So...Hot. Must...Swim...

I guess everyone needs a dip in the Burroughs' pool every once in a while.

45 Years!

Here is to the best set of parents a guy could ever ask for. You are an inspiration to Jenn and I, and I hope we are as fortunate enough in life as you two are. We love you both very much.

UPDATE: Sister is Moving Home...awesome.

We got the call a few days ago. My sister's ex is moving out of their apartment in (beautiful) Hemet on the 15th of August and my sister will be back into the Burroughs' Manor as soon as she can. She has been here for the past month and a half or so and I can’t begin to tell you how difficult life is with her here. Don’t get me wrong, I love my sister and I wish her the best, but she brings something to the table that I can’t explain. She has cerebral palsy, O.C.D. (obsessive compulsive disorder), and the demeanor of a teenager in some aspects. I see the effects this has mainly on my Mom. She now has to deal with Dad and all that comes with a special needs 33/16 year old. It is just unnecessary emotions and stress that is already there and adds on top of the pressure of a family that is dealing with a father that is fighting cancer. When she is here you can literally feel the blood-pressure, and stress level climb...I guess the good thing coming out of this is that it is really forcing Jen and I to save so we can buy a home.

I think it is time to step up the game and help Mom out with Dad more.
