The Grand Canyon

So I have lived in Utah for 6 years now and i have never been to the Grand Canyon. Josh had his Girlfriend Lina visiting so we all went. I am a little afraid of heights so I was a little scared some times, but Cooper had a blast climbing around on some of the rocks and eating pine cones.

Yes that is me and Levi, I was scared to death!

Photo Shoot in Pive Valley

So Me, Jo, and Leah all decided it would be fun to take the kids up to Pine valley and take some pictures for this and that so we went last thursday. It started good, the ride was fun, all the kids were behaving. When we finally got there it was a beautiful day, a little windy, but nice. We started taking pictures and they we turning out good, then Laney got mad, then Bubba got mad. Dana was DONE taking pictures, and Cooper and Hank were crying... so we left. It was still fun and i am really glad we went. We got some good pictures. Check em out!

So, finally Jo has popped!! September 27th at 3:41 in the morning. She started having contractions at about 7 pm, but they weren't very strong, and not very close apart. I knew it was coming though. She called me at about 1:45 am and i headed to the hospital. She was there maybe 3 hours before she was fully dialated and realy to push. She only pushed 2 times and out he came. All the nurses were joking and told her she needed to give lessons on how to have kids. I was serious though when i asked her to show me how to push... anyway, he was 7 pounds 14 ounces, 20 inches long, and has dimples to die for. She named him Hank Ryan West.

Cooper and Bub

I had a little Photo shoot with Coop and Bub in my parents front yard. They weren't really cooperating, but some of them turned out pretty cute.
