WOO HOO! We have some hopeful news for Mike to get back to work. We got an update today that they have come up with a contract that the union members will be voting on in the next 4-5 days which means Mike can probably be working next week.

We left Thursday, Oct 2nd and arrived Friday night Oct 3rd. We drove through the night to make it not so painful for Payton to sit for 24-25 hours. She did pretty darn good, as we kept her mouth full with food, her dvd player on, and lots of milk, toys, and rest stops for her to run around at. We first went to Gilbert for a few days to spend the time with Dean, Kelley and Dillon. We all had a good time as they were more than generous while we stayed there. We were well taken care of and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Payton had so much fun with them and not to mention how spoiled she got.
Payton, Poopa and Nana! I thought I got a picture with Dean and his eyes open. He is not flash friendly :)!
Gangster Nana and her grill! She really had one!!!

I'm sure Kari will have somethings to post but I myself as Payton's daddy wanted to post something as well. Today is Payton's second birthday. How amazing is it to have Payton in my life. I show a lot of selfishness in my life but I do try my hardest to give as much as I can to my daughter who has such an amazing spirit. She is so loving, sweet, beautiful, smart, funny, energetic, and on and on. I could go on all day about how great my daughter is but I feel it and thats one thing that can't be taken away. I want her life to be the best and I hope that she can enjoy today and her party tomorrow as a great point in her life. Happy Birthday sweetie!!!

Just an FYI to everyone. Kari, Payton, and I have taken a trip to visit family in Arizona. We left Washington on Thursday October 2nd at about 11pm and we arrived in Gilbert where my dad and step mom live at 1 am October 4th. We'll be spending a few days down here in the valley until Wednesday the 8th and then we'll be heading up to Show Low that day and leaving there for home on Sunday the 12th. So anyone in the valley or in the mountains who would like to see Payton or I (I'm not that important) we'll be around. Updates and pictures will be up in the coming week or so. We'll be having a birthday party for Payton too since it's her birthday on Friday the 10th. So get a hold of us if you're around.
