Big D's Fundraiser

My Step-dad has been diagnosed with a rare auto immunse systemic disease that is attacking his left eye causing him to go legally blind. He is currently fighting to keep from losing that eye and to keep it from infecting the other. There is currently only one other person in Nevada who has it. He is traveling to UCLA on September 11 and it is out of network therefor he has to cover all charges. He is having a fundraiser on September 9 there is also a facebook page where you can donate.

Yea Yea I never Post! Pirate Power.....

22 days and counting and we are moving to Boulder City!! To say I am excited is a huge OVERstatement(?)!!  Boulder City, home of the Eagles. The worst sportsmanship I have ever played against in my 22+ years of being an athlete! They actually bullied, egged and made terrible signs about kids who moved from their town to ours in high school. Yes it was 13 years ago, but those terrible kids who did that are now the parents to this generation. I have already heard so much talk about people who remember me and Hate me ( like I care) because Victoria has lived there for 2 1/2 years, but I am worried about the bad influence spoiled kids will have on mine......  But I fully intend to wear my MVHS shirts to every single game my kids have in the next 18 years!!!!! Including the ones I coach :)

July 4th

We spent the 4th in Boulder City where mom and Vic live. They have a great veteran's memorial park with an awesome splash pad!!

Big D got up early and saved us all spots to put up our shades and cook some yummy food. He has a huge XXXL camping chair that the kids can all sit in together and that VyVy uses as a crib.

They had a cool opening ceremony with 6 skydivers doing tricks with colored smoke and one carried an American flag.

Te kids had a blast and loved the fireworks and live music, can't wait for the next one!!

Baseball season is finally over and there is one more day until summer break starts and our vacation season starts!! Chaiz starts kindergarten this year so we are packing extra fun into this summer!! Starting this weekend with our annual trip to Big Bear, CA with the whole fam (mom, vic and Mess's oldest daughter) We all have cabins right next door to each other and we hike, fish, kayak, bbq and go to our favorite Alpine Slide and mini golf! First week of July it's back to Tracy, CA and a Giants game or two! We always stay a night or two at the Golden Nugget in July cause the boys LOVE the pool there ( it has a slide that goes through a shark tank). August is off to Laughlin for our anniversary and some fun jet skiing and water taxi, that for some odd reason the boys think is the coolest thing ever!! Not to mention probably more camping and Lake Meade trips then I can count! Man I'm tired just typing all the things we will be doing!!! At 10 last night a late August getaway to Mesquite was planned!
