Transcript of Our Life
April 2010 We stayed on the strip, at The Imperial Palace.
The view from our window was incredible! Neither of us had ever been to the city before, so we did a lot of sightseeing.
We loved the fountains at the Bellagio, and the restaurants were phenomenal! Our hotel was also home to the world's largest private car collection.
We spent a wonderful afternoon admiring the 300+ classic cars. This inspired us to rent a car of our own for a day.
Sadly, the Viper and Gallardo were out of our budget. We ended up with this beautiful Mini Cooper S. We put the top down and cruised all the way
to the California border and back. It was a nice reprieve from the intensity of the city. We'd done a lot of shopping, and seen an exquisite dance performance,
so Abby let me pick our last activity; I decided on the shooting range. Myrtle Beach, SC
Family Vacation 2010 We drove down to Myrtle Beach in June for Harper's annual family vacation. It was Abby's first time there, so everyone enjoyed showing her around. One of our first stops was Ripley's Aquarium Some of our Favorite Television Programs Out of Practice

He's an artist, and he and Harper have
worked together on a few projects.
Here's some of his recent work. Photo Drawing This crazy seahorse was interesting! Harper got his picture taken with a velociraptor. We did a lot of things and shared some
family traditions, but we made time to
just relax at the edge of the Atlantic. Thanks, Grammy!

Across the Universe Sports Neither of us are traditional sport-lovers, but we both have things we enjoy. Abby started dancing at age 2, and though she's no longer on a team, she still loves to dance, and watch dance competitions whenever they're televised. She also enjoys watching hockey, thanks to her brother Nick, an avid player on a travel team. We both watch soccer from time to time, both World Cup and English Premiership League. Harper played soccer sporadically throughout his life, and it remains the only regular sport he enjoys. He's recently started watching auto racing, mostly Formula One and British Touring Car Championships. Our favorite sport to watch together is Mixed Martial Arts. We started following the WEC in 2008, and as the league was absorbed by the UFC, we'll continue to watch it there. We enjoy betting against each other and cheering for our favorite fighters. Ben Henderson Ben Henderson Scotty Jorgensen Urijah Faber Urijah Faber At the Roeper School, Harper learned to love a strange little game called Six Square, and he will always describe it as his favorite sport to play, watch or talk about endlessly.

Abby prefers the truly old-school, particularly the E-Type Jaguar and the famous Aston-Martin DB5 "Bond Car." At least there's one thing we can always agree on; we love Volkswagens!
