{ As of late... }


I haven't posted about our little family in awhile, so I figured now was as good a time as any to get caught up. Last Sunday I convinced Andrew to play hookie and skip out on the last 2 hours of church for a little drive up the canyon. Some might say that's a sin, but I justified by stating it was quality family time. Plus, let's be honest. 3 hours of church is ridiculous, especially when you have babies. It makes nap time impossible, which makes the whole day extra exciting. Isn't there a rumor going around somewhere that someone's sister-in-law's, cousin's, babysitter's ward is the "test" ward for 2 hour meetings instead of 3? Can that be my ward? (For those of you reading this wondering what the heck a ward is, it's what we call our church house congregation. There's so many of us, we can't fit into one building, so we split into areas or wards) Not that anyone reads this anymore.
Anywho, we drove up to Tibble Fork Resivoir and it was lovely! It made me want to go fishing & camping, and it also reminded me of the time I got my dad's little black 2 wheel drive truck stuck in a river stream as I was coming home from camping with some friends at 3am. Luckily someone with a bigger truck heard us splashing around, trying to push the truck out of the water and towed me out.  Don't tell Dad.

 This morning, we got up at the crack of dawn to attend the Sandy City Balloon Festival. It was neat and I took some cool pics of the balloons. This is my fav....until I noticed the old man fist pumping/photo bombing my frame. Ha. Nice ol' man, nice.

And last, I can't get enough of this little drool monster. He' sitting up now, which is adorable. My friend commented on Instagram that in every picture, he has a steady stream of drool coming out of his mouth. I had to laugh, because it's true! One of these days I'll find a little tooth popping through!

He's simply delicious! What a doll. You gotta take those opportunities when you get them. My husband calls nature his "church".....of course he also calls the swap meet on Sundays his church and Cabela's is known in our house as "the temple". LOL.

It is so true! Church is a battle with kids. I don't know how people show up ever Sunday with 1+ kids and survive all 3 hours. Kelly barely lasts until the sacrament is passed.

I would be the first person to sign up for two-hour church!

Nice update! Was the river truck incident up American Fork Canyon? I think I remember that crazy night! Hahaha. Good memories! 2 hour church would be cool. Gavin works Sundays and I'd be fibbing if I didn't say I was worried about adding #3 to the church picture! I will say that it gets easier once they go to nursery--- so you have that to look forward to in a year, right? :) miss you!
