I am in the process of photographing some of our finished products and samples. Here is one such photograph.
Here is my youngest at Sugarhouse Park. He loved feeding the ducks but liked this super fast slide even more. I love his concentration as he is attempting a successful landing.
No not the slang for the word either (ie awesome). This little guy is sick or ill. After days of having a fever we had to take him to his Dr. Thankfully nothing serious.
A new trampoline equals a new photo op. Expect lots more photos to be made with use of the trampoline. Now if only I could keep it safe and not have the enclosure visible. Hum…
Today while at the Riverwoods in Orem we came across the Provo Beach Resort. It is a cool place with lots to do. We unfortunately did not participate in any of the activities as we were unprepared to do so, however we had fun watching others. This photo was one of my favorites. I like the kid on the left and how his foot is sticking straight out of the water. The kids on the left that were apparently just learning had some great wipe outs.
It was a wonderful and heartfelt Easter Sunday today. We thankfully had the opportunity to make a few photographs of our kids after church service. The arguing and fighting doesn’t seem so bad when they are so loving and kind to each other too. I am very blessed to have such amazing kids, wife and family.
Here are a few more photos I made of them today. Enjoy!
Some friends told us about and met up with us at this cool new park nearby. Here is one photo of my Shawn climbing the rock wall. I love the nice weather for going out and doing stuff like this.
Kids grow up so fast! Have fun with them NOW!
I can’t believe my youngest turned 5 today. Wow time flies! Happy Birthday Linkin!
While in the process of moving a few things to the new house before “moving day” I found my boys up in their new room playing on the iPod. While it isn’t unusual to see them playing the iPod I thought it was interesting that out of the entire, mostly empty, house they felt most comfortable in their new room. I love my kids!
Tonight we had the pleasure of being visited by this cute little spirit. Isn’t he adorable?!
I love the innocence and purity of a child’s smile.
Here you can see the joy on their faces as they watch a thrilling part of a movie.
Family night tonight and we played this new version of the game “Guess Who?” with these mix and match faces. Quite entertaining to see everyones faces come together.
Tonight we had a family get together and birthday party for Shawn. It was a great time and so funny to watch the kids play Twister for the first time.
Tonight after dinner in Highland we had the chance to play with our niece, Lydia. Lots of noises and craziness from us and we got this adorable expression from her. Love it!
After getting behind last year and then finally giving up on my 365 project I have decided to try again. So here is day 1 of 365. I am more determined than ever to make it the entire year. Feedback is always appreciated and helps to get me to the next day, week, month. So if you have something to say please leave a comment. Thanks.
Today’s photo is of my wife, Becky Jeide. She is amazing and since we just had our 11 year anniversary I wanted her photo to kick things off this year.
Today we had the pleasure of attending a demonstration of what our 2nd grader has been learning in the self defense class RAD Kids. It was cool to see all the kids do so well and to empower them to defend themselves if a situation justifies it. Great Job guys!

…and my sons favorite. “Dad, it looks like i’m flying!”
While at our booth at the Eagle Mountain Street Fair my son got some balloon blowing practice in. He had so much fun seeing how far the balloon could propel itself after he blew it up. Ah the little joys in life huh?
Ok so not really war paint but we did go to Dippidee in American Fork for their Spring Break activities. Face paining, pin the cherry on the cupcake, and coloring fun. It was fun for the kids and yummy for all!
My son’s latest and last visit (I hope) after his Adnoids were removed and tubes put in. The news was that he is now healthy and good! Finally
Once again my wife was willing to model for me as I tested some new outdoor lighting scenarios and I came up with this which I am very happy with.
Todays the day that my wife and I have been dreading for the past couple of weeks. Our 4 year old had to go into surgery today in order to have his Adenoids removed and ear tubes put in. The Dr. and everyone we talked to about this surgery said that it isn’t a big deal and that the recovery is quick, like a day or two.
Well since I am writing this a little more than a week after his surgery I can tell you that for whatever reason this was not quick, not pain free, and it was a big deal for our little guy. As soon as he woke up from his surgery he was hysterical and very mad. He came to us thrashing about and trying to climb out of the bed that they were transporting him in. This biting, kicking, spitting, hitting, snotting, and everything else he could think of doing to us lasted over an hour. The nurse and anesthesiologist then told us that he shouldn’t be upset for that long and so they tried to give him something to ease the pain or to at least calm him down. When they tried putting this medicine into his i.v. they found out that it wasn’t working and after another 15 minutes or so gave up and removed the i.v. Thankfully by this point he was calming down and was more manageable. Then came the waking up every night screaming in pain as his Tylenol wore off. He was so upset that it sometimes takes almost an hour to get him to take more. After seeing his Dr. again and him putting him on antibiotics for the infection that had developed they said it would make him feel better within 24hrs. Well it has been 3 days since then and he still wakes up in the middle of the night hysterical. It is crazy, but I have gotten to the point where I set an alarm and go and wake him up and have him take his medicine so it doesn’t have a chance to wear completely off. Better to deal with a half asleep kid and it taking a minute to give him more medicine than a fully awake and hysterical kid that it at least 30 minutes to give him his medicine. When will it end, I wish I knew. Poor guy is so sweet most of the time so this has been really, really hard to see him in such pain.
