While I was out

As I lounged in Laguna Hills, Nic was making himself busy by:

Hauling Mike and Emily's Landcruiser to Cedar City and then taking an overnight trip to Vegas for SEMA.

Babysitting Korbin so our neighbor could pick up his wife and second child from the hospital. How adorable are they? Apparently Moxie kept trying to lick his face so Korbin had to tackle her. Usually kids just run or cry. Or both.

I don't think I've mentioned that we bought a boat. Well, my parents funded the project and Nic is supplying the labor. He gutted the whole thing over the weekend, which is so much more awesome because I thought I was going to have to help and it ended up getting done without me.

It may not look like much now, but after Nic is done with it it is going to be AMAZING. Major bonus: On our boat, dogs are totally allowed. I will call it the Puppy Barge.

He didn't send me a picture, but Nic also installed a stair lift for my Grandpa Brinkerhoff, who is suffering from Parkinson's and also recovering from a twice-broken hip. He spent his entire Saturday in Bountiful making it so my grandpa can get in and out of the house safely. Nic is by far one of the very best people I know. Seriously.

I can't believe all the things Nic can do. I have a guy that works for me in forestry that can do anything as well. I'm totally jealous of guys like them, I'm lucky if I can take my car to Jiffy Lube without getting in an accident.

this backs up my last comment on your other post (you know, the "please come back to california now" comments) just think how much he would get done if you came and stayed with me for 10 days every 3 weeks, like shared custody only when you get home you have a new boat everytime?!
