Hello from Utah

We are having a great time in Utah.  The first day we were here Andrew's brother, Pete, came home from his 2 year mission.  The entire family gathered at the airport waiting for his flight to get in.  So Ayden got to meet his Uncle Pete for the first time and it was the first time in over 2 years that all of Andrew's brothers were all together.  There were lots of smiles, hugs, and tears.  We then went over to Andrew's dad's house for a yummy dinner with the whole family.  It was really nice to sit and chat with everyone and let everyone play with Ayden.  

We have done a lot more that I would like to write about and more pictures to post but it's late and I am so tired.  I will blog more in the next day or so.  Enjoy a few pics.  We love everyone!  -Alyson

My future music maker

Ayden loves music and LOVES the drum. I'm going to try and find a small drum for him for Christmas. This drum is just too big for him and it's hard for him to play it unless Andrew or I are holding it for him. Drew loves playing the drum for him. What cute boys!

Proud to be an American

HOPE Pictures, Images and Photos

We purposely do not talk politics on our blog but tonight is different. Tonight is about change. I am so proud to be an American tonight. Americans have finally stood up and said we want change........ it's not about the rich, its not about powerful, it is about real people that go to work everyday to put food on the table! The new generations are now taking over the leadership of our country and it feels so good. I cried tonight because I know how important this is and how lucky I am to be a part of this memorable event! It is amazing to see this happen in my lifetime. I feel confident that our new president will change this country not only for me or you but for our children...for Ayden.
