One of Patrick's favorite things is for Uncle Rick to play "On the Road Again" and he got it for his birthday. Notice his dancing skills


Patrick had a great time on his birthday.   We had dinner at Golden Corral (his favorite) then we had a birthday party at Chad and JoAnna's house.   We sang happy birthday and best of all Uncle Rick showed up to play him "On the Road Again".  Every time he comes Patrick requests it.  Thanks for all your comments. Patrick loved them.

Patrick has a big family

Dinner at his favorite place, Golden Corral, with his friend DeVon

All the family was there.

Then a huge German chocolate birthday cake

Wonder what he wished for

IT'S PATRICK'S BIRTHDAY.   He loves birthdays. If you have time leave him a note on this page. He will read them over and over.  No one enjoys a birthday more than he does.  This is his nephew Isaac with him.

Dallin Paul loves a good party

Looking at his new very small camcorder.  He was very excited.  He got a lot of nice presents from the family

Dad and Dallin Paul

Dallin Paul figured out dad's iPhone camera.

One Sweet Ride

We got to ride in my dad's cousin's Buick Riviera at the Cache Valley Cruise-In parade.   I think we were the hit of the parade.   We had a lot of fun. Thanks Katy.

Happy Father's Day

Patrick and Dallin Paul made sure their dad had a great Father's Day.  We got him an Idaho fishing license which he was very excited about.


Dallin Paul visited the grave of Dodger for the first time. It was on a hot summer day.  He sat there for about 30 minutes or more alone and talking to him.   It was pretty sweet.

Patrick and Dallin Paul crooning for you live and unplugged.  It's just hard to find good music like this today..

We had a sad week at our home this week.  Our dog Dodger died.  He was 7 or 8 years old and had cancer.  It came on very sudden and he died quickly and unexpectedly.  He was loved by all.  Our sister Cathrine bought him but he lived at home.   Dallin Paul and Dodger were very close; they even slept together.   Paul was with him and comforting him until he died.  Patrick liked Dodger as well but Dodger and Paul had a very special relationship.   

Every night Paul slept with him.  Paul is using his Dad's C-pap in this picture.

He could be a very silly dog.

He was always a loyal and trusted friend. Rest in peace dear friend.

Dallin Paul and his dad had so much fun up to Walden.  Paul loves to paint and he painted this entire picnic table and is going to do the bench next.  We had a great time.

A good workout with dad at the gym

At Mooches
So we workout for about one and a half hours and then we go to Mooches (Nyla's) for treats.  It works..

This post is a couple of years old but it is one of my favorite Dallin Paul stories so I am posting it again:

So Sunday night (yes SUNDAY) everyone else was playing board games. Dad invited Patrick and Dallin Paul to go to Mooches, our favorite c-store for some treats. Just as we were leaving at 6:25 Mom said, "You can't go now, the Home Teachers are coming at 6:30". Home teachers come by each month to visit members of the LDS church. Dad decided we would all run on to the home teachers just as they were coming so he made the decision to stay. He told Patrick and Paul that the home teachers were coming and we would go to Mooches after they left. Dallin Paul took things into his own hands and posted this notice on our front door. Unfortunately it didn't stop them from coming.

Here is a video of Patrick.  He is a spokesman for Best Buddies and has some great buddies through the program.

Patrick was supposed to have state cross-county skiing games in Ogden Valley on Saturday but there was no snow so we played a bit over the weekend.   It was cloudy but over 60 degrees today. 
We went up Logan Canyon to look at the river.  This is by second dam and Patrick is on the bridge.

They got to play with nieces and nephews; this is Nora and Emi in pretty Easter colored dresses.

Patrick up on the bridge. What a handsome guy.

Dallin Paul near the river.  He didn't go to far from the car because he was playing Angry Birds on his dad's cell phone. He is pretty good at it.       

Wendy's always cooks a good meal.

YARD WORK 3/2012
Today we helped Dad rake all the pine needles off of the front lawn. We have two big pine trees with long needles and we filled the whole truck with fallen needles and cones.  We had fun though.  We listened to music on the Bose/iPod and played with Dodger.  After it was all unloaded we went to Wendy's.  We were going to go swimming but it was such a nice day outside we just kept working.
