The Kirk Family at the Wedding

Avery's brother Matt was married on Oct. 18th in the St. George Temple so that meant VACATION!!! I excuses to get away and travel. Avery, Kylie and I flew out to Vegas with his family. Then rented a van and drove another 2 hours to St George. We had a blast! Not only did I get my Cafe Rio and In-n-Out fix but we also got a special behind the scenes tour at Tuacahn (Utah's famously known outdoor theater). Matt, Michelle (Matt's wife) and I had been to Tuacahn before but none of the Kirk Family had so we wanted to show them what it was all about. We happened to be at the right place at the right time at Tuacahn while they were setting up for the next production that was to begin the week after we left. A very nice worker asked us if we wanted to the stage. Of course we took his offer and he showed us where they do wardrobe changes, where the props are stored and even took us in the secret passageway under the stage that gets the actors from one side of the stage to the other during performaces. It was very cool. We also went to the Jacob Hamlin home in Santa Clara to do a little church tour. For all you Utahans our missionary who took us through was Mark Eubank that retired as KSL's weatherman. That was a fun treat to speak with him. When I told my brother Mark was our guide he asked me if he was wearing his white suit... Of course he wasn't since it was 87 degrees in St George that day. (The joke behind that is whenever it was going to snow in Utah Mark would wear a white suit on TV so you knew snow was on the way) I meant to get a picture with Mark but I had a fussy baby that needed to eat so I lost my chance.

Another highlight of the trip was my parents coming down and bringing Brenna and Corrin (2 of my neices). My brother and family also came down to see us. It was great to see all of you guys so thank you for making the 4 1/2 hour drive down! We miss you and can't wait to see you at Christmas!

Kylie's Baby Blessing

My Mom this beautiful dress at Broadbents in Lehi. I love baby's in blessing dresses. They are just so adorable!

Kylie was blessed on Sept 21st (yeah I'm way behind). My parents had been in Atlanta on business the week before so they flew up here to spend a week before heading back home. Even though she was about 3 weeks old we decided to go ahead and bless her so my parents could be a part of it. My Dad hasn't seen his new grandbaby so of course he wanted to spend as time with her as he could. It was great to see him holding Kylie. He's so good with all his grandkids but I think his favorite are the babies. Thanks Mom and Dad for spoiling us while you were here! We love you!

Wow time flies!

Oh my gosh, I am such a slacker. We have had so many things going on it's insane. First of all I'll post the weekly pics of Kylie. It's been so much fun to watch her grow and especially see her hit new milestones. She's been smiling at us since she was 6 weeks. I was feeding her at 5 in the morning and when I looked down at her she was smiling at me. She is so sweet & growing like a weed. Her 2 month check up was last week and she's 11 lbs 7 oz and 22 in long.
