Hold Me Close

We have been having a great time on our vacation. Hyrum was so cute out on my parents basketball court. He would try to dribble the ball a few times and then try to take a shot. It was so cute. He has loved balls ever since he was only a few months old. It seems only natural now that he would love to play the different sports associated with each ball.


He is still in love with soccer. Today we went to more of Camille's soccer games. During one of her games he saw some kids playing soccer and instantly wanted to be over there with the kids playing soccer. He still talks about his soccer team almost every day.

Although our vacation has been great, I think we are getting a little homesick. The other night, while I was snuggling with Hyrum before bed, I got up to leave and he asked me to "hold him close." I had no problem filling that request. Hyrum is always telling me that he misses his daddy and that he wants to go back home to see him.

How cute! I just love it when Makayla says stuff like that. They are so full of energy all the time that it is nice to just snuggle them and "hold them close" sometimes. So adorable!

That is fun you are spending time in Utah, too bad your hubby isn't with you. We are going to Utah at the end of this month, and like you, Kyle isn't going with us. That is cute he just wanted you to hold him close...what a heart melter!

Sound like your vacation is going well! But I agree it is always nice to come home at the end. Anyways that story about Emmy was absolutely darling!

I am glad that you are able to spend so much time with fam. Hope all is well without Brandon, wouldn't it be sweet if he could come too?! Things are usually much better with our other half. ... it was fun to see the kids in person!

We miss you guys!! Erick says we're becoming more and more like you guys everyday (in a good way). I think he mostly says that cause I always say that when I get pregnant next I want twins and then he just says "we really will be like the Brandon and Natalie" since we're on the waiting list at SCO...who knows. If all goes the way I want it to, we'll be just like you guys! Anyway, miss you.

It sounds like you have had a lot of fun while you guys have been gone! Aleece always wants to know when Hyrum is going to be back--she misses her friend!

Oh, I love that picture. What a sweet little boy!

I am glad that you are enjoying your vacation. But I know what you mean when you talk about being homesick. I always miss my own house and familiar surroundings when I am in Utah. And my kids don't like being out of their own environment for very long.

I remember Hyrum that big... I remember suffocating him in kisses...

Time just flies!
