A few days ago sweet little Bryson turned 4 months. The above pictures are him at 3 and 4 months. I dont have his current weight and height but he does have a well baby check up at the end of the month so that's when we will find out.
At 4 months:
He loves to smile at everyone
Has a ticklish spot under his chin.
Sleeps from 7:30pm-6am
Eats 5 - 6 ounces per feeding
Rolls over from his side
Is the best 4 month old ever

Lake Visitors

These 2 hit it off really well!

Arlan with kiddies seadooing.

We were so happy when the Clark Family came to visit and even more excited that they were able to go to the lake with us! We dont get to see the Clarks as much since they are in Idaho but it is awesome how when we do its just like old times! The kids all play really well together too!We had a fun day swimming, tubing and seedooing. I'm sure J was pretty happy this time that no cat tails were involved! :) Cant wait for our next visit!

Called to Serve

Dad, cousin Alicen,& mom with awesome cake she made them.

My mom with 2 of her grandaughters the day before leaving.
On July 1st my parents arrived in Honduras to spend the next 3 years. My dad was called to serve in the San Pedro Sula, Honduras mission as mission president. Allthough we miss them a ton we know they and our families will be blessed by their service. There are many reasons why the mission is going to be blessed by them but here are 3 of my top reasons. First I'll start with my Dad...1.He is the most knowledgeable person I know in the gospel. 2. He works so hard at all he does and serves with all his heart. 3. He drops everything to help someone in need. (thank you dad for the times I've called you late at night and you never hesitated to come help me with whatever was going on). My mom...1. She raised 7 great kids so will have no problem being a "mom" to 200. 2. She is the greatest cook / baker and always has a good supply of chocolate on hand. 3. She always served in whatever calling faithfully and taught us the importance of serving and supporting your spouse in their service.
WE LOVE YOU MOM and DAD and wish you the best over the next few years!

Our 4th of July

Our 4th of July this year was spent at Ventura Beach. We were there with Arlans family
attending the Garcia family reunion. The kids had a great time with their cousins. We went to the beach, played at the park, did smores and swam at the pool. It was a fun weekend.
