Our 1st Ultrasound

Posted: October 17, 2007 by jgrantmarshall in baby, family

Here it is!  Our baby’s first ultrasound.  Today we were able to see the beating heart that was said to look like a “twinkling star”… um, sorta, I guess.  We were also told that we are closer to 9.5 weeks than 10.5 weeks (like we were told last time).

Good bye, Wrangler

I just sold my ol’ faithful Wrangler this evening to a 16 year old (with his parents).  It appears that it is going to an enthusiastic new owner, so it makes saying good bye a little easier.  Another vehicle sold using

Pumpkin Patch

Posted: October 15, 2007 by jgrantmarshall in family, holiday

As you can see in my Flickr picture gallery, we visited the Lonepine Pumpkin Patch today.  With all of the people that were there today, I am sure that they make at least 75% of their business for the entire year in the weeks leading up to Halloween.  It was crazy busy!  We stood in line to take the tractor ride out to the patch for at least 45 minutes.  Beside that and RUDE Californians cutting in line and pushing my mom out of the way to get to the front (probably just mad because he was wearing a Cal hat and the Beavers beat ’em yesterday (hahaha)), the rest of the experience was positive.  It is fun to go pick out the perfect pumpkin, especially with the weather as nice as it was today.  It was probably about 65 degrees today and I may have even gotten a sunburn on the top of my head.  We picked two pumpkins that weighed a total of 57 pounds.  Maybe next year Grant will be ready for the Corn Maze (or is it a Maize Maze?)…

Strikers Win 2-0

Grant and his team mates won today’s soccer match 2-0 against the Black Bears.  The teams were fairly evenly matched.  Grant played “Goalie Guard” for most of the game and had a number of great boots to protect a sure goal.

Soccer Season Has Started

Grant’s soccer season has started for Fall 2007! His team name is the Strikers and I think their color is light blue (there’s a game in a couple of hours and I would presume that we’ll find out sometime before then).

I created a webpage with the Strikers schedule and the URL is:

I hope to see you at a game!
