Happy (very) belated birthdays Alaina & Ryan!!

I never got around to sending anything for Laney and Ryan's b-days (or Christmas for that matter- haha, Tristan and Matt I promise you'll get your gifts some day!), but here's some cute pics of them you can look at!

they really love each other

this is a few years old of Laney.

this is actually a really funny story... Ryan kept trying to attack the cat

Vero Beach

As you probably know, Dad loves the three of us more than any of the rest of you, and therefore, he took Scott, Andrew, and myself down to Florida last weekend for an awesome trip. We got to visit Holman Stadium, and the entire Dodgers spring training complex. We got up close and personal with many of the star players; Dad even got to work one on one with Brad Penny to help perfect his curve ball. We stayed in Melbourne, Cocoa Beach, and Satellite Beach. Along with seeing the Dodgers play, we also got to visit the beach, watch an Astros-Nats game, eat fried frog legs, and see an alligator! We really had a good time, thanks again Dad!! We owe you big time.

up close with the Boys in Blue

sorry Shellie, I tried to deter them...

supporting the cause

well, since no one else in my immediate family seems to have caught on to blogging, i guess i'll continue to carry the weight of our nielson family blog by publishing most of the posts. some people had asked about blogs of extended family members, i don't know how to permanently put a link on the side bar, but here they are if you're interested: (cousin Seth's-- one of my personal favs) (Brad & Lupe) (cousin Karen & her husband) (cousin Scott & his family) (okay they're not family, but Robin (formerly Salas) just had her baby, if you wanna see some photos of the little guy)

Most of the David and Brad Hills are represented here. Not sure if Uncle Al & Aunt Kate, or Aunt Dianne are into the blogging thing, but let me know if they have pages! I don't want to leave anyone out due to ignorance. maybe seeing how good some of our family blogs are, you'll be inspired to post something! in the mean time, i put some old random photos up, beware some of them are a few years old! some of the grandkids look a lot younger in these, and some of the uncles (not mentioning any names- Andrew) look a few lbs lighter. haha. love, b

i absolutely love this pic of Christian at Lake Tahoe, this is from a couple summers ago, i went to visit them when i was living in Elko
