Finally, someone scientifically proves that requiring the males in the household to lower the toilet seat does not minimize “the total cost of toilet seat operations per household.” I have been arguing this point with my wife since the day we moved in together. Now, I have game theory analysis on my side.

Aliciana and I took the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island. Next we drove up the 305 to Poulsbo and then down the 3 to the 16 and into Tacoma. Click here for a pretty map.
We ate dinner at the Spaghetti Factory in Tacoma, but I wouldn’t recommend it because the service sucked. Go to the Spaghetti Factory in Seattle instead.
Three friends from Bakersfield, Jialan, Connie, and Rosalva, happened to be in Las Vegas for the weekend so we met up with them for lunch. Later that evening, at dinner, AJ decided to pose for some pictures.
Some pictures of my new brother and sister. AJ and Michaela, the dogs, and grandma. It is hard to believe that I have a 1 year old brother and a 4 month old sister.
More Ladd Family 2.0 pictures. The cute 6 year old wearing pink in the photos is Juanita, a foster child staying with my parents for a while. Along with Aliciana and me, my parents house contained Juanita, AJ, Michaela, Grandma, my mom, my dad, my sister Courtney, the 2 dogs, and Molly the cat. It was quite a zoo.
The Blue Angels were practicing over Mercer Island in preparation for Sea Fair. They are very loud but impressive.
