A couple more pictures, but less scary

Can you stand on your head?

Eric insists this doesn't hurt.

Also, here's another picture from a little while back. I gotta say, this may be my most favorite picture of Becka and I. This was taken by my wonderful Aunt Pam in Olympia, Washington while we were on our honeymoon 8 1/2 years ago. For some reason my left arm looks completely scorched. I assure you this is not the case. It's a dark tan (picture was taken in August) that came out looking red hot when the picture was developed.
Doesn't Becka look so pretty?!?! Sorry about the yellow.

Need a laugh?

If this doesn't make you laugh, it will at least make you raise an eyebrow or shake your head.

Recently I was going through some of our old photo albums and I ran across this little gem.
I remember there was a time in my life when I was very self-conscience about making myself look like an idiot. You can see that's not the case anymore.

Honestly, I can't remember what in the world I was doing to bring on this ridiculous pose. I was 12 or 13 at the time, so that's probably reason enough.

This is NOT awesome!!

I'm one of those people who absolutely loathe "reality tv." To me, reality tv is part evidence of the downward spiral in today's society. With that said, I should be a little more specific about the kind of reality tv I hate. For the most part it's the dating kind of shows, American Idol type shows, The Bachelor (or whatever it's called), Survivor and...well I think you get the idea. I understand there can be some good shows with a good purpose, but for the sake of argument I'm generalizing here.
Simply put, I miss plain ol' sitcoms. sigh.

Geico had a funny commercial doing a parody of reality tv a couple years ago. I was reminded of it today. Take a look.

Eric Rigby: Future Bronco

Eric, one day wants to play football for Boise State. I went ahead and got started promoting this 7 year old phenom by making a highlight video while playing some backyard football with the family. OK, actually we were just having some fun today.

It's important to note that I could probably use some of the outtakes and create Timo's own football highlight video.

etrade baby

If you watch any TV, there's a good chance you've seen the etrade commercials with the talking baby. Funny stuff.
Here's some outtakes from the making of the etrade baby commercials. I give this video a solid PG-13 rating so if you're easily offended don't watch.

A new look with new bikes!

Well, I think I'm content with my new template...for now anyway. I'm about as fickle as a teenage girl with most things. I feel the constant need for change since I analyze, then over-analyze pretty much any thought that crosses my mind. It's exhausting at times but it blends well with my mostly conservative nature. Anyway, I'm steering way off course here. I hope the new template looks okay on most monitors and browsers. Feel free to look around.

In other news, Eric and Timo got new bikes today! I get excited for them because I remember how exciting it was to get a new bike. Let's all thank Uncle Sam for Eric and Timo's new bikes.

Notice Eric's proud look in this picture. Maybe with some arrogance sprinkled on top. Also, notice Timo in the background. As I was turning on the camera, Timo wiped out on his bike right behind Eric. If I had been ready 10 seconds earlier I could have captured a hilarious picture. At Timo's expense of course. Sorry Timo.

Here's a rugged looking Timo showing off his new wheels.

Eye See

I was fooling around with the camera this evening and I took some cool eye pictures.
Take a look:

Here's Eric. Even with the shadow around his eye, I still like the way it looks.

Here's Timo. I envy Timo's blue eyes.

My left eye and Eric's right eye.

I realize this isn't an eye picture like the others but it's my blog and I can do whatever I want with it. Actually, I love this picture too so I thought I would include it.

This year Boise is fortunate enough to be the host city for the Winter Special Olympics. This is a fantastic honor for the Treasure Valley.
I thought in honor of the Special Olympics I would share one of my favorite sports stories of all time. There's a good chance you've heard the story already but that doesn't matter because it's worth watching or hearing a few times.

Over the past couple years, I'm guessing I've watched this video around 10-12 times. Each time, without fail when I watch this video my eyes begin to well up. A very inspirational story about Jason McElwain.

Sacraficial Timo

                                                                  (You know the drill, click to enlarge)

You may have noticed this picture on the right hand column of my page. Brent pointed out to me how funny Timo looks in it.
The picture was taken in September 2007 at a place near Mt. Rainier in Washington. The family was walking around and I noticed a circle of rocks. Of course the first thing I think of is devil-ish, hence the title "Sacraficial Timo."
If you notice Timo wasn't really sure what to think when I made him lay down in this sinister looking circle. I assured him I was just taking a picture and nothing evil would happen. I should point out that (Eric reminded me of this earlier today) moments before I made Timo lay down we spotted a snake slithering around on the ground not far from where the picture was taken.  It's possible that contributed to the sour look Timo was giving me.
Anyway, this picture has reached the status of one of my personal favorites.

"Timo, meet wall. Wall meet Timo."

Today, I learned doing a "fumble recovery drill" in our living room is a bad idea.
Just ask Timo.
While chasing after a fumbled football, Timo ran, and let me emphasize RAN, into the corner of the wall. Poor kiddo.

In other, and less painful news, Mikey is getting cuter every day!

Steelers 27 Cards 23

Superbowl XLIII certainly didn't disappoint. After the first quarter I thought we might be in for a yawnfest but fortunately that wasn't the case. The catch by Santonio Holmes in the corner of the end zone to pretty much seal the game was nothing short of spectacular.
In my last post about the Superbowl I intentionally did not make a game prediction. Every time I thought about what might happen between an explosive offense and the number one defense my head almost exploded. I simply picked my team to cheer for and hoped it wouldn't be a blow-out.
And yes, I did eat an abnormal amount of Buffalo Wings. I can't help it, Becka makes them perfect!

                                            Santonio Holmes makes this spectacular catch to take the lead

Eric had been counting down the number of days until the Superbowl. He normally does this with holidays and birthdays (well, his birthday). So, yesterday morning when he woke up, he was fully aware it was Superbowl Sunday. He decorated the top of his dresser for this occasion.

The funny part is there were a couple footballs he couldn't find. Also, you should see how many basketballs we have!
