I've been so focused on this...and this... Yes, we are moving. (more on that later.)
That I haven't been capturing enough of this.
He has been busy and totally crawling and on the move since ten months old. He's now into pulling up on everything, reaching up for things, starting to hand walk just a bit, and busy playing. He is such a happy boy and absolutely LOVES balls. One ball could keep him entertained for a very very long time. He throws it, crawls to it, throws it again, all over the place. I know when his ball goes under the bed, or is unreachable because he does a certain grunt. We have a video- we'll post it soon.

This year Andrew FINALLY gets to join the fun. If you ask him how old he is, he'll say, "I'm three so I can play Tee Ball." (not kidding) They had their first game yesterday and Benson had a great time, kind of old hat for him, and Andrew grinned from ear to ear the entire time, and also pretty much knew what to do from watching Benson for two rounds last year. This is really fun for us parents!
Here's their cute little team. They already have one friend on the team, Joseph.
Talmage is such a good sport- he's going to be watching a lot of seasons before his turn.
It will be fun to see how he improves this season. I think he'll pick-up from last season and continue hitting coach pitch instead of from the tee.
This guy has more passion- and we are so anxious to watch how he plays. He did really well for his first time, but also seems to think that when the ball is hit that the game turns into football, because he tackles and dog piles on wherever the ball goes. We're working on that.

We started our Saturday with Cinnamon rolls, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Our family spent the morning together listening to Conference and enjoyed it so much. During the break we went to see a home, and then went to Carlie's and Jeffrey's home to see all of their sprinkler ditches. We ate an awesome lunch together and then Carlie hid candy eggs for the boys to find. Really, she is an exceptional aunt! Kimball was focused on ONE thing that day, and it was skiing with his family- so on to Alta we headed. BEAUTIFUL DAY!!! I love skiing in April- truly.
Out for the hunt.
Talmage woke up from his nap with all the hubub and Kimball took him
around and he'd grab the eggs.
I've said it before, kids MAKE any holiday or occasion!
Then to the slopes. Like I said, it was sunny and beautiful, but that also meant muddy ski boots to clean after. Look how little Andrew's boots are!!We took Andrew 1 time last year on April 30th and he only got about 20 minutes with Kimball. We treated this as Andrew's real 1st time. HE DID SO AWESOME!! Kimball manned Andrew and I manned Benson. We went down the hill, and then up the tow rope over and over.
After I'd taken Benson down twice Kimball said, "Erica he can ski by himself." I let him go from then on and I just skied behind him. He did so so awesome. I'd just tell him turn left, turn right, french fries, pizza. ALL of the boys had a really great time and unfortunately got a bit too much sun on their faces. I had a really great time too, especially seeing Andrew's amazing progress and Benson be so independent. Then it was on to dinner time, Priesthood session and time with family.
