Baby Steps

He started walking on Saturday! This makes me so incredibly happy I had to share it with you all.

This was the first video we took. I don't think there is anything cuter than a little baby toddling back and forth trying to walk!

Making the move

The results were finally posted today for where we will be for our extern sites (during our fourth year of school)! It has been a LONG, stressful, emotional, hard, and prayerful process. We have been thinking of going anywhere from the New England area to Alaska but finally put our choices and we are really excited actually about the results.

We will be here (Chandler, AZ) fall of 2011:

And moving on to here (good old SLC) spring of 2012:

We won't be leaving for a year but it's so nice to know a little bit more of our future. It was actually a really hard decision to leave Memphis for externs, but in the end we feel good about it.

My Sister Came

(Like 3 weeks ago)

Let me just start by saying this- I feel very fortunate that Jason and I have had the opportunity to live away from home and see new places. We have loved it and have had so much fun. But, it is hard to miss out on fun things like birthdays, new babies, and currently wedding planning. Lucky me though, my engaged sister was nice enough to come to Memphis and do some wedding shopping..and more shopping. We did do other things though.

We went to Memphis is May; or in other words the world famous BBQ festival and saw people like this:

And we saw shirtless, sweating, potbellied men shoving in pounds of BBQ pork in the 90 degree sun. mmmm. I was going to get a picture but thought that might be a little awkward as I stood two feet in front of them pointing the camera.

Here we are admiring all of the coveted pig awards:
We also went to a baseball game. And here is the best pic I took:

And of course, we had to see Elvis and pose like him:

( I know we look alike so to clear the confusion this is Catie)
Thank you for coming, and making me feel a small part of the wedding planning until July!
