Maura's New Specs

Well our little Maura had to get glasses. She failed eye exams at the pediatrician's office and at school so we took her in to see an eye doctor. He told us that she has an astigmatism in both of her eyes and that she needs wear glasses all of the time. On the way home from picking up her glasses she asked me "what are those lines coming out of the poles?" I couldn't believe that she was just noticing power lines after all of these years. I feel bad that I didn't notice that she needed glasses earlier.
So far she has been very responsible about putting them in her case at night and being a little more careful when she plays so they don't break. She is very excited to have them and her teacher made a big deal about how great she looked in them so she would continue be excited about wearing them. I thinks she looks great too and I'm glad that she will be able to see everything better too. Love you Maura!

A visit from the Webbs

We had a visit from Klint, Corinne, Jameson, and Alex a few weeks ago and we had a really good time. The first few days we just about killed ourselves with all of the touring we did, but it was fun showing them around. We went to Palmyra and the Falls and relaxed and played the rest of the time. It was great to catch up. The kids were so sad when their cousins had to leave. They are still telling me how much they miss them. Thanks for coming guys!

Getting ready to go into the visitor's center

It doesn't get much prettier than this view.

All of the kids except for Taya.

Timmy and Topher really wanted to have a picture in front of the Temple.

All of us in the Smith home. We sang I Am a Child of God and even the two year olds joined in.

I loved these two pics of the boys watching the stream.

The kiddos watching the Falls.
