So I spent some time creating a "possible names" list for bambino #3. We're getting closer and we haven't spent much time on it yet. I sent my cooky husband these names and he had some very serious comments...ha! I've highlighted his responses in green, then my replies in orange. For anyone who knows Jeff, these will be funny. Heck, you may not even have to know him to think they're funny. The one's with asterisks are names he actually I guess he took part of this "assignment" seriously!

Feel free to vote for your favorites...we'll take them into consideration!

*Ethan--strong, firm
Elijah--the Lord is my God
Levi--Joined to, united. Can I call him 501 for short? Did I ask for smartass comments?
Noah--rest, comfort
Reuben--behold a son. This makes me want to eat him. Reminds me a heavy set mexican dude. Me too.
Sam--to hear. Sam Elliot Johnson. LOVE it! I will have to grow my moustache again. Please don't
Samuel--asked of God.
*Seth--Appointed one.
Tobey or Toby--God is good
Zachary--remembered by God.
Cole--Greek, victory of the people. I never really could buy Nicole Kidman as a shrink. Oh, I get it...Days of Thunder
Nicholas--Greek, victory of the people
Reed or Reid--a reed or red haired- How do you do half an asterisk? U r strange
Brady- One of a bunch Haha
*Clay-finer than loam..maybe we should name him Sandy Loam Johnson…that’s cowboyish and reminds me of Delmar Dingus
Ian--God is gracious
Ben--son of my right hand
Lane- Like an Avenue but with trees. A bit frosty. You’ve ruined a lot of good names here.
Heath-Lighter than Skor…I like both of those candy bars. Okay, so we’re not Norwegian or Gaelic, but I’m trying to be multi-cultural
*Reese-What's with the candy names? Are you hungry? Uh, maybe. (This is a family grandmother's maiden name.)
Blake-I knew named this. He was a retard. Actually his name was Chris and his last name was blake. His dad was an Eastern airlines pilot. On the West coast. Go figure. ????
Nate- Nate Paul. Short for Nathan no response comes to mind
*Ty- 2 of the last 3 names are may cousin Gary's kids names. So? They’re cowboys, aren’t they? It’s not like you're real close to them; aren't they like 3rd cousins?!
*Nick or Nicholas- You must like this one you listed it twice. Guess so!

Well I guess you successfully narrowed down that list…

Labor Day Weekend in Seattle

For more pics, go to my webalbum. We had some plans to go to McCall for the weekend, but things fell through so we made a quick weekend trip to visit one of the Pacific Northwest locations we've been wanting to see since we moved to Idaho. Seattle is a fun town with lots to do. We stayed downtown (thanks to Priceline!) and were able to walk or take the bus or monorail everywhere. We visited the Aquarium, Pike Place Market (Caleb loved the "fish toss"), Pacific Science Center and we took a one-hour bay cruise. We were all worn out but it was well worth it. It's a beautiful area! It was fun to be in a bigger city again...there are Starbucks on every block (LITERALLY!) so Jeff was thrilled. We went to a great Vietnamese restaurant and bought a tasty picnic lunch at the Italian Deli in Pike's. Sadly, the seafood restaurant we tried was a tourist trap we suspect, and it was very disappointing. I've had better seafood in Idaho! We're looking forward to heading there again! For anyone visiting Seattle, or any other larger city, I definitely suggest looking into buying the Citypass or GoCard. If you're doing the typical "tourist" stuff, you can easily save 25-40% off admissions. Look into it!
And if you're wondering what the deal is with the pigs in the pictures, go to . The kids had fun finding the pigs on the city streets...we didn't get a picture of the "Pirate Pig" (Caleb's favorite) but we liked this "Salmon Pig" a lot!
