My Brother, Kimball

It's hard to describe my brother Kimball to people. When I got married he was living in South America and my attempt to describe him to my wife wasn't very good (I would find out later). The best way to know Kimball is to experience him. So here he is. Sorry for it being sideways.

This Little Piggy Went "Weeee, weeee, weeeee" All The Way Home

One of the many reasons that I love Rachel is that she always finds solutions to problems. While others would be embarrassed, lack creativity, or just give up, she will make it work. 

We recently sold our van (cough*to Insurance Auto Auction after it broke down*ahem) and now use nothing but bikes, buses and boots. We are actually enjoying it and have been planning it for a while.

Farewell Kia. You got us across the country and then left us there.
Well, tonight I had our weekly ward youth activity at the church building and decided to take Hannah with me. However, Rachel wanted to go grocery shopping and take Heber and Olive. That meant that she would need the buggy and since the baby seat is difficult to detach from her bike we wondered how to make it work. That's when her problem solving skills kicked in.

Different day, but same set up for Rachel
She remembered the little baby carrier we had (for infants) and suggested I put Hannah in it. Though feeling a little silly, I did it...for the family's sake. But Hannah loved it!! She was flapping her arms like a bird, yelling "weeeeee" like the last little piggy and just talking my ear off. I just pedaled with a bug cheesy smile on my face as people we rode by stared. It was a success to say the least. And Rachel made pulling 2 kids and picking up a weeks worth of groceries from 3 stores look easy.

This little piggy went "Weeee, weeee, weeeee" all the way home.
