Sunday Snapshot - Liam Goes to Church

This was the outfit Liam made his great church debut in.

To be honest, I LOVE bringing the new baby to church that first time and seeing everyone fawn over him. Our ward doesn't get too many new babies, only about one or two a year, so it is always an event when a tiny package shows up.

However - I didn't realize that one of the drawbacks of this ward love that comes with a second baby is that everyone else loves to snuggle him. Between chasing Ivie and life in general, I already feel like my down time t just cuddle Liam is precious. I was looking forward to that time at church, but had forgotten how new babies make the rounds to everyone else's arms. I hardly even held my little man today. It's okay, and I'm happy to share - I'll just have to find more quiet time for the two of us at home. You can't blame the sweet ladies in our ward who want to snuggle them. As my sweet friend Brynne always says, "holding a new baby is the closest we get to heaven in this life, because they just came from there."

He does look like a little bit of heaven, huh?

*Also - I LOVE that his bow-tie looks as big as his head in this picture. :)

Off To Idaho

The kids and I took a quick trip up to see all the fam in Idaho this past week.

It always makes me wish we lived closer. We had a wonderful time, and it was actually one of the more relaxing trips we've made up there. Usually we end up dashing around everywhere so fast that I come home more worn out than anything, but we had a slower pace this time and just got to hang out and visit with our three familiesL Cobbleys, Suttons & Lindermans.

We are blessed to have so many people to love and be loved by.

Some of the Idaho highlights included:

  • Attending the Flamm family reunion at Green Canyon. LOVE this reunion and my family. It warmed my heart to see Ivie play with new cousins as I visited.
  • Ivie floated the drybed with Grandma and Grandpa Cobb for the first time. Awesome. 
  • I got to see some special childhood friends. Love those girls.
  • I also visited Trev's cousin William and his wife Ashley, we won't see them in Newport this year, so it was good to catch up for a quick minute. 
  • My dad planted trout in the pond up at the farm and they were an absolute riot to feed. There are some golden trout too, which are fun to see. 
  • Had a nice visit with my Grandma Gwen

  • Floating the dry bed
