Hanks on a Plane!

So we set off once again to Provo to attend the blessing of the sweetest baby ever, my nephew baby Ethan. Here are Hank and Ethan getting acquainted with each other. Look how he is screaming with joy in my arms!

On Saturday, my folks took us to Sundance and Park City to enjoy the incredible weather we were having. Here is Hank taking in the view at Bridal Veil Falls. I loved his face even more than the scenery! And for all of you who think I am horrible for keeping him strapped to his chair while Shane and I got out and enjoyed the view, don't worry. We threw some french frys at him and he was good for 1/2 hour.
We seriously tempted fate and went on the ski lift ride at Sundance with Hank. See how Shane is literally squeezing the life out of Hank to make sure he didn't plummet to his death. The last thing Mr. Redford needs is an ugly lawsuit.

Hail Zion!!

LL Cool Hank

All in all it was a good trip. Derek did an amazing job blessing Ethan, and it was just nice to get away for a while.

A brief note to my family: Sitting in church yesterday and thinking about all the things we have been through these past 6 years, I was filled to the brim with gratitude for my family. I can't think of a better group of people to go through the trials and joys of this life than with you. You make me proud to be a sister, daughter, wife, and mom. I love you all so much, and know there is no force strong enough to take down Team McLaughlin/Johnson/Jones. And, we are seriously going to rock at the Family Reunion Bowling Night.
That's a throwdown Beagley's, Rowley's and Armstongs!!!

Hey Megan - It's so good to have you home and now I'm finally home, we have to get together. I love your home improvments. I have a butterfly bush blown over in my front yard, what would your recomendation be? Now that you are a green thumb junkie! Hank's face is priceless!

McLaughlins/Jones/Johnson: One note of warning. You had better bring it to bowling night. And I mean BRING it. The last time Steve and I bowled (at our company Christmas party) he bowled a 230... 5 strikes in a row! Yeah, you guys are probably more faithful, obedient, loving, charitable and you will certainly need to do some serious lobbying to get any of the Rowleys into the Celestial Kingdom.... but in a bowling alley??? Good luck with that.

Seriously, tell Hank to stop growing. It's actually making me a little sad. And tell him that the diaper/high-tops look always works with the lay-days. I'm gonna see how Nathan feels about introducing that look into his wardrobe.

Thank you for coming down for Ethan's blessing. We love seeing you guys. One time you'll have to come when my family isn't here so you can have all the Ethan time you can handle.

I know I feel truly blessed to have married into such a wonderful family! Thank you.

Megan, I finally found your blog again!!

I lost my original friends list when I changed my blog's theme.

And then I didn't have the time to find all the url's again.
Last month it was crazy, my father passed away.
Everything slowed down.
I need to go back visiting teaching. I always enjoy visiting Vicky.

We're expecting another boy, John chose the name, his name will be Shane Robert.

Drop a line on my blog to let me know if you're interested to read it after it's set to private in July.

Have a great day!!

So I tried to take your jane Austen quiz, and I just don't think I fit any of the available responses. What kind of quiz is this!?! And since I don't think she'll be writing anything new... I guess that I'm just cut out to be a Jane Austen Heroine... I guess I'll go to the ThunderCat website and see which ThunderCat I would be...I'm hoping for either Liono or Snarf
