Way to go Jake!

Jake will probably kill me for posting this, but I'm so proud of him that I had to share this article with he world. On the APX website they highlight top performers throughout the company and below is what they had to say about Jake! The past two weeks they have been driving 1.5 hours one way each day to Syracuse. Needless to say I miss my husband! He has been working so hard this summer. Keep it up babe!!!

Jacob Dahl and the Rochester Office Reach New Heights

Provo, UT - Last week was a huge one for the Rochester office. Not only did they break all previous records but they improved from their previous week by over 30 installs. 5 reps had their best week, and 5 reps had 10+ installs, but the true man behind the curtain has to be Jacob Dahl.Dahl has been consistent week after week, including two weeks of 18, and one of 19. Few reps can say they’ve installed 19 in a week, which represents just over 3 a day. After last week, however, 19 is old news – the old bar. In a huge feat of Apx greatness, Dahl put in 27 installs during week 8.Last week brings him to 141 on the summer, a stellar total even if he were to bagel every day the rest of the summer. Bagels don’t seem to be in the cards for Dahl, however, who the stats seem to project as one of those rare 300+ reps.

Lake Ontario

We brought the girls to Lake Ontario State Park and can't wait to go back! It was a such a beautiful day. Kaylee loved playing in the sand and getting her shorts wet in the water. We were shocked thhat she actually enjoyed sitting in it and touching it and getting in on her hands. Usually she likes the idea of it but gets nervous by the water or the messy sand. Riley liked it too. She wanted to put it in her mouth, but there were tons of tiny little shells and lake debris so it wasn't such a good idea. She put her feet in the water too and seemed to like it. Next time we'll put them in swimsuits and let them go to town.

We were pleasantly surprised to find a town fair going on right off the beach. There was music in the park, lots of food like you'd expect- funnel cakes, popcorn, polish sausage... all sorts of fancy fair food. We did not partake. Once we got closer to the fair we were remided of how disgusting those places could be. We held the girls tight looking for rides Kaylee was big enough to go on. Her favorite was the carousel. And our lucky day, there was an elk for her to ride! I will post soon about the obession in our home over yelk, binni and pincess deah's. Needlees to say, Kaylee love the carousel and would have rode it a hundred times. We ended the day with a few minutes at the park with slide and swings. The girls fell asleep as soon as we got home. Who knows how much they will remember, but me and Jake had a lot of fun being with them.
