We KNOW we can dance! :)

Brandon's dad Rick is a S-W-E-E-T heart!! He got Rach and I tickets to go see the So You Think You Can Dance tour in Salt Lake! We had a blast!

Don't worry.. Its just KENT being AMAZING. Sigh...

I don't know why I love this crazy dance so much. Its partly because Allison is my hero. Also.. I just really enjoy crazy when its done well. :)

this.. THIS is crazy. hehe. I love this girl!

Long Live Warhammer!

So... I've become addicted to painting Warhammer models with Brandon, Rachel, Chase, and Tim. It's what we do basically every time we are together. Ha. I have no idea how to play the game but Brandon and Chase have been playing it their whole lives. Geeks. But I guess I joined the Geek Squad when I started painting their models. I can't help it.. It's fun!

Happy Halloween!

So maybe Avatar wasn't the most original costume.. but we were Avatars long before that movie came out. :)


Last weekend we went on a double with our cuz, Tori, and her boy, Brett. He is basically a member of the family now. We love him. :) We went out to eat at California Pizza Kitchen which was DELICIOUS. I'd never been and I was not disappointed. That Jamaican Jerk Chicken Pizza was pretty darn amazing. Then we got to see Odyssey Dance Theatre's Thriller show. It was soo awesome! The makeup and costuming was really good and there were some excellent (and creepy) pieces. Some of those dancer's technical ability is just unreal. Whoa. We had a lot of fun.

The Fam at Sundance

After the last session of conference the McCloskey Clan decided to take a drive through the mountains to see the changing fall colors. So beautiful!
This is on the bridge where Brandon proposed. Awwww.....

Fun Sized Friends

Cute Lil' Ashley and her boy Jeremy, recently returned from his mission in Chile!
Illusion? We tried.

Flashback: Prague

AH! I just noticed I failed to document my (jcloskey2) mission in Prague, Czech Republic in July. I was sent there on a top secret mission with eight other very talented agents. What a successful mission it was! That is not to say it wasn't a rough start.

After 14 hours in an airplane and another hour bus ride to Prague, we discovered our luggage was missing. After filling out some paperwork we decided to make the best of it and go exploring. We walked the cobblestone streets and browsed the quaint shops all along the way. We got hungry and stopped to eat at an authentic czech restaurant where we all ordered something we were told was delicious. To the contrary, we all felt mildly sick to our stomachs afterward and vowed never to eat that sticky orange sauce again. I tried to use my credit card to buy the meal and discovered it was frozen. Yes, I did call the bank before I left to tell them I would be out of the country but somehow, the message hadn't gotten through. So in addi…

A Blur of Happiness!

Well. A moment to breathe. School (we are undercover you see) started over three weeks ago and it's been a little crazy. Brando18 and jcloskey2 have been EXTREMELY busy with various perilous missions requiring excessive amounts of mental and physical energy (especially in jcloskey2's case). Through it all, they've held on close and will not be pulled apart by the momentum of this blur of life! School is going splendidly. Both agents are enjoying their classes and are quite passionate about their majors.

Brando18 has switched from information systems to computer engineering (or computer science) and is not loving chemistry but quite likes his major classes. Jcloskey2 is loving her new technique teacher, Jiamin, who kicks her trash every class. I know of no better way for an agent to stay in shape! She is loving the hours she is in the studio every day, rehearsing for the DE concert in November.

Work is work (who knew agents had to work while really working for the government …

Day 43: Flashback.

Brando18 and JCloskey2 were sworn into the agency and made partners on May 1st, 2010. Since then their bond has grown closer and they have been on many exciting missions that have taken them to uncharted lands and foreign cultures. They are ever ready for future missions, however dangerous and challenging they may be. Here are some photos of the aforementioned events.
