So last week as Karl was driving home from work I get a call saying that he is stranded on Redwood Road and that his little Hyundai had died. Karl is thinking that its the timing belt that went out on it. Since we were planning on getting a new car for him next Spring (his old car didn't have any air conditioning, which doesn't make a good car with kids in the heat of summer), we decided it wasn't worth putting any more money into this car. So we began the process of looking for a new car. Karl's parents let us borrow his brother's car (Thanks Kelly) who is currently on a mission until we could figure out what we were doing. After about a week and a half of searching Karl decided on a 2009 Nissan Versa. It's a great little car and we hope it will give us MANY years of use.

So I have to say those Magic Erasers are the BEST invention EVER! They work for EVERYTHING. I've often used them to clean soap scum and hard water stains off of my tubs but when Karl picked up a dresser we purchased off of KSL for the baby's room and it had some big stains on the top, I thought what the hey, lets see if this will work. Well it did. There's still a little bit of stain but you can hardly tell and it looks 99% better then what it did before. You can hardly see the stain if at all. If I had known it was going to work so well I would have done a before and after shot.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KARL! So today Karl turns 29 years old. For his birthday he received an ITouch, some dry flies, jerky and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (his favorite candy). Yesterday I surprised him at his office with balloons and donuts to share. This morning I took him to IHOP for breakfast and then this evening we will be celebrating with his family having dinner while watching the BYU football game.

So yesterday I experience my first official dog park. My brother Glenn invited us to meet up with him at the dog park in Sandy. I have to say the place was pretty cool. Gus got to join us and ended up making lots of new friends. He had a grand old time. It was a cute little setting with lots of rocks, benches and other areas to sit and watch your dog play. I'm looking forward to our next visit. Thanks for the invite Glenn.
