There is a stadium in Brazil in which the midfield line lies on the Equator, making each team defend one hemisphere.

Joke of the Week

As an attorney in a major New Mexico law firm, I have many colleagues who work long hours. However, the reputation of one of my partners’ workaholic ways even extended beyond the office. He not only had to leave work early one day because of a medical problem, but was also told by his doctor to stay home until the end of the week. My colleague grudgingly agreed to comply. In the middle of the week, our receptionist received a call for him. She announced that the partner was out of the office until Friday.
"Good," the caller said. "That’s all I wanted to know." It was my partner’s doctor.

Carnival 2009!

Mountain Shadows carnival time is here again! I can't believe it has been a year already. Luckily the weather cooperated and the kids were able to have a nice time. Here is Tim takin' on the rock climbing wall.
Here is the fearsome dinosaur obstacle course! (Tim is REALLY more thrilled than he looks!) Here is Topher inside the Dino course. By this time, Tim was off with his friends. He is getting so grown up!
It is hard to see him, but he just came down the slide underneath the Rex. He had a blast on this one! This is the big "Jaws" slide, the tallest one there. Toph is loving it!
No carnival would be complete without a romp in the batman jump. Topher was doing flips in this one, giving him mom more gray hair!!
After batman, we decided to go and play some games. Topher just won at the tic-tac-toe game. He won a twirly toy of some sort! Here is the ring toss where he won some freaky green vampire teeth!
Here is an action shot of him shooting hoops. My camera sucks (or maybe I suck, or both!) so it is a little blurry. I think I know what to ask Santa for this year! This is the ride he liked the most. It is a pirate obstacle course. Probably because it had the shortest line, the kid working it actually knew what he was doing. He must have gone on this a hundred times. He would jump down the slide and everytime I thought "This is it, we're going to the ER!" I love this carnival, it is always a blast. Unfortunately the boys trip fell on this weekend too, so Tim and Toph had to choose between the two. Maybe it will be better weather next year and they will choose the boys trip. I am sure Terry will have a relaxing weekend! I don't know what I will do with myself if they go to the boys trip and I don't have the carnival! (Oh, wait, I am sure I can find something!)

Looks fun! It was probably nice that it wasn't so hot. But I would much rather the heat then all this rain!!!

You're a good mom - we've boycotted the carnival the past couple of years...we're too cheap. Looks like fun, though - maybe next year!
