Last Friday I went to the Facebook Page and asked you for the strangest name you've ever heard parents give their child. You did not disappoint. I think we're going to have to do more of these brain storms together. They make for a hysterical Friday. And by the way, if you haven't already, please hop on and LIKE the Facebook Page.

In other news, the Ironman is this weekend. More on that in a couple of days. Start praying and sending your good luck our way, please. I also heard it's super good luck to buy one of our very attractive t-shirts so I would consider doing that if you haven't already (shoot me an email if you have questions about sizes/shipping/etc.).
