i think danielle appreciated it more since she posed more often and annie is catholic and may not enjoy the joseph smith sphinx head...
annie even helped me make my own maraca out of a powerade container and spare change i was entertained the rest of the night dancing with my own shaker...
(no photos you should have been there)
and holly and brett showed us how to get down
i was having such a good time in the subway i didn't want to worry pete with the new knowledge of the disintegrating straps and because it began to sprinkle we had to boggie to be safe for a little bit....
it was honestly a sad day. i have a lot of great memories in these chacos i bought 5 years ago before going to australia. for a while i even resisted the switch from my sturdy old tevas. i have yet to throw them away and there will be a memorial blog for them to come.

can you believe my bootie fit through that hole? well it did with a lil spray butter which i always pack on any hike or canyoneering adventure that may have a tight squeeze.
so i've been to the subway in the past with my friend, brian, but had never came from the top down
so there were about 3 or 4 rappels and a few little scrambles down but it was all so beautiful and who doesn't love swimming through lil' slot canyons... water in the desert is amazing and is quite possible heaven on earth in my book
i was reminded of such a simple happy life in living so close to nature and working for an organization that stresses the conservation of where so many find peace and serenity
it was nice just to spend less than 24 hours with an old friend that knows the old and new you and is still a true friend
it's always refreshing to know your friend is happy, at peace with his life, and excited for his future with someone that is a great match for him

we didn't find a thing on our search but as we got up to our porch we saw a likely suspect walking across the street from the grocery store. we spied on him as he passed with his cigarette in hand. then out of nowhere he started to run so we bolted out and watched him run down the street to an apartment complex down past our street. we decided it wasn't enough evidence to call the cops but we've got our eyes out. i felt safer with a partner and i think we may buy guns as our next step to keep our neighborhood safe. our neighbors don't even realize the protection and expertise they're getting

we've decided that with the 12 foot brick area that was found that we'll need to watch a scary movie and squish in as many as we can...(comfortably) under our house.
we've already decided to hand pick those that will be attending and preference to attend will be those that are scared easily
strangely, first on the list is holly, who screamed after walking in the front door and got caught running past her closet ... and she stated she wasn't scared after watching the grudge 2

whether it's with a partner or the kindness of words to a child, friend or family... i loved it
