This is our FAMILY JOURNAL, which is mostly about daily life I want to remember and some expat/diplomat experiences, a bit of our faith, and grand adventures thrown together. 

We chose to be diplomats because we believe in serving our country, we love to eat different foods, and we love seeing new places (check out the labels at the bottom of the page for fun places we have been- in and out of America). Our current diplomatic assignment with the US State Department is Washington DC for two years. Our fourth assignment will be in Muscat, Oman starting July 2017.

We are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, otherwise known as Mormons. The Christian doctrines taught in this church bring me perspective to life, love of my fellow man and a desire to do good.

Benjiman is our US diplomat and likes outdoor adventures, gadgetry and engaging in current events.

Lauren aims to be a renaissance woman and likes cooking/eating/sharing yummy food, outdoor adventures, running and creating colorful stuff.

Liam is our story teller and likes Star Wars anything, bike riding and eating like a foodie.

Ezra is our laugh machine and likes doing anything his brother does, puzzles and giving great cuddles.

Mila is our sunshine and likes dancing, charming strangers and drinking out of anyones water bottle but her own.
