Axis and Allies

One evening, Bryce convinced me to play Axis and Allies. He was so pleased that I would play, I couldn't change my mind--even when we spent the whole night setting up the board and reading the rules. A few days later we actually began to play. Bryce was having so much fun being the Axis, that I couldn't back out when he decimated the entire British Fleet with Germany or invaded all of Asia including India with Japan. But perhaps I should have quit because I had no idea that this game would make me so crazy. I have decided that I do not ever want to be President of the United States because I am not fit for war. Our cat, Knitty, has graciously consented to take my place at the board game. I don't think Bryce will win because Knitty sits on the dice.

Bruce Wayne Hansen was appropriately Bat Dog for Halloween. It took both me and Bryce to get the costume on him before he could chew it off. And he wouldn't keep the ears on his head, but after a while he calmed down and posed for us. He didn't get to go trick-or-treating, but that's okay because pugs are prone to obesity.

We have a dog!!

Bryce and I have been joined by a dog. His name is Bruce. (Bryce said he looks like a bat, so we have named him after the illustrious Mr. Wayne.) He used to belong to the neighbors, but I suppose he wandered over to our house one too many time because they gave him to us. If we can cure him of his alleged tendency to mark his territory indoors, he will be the perfect pet. The cat, however, isn't so sure.

Happy Birthday Fiona, John and Steve!

Yesterday the old high school gang got together for our annual celebration of the May birthdays. In attendance were the following:

The kids were left behind (in our case the cat) and we met at Tucci's at Trolley Corners. (Did you all know that I worked for a summer at the old Trolley Square movie theaters?) We laughed, we sang, we made riotous noise in the restaurant and a good time was had by all. We missed Dave, Liz and Christine and hope to see you all in December. Oh, and we decided that we are going to spend New Year's this year in Disneyland. Details will be forthcoming.

Brand New Blog

Hi all. I have been meaning to start a blog to keep up with friends and family. Bryce and I are so busy we are not great at keeping up with everyone. This blog is our first effort at trying to let you all know what we are up to. Our most recent activity (at which we took pictures) was the Race for the Cure on May 12th in downtown Salt Lake. There were 16,000 people at the race. It was a veritable sea of people and the weather was great.

Bryce say we can make the race a tradition. Next year you can all join us. And I might even run the whole thing instead of walk half of it like we did this year.
