The Pie Pizza

So, Hali recommended the Pie, a pizza place in Salt Lake and hence the whole family went. Basically, we went for the 23"er of cheesy goodness. For some reason we thought we needed appetizers as well, not a good idea. We barely dented the pizza with 8 of us.
(Notice how Derek has the exact same look in each picture)

The Daily Kona

So, to bring simple joy into our lives, Derek, Hannah, and I have created the website called....

As many of you know, we our proud parents of The Kona, find her hilarious, and often comparable to 2 year old children. When our friends have a funny story about their kids we often have a Kona story that is similar. (I will yet write a book called "The Parity of Toddlers and Dogs")
The website is still a work in progress, but the main is The Kona.
The Nerd part, the monthly book, is by me and Derek. (***Nerd alert, I really LIKE the library, and I have a book journal, so if you're looking for a good book. . .Nerd Harmony likes talking books.)

Hannah writes the captions, and Hannah is FUNNY. You should also read her blog, she has a knack for writing.

Now, we realize many of you will think we are weird, it's okay, we love The Kona. But still, Kona is funny.

So, we update the Daily Kona, Almost daily.
