Meet the Andersons

We are desperate for friends. For some reason, even though we think we are the greatest people ever, we don't seem to make friends easily. We must be socially inept or something. Since we are now living in Ogden, we thought that we would join a gang and that way we would have friends all the time, not to mention the protection we would get from our hommies. Lucky for us, we have met some really great people here so far. One of the couples we now do a little hangin' with are the Andersons. Aaron is a first year resident with Jesse and there seems to be a little more than friendship there. Ann is lovely and is the great mother of Daxton, their three year old son. Finn digs Dax. "Dax" is one of Finn's favorite words. He says it everytime we go outside or get in the car. The Andersons probably think they drew the short straw when for some reason we, the Spencers, clung to them. They ended up moving a couple blocks from us and we are sure that any day now, we will see a "For Sale" sign on their front lawn. Until then, party on dudes. Here are a few pictures of this truly remarkable family. Pray for them.

The Utah State Fair was a huge success as usual.

The ladies and their boys. Finn was going for those earrings.

Pooper-scooper.


Enjoying some corn-on-the-cob at the fair.

Finn's favorite thing at the fair was the pig-pen. They were more disgusting than ever. One of the little porkers peed on the face of the other little porker and the second porker didn't even move. We have sworn off bacon.



Finn trying to get a look at the tiger show.



Melts your heart...



Looking forward a few years...



Lookin' for the ladies at the fair. Carnie ladies are the hottest.



Aww....


This was after our ride at the Lagoon. It was amazing that the kids made it without any tears. Party animals.

If you look closely, you may be even to see Lin's head.

Another portrait of America's favorite family, just before the fireworks on July 4th. The LaRose family is that smiling bunch behind them. Ben is also a first year resident with Jesse. More on them later perhaps...

Dax looking all innocent but you know his three year old brain is churning with mischief.

You're blog is so sweet. I chuckled at the manly photo of the guys sharing some love.

Man, it's a good those Andersons entered the picture before you joined a gang.....those things are for life ya know. Glad to see you're branching out and making friends. Jesse, was it awkward to hold that dude's hand? It was pretty awkward and painful to look at. Don't ever do that again. I'll tell ya what though, if the Manley's were fortunate enough to live in Ogden there would be some fierce competition with the Anderson's for the "Spencer's favorite friends" award. It would get ugly.

Later dudes,
Jake Manley
