We went to Roosevelt Lake on Memorial Day with Stan, Lou, Nick and Kambri Stout. We had so much fun. Larry and Melanie got to wakeboard (it had been 9 years) and Ethan thought about it...someday, Ethan! Catherine had so much fun and we think she was made for the lake and boats. She was wired the entire time.
Ethan's gettin' ready!
Catherine got to man the flag!
Larry...trying not to fall.
Ethan had to wear this life jacket...he could barely move.
So, Ethan started crawling a couple weeks ago and he's been busier than ever. It took some coaxing from us, using the TV remote he never gets to play with. He was so excited to reach it and then we'd move it a little farther away. Now he's into everything. We took some video a couple weeks ago and I'll post that soon, too.
Helping Ethan learn how to eat by himself has been totally different from teaching Catherine. I'm sure it's this way with most parents: You're always more careful with the first. And so it is with us! The pictures explain the rest.
While in Utah we were able to see the Christley family. Lilly and Catherine had a blast together. On the way up to Utah and on the way back we stopped and spent some time with the Barney's. The highlight of visiting them was playing "Rockband" on the Play Station 3. We were also able to see the Liddle Fam while in Utah. We have been friends with them since 2004 when we lived in UT.
We had the opportunity to attend Kimber's and Ryan's sealing/wedding in the Mesa, AZ temple on the 26th of April. It was a beautiful ceremony and Larry played photographer for most of the day. We are so happy for them. The week after the wedding we went to Utah to attend the sealing of Brandon (our nephew) to his parents, Ben and Adrienne Donner. Ben is Melanie's brother. We had a great trip and were able to spend time with lots of family and friends. The sealing took place in the Jordan River Temple.
