The Nelsons Come to Oregon


Yep, this post is about something that took place 2 months ago.  There might be a few of those coming up.  Bare with me.  Oregon was a GREAT time and we had lots of fun experiences, but coming back to Utah seriously threw me for a loop.  So, we are going to be telling you all about what happened to us two months ago!

Mid June we had a visit from my sister, Kristen, and her family.  It was the first time for Benson to meet Nolan, Aiden and Regan.  It was such a fun few days.  I felt bad that I had to work most of the days they were there, but I still got to spend time with them and it was a lot of fun!  We got to eat yummy food at La Perla and walk around the cute shops in downtown Salem. We went to the coast and the free aquarium (long drive, short time at the beach, sorry guys!).  We also went to the drive in movie, which was so much fun.  It was Aiden and Regan's (and I guess Benson's) first time at the drive in and such a fun thing to share with them.  We had a full few days and we are so glad the Nelsons made the trip.  

Hanging with Uncle Nolan for the first time

I have LOVED those beautiful blue eyes since he was born!  I cannot believe Aiden is already 10!


Aiden and Regan LOVED DJ, like could not get enough of her.  She is pretty lovable, so it wasn't hard to understand.

Playing peek-a-boo.  These 2 are 10 years apart almost to the day but Benson loves his cousin Aiden.

My favorite view in the car

Cousins

haha, maybe not so happy about this one.

Another family picture at the beach (this time it was Newport)

Benson's first time with his feet in the water.

It was way too cold!

Archie and DJ hung out with us and the Nelsons as well.

Me and my boy
Oregon was a blast and it was fun to share it with the Nelsons.

Looks so awesome! I wish we could have come to visit too...Maybe next time. I especially loved the picture of Ben teaching Regan to dance. ;) We look forward to seeing you guys soon!

Dance! I think it was boxing because you usually don't wear boxing gloves to dance! Looks like a fun time for everyone.
