SYTYCD Week 1 & 2

So You Think You Can Dance is great this season! I think there is more of a competition going on this time around instead of just a few stand out dancers.

Week 1

My favorite couple so far would have to be Joshua and Katee. I loved their dance to “No Air”.

I was sad they kicked off Ravyen and Jamie in week 1. I really liked them too. I loved Tabitha and Napoleon’s choreography for their dance to “American Boy”. They also did “No Air”, so I guess I just like their Hip Hop style.

Week 2

Joshua and Katee win my vote again. I love Tyce Diorio’s Broadway choreography. It’s so quirky.

I don’t care that Marquis’ solo was all tricks – he did them so well! I was a little shocked he was kicked off because he was one of the best dancers. He has incredible control of his body.

Good riddance to Susie…. blah.

Fada’s Day

We went to visit Papa EK (my Dad) at his fire station for Father’s Day. Or as they as in Hawaii – Fada’s Day. Lila and Chloe had a blast playing in the fire truck and ambulance. Thanks for letting us share the day with you Dad!

Crazy Birds

What a weird place for a bird to lay her eggs!

Sent from my sweet, pink Blackberry Pearl

The Quest

No more excuses….I’ve pretty much been pregnant for the last 2 years and “post-baby” for 5 years. It’s time to get in shape. But I need some motivation! Any one out there willing to get on a program together? Any one have some great ideas to get me going?? I NEED HELP!

Kangaroo Zoo – It’s Really A Zoo….

On Friday I met some girlfriends at Kangaroo Zoo to let our kids have some fun. It was a little crazy!! Chloe kept running away and it is hard to keep track of her while taking care of Max. I totally took advantage of being able to play without a care while I was a kid!!

Thanks Kristi – I stole this picture from your blog!! Most of our kids are still playing on the toys. And yes, Max is hiding under my blanket! :)

Dinner with the Girls

Last week I went to dinner with the Blaser/Bonney girls while Grandma Bonney and Angie were in town. Here are some fun pictures from our girls night out!


Today we went to a surprise birthday party Jay Larsen. Boy was it a surprise – his birthday isn’t until September!! But Shyla wanted to throw a party for him while his brother Pete is here on leave from Iraq. It was so fun! We surprised Jay at Ruby Tuesday’s in Park City for lunch and then went up to the Olympic Park. Ryan, Marc and Lila rode the Alpine Slide together and Lila had a blast! She loved going fast. While they were riding, Mom, Joe, Helen, Chloe, Warrik, Violet and I played on the playground equipment next to the ski lift. It was also fun to watch the skiers who were practicing on the jumps.

It was fun to see Pete. He’s been gone for a while. On the way up to Park City, we had a patriotic moment when “God Bless the USA” came on the radio. It got me thinking about all the sacrifices our soldiers are making for us. I wanted to tell Pete thank you for all he is doing, but I was afraid I might get emotional, so I didn’t say anything. :( I’ll have to write him a letter…

Thanks to Shyla for planning a fun day!

Flashback Friday – The Spider Dance

When my Mama and Papa (my Mom’s Mom and Dad) would come to visit when I was little, I used to anxiously wait for the second Papa would say “Why don’t you warm up your fingers Cammi?” I loved playing the piano for him. I would practice and practice for weeks before they came because I wanted to make sure all of my songs were perfect. When I was 8, I learned a song called “The Spider Dance”. After I told Papa the name of the song and started to play, Papa began to dance around! I thought it was hilarious. It quickly became a tradition. I would always play the Spider Dance for him, no matter how much more advanced I got. And he would always dance.

The Wards

My friend Reathanak sent me pictures of her kids today and I had to post it because they are so beautiful!! This is SaVonni, LJ, and JoJo Ward. Aren’t they the cutest kids you’ve ever seen??

Ra – I can’t believe we are mommies of 3! Who would have thought??
