Pumpkin Time

Eva sitting on our porch

Loving her little pumpkin

Seeing Double

I haven't ever really been that into Halloween. I have a few decorations here and there and got Eva an adorable costume. However, I do love pumpkins and Eva shares that love. She gets extremely excited whenever she sees pumpkins. We had a lot of fun the other night picking pumpkins as a family. Now she loves to sit on the front porch playing with the pumpkins and running around with her little one. I'm surprised the little pumpkin hasn't exploded yet, she's dropped it plenty of times.

Up and Running

So, our new computer finally showed up today which means that Ashley will be taking back her post as lead blog contributor. I am sorry to those who have come to embrace the new direction that this blog was taking, folk rock and soccer, but the rest of you will be happy to see more pictures of Eva, who is cuter every day. There are also always new stories of hijinks that she gets herself into as well. Hopefully Ash will update soon, if not, I will have to find some more random videos to post. I don't think you all can take much more of it...

Sorry, you get another Clay post. We are waiting to get our new computer, our replacement just died :(, so it's all me. Ash and I are getting pumped for our midweek excitement. An event that has been in the making for four years (not as dramatic as Neil...at least in that sense). We have tickets to the first game in Real Salt Lake's new Rio Tinto Stadium, thanks TDA! We are pumped to see them secure a crucial three points in ESPN2's weekly primetime MLS matchup this Thursday, October 9th. Be sure to check it out, 8 pm mst. Here's a little stadium pub to get you excited...we are. One point of interest about the stadium...no bleachers, just chairs!

Neil Effing Diamond

It's as if the stars have lined up for an event 26 years in the making. On the night of December 19th (my b-day) Ashley and I will be enjoying the musical stylings of the greatest singer songwriter in the history of all worlds! Neil (effing) Diamond. It's like Bob Wiley said: "There are two types of people in this world: those who like Neil Diamond and those who don't..." I, personally, LOVE him. Jealous!
