Family Movie Night

Friday night's movie was a new one that we bought, that we should have rented first. It was the sequel to Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire called Atlantis: Milo's Return. It seemed to be yet another one of Disney's sequels that was released to video and dvd only, and I see why.

Mattey Turns Two

I'm not sure who was more excited that it was Mattey's second birthday. Megan came in to our room at 5:30am and said, "Dad, today is Mattey's birthday."

Mattey got a new bike and a Strawberry Shortcake doll. Sara, Betsy, and Emma came over and we all celebrated a month of birthdays with some cake and ice cream.

Late Posting for Last Family Movie Night

Last Friday night we watched Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch. Having not seen any of the other Air Bud movies, I thought this one was a decent movie. Megan got really excited about playing baseball after watching it.

Update: We bought Megan her first baseball mit tonight. She can't wait to practice with it.

Two Different Doctor Visits

Last week Mattey and Cooper both had doctor appointments. Mattey for her two year old checkup (and shots) and Cooper just for shots. The difference in the visits was that Cooper is continuing to grow, he's up to almost 11lbs, whereas Mattey is not. She weighed in at 20lbs 10ozs and measured 32 3/4" tall. At this rate Cooper will catch her in no time.

A Golfer I'm Not

After 3 1/2 hours and 131 strokes (at least that's what the score card said) I confirmed the fact that I am not a golfer. My Uncle Scott was in town from Alaska so I took a day off of work to play golf with him at Juday Creek Golf Course.

Happy Birthday Mom!

Mom celebrated her birthday on Tuesday, May 6th by spending a wonderful day with Dad in Michigan City. After a very busy week we finally got together for a few minutes on Friday night to give her a few presents. We got her some photo paper and a new compact flash card for her digital camera. Upon opening the compact flash, she said "Oh wow, I don't have any idea what this is, but I'm sure it's good."

No More Teachers, No More Books...

Another semester back at IUSB is finished. I just completed the final exam in my last class, C151 Multi-User Operating Systems. The final was not very difficult and I was finished in less than a half hour. Last week I finished my final project for my other class, C201 Computer Programming II.

Family Movie Night

Tonight we rented and watched Disney's Treasure Planet. It was a good film, with some great graphics. A probable on the to buy list. Megan said it was a little bit scary due to an evil spider villain.
