What do you think?

A couple nights ago, Cait was trying to go to sleep while I stayed up reading for a little while. After 20 minutes or so of silence from her, she asks, "Honey? Does Charlie Brown have a nightlight?" I started laughing and said, "Excuse me?" That woke her up and asked why I said that. I told her what happened and she didn't remember any of it. So I leave the question up to you, our loyal readers. Does Charlie Brown have a nightlight? Please vote.

Park City

A couple weeks ago, we spent a spur-of-the-moment weekend in Park City with Caitlyn's family. Her uncle John has a time share there and invited everyone to stay over. We only stayed Friday and Saturday, but it was very relaxing and fun to spend time with Cait's family.

Friday night we ate at Baja Cantina at the base of the Park City Resort, and later that night we played games with everyone until we were too tired to continue.

The next morning, we went shopping at the outlet mall.

There were some girls selling puppies at the outlet mall and Caitlyn begged me to get another dog. You'd think that she wouldn't want another puppy after her post about Allie destroying things while left alone, wouldn't you? The cocker spaniels were pretty cute, though.

After shopping, we went to Olympic Park. Cait, Cathy and I went down the zip line. Everyone else waited for us at the bottom. As you can see, I lead the race the entire way, until Caitlyn caught up somehow and beat us to the bottom.

After the zip line, we went to where they practice aerial skiing. I'm the one in the red pants.

My Turn

Here I am. It's Bryce. Finally bloggin'. I wanted my first post to be monumental in its hilarity, but the inspiration isn't flowing. So you get a mediocre update on what's been going on with us. Please to enjoy:

First off, I'm not gay. I'm married, remember? To a girl. There have been some times in my life when people have questioned my sexual preference. When I didn't get married before my two younger brothers and I'd bring my friend Dave (strictly platonic) to family parties instead of girls I was dating at the time, questions were raised. When I worked at the Olive Garden and wouldn't hit on any of the trashy girls I worked with, some people assumed I was gay because I didn't hit on them and because I "took care of my appearance."

Which brings me to what has been occupying my time lately: The Twilight Series. Yeah, I'm reading those what? Yeah, they're adolescent romance what? That doesn't change the fact that they're entertaining, well-written books.

They really are good. I must admit, I was a little skeptical when Cait tried getting me to read them. She promised me lots of vampire and werewolf fights, so I decided to give them a try. The first book and half of the second book were bo-ring. I won't spoil the plot for anyone who hasn't read them, but be warned: if you're planning on starting the series be ready for LOTS of descriptions of Edward's beauty and LOTS of deciding if he's too dangerous for her or not. Once you get through all that, it gets pretty good. From the middle of the second book to where I am now, at the end of Eclipse, it's quite interesting and captivating. I'm not done yet, so it may start to go downhill, but as of right now, I'm hooked. And for those of you who have read them, I'm totally Team Jacob, which breaks my wife's heart.
