Replay at Bernie's

Friday night was the Improvables' annual Valentine's Day performance, aka the Battle of the Sexes. I was joined on stage by Brianne, Bryan, Charlotte, Erica, Keenan, Lorin, and Willis. We had the rare opportunity to perform on the CenterPoint main stage for this show.

One of the highlights of the night was this video, which captures Brianne, along with "dolls" Charlotte and Erica, in "Replay at Bernie's."

Basketball Time with Kylee

My 16-year-old niece Kylee made it on the Layton High School sophomore girls basketball team this year. The team has been doing very well, having lost only two games all season.

I finally made it to a game Friday afternoon, which was also Valentine's Day. The Lancers beat the Northridge Knights by a score of 56-26. Though Kylee is not a starter, she got about five minutes' playing time, shooting 2-2 and scoring four points. She also added a couple of steals and generally played very well and aggressively.


After the game, I snapped the above photo of her alongside her dad, my brother Mike. She wears #5, which was also Mike's number when he played sports.

Jake wasn't having any of it.

February Family Birthday Party 2014

Sunday's bi-monthly family dinner also doubled as our family birthday party for late January/February, for which we recognized Dave, Jeff, and Jessica. Accordingly, we sang "Happy Birthday to You" . . .


. . . and ate delicious cake, not to mention another spirited game of everyone's favorite, "Pass the Parcel."


Grandma Plowman (along with everyone else) also enjoyed spending time with seven-month-old Christian, feeding him strained carrots during dinner. Like you do.
