The Amazing Race....Family Edition

For those of you who don't know my wife is a bit of a reality show fanatic. She loves her Survivor, Apprentice (Martha Stewart or Donald Trump), Big Brother but most of all The Amazing Race. This season's edition is for families of four.

So Paula has decided that this will be a family affair in our house as well. All five of us (sorry Meredith, you're not eligible) have chosen two families and the person with the winning team wins $25 (totally contributed by Mom and Dad) and second place gets $5. We plan to tape and watch on Wednesdays as a family since Tuesday's is our nutso day. Paula is also planning to put up a map of the world to track the teams. (you know your mom and dad are teachers when.....)

Here are the teams:

Martha: Gaghan and Weaver
Shea: Linz and Godlewski
Sam: Rogers and Schroeder
Paula: Aiello and Paola
Dean: Branson and Black

Wish us luck.

Rudy entertains

I taped a bit of our Canada Day Celebrations with the Buchanans. I thought I had lost the tape but found it the other day. The tape is largely about my dog Rudy barking and trying to chase a cat. It's 92 seconds.

'Canada Day and My Stupid Dog'

By the way, you'll notice I changed the design because the other one was not displayed archived posts. I hope this one is more stable.

Paula's mom's birthday is the same day as their wedding anniversary. I'm not even sure if this was a birthday present or anniversary present. Anyway, we got Larry and Rosa in the car Friday afternoon and headed north to Saskatoon. Rosa didn't know where we were going. We picked up Terry and Brenda and drove to the Barn Playhouse.

We had a great meal outside and then watched "All Things Bright and Beautiful" in the barn. I think we surprised mom and had a great evening. We continue to build culture. More pictures here.
