My first fish

Wes and I's first date without Oliver was going out on the boat at banks to fish, while Oli stayed back with Grandma.  We were only gone for about 2 hours, but I don't think Wes has ever loved me more than when I caught this small mouth bass (except MAYBE when I gave birth to Oli!)  So I DO NOT like to touch fish, they freak me out, this was the second attempt to hold the fish up for a picture.  The first time I may have dropped the fish screaming, leaving Wes to catch the flopping fish in the boat!!  Wes caught five or six fish most bigger than mine, but needless to say Wes was very proud of me and we had a great time fishing together for our first date!

Oliver's Blessing

Today Wes gave Oliver his name and a blessing at church.  My parents, Carson and Jena drove over for the occasion.  My mom made Oliver this little (well not that little) white romper to wear for the blessing.  Wes gave a beautiful blessing in front of the entire congregation!  Jena took all these pictures when we got home. 

I love his lips!!!

Family Reunion

Last week Oliver and I took a road trip with Emy, TJ, Russell, and Amelia up to Cardston for a family reunion.  We broke up the trip with a stop at Sullivan Lake to see the Russell family at the "non reunion" that almost everyone went to.  It was so fun to introduce Oliver to my family there and in Cardston to my mom's side of the family.  Obviously everyone was surprised at how big he is for only being 3 months!!  This picture was taken in the Levitt cemetery where my Grandpa Cahoon and Aunt Colleen are buried, we went and sang at both grave sites.  The scenery is Cardston and Levitt is amazing, there are mountains, wheat fields and rolling hills.

A visit from Pops and Emily!

A couple weeks ago Fred (Pops) and Emily came to meet Oliver.  We all had fun enjoying Oli and tons of delicious food.  I'm so glad they were able to come for a visit!
