And the Oscar goes to...

Two weeks of Fun in Utah!

I'd like to thank my parents for making it all possible, by giving us a place to stay, the airplane tickets to come home, the trip to Salt Lake, camping by the river, the Owlz game + hot chocolate, non-stop partying, and giving me some much needed time to do some things all on my very own.

I'd also like to thank Elaine and Gordon for coming to visit, enduring three days in a car with a three year old, playing with Paul along the way, and being so nice about it all.

Big thanks to Jan and Ralph for making our trip to the zoo possible, lunch up the canyon with peacocks, dinners, lunches, blueberry pancakes, and letting Paul play with Chico guy.

Paul would like to thank Sam, Liz, Jocelyn, Afton, Gabe, Logan, Brent, and Julian for being the best friends and cousins a guy could visit!

He would also like to thank grandma nae for rock-a-bye time, papa for lawn mower time, grandma Jan for the train ride, papa Ralph for playing outside with him and all of them for new clothes and loving the stuffing out of him.

And although Lynn and Sylvia made an attempt on my life with the tube of death during filming, I do appreciate the sacrifice of their time, talents, and boat trailer tires to take us to Deer Creek for the afternoon. (I hope someone has some footage of that, because apparently I do not.)

My thanks to my dear friends and family who I enjoyed spending time with immensely! (Apparently too much fun was being had to properly document with pictures, but I love you anyway!)

And as the music begins to play as my cue to wrap up, thanks to Jamie who had a delicious and fun lunch party for us; thanks to Michelle, who dropped what she was doing to help me out;thanks to the security guy at the airport that let me go through the ropes so I didn't have to wait in line; and the people sitting next to me on the plane that didn't overreact when Paul did.
