Waiting At Shriner's

Sophi and Cali both went with me up to Shriners hospital last month. We had to wait quite a while while they work on Cali's wheelchair.  It's amazing how much more patient kids are in these types of situations if there's an electronic device for them to enjoy!

Cultural Daddy Date

Last month there was a great local opportunity to celebrate Chinese culture.  There is a traditional Chinese dance company from New York that is called Shen Yun.  You can see some trailers of their performances at  When I saw it advertised I thought Graci and Cali would love to attend.  They agreed:)  The three of us went up to Salt Lake for a fancy evening together and had a wonderful time.  I'm so glad for our ties to China and for opportunities to continue to learn about the Chinese history and culture.  Love you girls!  -Dad

Wax Attack

Christi has been threatening for years to wax my back. Tonight she decided the time had come.  OUCH!  Yes, I am blogging as I am being tortured. Thank heavens for iPhones.  OUCH!  Christi doesn't have a lot of sympathy for me, although she is impressed with how well I'm enduring it. She says she's been having her eyebrows waxed for years and I just need to suck it up.  OUCH!  Taylor, Jessica and Parker are watching with avid interest. Parker keeps saying things like "I don't know why I keep watching. It's really kind of nasty. But I can't look away."  OUCH!  Jessica keeps offering great supportive verbalizations. Things like "how much hair did he have before? Was it like a monster?" or "Dad, aren't you glad you're doing this?  Isn't it worth it? All this pain?"  OUCH!  I'm going to sign off now, before I black out.
