You only have to watch the first thirty seconds or so to get the gist of what's going on here (I just have no idea how to edit my videos). Peter is getting more and more mobile every day (and has consequently already had a good tumble down a flight of stairs)!

Here's Benjamin (3 yrs.), Peter (9 mos.), Darci (3 mos.), and Anna (1 yr.).
Benjamin loves their house. I always did too as a kid. They had a merry-go-round, a tree house, a tire swing, a trampoline, a slide and a gazebo. It truly is little kid heaven. This wooden play set is a new addition to the yard, and Benjamin loved showing off his fireman skills on the pole.
On the way to Provo we had expected to make a few visits, but when Benjamin started complaining that his stomach hurt, we knew we had to wrap it up. We made a quick exit from a family reunion, but within minutes, Benjamin had thrown up all over himself and his car seat. I finally feel like we've been fully inducted into the Parent's Club or something.
After getting the boys down at Paul's parent's house, Paul and I drove back up to my cousin Angela's wedding reception. I couldn't believe it, but it's been three years since I last saw my cousin and best friend Wendy (Angela's sister) . We had a great time catching up! On the way back home, I was starting to feel nauseous, but was able to make it all the way to Provo before joining Benjamin on the floor all night. Good times. We're all better now though, and are ready to enjoy some more adventures with Paul's family!

Benjamin has really grown up a lot since my family last saw him. He is not the same shy, reserved little boy that required Mommy to do everything for him. We went for a hike near my parents house, and he wanted to hold Uncle David's hand the whole way to the waterfall.
My cousins Brennan, Kristi, Michael and Kelly came with us on the hike. I can't believe how grown up my youngest cousins are! They are all so much fun.
If you can believe it, I would have posted more pictures if it hadn't been for the fact that my memory card on my camera was completely full and the batteries were dead. Yesterday, we spent the day up Big Cottonwood Canyon, just hiking and playing and singing around a big campfire. Oh, and eating lots of really good food! My Grandma and Grandpa have over 100 people among their posterity now, and most of them were there. I love my family!
