Settled In

We are officially out of boxes and enjoying our new home. It is the first time in our six years of marriage that we haven't had to share walls with anyone so this is huge. It is so nice not to be woken up in the middle of the night to music or to hear someone go pee and flush the toilet. This last month has been great! We have been spending every weekend at some family event of some sort or at a "getting to know you" thing for Jesse's residency program. It is so nice to be close to family again and Finn has been loving playing with all of his cousins. Jesse started his first official day of residency and has begun to play Doctor, which is crazy. He is freaking out but I know that he will be just fine. There are a total of six residents and all of them including their spouses are so incredibly nice and normal. We have been spending a lot of time together this past week and it has been lots of fun getting to know them and their families and know that Jesse will be in good company on those long hours. Here are a few pictures of what our last three weeks have entailed!
Jesse decided to be adventurous and climb a mountain by himself. I feared for his life, but he did return home safe and sound and said it was a nice get away to clear his head

He's crazy
What a mountain man!

I bought this little kiddie pool for our yard and Finn loves it. He was so funny and cute.

This is Finn's new "cheese" face
Finn having his little before bedtime snack. Lay's Baked potato chips. Yummy!

It is South Ogden days, so we decided to go to the Carnival and let Finn try the carousel for the first time. I think that Jesse was enjoying it way more than Finn

Finn started to scream so they had to stop the ride early, but then he cried when he was off because he wanted to get back on. He is just never satisfied!

We went to a park with Jesse's fellow residents to enjoy some music, junk food and fire works.

We went down to Jesse's brothers house to celebrate Jesse's moms Birthday

Wow that Finn sure is handsome! I love the "cheese" pictures! Mason (and Scott) will have to come play in your little pool one of these days. Looks like fun! ~Lenna

Finn is adorable! I love that Cheese face...what a cutie!

I wonder if residency is like the show Scrubs? You'll have to let us know!

I'm glad things are going well with you guys!

Those pics of Jesse are pretty cool, I love the background. I wanna get away and think some day, too bad I cant hike further than from the basement to the kitchen (for more icecream!).
I agree with all the above comments, of course, Finn is absolutely adorable, I want to squeeze him and bite his cheesey cheeks!
As for you Lindy, I miss you like crazy and the heading "Settled in" drives me nuts, it should say "Heading back!".
Glad you guys are doing well, I cant wait to come visit. Im jealous that you have so much family around, and are getting to spend time with them, thats so nice.
Sure do love you all!

So I see that Finn and Jess eat M&M's the same way.... Wish I could enjoy them that much. Thanks again for coming all the way down to Happy Valley. What mountain did Jesse climb and how far away was the parking lot, really?

I think Finn was screaming on the carousel because of the scary, giant chicken! I'd scream too!!! Looks like lots of fun times. Reminded me of my mountain climbing days with my dad and Finn's grandma Kris. Ask her about the "little walks" our dad used to invite her to go on with us! Ha, ha.

Finn is so cute! I hope that I'm able to see you guys again sometime soon. I'll be in town for the 4th, but holiday weekends are always so busy. If you happen to be at the Layton Parade though, give me a call!!

Dave, Mandi and Blake said...

all I have to say is that you guys are sure cute especially the little one! I'm missing you and can't wait to see you some time! Hope you're good!

Chambers Family said...

Your little boy is the CUTEST... good job to Jesse for hiking a mountain all on his own :)

Shauna said...

Glad you're enjoying yourselves in UTAH!!! Loved all the pictures!

The Burrell-Thomas Fam said...

Wow!! I cannot believe how big your cute little boy is! It sounds like you guys are doing great... Congratulations Doctor Jesse! I enjoyed reading your blog.

B and Jessica said...

That's great you guys are no longer sharing walls with neighbors. Now you can take your arguments to the next level without worrying someone's going to call the cops on you.

Bre and Sean said...

I don't think Finn can get any cuter. Ahhh!! They grow up too fast. I'm so happy you are all settled. Let us know when you're in SLC!

Bre and Sean said...

"Jesse decided to be adventurous and climb a mountain by himself." Ho hum, just another day in the life...geezo...I can't even get off the couch. Glad to see you haven't lost your spunk. Bring that zest for life over to Utah County and join the vast right-wing conspiracy!

Congrats on graduation Jesse! I'm excited for you guys to be close to your families. Looks like you guys have been busy having fun. Your new home looks so nice. Finn is incredibly adorable. Good luck with the residency!
