Conner is always getting himself into a predicament of some kind. Here he is caught underneath the bouncy chair (Make sure and take note of his cute little teeth!). Yesterday it was much more traumatic. I was at Target unloading my bags into the car and there was some honking, and when I turned, my cart and Conner were GONE! I looked around and saw them ROLLING DOWN THE ROAD! I ran after him and the cart, they were about two car lengths away and still rolling. Thank goodness for the car backing out who actually looked behind her instead of crashing into my poor baby. My stomach hurt for the rest of the day.

Mom's Homecoming From Nauvoo

I went to Lapoint with Conner & Sienna for my mom's missionary homecoming. Sienna spent most of the weekend in the wagon with Kensley, while Kali pulled them up and down the driveway. The 2nd pic is Conner with his Uncle Robert, wearing a vest that Robert wore as a baby. The last pic is Kensley & Conner at bedtime. We had so much fun spending time with family and it was sad to leave them all, we don't get together often enough.
