Travels. Utah. Dakota. Family.

1.) I'm terrible at keeping up with this blog!
Between being a full-time nurse & mom its hard...
How do all you moms find the time to blog?
Well, we went out to Utah for our annual trip.
Preston's brother finally got married..woohoo!
We had a great time visiting with all our family.
Packer got to meet everyone, even great grandparents!

My two cute boys at the reception..so precious!

All the girls! (and packer..)

2.) Packer and I continued to travel.
We flew to South Dakota in February
We had a nice visit with my family for a week.
I was so anxious about traveling alone with a baby.
But Packer was so good on all the flights!
He even got his own seat!
For those who don't know....
My dad and step mom had a baby girl a few months ago.
So, I have a little sister who's is younger than my son.
And Packer has an aunt Rachel who he is older than.
It was so nice to finally meet her!
She is so cute and so sweet!
Her and Packer are going to be great friends!

3.) Obsessed mother.
Yep, that's what I am now.
I take several pics of my baby on a daily basis
So, this is just a FRACTION that I've taken.
My cute little Packer...





love. him.

4.) Here are 5 month pics I took of Packer in December.
I took them in our backyard before we raked the leaves.
I have never been much of a photographer.
So, I was quite happy with how they turned out!
I edited them with my awesome new digital camera.
I may feel a new hobby coming on...
