I can't get over how small he is. His wrist is almost exactly as wide as my thumb.


Home sweet home

Everyone's home and happy now.

Also, here's a short video clip of the little guy:

Ammon is all ready to go home.

Sure looks small in his car seat.


Burrito Time

No wonder Jamie craved so many tacos... We had a burrito.

Nine hours old

His stats are 6lbs 6oz and 19.75 long. Mom and baby are doing great.



Baby Care Class

I'm now a diaper changing and swaddling know it all. Which I'm pretty sure ranks right up there with Ninja Warrior.


Giant Black Widow

The front porch is decorating itself for Halloween. Scary.



New shirt from Sheree ranks right up there with the others!


Miata Vacation

This just looked funny to me.


BSU Bronco Fan

This is the ultimate Boise State Bronco fan! Look close and you'll see his plate even reads GOBRONX


Sandy Point Cyclocross Race

Today was the fifth race in the local cyclocross series. It was a great day to be racing and I was feeling quite a bit better than last week. I still couldn't keep up with the leaders pace after a few laps pegged at the redline and ended up tied for 9th overall... and 7th Cat3. Not too shabby considering the course was very technical, and I'm pretty good at falling down in those situations. So the picture is of Richard Feldman, who is a 4 time National Cyclocross Champion (see the stars & stripes?).

Also, notice that nobody is on his tail...


My Jack-O-Lantern

Here's the finished product.

The Whole Gang

Carving Pumpkins

Isn't carving pumpkins a bit of a strange tradition? FYI, it's much easier with power tools, but you may get some funny looks. I'm pretty sure Nate's still cleaning pumpkin off his family room floor. :)


Dirty Hat

I've never tried this before and was surprised how well it worked. Dirty hat is now clean!


Eagle Island Cyclocross Race #2

OK, so I forgot to snap a phone picture while I was actually at the race. But here's a shot of my cassette after I cleaned a whole pile of debris out of it. The race didn't go well from the start since I managed to fall off the bike a couple times in the first 2 laps and couldn't catch back up with the leaders... but then the kicker was a weed that completely engulfed my gears. It was wrapped all around the cassette cogs, from top to bottom, which only allowed one working gear. I had to stop mid race and with the help of a friend de-weed it. Soooo... long story short I placed 12th and blame the weeds! But being sick didn't help anything either.

I hope that's enough excuses, because I can't think of any more. :)


Tamarack Cyclocross

So I took a drive up to McCall last weekend and did some racing! Managed to snag 5th and 2nd placings between the two races. Nice. Eagle Island races continue tomorrow so that should be fun... if only I wasn't sick. We'll see how that works.
