🇵🇪 Peru 🇵🇪

Our friends Steve and Hillary took us to Peru for dinner. It was a cheesy, spicy chicken sauce that goes over rice and potatoes. It was delicious. The spiciness makes your tummy feel comfortably warm afterwards. And Hillary brought a flan she had made for desert, which was hands down the best flan I’ve ever tasted.

Catching Frogs and fish

 The walk we like to go on is beautiful, and the kids love to catch frogs in the water, and Amy caught some tiny fish in her hands too.

 The kids have found a great pirate fort that they like to climb up in when we take our dog out on walks, and we love the view out here in the country. We feel we live in a little piece of heaven.
 This is a rainbow we saw yesterday. We thought it was cool that the pot of gold is the Temple, or House of the Lord.  Eternal families are so much more meaningful than a pot of coinage.

🇪🇸 Spain 🇪🇸

We went to Spain with the Simmons. We ate a yummy potato, onion, egg pie that was quite tasty. It’s very interesting to see pictures from people’s missions and get a feel for an area.


I took Jacob to his 6 month check up and didn’t realize we were dressed the same. It was kind of funny when the nurse pointed it out. He’s growing up so fast now it seems. He cut his first tooth, on the bottom, and he’s slept better at night.


 I am ready for spring, but it is good that we are getting some moisture. We’ve had an interesting few weeks. We’ve caught two skunks, I had my 7th bout of mastitis since Jacob was born, we are adjusting to having a dog, and learning to keep an eye constantly on Lily who’s a little bit of a mischief maker.
 Jacob looks so cute, especially on Sundays.

And I love howRyan is such a great father. Being married to him is so wonderful. I love watching him play with the girls. They built a snow fort the last time it snowed.
