 I am so excited because in a week we will be going up to Oregon for a family reunion. I haven't been to Oregon since I was in high school so it's been a LOOONGG time. For those who don't know, my mom and Eric's mom grew up together in Oregon so it's extra exciting because I will be able to visit where they grew up for the first time. Every time we go to Oregon we either go to Beaverton or the coast but never Forest Grove. I am a little anxious about flying and being away from home with Trent for the first time but I am sure he will do great. I know Eric's grandparents are really excited to meet Trent as he is their first great grandchild. I can't wait for all the fun times. 

 I have never been here but I hear they have the best burgers. We will see if they are better than In N Out.

 Ever since they were on this TLC show I have always wanted to go here.

 Also some place I have never been but I hear they have really good food.

The gorgeous Oregon coast. Nothing else like it.

Three months

Well our little boy is three months and 1 day! He is our happiest little guy and is interacting with us more and more each day. He smiles and talks literally ALL the time. He is starting to laugh and it is the cutest thing in the world. He is in size 2 diapers and is in 3/6 month clothes. He is 14 pounds 9 ounces and loves to eat. He still eats about every 3 to 3 1/2 hours. One day he decided that he hated tummy time so much he decided he would roll over! He did it 3 times in a row. Just enough times for us to record it and then he was done for the day. He loves his play mat and will play under it for 30-40 mins. He is slowly loosing his hair and it's growing back in blonde which is really funny because the hair he hasn't lost yet (on top of his head and the back of his head) is brown so he looks like he has a mo hawk. He is a pretty chill baby and we hope that lasts!

4th of July weekend.

The 4th of July weekend was amazing. To start it off all of my sisters and mom came down to Provo to do some shopping and look around at the Freedom Days festival. It was fun to walk around and see all the vendors and to see Nicole and Jamie get a henna tattoo. Later that night Jessica, Nicole, Trevor, Josh and I went to Stadium of Fire (Jamie wasn't there because she's LAME). Jessica had been given some tickets from Mika for their anniversary and I was so stoked to go because I love David Archuleta and I love Brad Paisley. It was so fun to go and be silly. I'm pretty sure we really annoyed the people all around us because I was singing really loud and going crazy but hey that's part of the fun. The fireworks were amazing and I thought my face was going to burn off when they lit the fire in the stadium. 
Then the next day we blessed Trent. It was really special because Eric's whole family was in town and it was the first time his sister Lisa and her husband Mike met Trent. For those who aren't Mormon we give a blessing to name the child offically on the records of the church and then take the opportunity at that time to give the child a father's blessing. It was a really special day and I love my family. Here are some pictures.

 His blessing outfit. The bottoms are suppose to be pants. I for sure thought the 0-3 months would have been big enough. Guess not.

If his binky isn't in his mouth his hands are.

 I love this picture.

Then on the actual 4th of July we went up to Jessica and Mika's for a bbq, homemade strawberry banana ice cream, fireworks and smores. It was such a fun weekend and I love spending time with my family.
