It has been fabulous weather. We have been so anxious to spend time outside, and we can feel the warmth of the fast-approaching summer. At the end of May, we spent as much time outside as we could. Charlie and I met up with friends from the ward, usually weekly, and headed for one of the nearby parks. I have really loved the friends I have made here. It was especially nice to have busy days while Jason was away in Roosevelt. Jason and John had a big job up there, so they ended up staying in a hotel there for two nights while they completed it. That left Charlie and I home alone, but it wasn’t bad at all with the delightful weather. It is also nice now that Charlie is a little older... we kind of have an understanding of each other and a typical routine. The day goes pretty smoothly, for the most part. I am so thankful that he is such a good nighttime sleeper.
We had another game night with two couples in our ward. Our goal has been to get together each month, alternating the host house. It has been really fun. This time we headed to the Gibbs. We enjoyed Telestrations, as well as their own version of the game. We always enjoy good company, good games, and good food.
We also visited our friends, the Wingers. They had their new baby, Boston, on May 3rd (sharing my birthday). We actually were with them having dinner at Texas Roadhouse the night before he was born. So a couple weeks later, we took them dinner and finally got to the meet the guy. He is such a cutie and so precious...as all newborns are.

Sorry, no pictures of Boston...fail!
A field practically to ourselves after the big crowds have gone...
I just love the refreshing beauty of the mountains. My appreciation for them has only increased since having Charlie...maybe it is seeing the pure joy that the mountain air brings him. I love it!
