The Wreck

(This is Chris writing)
On Tuesday afternoon on the way home from soccer I was riding my bike on the sidewalk along Wasatch Drive by Layton High. There is a traffic light as this road intersects with Fort Lane. The light was green going my direction so I was headed toward the crosswalk. As I was doing so a car was approaching turning right onto Wasatch Drive but I assumed he'd see me. And we all know what happens when you assume. His light was red so he slowed down to see if anyone was coming from the left and just continued through. Unfortunately I was in the crosswalk when that happened. He accelerated into the left side of my bike. I still had my shinguards on he hit those and then I was able to extricate my left leg from the left side of the bike while simultaneously setting my right foot down and hopping away from the bike, leaving it under the front of his car. I was fine. Maybe a bump on the left knee. The bike, however, did not make it.
The front wheel, bent and misshapen.The back wheel, also bent and misshapen.The left foot pedal, bent. I don't know how nothing happened to my foot, ankle or leg.

Baby Shower!

LeeAnn and Jill Christensen threw me a baby shower this week. It was so fun, and I loved being able to chat and laugh with family. I am so thankful for everybody and their willingness to make sure Camden is one of the cutest kids on the block by rapidly increasing his wardrobe.
Thank you everybody!

Kelsey and Justice.

McCall and LeeAnn.

Mayleen and Julie. (Laughing at Jill I'm sure.)

Jill and Reagan.

Julie and Emily. (If you can't tell, I caught Emily mid-story telling.)

What a wonderful family. Thanks everybody!

A bit of lately

A picture journal of our lives lately.
(Picture captions can be found below each picture.)

Ring burn? My actual wedding ring got safely tucked away back into it's original box so these pregnant fingers will stop getting this ring rash.

Gug and I went on a hike the day before the 4th of July up Adams Canyon. So fun.

Chris was gone on the High Adventure with the priests and teachers in our ward, so Erica stepped up to take our 8 month (32 week) prego picture.

Serious Kaysville parade watching by Clark. They got those cool necklaces at the parade.

An orthodontist invited our dental office (and the rest of the world) to a party at the Roy Aquatic Center last Thursday. Chris had told me he was going to perform a double back flip. This is him in preparation to ascend.

The 1.5 back flop.
I wish I would have continued filming him as he came out of the pool saying "owie! owie! That really hurt!"

The burn from slapping the water.

These boys were doing some sweet flippies and jumps off the boards.
Jake, Clark, Jon.

Clark's constant crew as of late. Chris, Clark, Jake, and Jon.

Mom, Dad, and Clarkie.
