She also went to her first non family birthday party, it was Nathan's trainer's daughter and was at Build A Bear. I didn't get to go but She brought how a bunny that is completely Nahlia. Nathan said the helper tried to get her to pick a different one but she had to have that one. Its has pink, yellow, green, and blue flowers all over it.
This picture is when they first came out of the temple as husband and wife.
This is our family picture and tells a lot about how things work in our house. Nahlia wouldn't stand up for the picture so we knelt down. Hahaha
She really liked the peeps That weekend was also General Conference. It was hard to watch with Nahlia and when I was watching it, it was hard to pay attention or at least enough to really concentrate on what the spirit wanted to tell me, so I've been reading it all (and not just the ones that look interesting or by my "favorite" speakers.) I'm so grateful for the gospel and the knowledge I've had since I was a child. The beautiful simplicity of it humbles me and reminds me to not complicate it because of temporary earthly thing.
Kyle was asked me to go with him so he didn't have to go alone and so then I debated about bringing Nahlia because I didn't know if it was a kid party or not, so we left her with grandpa. Then we get there and its only Travis' close married friends (so kyle would have been totally out of place had he gone alone) and their 15 kids that were playing on a tramp, swing set, and many other various cool toys so we went back and got Nahlia. We thought it was pretty hilarious.

Cute on of Nathan and Nahlia
Nahlia getting mad that the wind was blowing her hair so much. Its long enough now that I have to do something with it or it starts to bug her.
Valley of Fire is another cool place for hiking for all levels. Its really great because there is so much to look at and explore for the kids (and dads).Nathan calls Mark SharkO so when he'd say it I think Nahlia thought it was really a shark so at first she was a little surprised that it was just a person but then she was stocking Mark or SharkO the entire time. As soon as he'd but Josie down she wanted him to hold her, SharkO was the only person to help her, "Come on SharkO, SharkO come on". It was very funny.Nahlia looks sad here but she really liked it and didn't want to get out.Another hole to look out of.Mark trying to show me how to take cool pictures with the red rock but Nahlia didn't want to participate. He took about 5 and she didn't look normal in any of them. In other update news my cousin Hiram is engaged and getting married in August so we look forward to that. Nathan Birthday is on Monday so I'm trying to think of what to get him. He really wants a big flat screen tv but since we don't have cable and a perfectly good tv I don't think its the right time. We are also anticipating a Nelson family reunion in mid June. We haven't seen Nate's family in a couple months now so we're really excited for the trip.
