Life According To Ty

Ty discovered the camera last week and conducted his own little photo shoot. It is a perfect representation of the Things That Are Important To Ty.

Brother Briggs!

the activity book he picked out at the BYU bookstore

The session ended with quite a few shots of big brother along with about 20 one second videos of briggs smiling because Ty didn't realize it was in video mode.

Meet Frosty

The kids have always wanted a dog.

Brian and I have not.

Because we have 3 kids.

So what do I do? I answer a Craiglist ad and become...

A Doggy Daycare provider!

Now we have Frosty three or four days a week. He runs errands with me in the car. He joins me for my morning run, and he keeps the kids entertained and active (they all want to take him for a walk).

Now, this situation could have turned out to be a disaster. But we lucked out and got a dog who has Briggs's personality. He rarely barks. He doesn't chew on things or leave his mark in a stinky-oh-great-I-have-to-clean-that-up way. And he never runs off or chases people or other dogs.

The best part is, he pays for most of the kids extra curricular activities.

Part time pet + money = win/win situation.

Take that! Financial Gremlins!

This is what you get when you try to cook dinner while listening to your ipod.

It turns out a neighbor found it on his way home from work and brought it home to show his daughter.

Then it escaped from his car.

Then Ty found it.
