We went to Texas last week to visit Randy, Kayla, Will, and Jack. Randy is Russell's cousin, and when they lived in Utah we used to hang out with them almost weekly. Russell and Randy had grown up as good friends, so when Randy and Kayla went to Texas for law school, Russell and I decided we would like to visit them once a year so that our kids can know each other and hopefully be good friends. When Kayla and I had our babies one day apart, that clinched it. We had to go see that new baby. We were a little nervous about the plane ride with a 6-week old, but Dorian was great for the whole flight. Here they are! "Baby Dor" and "Baby Jack," as Will calls them. Playing together already.
Dorian, Jack, and Will. This was one of the few times when all 3 kids were happy, and no one was crying. We thought we had better capture the moment. Randy made us these awesome steaks for dinner on Sunday. Russell's was as big as his plate.

We decided to eat out on the porch of the Mexican restaurant we went to, to avoid a long wait for dinner. This frog decided to join us. Next time we'll eat inside.

Kayla and I spent a lot of time like this, since neither baby wanted to keep sleeping if we put him down. Who wants to put down such a sweet baby anyway?

Dorian liked his new friends. I'll post a video of our failed beach attempt, if I can figure out how. Next year I think we will try to make our visit when it's not hurricane season. Is there a time of year when it's not humid in Houston?

That is one cute kid you have there. I love the open mouth smile he is always giving in photos.

Sounds like you guys had a successful and fun trip! Russell, is Randy your cousin that you set me up with to go to the rodeo back in high school?

What a cute little beautiful bundle he was (and still is)! Ootsie wootsie woo!
Sorry, babies make me say things like that.
I'm glad I didn't have back labor.
It looks like you guys are doing really well, and I'm looking forward to being a regular reader of your blog!
