Happy to be a Mom!

I love this thought from President David O. McKay

"She, who can paint a masterpiece or write a book that will influence millions -- deserves the admiration and the plaudits of man. But she who rears a family of beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt through generations to come, long after paintings have faded, and books have been destroyed she deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God. In her high duty and service to humanity, she is co-partner with the Creator himself."

Date in Old Town Sacramento

Nana and Grandpa watched Spencer for us so that Devin and I could go on a date. We went to old town Sacramento and had ice cream and went window shopping.

Visiting the Rowleys

ON Sunday we went to Fresno to visit Naomi's Aunt and Uncle, they were the family we stayed with all last year. It was fun seeing everyone. Here is my cousing Sharon and me and spencer

Becca's oldest child ( 3 years old) Cambria, was a very devoted mother to baby Spencer, and never left his side. While I nursing him, she kept looking at me and said "he's almost done and I hold him?" and later after dinner she was determined that she should take him on a walk, when we told her he was to little, she said "oh, I teach him". It is fun watching little girls be mothers.

Babies on the Lake

So taking a baby on the lake is a whole new experience. One Word: Life Jacket, thank goodness the engine of the boat made him stop crying.

So Spence is still a little small to go surfing so Naomi thought she would go for him. Devin was also amazing on the water, but we didn't get any picts sorry.

Hanging out in Sacramento

Here is one of Spencer's cute smiles while playing in the bouncer.
