We had a guest on our blanket.
Yes, an ant came to our picnic.
However, I can't see it anywhere in this shot.
Believe me, it's there....somewhere.
Maybe in the shadow?

Here's a view from our spot.
It was such a nice day.
Almost too warm.
Gotta love AZ weather in the Fall/Winter.

Emily's a Winner!

So Emily Zoe won this fashion type of review
from this really cute girl,
who runs a popular blog,
who lives here in the valley.
She ran a contest that Emily entered and was one of five winners!
The blog is:
It's super cute, especially if you're
well, of the younger type.
Em got to meet the stylist at
the best store ever,
for her style session.

This is one of the outfits that was picked out for her.
Can't hardly see that 29+ week baby there.
I kind of invited myself to go and watch.
Is that weird?
My rationalization is that Pei Wei is right by
so it was an obvious choice!
Two birds with one stone.
I love multi-tasking!

Fukuoka, Japan!!

Although I'm a little late in posting the news,
we're still really excited!
On Friday, October 22, 2010
R. Cole Tipton got his mission call
after waiting for
three weeks and one day to
That was a long time to wait.
But, it was worth it!
Who would have thought another Tipton was going
Not me!
I should have known.

Does this look like your typical missionary?
He didn't shave the whole time he waited for his papers.
Was it some form of protest?
Was it some form of hunger strike, except the shaving kind?
No, I'm most definite that it's just being lazy.
Pretty sure that's it.

Cole had the family meet down at the hospital 'cause
I was workin'.
My co-workers watched the scene on the surveillance cameras in triage.
A guy walked buy, obviously of the same religion, and said,
"Kind of a weird place to open your mission call."
Yep.  It was a weird place, but we still had lots of fun.

Once again, the computer's being dumb and I can't load any more photos.
I will get revenge.
Don't worry!
