What we've been up to...

Since getting back home from Virginia I feel like I've just been trying to get back into the groove of things. Nathan started his 2 week summer break when I got home. The first week we literally spent just relaxing and hanging out together. The second week Nathan took off for 4 days with the Young Men in our ward on a scuba diving trip in California. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures from that trip, but they had a great time! As soon as Nate got back, we spent much of the weekend with his family. The family had surprised Ashley for her 30th birthday by bringing her out to Phoenix for a weekend of relaxation at a nice hotel in the area. So all of the siblings as well as Nate's parents were here. We definitely had some good times. And last, but definitely not least, I had the amazing opportunity of being our good friend Jen's labor nurse during the birth of her baby! Isac and Jen became the parents of an adorable baby boy on the morning of June 7th. Tyler Isac Simpson entered the world, weighing in at a whopping 8 lb 5 oz, and 21 inches long. Everything went super smoothly and it was so special for me to be a part of their experience. They had decided not to find out what they were having until D Day, so it was especially fun to be there for the big reveal! :) We couldn't be happier for them.

This was right as I was changed and ready to leave the hospital. Isn't he adorable!?! I didn't take any pictures on my camera of the rest of the time I spent with them throughout the night, but I think Jen has some on her camera so if I get any good ones, I'll be sure to post them. As a side note, due to my having worked Saturday night and then going in for their induction Sunday night, this is me on very little sleep (like 3-4 hrs in a 50 hr period).
We stopped by the next day so that Nathan and Sawyer could meet baby Tyler. Sawyer was pretty cute with him. We love this family!
Kind of random, but just wanted to point out that when Sawyer feeds himself, there's not a whole lot of food that actually gets in his mouth.
One of Sawyer's favorite toys...the vacuum cleaner.
And this is the most random thing about this post, but I for some reason took a picture of the dinner I made up the other night. I thought it looked pretty good :) Gotta love fresh vegetables in the summer!

I have to agree, Sawyer doesn't look like a baby anymore. Isn't it funny how you think your baby is a baby until they get next to a "real" baby and then you think "oh my gosh, where has the time gone." He is a cutie, and congratulations to your friends. You can cook dinner for us anytime you want. It looks like something out of a magazine.

p.s. love the yogurt picture with Sawyer. Today we went to Arby's with some friends and kaitlin insisted on feeding herself applesauce. It ended up in all of our hair. It was lovely. I guess they have to learn, despite being messy :)
