I have been MIA in the blogging world for a while. Natalie has valiantly taken up the mantle of "head blogger" in the family and does a superb job. Just to remind everyone how good she is, let's try a little juxtaposition (did I just use that in a sentence? Does that make me an honorary English major, Craig?) with my attempt at a post.
Life has been busy for sure. School keeps me busy 7 days a week, despite my protests that Sunday is not the "perfect day to study strategy as a group". Not to worry. . . I found skipping church allows an extra 3 hours for things like the Finance Club Happy Hour.
We relaxed (sorry, my definition of relax: "not involving homework") this morning by going apple & raspberry picking at a local farm. Wes, the health-conscience kid he is, promptly picked up the first apple he saw lying on the ground and took a big bite.
The tractor ride was a big hit.
So many apples...such a little tummy.
The orchard had a hay maze. I thought it was well done, the 17 month-old population wasn't nearly as impressed.
We got a pound and a half of raspberries. Final verdict: not as good as Grandpa Smith's raspberries.
On this trip, what was edible was a concept that quickly caught on.
And finally, you have to put up with pictures like this one from time to time as I try out all the fun options with my new camera.

I thought I'd better post a few pictures from the past week. Wes is enjoying his last days of being an only child and all his alone Mom and Dad time!
It rained a ton last weekend and so after some time outside we came in and bundled Wes up in blankets. I think he thought it was pretty funny.
I thought it would be fun to take a picture of the LDS MBA 1 boys at the beginning of our adventure and then take a picture when our husbands graduate. We finally got the picture last Saturday. Carter is 6 months, Hayden is 11 months, and Wes is 16 months.
