Isla's Baby Blessing

This weekend we had the chance the make a quick trip home to see beautiful baby Isla be blessed by her dad and family. It was such a beautiful blessing and day. It has been hard to be so busy and not see her and Sarah as much as we want but we are looking forward to seeing her more this summer. Isla looked adorable in her dress and didn't even make a peep during church. I got a ton of cuddles in but I can't wait to get more in a few weeks!

 So happy to be getting her blessing 

 And then she was asleep

 Isla loved her Uncle Derek

 We love this little girl!

 Get ready for lots of girls trips Isla! 

 Look at the way her hands are holding on to my arm.. It melted my heart!


Over the last 6 months, I have had the amazing opportunity to travel all over the country (and to Barcelona) for my job. I get to travel to different ports and train different teams, but also get to see different cities. The best part is that the people who I work with know these cities like the back of their hand and so I always get to see the best parts of the city. I recently went to Vancouver, BC and loved it! I spent a week there and had the chance to go explore the city with one of my co-workers. It was the perfect day out and we pretty much walked the entire downtown area. I never would have dreamed I would have the chance to travel to all of these amazing cities, but I am so grateful I can experience all the different cultures this world has to offer.

 I tried a pannekoek (Dutch pancake) and it was delicious!
