check out the link below for 4 cool video clips behind the scenes of the upcoming movie "Twilight" (Due in theatres 12-12-08).
Not loving the casting, but oh well, thats why I don't get paid the big bucks I guess! I'll keep the Edward that's in my mind, he's much better :)

When we got home, I had about 3 minutes to get ready before we were going to go to the kids' clinic. As we were getting ready, Cassia said she didn't want to go. I kinda got excited that I would be able to ride my motorcycle to the stadium, but as we were leaving, Cassia said she wanted to go. It was good to spend time with her, so I shouldn't be too disappointed.
The kids had a really good time tackling the inflatable dummies. The players are really good with all the kids. As for the scrimmage, I was really impressed with the backups, but really disappointed with how they handled the event. It was only about an hour long and we got to see zero starters. If that's the way they will continue to do it, I don't think I'll waste a Saturday. I'll say this much: JJ DiLuigi is going to be a great player for BYU; now and in the future.
This is where they tackled the inflatable dummy. Hunter went at it with everything he had. Cassia, on the other hand, was pretty timid.
Kellen Fowler is showing Hunter how to backpedal.
I had to include this last picture of Hunter (he got a hold of the camera without my knowledge). Some of the best pictures come when kids get a hold of the camera and pretend to know what they are doing!

I was going to try to post once a day, but I don't think I will get around to posting on the weekends. There is just too much going on on the weekends, especially now with the summer just around the corner. The yard is calling and I have to answer. So I will post two today and then come back on Monday.
Hunter and I have a lot planned this weekend. We have a party to attend tonight. But this is not any normal party; this is a Halo party. Greg is hosting it at his house and we'll have 4 projectors and about 20 people there to play. I think Hunter will absolutely love it. Then, after getting home at about 2 a.m., we'll wake up around 11 and head down to BYU's spring game. I am more excited for the spring game than I am for the Halo party. I hope Hunter enjoys it because there is a kids clinic before the game. The players come out and instruct the kids on how to properly pass, run and kick. They have tires to run through and inflatable dummies to tackle. It is really fun to watch.
Hunter is in first grade now and he is enjoying it, thankfully. Like any 7-year-old, he enjoys recess more than anything else, but he enjoys reading and math as well, as long as he can keep his attention on his work. He enjoys playing with friends and watching The History channel. He's a funny kid. He is just starting up hockey in May (again) and this year he will be traveling to other cities to play other teams. I think he will really like that. And more than anything else, he likes his video games. I like that he is getting the hand-eye coordination excersize, but he probably plays too much. He does get a lot of physical activity in though.
Cassia recently had her 5th birthday and is so looking forward to going to Kindergarten. Joy nor I can hardly believe we have our second going into elementary school. It was like that conference talk we heard last weekend (don't remember who said it), but the advice was to take time to watch what the kids do. I really don't want to have these kids grow up yet and the way to stop that is to spend as much time as I can with them and remember every little thing about them. I have, and am going to continue, to enjoy every day with my kids. I think I haven't really realized how much time passes when I am doing my own selfish things and how much I have missed with my kids already. Cassia is defintely going to be one of those kids that I want to remember especially with her being the only girl. I want her to be a "Daddy's Little Girl."

His vocabulary seems to have tripled since we don't allow the binkie anymore. Thankfully he hasn't noticed until it is time to go to bed. He can now say two words very clearly, while saying more words where you know what he is saying. He has seemed to have diminished the sign language, which is good. We would much rather have him speaking instead of signing.
