Fun With the Fam

Last weekend we drove home to Alamosa for my youngest brother Justin's high school graduation and Memorial Day weekend. The whole family was there, which meant my parents were in heaven! The last time we were all together there were only 2 grandchildren for them to love on, this time there were 5.

Justin and Crew. He's so great with the little ones! I can't believe he is graduated from High School and getting ready for his mission. He should get his call next week!!!

All of us at my Grandma Sally's Playing down by the River

My grandma's first time meeting Owen! Memorial Day we all went to visit my Grandpa's grave.

Gracelyn and Owen Owen with his new twin cousins Tenley (left) and Quincy (right). They are just 6 weeks. Owen looks like a tank next to them:) Owen and I stayed a whole week in Alamosa, as well as Spence and Car and their girls. Everyone else left Memorial Day. It was so great to just relax at home, spend time together, and take care of babies together....that really is all we did. I loved it.
Owen did pretty good for his first time traveling. He hardly slept on the drive out, but he didn't scream the entire way like I thought he might (since he loves his car seat so much). We flew back to Salt Lake and he did great, slept the whole way! I did struggle just a little trying to get through the airport by myself with Owen, a stroller, car seat, luggage to check, diaper bag, etc. but I'll take the 1 1/2 hr flight over the 8 hr car ride ANY day!!!
Here are some recent favs of Owen....

I love that picture of the twins and Owen. He does look big compared to them. I'm glad you were able to go home and visit for a week. I bet that was so nice.

Dear Best Buddy Owen,
This is Luke, your BFF. Right now my parents live in dumb boring Montana, but someday I hope we live in the same place so we can have lots of fun. My mom says your super cute, and she also says I'm super cute, so we already have something in common... oh yeah and we are both pretty much bald :) you look like a perfect mix between your mom and dad which is good because I think your mom is hott. I hope to meet you SOON!
See ya pal, Luke Knapp

How fun to see all your family together! Kennedy just said she can't believe how weird it is to see all you guys with kids! I love it! Nothing like a trip home with everyone to warm your heart! Made me tear up a little to see Sally and Jigg's spot on earth. Love those guys!
