We had some fun "firsts" this summer. Like:

First time at Vince's Spaghetti in Ontario. It's kind of a staple of the area. Drab as it may be, it is definitely a place to go. I don't think it has changed in 40 years. I grew up going, as did Wes; so it is only fitting we take our kids too.

Jovie gave her first talk in primary. It turned out so cute and lemme tell ya, that girl is NOT shy. She LOVED it! Wes helps since I have to teach 3rd hour and sometimes can't get there right on time. He whispered to her and for this particular talk they had Peyton help by putting on clothes that had symbolism to her talk subject; the 4th article of faith. (Gloves for baptism by immersion, laying on of hands with the hat, etc). She was chosen randomly to give another talk just 2 weeks later and the leaders were going to give her a break, but she was bouncing with excitement so they just had to let her do it. During that talk she sang "I Love to See The Temple" and spoke of her eternal family and made most of the primary leaders cry. I love her sweet spirit, and really believe the innocence of children and the faith they have is to be emulated. I am grateful to teach my children through the spirit.

Jovie had another not-so-fun first. Her first fat lip. 

We tried out some fun new hairstyles for the first time.

And Griffin went to the beach for the first time (and has since gone 4 or 5 more times too). His whole life is basically a first. That's one of my favorite things about having a new baby is experiencing everything again for the first time with them!
