This weekend I experienced something totally new. A Tae Kwon Do tournament. If you've never been then you don't know what you've been missing. We were there for like 18 hours and Dad did stuff for about 3 minutes. But I entertained his wishes and was good for the whole day. Then yesterday Daddy and I went to play our weekly game of disc golf at the course near our house. Guess What? There was a tournament going on. How crazy is that. Well, since Dad and I couldn't find any way to feign the two of us being a team of four men we went on an adventure to another course. We found a course a little ways away and started playing it. It was a little ridiculous. Every single hole was longer than 500 feet. Some had hole positions that were almost 1000 feet away. Needless to say we didn't complete all 27 holes. We only played the first 10. It took a long time and Daddy and I were getting pretty warm, so we headed on home to Mommy, who had slept through everything. She slept for like 3 hours. I suppose it's good for her. Sometimes I like to sleep all day too and not at night. We watched a couple movies this weekend. I think I fell asleep through both of them. A couple times. Mommy and Daddy both liked Night at the Museum, they also thought The Good Shepard was overtouted, and long. Well that was my weekend. Until next week.

Today I came home from work to this view from our deck. How cool is that. Now all of you who helped us move up to our third level apartment can see how we are reaping the benefits of your labor. For those of you who don't know and are curious this is facing SW.
Yippee! Erin made cookies. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
It was casual Friday and I figured, "Hey if my co-workers can wear dingy tennis shoes surely I can wear my beloved Chacos." Nope. Apparently wearing sandals is a stomp-on-toes hazard or something like that.

Addilyn here ready to drop some science on ya. First off did you know that a low pressure system and high pressure system can coalesce and make for a really nasty game of disc golf. Dad and I played, if you can call it that, yesterday. But man was it windy. Many of his throws went far awry. I, like him, blame solely the wind for his poor play. Meanwhile Mom was at home chillin. Apparently she likes to have time away from me on occasion. I haven't the slightest clue why she would want that Oooh I'm hungry FEED ME FEED ME FEED ME.
Where was I.... oh yes. Earlier this weekend my dad left Mom and I early in the morning. He went to Topeka to attend a Tae Kwon Do class. Since he doesn't have a school here he's been kinda trying to practice in the house. Let me tell you, that doesn't always bode well for the house, us, or him. He has a tournament this weekend in Topeka. I'm excited to go and see what that is all about. Dad's pretty excited. (Mom told me that it's pretty boring but that I should act excited) My grandparents might be coming too. That's super exciting because I've only seen Grandpa Butts (hehe) once.
After Dad got home we visted the Crown Center. It's like a miniture mall in downtown KC. It was kinda fun. We ate at a cheesy little restautrant that delivers your food via train. I found it to be a rather clever set up. The food was alright. On an unrelated note I'm growing quite quickly and this weekend Mom and Dad thought I should try out the size 1 diapers. Well I set them straight by leaking almost every time. They are a little loose yet.
So that was my weekend. Be sure to check out my most recent photos, I must say some of them are quite adorable.

Since there is no Hastings store near us there really
is no reason for us to go look for movies. I'm not a
big fan of Blockbuster. Anyways these are our first two
picks, guess who picked which. Also we posted our queue to the right to slake your curiosity. If you have any suggestions let us know.

Sunday was almost as eventful. We set out to go to the Covenant Church in nearby Liberty. Well we never found it. So we then set out to go to the Covenant Church in Kearney which started half an hour later. We found it, late. So no church for us. We later found the Liberty church. Apparently I had pulled up the wrong map online. So we went home and fell asleep for a while. Then we went to play the disc golf course that we can see from our deck. It's a beautiful course that winds through a park. It is very "altitude changey." Lots of hills and such. Our calves are tired today. Oh and we pushed Addilyn in the stroller which was fun. At home we found out that the PGA tournament was cancelled due to 45mph winds and instead of showing the concurrent LPGA tournament which was nearing a dramatic close, CBS showed last years PGA tournament at the same course. That was a little lame. Anyways it was fun.
Monday after work we decided to check out the mall that is near our house. It's really quite frightening. I'm sure in it's day it was nice, but only about half of the stores were filled and the place was just desolate. It was kinda creepy.

My opinion on most topics is that new thought should be grounded in, and therefore should not contradict, classical thought. I have found this to be true in Physics, Math and Theology. It should naturally follow, then, that my implications were based on the classical view of fascism which is based off the Fascist Manifesto published on June 6, 1919. If you recall what you were undoubtedly taught at some point in your education you will remember that the policies of labor and social issues as laid out by the manifesto were as follows.
The quick enactment of a law of the State that sanctions an eight-hour workday for all workers;
A minimum wage;
The participation of workers' representatives in the functions of industry commissions;
Reorganisation of the railways and the transport sector;
Revision of the draft law on invalidity insurance;
Reduction of the retirement age from 65 to 55.
Since Siggins Co. has an eight hour work day, I am guaranteed a minimum salary, we are commissioned by societal companies, we reorganize transportation systems, we have disability insurance and I'm sure some day I'll retire, I thought that the term fascist was appropriate. I make no allusions to any neo-nazi or communist acts on the part of Siggins.
Having said that I would like to clarify a thing or two.
1. I have no idea if what I grabbed off of Wikipedia is accurate.
2. I wish I could wear my Chacos at work.
3. I like my job and the company I work for.
4. I don't like wearing shoes.
5. Fascism doesn't need two s's.

So, we are moved in now. Phase one is nearly complete; we just have to ship some stuff to my parents to store. I'll put a link to the right with pictures of our new apartment. It's pretty swanky. Also there are more pictures of Addilyn now. Well not right now but that's what I plan on doing right after this.
