We recently added a new member to our twoladiesandnobaby family. Hugh is a 3 month old, Parakeet with a whole lotta spunk. His middle name is for Hall of Fame, Utah Jazz coach, Jerry Sloan. 

A few fun facts about Hughie: 

His favorite TV show is Glee. Not for the gay stuff (not that there's anything wrong with that), but for the singing. He also gets quite vocal during a good basketball game. The squeaking shoes really get him riled up. 

He loves to be sung to, mostly songs about birds or anything telling him everything's going to be okay. 

He's not a big fan of sudden movements or loud noises, but he sure likes a good belly and foot rub.

 You'll see his sister, Gertrude "Gerty" in the background. She belongs to our pals Jen & Lindsay

We had to house sit Rrrosa while my parents were out of town. Rrrosa wanted to eat Hughie for dinner

Welcome to the family Hugh, I think you're really going to like it here.

Only in America

On Sunday, on our way to church, Becca and I pull up to a stoplight, look over to the car beside us and see two Asian women in US Army garb and... Cowboy hats.


We were so happy. God Bless America.
