Lesson Learned

This past weekend we went to a "super hero" birthday party. Carter had a lot of fun. Instead for little goody bag to take home my friend made all the kids capes. The letter "C" is on the back of the cape. In this video, Carter is wearing the cape from the party. He likes to dance to the music of the toy he is holding. We taught him to push the button on it, because we got tried of doing it.

Today, Carter and I were washing the car. If you call playing in the bucket of water helping. It was actually me, but he just liked to think he was helping. I had a feeling that I should keep the bucket close to me so I could watch him. While I was washing the tire, I look up and watched Carter lose his balance and fall into the bucket. His head never touched the water, good thing. Now, if I had not been there he could have fallen in the rest of the way, because he could not get out.

I wondered how little kids can drown in buckets. I always thought that the bucket would just tip over, but it doesn't. So the lesson is watch your kids around water. (All the Arizonans, I feel like Dave Munsey on Fox Ten News, saying watch your kids around water. Hehe)

Egg Hunting

Watch out kids, Carter is ready to find those Easter eggs. We got invited to do an Easter egg hunt yesterday. This was Carter's first time. He did really well. We had to help him find the eggs but he loved getting them and putting them into the basket.

He even got eggs that some little kids missed. He even found some eggs that were hidden well.

We had to lift him up to some of the eggs.

Carter was one of the littlest kids there and he still was able to keep up with them.
He had so much fun finding the eggs and especially putting them in the basket. Afterward, he got to play with the kids in the backyard. He was the smallest, but still enjoyed the company of other children. We love the Easter season. Happy Easter.

The Phone Call

This is Dave, I know I don't write much anymore but I wanted to share with you something extremely exiting and I couldn't just have Lesley do it.

I got a phone call today from the CIA. The man introduced himself as director of HR Mr. Shepard, and that he got a tip from an anonymous source about me. He then asked me a series of questions like: are you a citizen of the U.S.? I said yes. He continued, have you ever been convicted of a felon? Have you ever been in the military? Have you ever been involved with an anti-terrorist organization? I answered no to all of those, so he went on ... What is your highest level of education? I told him I graduated collage as a mechanical engineer and the conversation went on about various life experiences I've had, work, and other hobbies and interests.

In the end he told me that they are looking for someone to move to Washington DC to start a position as an engineer specializing in quantum mechanics and physics. Basically that means that I will be finding ways to track down information by using the study of the behavior of matter and energy at the molecular, atomic, nuclear and even smaller microscopic levels. Or even more basically, I'll be looking at reactions and spying throughout the world through a lazer, or building the devices that do that.

He explained that they are looking for someone young that is planning on long term commitment possibly until retirement. They want to start training from the ground up, and with someone that is young so that they can utilize the technology of the future. Not someone that is stuck in their ways and lie to themselves and the organization by saying "can't teach a dog new tricks."

I told them I would have to think about it, but then he added this ... The pay, aside from benefits, will start at over $100k. How much over? Well he didn't say, but he did say that it won't be one of those gimmicks that say over 100 and there's 101.

So, I'm kinda freaking out! Washington DC here we come! I'm sure we'll be able to figure in some kind of travel arrangement to visit friends and family or have them come visit us!

This would be the coolest thing that has ever happened to me except for if/when I become a god, no joke ... but this is a joke cause it's april fools. It's a farce. It isn't true. This has all been a made up story for you to indulge on and for me to dream about.

Happy first everyone.
