I go back to work full time on Thursday and I am really not excited.  I think I should get to be a stay-at-home dog watcher, don't you?

Anyone who's lived me knows that I lose a lot of hair from my head. Ridiculous amounts.  Josh complains about it because it gets stuck in his RC car wheels and then they can't drive straight.  I feel like I vacuum every other day.  So, a couple days ago I was playing with Maggie when I noticed a hair on her chin.  I tried to wipe it off, but then started pulling and pulling on it and ended up getting one of my 18 inch hairs from her throat/stomach.  Yuck.  

Hopefully she'll stop hacking and coughing now.

Family Time

The King's had their family reunion at Zion National Park this year. Everyone was able to come this year, including the two newest additions to the family, Maggie and Bear. (BTW, everyone loved them, because they are SO CUTE. Especially Maggie.)

We stayed at this awesome cabin, hiked around the Park, and stayed up all night playing Rock Band and Bananagram (the best version of scrabble ever).

Here's the whole family, complete with our cute dogs!

Aw, what a cute family!:

One night we had a pie eating contest. Here are all the contestants:

Here we are after the contest.

Maggie is scared to death of water. But Josh finally convinced her to get her feet wet in a stream. She was barking and crying the whole time.

We went on a hike and our niece Sophie was posing at every chance she got. Perfect model!

So, family reunion = fun. We should do this again sometime.

I knew it, I knew it! Josh and I got callings today and I have the exact same calling as our last ward-Sunday School teacher for the 14 and 15 year olds. Grrrr. The only difference is that in our last ward, I knew it would only last for a year, cause we were planning on moving. But now it could be years before I get released this time!

And Josh pretty much has the same calling as well. Except this time he's the cub scout leader. Hehe. We'll see how he does with all the eight year olds!

So today in church we had to give talks on the pioneers. And in the program they listed me as Brother Lars. That's never happened before. So funny.

Maggie finally learned how to climb up the stairs and was so excited. So Josh decided to teach her how to get down them. She started at the top and made it down two before she rolled the rest of the way down, hitting every stair. Poor girl, I just wish we had recorded it.

Our bathroom smells like campfire.

And we have no idea why.  Any ideas?
