Living in a Van Down by the River

What a bunch of freaks
Speaking of freaks, I'm the dork in the back with his arms in the air
Before we left for the race, Heather and I tried on a small part of our costumes

Well, we finished the 188 mile Wasatch Back Relay in about 30 hours. Luckily, we didn't have to wear the 70's outfits the whole time! After 188 miles and over 30 hours in the same vehicle with the same people (luckily we were able to take a shower during that time), I was more than ready to be done. Glad to say that I did it, and all in all it was a fun (?) experience. It wasn't so much the amount of running, it was the running that you had to do after being awake for over 28 hours and sleeping for 30 minutes on a gymnasium floor in some high school in the middle of nowhere!

Bottom line, we made it...and I look damn good in those shorty-shorts!
(More pics to come of the actual race...some pretty cool scenery)

Craig William Sleight

10/17/1952 - 6/11/2009
For those who might not have heard, Jordie's father, Craig, passed away last Thursday night. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, son, and friend. His sense of humor, dry wit, and practical jokes always brought smiles to our faces. We will miss him very much, but we know that he is in a better place now. We are so grateful that he was able to meet and spend time with Garrett before he died. Thank you so much for all of your thoughts and prayers.

Oquirrh Mountain Temple

The three of us attended the Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house last Saturday and it was a great day. The new temple is beautiful and it was neat to be able to go through as a family, espacially now that we have Garrett. It has a little different feeling and a deeper meaning now that he is here.

It's Been A Little While

We haven't posted anything for while, so here are a few pics to update. Since Garrett pretty well dominates our lives now, they are mainly centered around him. At his 2 month doctors appointment, he was 12 1/2 lbs and 25 inches. Apparently very tall, a little skinny, and he has a pin head. We still like him and think he's pretty cute, expecially now that he has slept through the night for a couple weeks in a row.
Garrett loves bath time, and Jordan loves his dimply little bum
A pretty lady and a good looking baby, especially when he's sleepy
Otis still thinks he is in charge and likes to wear Garrett's hats...well, not really, but we think he looks pretty funny in them
Otis still sits on Garrett from time to time but Garrett clearly doesn't seem to mind
Once again, very cute when he's in a good mood
