It has been amazing to get to play with cousins so much these past three months. We have loved watching them and tried to take pictures to help document the memory making.
Since Mila has been born the cousins have all loved on her, but the littlest of C's kids is so funny since she mimics what she hears and sees the others do. It will be so neat to see these two play in future visits!

We went to the zoo with the cousins to celebrate I and C's wedding anniversary! (Don't worry they had a dinner just the two of them later in the day) We got lucky with the free guest passes they had with their membership so we got to go with the family for free!
That animal is from Austrailia and is called a mara! Ha!

It is tricky to get pictures of Liam. Number one he has never been very interested in performing or posing and won't allow a picture, and number two he is often on the run.
My little four year old says hilarious things, he craves social contact, he loves the idea of weapons and battle, but is such a sensitive and compassionate soul. He is often very easy going, reasonable and empathetic, yet he loves his independence and has a sense of adventure that often makes me worry he will get lost or seriously injured.
My Liam the fierce warrior (that is the face he made when I told him to be a warrior. It almost looks like a pout! Haha!)

We have quite the crowd, and I'm not ready to take Mila to the highly populated church building during sick season, so we had her baby blessing at my parent's home :).
Ben, as always, gave a lovely blessing of health, joy and love.
We had a BBQ afterward and got to enjoy the company of family and dear friends. I'm so grateful we were able to have so many family members there for Mila's blessing. It is so special.
Aunt H drove down from Idaho

We have been attending ben's sister's ward while we have been here in Utah and they had a Valentine's dance tonight with babysitting provided. Sold!
Such an occasion called for a new dress and silly dance faces. We had a blast and Ben and I didn't do too bad with the dance class either, if I do say so myself!
Ben got me rainbow roses and I got him candies. Liam took the purple flower from the dance and said happy valent-times mom. Melted my heart. For that sweetness he gets lucky charms cereal!
