Everything has been moving so quickly

I can't even remember when I last posted and what has happened since. I'll try my best.

First, work has been NUTS. I don't think I've ever worked harder (at my place of work) than I have the past couple of weeks. Now, I've worked harder than this on some other projects outside of my job, but this is crazy for what I typically spend my 8-9 hours a day at.

We have been doing a large re-model project at work that I have been over-seeing. It's turning out really nice, but everything is in chaos in the mean time. It's hard working over, under, and around our employees who need to keep working during the day, while the construction is going on. I even have work happening during the evening shifts as well.

Alene and I took a much-needed break and on a whim flew to San Jose over the 4th of July weekend. We went to Monterey one day and rode 17 mile drive. Then we went up to San Fransisco on another day and toured around the city. We went to the Sutro Park and the site of the former Bath Houses, which were amazing. We also drove across the Golden Gate bridge ($8!!!) and visited Fishermans Wharf and Pier 39 areas. It was very nice to get away and just focus on each other. I wish we could do that more often than we get a chance to. Here are some pictures of our trip:

Two of my sisters (Julie and Janna) had babies while we were gone. Julie had a girl and named her Evan. Janna had a boy and they still have not come up with a name :-).

Jeff got married to Mandi last month as well. I'll have pictures on my photobucket site.

I am going to school, but not focusing on it as well as I should. Normally at work I have spare time here and ther to do homework. Like I said lately, I haven't even had time to go to lunch, so my studies have a failed quite a bit.

Caiden is doing well. He took some swimming lessons last month and we're going to enroll him in the next level of courses later this month.

My family reunion is coming and I'm excited to get away for that. It should be fun.

Football season is one month away. That is going to be a blast and I can't wait for that. I'm in the process of doing a fundraiser for my team to raise funds for kids that can't afford to play. Last saturday we raised about $40, which is nice I guess. Tim donated $3 to the cause. Thanks buddy! Oh yeah, he also gave Alene and I a nice big fat melted, then re-formed chocolate bar from Norland.

OK, I've got to get some work done. Check out my photos on (link is on the right) to see if there is anything new. I don't have time to post pictures in my actual posts right now).
