I just can't believe our little Logan is 6 today. It is so crazy how fast time has flown by. We sure love this guy! He is such a sweet boy and we are so proud of him. Here is a little bit about him....he loves Star Wars and playing video games. He likes to wrestle with his dad and read books to his brother and sister, Austin and Sammie. He is the best big brother in the world and he gives the best bear hugs! I am so lucky to be the mom to this great kid!!!

Family picture

I don't know about you guys but I love when my kids draw pictures for me. They are so adorable. This is a little picture of our family by Sammie. In the picture are daddy, mommy, Logan, Sammie, Austin and our newest addition that will be joining our family in October. We are excited about having this new little joy in our family. And the best part is we are having a GIRL!!! Sammie is ecstatic!

We're still alive

Hey everybody! I know it has been about 6 months since I last wrote on here. I am really going to try and be better about this whole blog thing. Life has just been nuts these past few months. I just wanted to let you all know we are still alive here in Seattle and I will post pics soon. :)

The trip home. . .

Our year in Ireland is up and time to move home. It flew by too quickly. It was a great memorable year with trips through Europe, the birth of Austin, the death of Pat's dad, living in a foreign (but not that foreign) country, serving in a branch, our kitchen flooding and on and on. I'm so glad we took this opportunity - great times.
On the trip home in August we stopped off in Boston for a week to visit my parents. While visiting with them we drove to some church history sites (none of which we had visited before) as well as Niagra Falls. Thanks Mom and Dad for a great week.

The Joseph Smith farmhouse - where it all began.

A picture of us in the Sacred Grove. All I can say is. . . it's true!

The Bray Branch

We loved the branch we attended. About 50-60 came out each week. We loved each person and each experience we shared with them. For our last Sunday everyone stayed around after and sang the hymn "God be with you 'til we meet again' and took a branch photo. This is about 3/4 of the branch. We miss them so much already. . .
This is basically the whole church building. What you see through the window is where we have sacrament meeting. We then divide it into 3 small sections for primary, priesthood, and Relief Society.

This is the entrance from street.

Austin is crawling!

Austin starting crawing in July. He is just such a great baby. (if only he'd sleep through the night. . . )

Edinburgh, Scotland

Katie came to visit the first week of August. IT WAS SO FUN! We flew over to Scotland for the day, it is beautiful. Some people thought we were crazy for flying there in the morning and then back that night, but it actually worked out really good for us.
