I'm embarassed to be a Lakers Fan

But not as embarrassed to be a Nuggets, Spurs, or Jazz fan. How in the world did they lose to LA? Now that's embarrassing.

The Fat Lady Hasn't Sung Yet

There is still hope. Not much with the series headed back to Boston Tuesday, but it's something. Now Thursday's loos burns a little more. We should be up 3-2. Nobody has ever come back from a 3-1 series deficit in the NBA Finals. But hey, there's a first time for everything. As Journey would say - "Don't Stop Believin'." Let's go, Lakers!!

No more Miley

Well that experiment didn't last long. The kids were disappointed, but we decided to sell Miley. Unfortunately, Jamie was so eager to get rid of her that we sold her only for what we bought her for. But, she sold in less than a day. Brandon took it especially hard. She was a cute dog. I hope her new owners are good to her.

It's a series!

Whew! That was nerve racking. The Lakers held on 87-81 to take game 3 and cut the series deficit to 2-1. It wasn't pretty, but I'll take it. Props to Sasha Vujacic. He was HUGE off the bench. I still think the Lakers need to utilize the Fisher, Kobe, Vujacic, Radmanovic, Gasol lineup more. It spreads the floor out, making it harder for the Celtics to double up on Kobe when he drives to the hoop. Game 4 is Thursday. Let's even things up!

Meet Miley

This is our new dog Miley (I wanted to call her "Stain," but everyone vetoed that). She is a Yorkie-Chihuahua mix. As you can see, she's not too big, which will make it a whole lot easier for me to accidentally squish her. She's a cute dog, and if she doesn't pan out, we can probably sell her for about three times what we bought her for. Cha-Ching! You can probably tell that I'm not as excited about the whole dog thing as Jamie and the kids, but since I'm the one doing the blog, I can say what I want.

Crooked necks

No, Kaylin and Kylie don't need to see a chiropractor. For whatever reason, they just like to tilt their head to the left when they have pictures taken of them. It must be a girl thing. Probably from the Jones side of the family :)

Father & Sons outing

Our ward had its Father & Sons outing this past weekend at Vernon Reservoir. As the crow flies, it's probably 20 miles or so from where we live, but you have to drive an hour to get there. It was a nice camping spot. Unfortunately, it rained all Friday night. A lot of people got soaked and took off early in the morning so breakfast was canceled. We were okay in our tent, so we took our time and left around 9 a.m., which was later than almost everyone else. The ward will be hosting a Father & Sons breakfast this coming Saturday to make up for it.

Brandon loved the fire - just like every other kid his age. Steven and I hiked up a small hill next to the campground, but Brandon wanted to stay and burn things. We all had a great time. I just wish Grandpa Moffitt would have been there to tell the story of Mazuki.

Special thanks to Grandpa Jones for letting us borrow his camping gear.

Flash from the Past

Zeke emailed this picture from 1986. Jamie thought it was funny. I was the first baseman and he was the second baseman. I'm clearly reaching over the other player to catch the pop fly. In my defense, the pop fly was about half way between us and we both ran over to get it - he just got there first. It's not like I ran all the way over to second base to steal it from him. I did catch it, and we won the championship (as the caption indicates). That was the 2nd of three consecutive championship teams I was on.

It's only Game 1.

Disappointed - yes. The Celtics looked very beatable, but we couldn't hit a shot in the 4th quarter. As bad as we played in the second half, and as poorly as Kobe shot the ball, we were within striking distance until about 1:40 left. In 1985, 1988, and 2001, the Lakers lost game 1 of the Finals and still won the series. So we lost one on the road tonight. A win on Sunday will give us all the momentum going back to LA. Keep your heads up fellas.

The other day we decided to put some sponge rollers in Kylie's hair. I thought it turned out really cute! She just loves to have her hair done (as you can tell!) She is such a sweet and fun girl! I love having her in my life!!

Two favorite vacations:
The first time we went to Utah as a family when I was 9, it was the first time I went to Temple square and I also loved going on trips to go see my Grandparents in Nevada growing up. One time I remember me and my brother went and stayed with my grandma and grandpa for a week or two when I was about 13 or 14. I didn't want to sleep by myself in the family room and my brother wouldn't sleep in there either because he wanted to watch the TV, so we ended up sharing the pull-out bed. He was not happy about it, but still I think he felt bad for me!!

Two Favorite drinks:
Chocolate milk and kool-aide

Yeah, I'm done! That was hard to do with all the kids around!!
