Remiss: A Long Awaited Update

It has been a very long time since I have updated our blog and so I will try to redeem myself by posting lots and lots of pictures of all the busy things that have kept us going these past two months.


We celebrated Liam's fifth birthday with our customary lemon cake, cupcakes for his classmates at preschool, presents, dinner, and ending the night with a movie.

This past year, Bill's siblings have all moved back to our area and we have enjoyed lots and lots of wonderful memory building activities with them. We went camping and Liam's Fullmer cousins were able to join us for dinner and lots of fun playing, roasting marshmallows, and all things camping.


We enjoyed watching the amazing fireworks from our front yard with our Fullmer cousins as well as our friends the Murphies.

After the big show, we waited for traffic to clear. We spent the time setting off our own fireworks as well as enjoying some sparklers. We all drove to Grammy and Papa Nelsons house and spent the night camping out on their back yard. We awoke the next day to enjoy the entire day playing in the sun, running through the sprinklers, and having a cook out. We enjoyed super yummy food, yum!
Liam, Daddy, Grammy, and Papa drove to Lake Powell to spend time at the Nelson family reunion. The kids had a great time playing in the water, riding the jet skis, and hanging out on the house boat.


My sister Laura recently had a baby boy, we were delighted to attend his baby blessing the first weekend of August. His daddy did such a great job giving him a wonderful blessing. His name is Lochlan Patrick Murdoch, a wonderful name for our newest addition. I was able to get a picture with three of my sisters. I love having sisters and I am so happy for my sister to have her long awaited boy.

We had a great time enjoying our family while we celebrated Lochlans arrival. I loved this picture because it was adorable seeing these three littlest cousins sleeping in the midst of the chaos or our family gathering.We have had a great summer filled with lots and lots of wonderful memories. We hope that you have all enjoyed your summer as well.
