Skyline Mountain Resort

B's family invited us to their property in Fairview, UT last Saturday.
We packed up the babes and drove down for a fun afternoon.

Of course, the babes were a huge hit!

There was BB shooting. I have to give a shout out to my man- he hit the target like a pro. 
So sexy.

We took the 4-wheelers and drove around to different lookouts.
The leaves were AMAZING. So beautiful.
B also had some fun giving me and Lori a little "ride" over the rocks 
and racing along side his pops.

One of our stops was also to this rope swing that goes pretty far out over the mountain.
I might have opted out of trying it for fear of getting stuck and not making it off.
Maybe next year?

The day was topped off by getting to visit a former mission companion 
who is expecting her first baby.
She looked beautiful with her swollen belly and she seemed so serene.
Pregnancy is so good on some people.  Me? Not so much.

2 months already?

I got a text from my little sister yesterday. It read "I'm getting frustrated. You STILL haven't updated your blog." I guess it's time to get back in the blogging saddle. Biggest news: BABES ARE 2 MONTHS. Say what???? Yep, my babies are already 2 months and I can't believe how big they are. We saw the doctor on Wednesday and Liam is 8 lbs 14 oz and Finn is 10, yes 10 lbs, and 4 oz. They also got their first round of shots and they handled them like ultimate champs. Too weird to be a little proud of my children for only crying a total of 10 seconds after 3 pokes in the legs? Naw. 

(Liam with Grandma J and Finn with Uncle Shane. Look how big my boys are getting!)

They are showcasing their Cougar pride...although it didn't help much for last night's game. 
I can't even talk about it.

B was down at BYU yesterday to represent his company at the STEM Career Fair. I decided to pack up the babes and head down there to visit my alma mater, see my husby at work, and visit Uncle Shane and Grandma Johnson at her work. The babes were a big hit! We ended up eating dinner at Legend's Grill and then watching part of the football game at B's parents' house. 
At 2 months:

Babes are both smiling. There's a lot of random smiling, but there's also deliberate smiles for B and me. The other day I was feeding Finn and I pulled his bottle out just to see him grin big and give a little laugh! Oh. my. goodness. It melted my heart. Their necks and heads are getting stronger. They both have double chins and I have to take extra time to clean under the folds. Finn's eyes are VERY blue and we still can't decide what color Liam's eyes are going to be. Sometimes they look dark and then the next moment they'll look steel blue. They are only waking up 1x a night! That's probably the BEST news. They still sleep in the same crib and they tend to end up with their heads facing each other. It's pretty adorable. 

Oh my sweet babies, I love you to the moon and back!
Love, momma
