You're It

Ok, the tag. I've never responded to a tag. How are you even supposed to know you got "tagged", besides coincidence? Anyway, I guess Laura tagged me and here I go.

I had to fudge this one, because I only have like 1 folder with more than or equal to 16 pictures.
So this is what I am calling 16th of 16th.
Chris playing the guiter on Rock Band at Maura and Steve's rockin Sunday party last year.

12th of 12th.
KC and I on the Daddy Daughter last year.

8th of 8th.
On the way to Lake Powell 2008. Our fruit roll ups had tattoo things on them. Clark started all this fun, so I think this picture is very appropriate to pay him homage.

4th of 4th.
The Fam + Andrew having Fazoli's at our house one summer day. We took another picture after this with me in Chris' place, because he was obviously ruining it.

Bienvenido a Miami

Marianne's uncle Mark works with a company called the Bowl Games of America who organize parts of the pregame and halftime shows of many of the bowl games with concert bands and dance groups from around the country. This year he hired me to help out at the Orange Bowl in Miami. Let me just say that being in Miami during the winter is amazing. It was over 70 degrees (Fahrenheit) everyday we were there. I helped Mark with sound equipment, moving the groups from their seats to the field on game day and other random assignments with which he needed help. It was so cool to be down there. I only wish Marianne could have come as well. The only other bad part was I wasn't able to watch the Sugar Bowl because I was flying back to Salt Lake (don't worry, I downloaded the game on iTunes and have now watched it. DOMINATION!). Actually, there was one other bad part. It was Cincinnati vs Virginia Tech. Had either one of these teams gone undefeated in their conference, they would have played in the National Championship because they have money. Utah was eliminated from the National Championship before the season even started. I hate the BCS. The system is broken. Demand a playoff system to whoever you think can help, especially if you know someone like Ohio State's university president. Of course, if you know that person, why are you reading my blog? Read this article.The view looking out from the hotel.
The hotel pool with a waterfall.
The field.The largest iguana I think I've ever seen. It was just walking around outside of my building.
