They were at Huntington Beach and the epicenter was in Chino Hills(about 25 miles)
Hayden called...they were on the beach and he said all of a sudden he felt really dizzy (dahh the ground was swaying LOL) and almost felt like he was going to pass out until he realized what was going on...and then Coach Thompson said.."look that wall is moving" then he realized they were in an earthquake. They are all fine..it was just really weird he said. He was shocked that it was all over the news and that it was as big as it was. Said it made him feel special! LOL
Glad they are all right, hope the rest of the population fares the same.

just heard on the news that there was a 5.4 earthquake in California. Hayden is on Huntington beach at football camp! YIKES!! cant get through to anyone on cell phones..i guess the lines are jammed..they are saying no damage or injuries reported at this time so I'm sure he is fine...just a nervous mom freaking out! LOL

Several years ago, on a bitter cold, snowy morning (no this is not a bedtime story) Hayden and his friend Ethan had a snow day...so they decided to go out and shovel some drive ways to make some money. They went to a neighborhood over in Show Low and shoveled this one older ladies drive way..after they were done she invited them in and fed them...they thought it was strange that she had pictures of David spade in her house so they inquired and she told them he was her son.....so they got a big kick out of the fact that they met David Spade's mom. Cut to today....apparently David was In town visiting his dear ol mom a few weeks ago. And shortly after his return to Hollywood he was on the Jay Leno show...where he told about his adventures visiting his mom in Show Low Arizona...
Watch the clip..its pretty funny....
(click here to watch the video, then click on the July 17th episode)
When it cues up after the commercial, you can go directly to chapter 3 (where David comes in)

To my first baby girl!
I woke up this morning and the first thought in my mind was where i was and what i was doing 22 years ago at this very time. I could actually remember very well how that day went. what a wonderful experience it was to have our first baby and what a joy she was and is...so beautiful!
I can not believe its been 22 years!! They grow up way WAY to fast...
Brittnee, we hope you have a wonderful day and we wish we could be there with you!
Always Remember who you and where you came from.... and live every day to its fullest!
And above all remember that we love you....forever....always.....no matter what!

We don't know for sure but we have been told that Quade has an autism spectrum disorder. And i came upon this today and wanted to share it..this could be a HUGE breakthrough for many...maybe for us? but it makes perfect sense to me....we will have to wait and see where it goes.
i cant get the video to upload so you will have to go to the link
so click this ..

Their long long long wait to have a baby is finally here!

and Birthday cake!
Today we celebrated Brittnee's birthday.... her birthday is actually next Monday (the 14th) but we figured since she was here we better do it now! so we had one of her favorite meals for dinner and then we had presents and cheesecake...her other favorite! It was REALLY nice having her home with us this weekend and we really enjoyed meeting her friend James...and for those of you who are wondering...(including YOU Brittnee) yes we like him...he is a very nice guy and he treats my daughter very good which is VERY important to us. So yes, he passed inspection and the many interrogations he has received (way to go Debbie and Wendy! LOL) and the Quade test!!!!

After the Parade we had a "big" BBQ at our house....did not have alot of people come but it was fun anyways (thanks Hunts and Brimhalls for showing up) I dont have any of pictures from this but you can check the Brimhalls blog...they might have some to post.
After that we got ready for the FIREWORKS!!! oh boy was this Quade's greatest day ever!
Quade has been saying "fireworks" for about two weeks now...and we always say..."Friday" so then he started saying "Friday" (actually, the first time he GOT IT and said....FIREWORKS-FRIDAY was in the middle of sacrament meeting LOL its hard to be happy about something when we are supposed to be quiet...) so when he woke up on the 4th i said to him..."what day is it Quade" and he just sorta looked at me funny....and i said...
'ITS FRIDAY" and then he said...."FIREWORKS!!!" yeah!!!!
So we set off for the fireworks....we have been going to the same spot for the fireworks every year and this was no exception...we always meet a large group of friends there and sit together and that group seems to be growing bigger each year....this year it was Us and our kids and their friends, The Hoyes and Their extended family and friends, the Watsons, and the Hatches and their extended family. It was a long fireworks show...about 45 minutes which was really fun!
On Saturday night, Brittnee and James took Taylor and Noah over to the Snowflake Rodeo, fireworks and dance..they really enjoyed that alot..I'm sure Brittnee will post more about that on her blog.

Sawyer. Noah, Brittnee and Taylor
Shaylar....."hummm whats in those buckets anyways??"
Bright and Early on the 4th we got up and got ready to go to the Parade...i love our little town Parade..some may think its hokey but i love it...I love seeing people we know in the parade, love the hokey floats, love the not so great karaoke singers and love the school bands who need alittle more practice...LOL ...its just alot of fun and a great tradition we have. I would feel lost if we did not go to the parade on the 4th. So we set out and met some friends there as Hayden had filled up over 300 water balloons and he and his friends were just itchin' to make this very dry parade alittle wetter! So we got all set up and were ready to go. The mayor even stopped by and told us that he finally convinced the powers that be that next year this WILL be a wet parade! YEAHHHHH That will be fun....
Anyway...we really had alot of fun. Well at least until "the grumpy old man incident"(getting on my soapbox).....Hey man! Its just alittle water!! water never hurt anyone! and OH MY GOSH!! it DRYS, rather quickly too when its 85 degrees outside! And you wife really would have alot more fun if she watched the parade instead of staring at us!!!! sorry...I'm alittle bitter LOL...can you tell!!!! (getting off my soapbox now) oh well, we had alot of fun and alot of laughs and made alot of hot people happy too! so its all good!!
