April 2014

Standard

Through April, in between work and other life happenings, we kept making slow but sure progress in our yard. My mom was extra busy getting ready for Kenzie’s wedding that was coming up the first week of May, so Nate carried most of the yard load himself while I tended to our littles. We celebrated April Fool’s Day by having a couple loads of dirt delivered, and then the first weekend we had some guys put in a flagstone path around our patio. In the latter part of the month, we had my dad’s electrician come out to bid some work for us. Baby steps, baby steps.

One Sunday afternoon in the middle of the month, we took pictures of the kids in the bluebonnets. The wildflowers were as pretty as ever, and we got some precious shots of the kids.

We made it to the Velloway for a family bike ride before the flowers faded out, and it was awesome. My bike did break on my last lap, so that was sad… First-world problems!

Jesse and his family stayed with us the weekend of Easter because our nephew Weston was baptized on that Saturday. We enjoyed the Cannon-Steed family time along with some Easter celebrations, and we were proud of Weston’s choice to follow the Savior’s example by being baptized, although we didn’t end up with photos of the occasion.

On Easter Sunday, we had a Liddiard family dinner at our house and watched inspiring Easter videos. My uncle Steven was in town doing some tile work for my parents, so we were glad to have him join us. I love Easter and springtime when things renew in reminder of Jesus’ resurrection. Because of Him, the promise to conquer death brings so much hope.

The last couple weekends in April were dedicated to Kenzie and Joe. Kenzie went through the temple for the first time on Saturday the 26th, so that was a very special family event to all be there for it together. On Tuesday the 29th, Nate took Kenzie’s bridal photos. I’m grateful that he’s always willing to take time out of his busy work and church schedules to do photos for family members. It was a blustery day, but Kenzie was radiant and the photos turned out wonderful. Here are a few faves from the shoot:
