A few pics past due...

Here she is, the brand new 1978 beauty. Come on by for the official tour.

She's a heart breaker

I have to give a shout out to Johnny for coming through Saturday with tickets to the Jazz game. Good time, great tickets...atta' boy Joe-Nathan.

Lou Pics

Seriously, even for

Londyn and her favorite new sunglasses.

I call it my Cinco de Mustache canvas. Brynn refers to it as her arch nemesis. Meet the beard.

Now Available!

You listen to music and I listen to music. You may not like the music I listen to, but then again, you might. I might like the music you listen to, but I will never know what music you listen to because you are selfish. I am not, not anymore...

This is why I have released 2 albums: Assorted Compilation of Music that I Seem to Like this Month: VOLUME I and Assorted Compilation: VOLUME II.

"Tell 'em how to get one, Chuck!" It's easy, just ask Steve or Brynn if you can get your hands on one.

Sample of artists: Get Set Go, The Decemberists, Deathcab for Cutie, and many more...

Londyn's Sleep Talking

Anyone who knows Londyn, knows that she doesn't leave home with out "Bear." Because the Bizzle is Londyn's best friend, Steve decided to make up a good night song for him. It goes a little something like this:

Listen up Bear it's time to go to bed
Listen up Bear it's time to rest your head
Listen up Bear just close your eyes
and dream of Hot Dogs and Butterflies

Londyn Loves this song, and she requests that we sing it every night before bed. When she wakes up in the morning we ask her "What did you dream about last night?" And without fail, she replies "hot dogs." Londyn had a nightmare last night, so I let her get into bed with Steve and I around 4am. At about 7:30 this morning, Londyn rolls over in her sleep and says "Stop it! That's my hot dog." I guess she really does dream about hot dogs.

Well, today was the day. And without further adieu...I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of the Perkins' family...

Meet our new baby...

And meet his junk...

That's right, it's a BOY! As soon as the lady said it was a boy, both Brynn and I asked, "Are you sure?" Sure enough (after a little coaxing) there it was, his little junk telling us, I'm all boy. Brynn and I are so excited. The baby looked healthy and strong, which is always the biggest relief. And the doctor kept the due date right about Sept. 2, the exact same due date as Brynn's sister. Londyn is excited too. Finally someone for her to beat up on...(besides all of your kids).

That's it for us.

On the Road Again...

The Steve & Brynn Show spent this last weekend in St. George, Utah. The to-do list consisted of the pool, golf, eating and sleeping. Then again, that pretty much sums up 90% of the Perkins' family vacations. Brynn's sister and her husband just built a vacation home in St. George and (in our opinion) it was a fantastic investment. One Brynn and I plan to take advantage of...often.

Londyn had 2 sets of cousins in St. George. Berkley, Boston and Macy were down visiting too.

Londyn, Sawyer & Easton on the way to the park

Even got in a little hike at Snow Canyon

...then we come home to snow...F WORD!

Utah Man Am I

I have come to sick realization that I am a Utahan through and through. (Spell check told me it should be AN Utahan, but that sounds too weird…) Anyways, after making fun of countless people for saying “I love the moun-tins”, “I am from Hurr-i-cun, Utah”, “carn on the cob” and a personal favorite, "the ruff of the house", I am no better…and a 22-month-old child taught me this lesson.

Brynn and I just moved into a new place and we had some neighbors drop by to introduce themselves. We had a nice conversation and after they left I said to Brynn, “ Why didn’t you invite them in?” Suddenly Londyn perked up and screamed, “ I want a vitamin!” (You see, Londyn has a Flintstones vitamin every morning and loves it. But she knows she only gets a vitamin in the morning, so I was curious as to what made her want a vitamin at that particular moment)…then it hit me. I did not say, “invite them in” like a normal human person would have, I said, “invite ‘em in…or as my daughter heard, “in vitamin”, just as a/an Utahan would say. My daughter could not distinguish the difference between her Father saying, invite them in and in vitamin. What a sad, sad day. It’s not that I am ashamed of my heritage. I love Utah. I just love the mountains, not the moun-tins. You win mighty Utah. You have chewed me up and spit me out...and now I smell of green Jell-O and brine shrimp.

…An Utahan...The only reason that probably sounds weird to me is because I am from Utah.

Lou's Week

After 1 year, 10 months and 9 days the wait is over. Londyn was finally able to wear her very first hair barrette. Brynn (Londyn’s mother) was quoted as saying, “I just can’t believe it. I have wanted this for so long…I’m just so happy!” Congratulations Londyn and mother! Today is your day.

Last weekend Brynn was at a dance competition all Saturday, so Lou and I went up to the Sandy Aquarium. In her words, she saw lots of “fsshh” (fish), “welly-fsshh” (jelly fish), “Ray” (Sting Rays), and even a “sharrrrk…scurry….RAAHHH”. The aquarium was just Londyn's size. She loved it.

Has anyone seen Londyn??!! I am missing my little girl. She is about 2 feet tall, thin, blonde hair and wearing a small, inconspicuous hair bow. Really, the hair bow is quite subtle. You might miss it if you are not looking hard enough. Please, someone help…

Brynn makes fun of me and my garden. But Londyn is on board. Mommy's just a hater.
Be clean, go green.
