John & Liz came down for a short visit this weekend. Liz pulled off a great hoax in John's behalf. She had secretly bought tickets for the Rush concert (one of John's fav. bands), and talked to John's boss so that he could leave work early. She called John at work yesterday and told him that we had had a house fire and immediately needed help cleaning up. Anyhoo, that was a good one.
Shortly after they got here, we heard banging coming from the living room. I ran in to see what was going on, and I discovered Justice and Erik (both 1 1/2 years old) banging on the hard wood floors with a hammer a piece. I wish I could have gotten a picture, but I had to stop the damage before it got too far. Justice was banging with the claw end of the hammer.
Another funny thing was this: John, Todd, Bruce & I went running at the watershed trails today. This is a nice place for running/biking/walking, so you will always see other people out on the trail. We decided that it would be funny to act silly whenever we saw other people. We all switched from running to skipping when a guy rode past on his bike. There was also galloping like on a horse, while whooping and swinging a pretend lasso overhead. The Monty-Python horse trot thing, Bruce's over done swishy gay guy run. I was laughing so hard I couldn't run. We only actually did these things to two passersby. It was too hot and too hard to run today, so after a couple we just ran normal. We'll have to do that again.
Snapshot of Hazel at Age Two - This picture right here is the essence of Hazel. She's such a ray of sunshine in our family and for pretty much anyone who meets her, and she's always read...
