Early, very early, Wednesday morning, while it was still dark, Mark was running his laps around the park right by our Las Vegas home. While he runs, he is very aware of people around him and animals, etc. Well, there was a man walking, probably about 60 or so with headphones on walking laps around the park at the same time.
Mark said that as he was running right when he was running past this walking man, the man screamed at the top of his lungs like Mark had hurt him! Mark was so scared that he jumped. He said that he almost jumped right out of his shoes, it scared him so badly!
I just started laughing uncontrollably. Here we have a 60+ yr old screaming at a 40+ yr old running by him and completely out of the blue. Where is the dignity? Does any of this make sense? I wish I had been a bug on the tree to see it unfold.
So I asked Mark today if he saw the man again. He said that he did that that as he was running closer to the guy, he yelled out a couple times, "Behind you" "behing you" just to make sure he didn't give the guy a heart attack. I guess the guy didn't even acknowledge Mark. Poor Mark he has some pretty good adventures.

One Sunday a couple weeks ago Michael utilized not only 1/3 of the basement but the stairway for inventing and reinventing mini golf in our home. He used boxes, videos, poles, brooms, chairs, pvc pipe and just about anything else that would work. I caught a brief trial run for one of his courses.
Lauren posted a video of her and her friends at the BYU football game with them doing the BYU Cougars Cheer. The camera films each section of the stadium cheering "B!", "Y!", "U", "Cougars!" and whips around and Lauren pops up and yells in a happy cheer, "B!". Kathryn just started laughing a big belly laugh the first time she saw it. Then she said, "Again!". So I played it over about 15 times. That was the first round. This video is the second round on about the 10th time.
We were on our way to Las Vegas from dropping Lauren off in Provo and we started chatting about Kathryn's favorite neighbor, Baily.
Kathryn (and Mommy) had such a nice visit with Baily's family. :)
We miss you guys!
BYU Sendoff Trip in late August with Lauren. We visited with Julie and her family, Sara and her family and Jonthan and his family. Here are some fun video clips I finally figured out how to post.
Sara worked so hard to push the girls. Such entertainment! Such Stamina! What lovely, flowy hair!
Kathryn LOVES the sound of Lauren's voice on the phone. The Sista's chat away. Sometimes Kathryn just listens in awe.
Sometimes she hangs up on Lauren
Sometimes she just walks around or dances as if showing Lauren her moves while Lauren talks :)
