So, as you saw from the last couple of posts, we had Luke's parents is town for a little while. We always love it when they come visit, and this time was no exception.
The first day that they were here, we took them to the Ft Worth Stock Yards. It wasn't our first rodeo, but we liked it so much last time that we wanted to show the parents.
Luke's Dad got on a longhorn:
But Liam was NOT happy about being up there with him. That big cow made him nervous.
He was much happier on the ground walking and jumping and holding hands.
And of course we saw the cattle drive. While we were waiting for it to start, some gentlemen standing next to us with a camera noticed a BYU patch on Luke's backpack and asked if we were Mormons. After a bit of chatting we found out that they were filming some footage for the CES Devotional with Elder Bednar that originating from our area that Sunday night, and they asked if they could film us, since we represent such a lovely young adult couple (family). :) Of course we said yes, and that's why so many of you saw us on the opener for the Devotional. (Which was a great one, by the way. Here's a link!) This is a screen shot from what showed of us:
Jules' Blessing was on Sunday, and we got to see some good friends that we don't get together with often enough both at her blessing and at their homes later.
And we spent the rest of the weekend hanging out at home. Loving on Jules...
And it was SO HELPFUL to me. After seven weeks, the sleep deprivation and chasing after Liam was starting to get to me, so I loved having another adult around to keep me calm and sane while Liam was having a moment, and to have an extra pair of hands for cleaning up after meals, getting out the door to go places, and just taking care of the babies. It made a HUGE difference having her here. I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful mother-in-law (and father-in-law too). And I just have to mention that because Luke's mom was here I got to take a nap every day last week. That's luxury people.
We loved having you here, Grandma and Grandpa Mott! You can come visit us any time!
