Everyone already knows all our news, but I have not officially blogged it, therefore, you don't officially know it. Or something like that. So here goes..... Avery Rose Behan arrived June 22. A little angel from heaven. Mama and baby did well and Paul was on cloud nine
Heath Ryan Holmquist arrived 'right on time' July 28th. Mama and baby did just fine. Josh called within a couple hours of birth and was able to hear his baby boy cry. Another slice of heaven.
The babies were blessed on Aug 3rd.
Emily spent 3 weeks on an awesome Church History trip that took her across the US and back.
Tait went on a 50-miler in the Cascades with his quorum
Eli and Grady came to visit us for a week in September! Finally, all 3 grandkids together and all 5 kids together too! Who can resist naked babies?
or a pile of babies?
or sleeping babies?
We 'managed' to fit in a Husky game..
and a hike to Fragrance Lake (recognize it Cheryl?)
And finally, we took a week and drove Natasha and Heath to California to help her get set up for when Josh arrived on Sept 15th. Can you say instant bond? It was and it was a sweet moment for father and son.
and of course, Disneyland is a must when in Southern California
Obviously much more happened this past Summer and these are the highlights, nonetheless, life is very full, busy and blessed.
