At the beginning of May I was fortunate enough to take Connor out to California so he can meet the Montgomery's on Gerrets side of the family! No one has meet him yet so it was a ton of fun to introduce him to all of them. plus he's at a cute and fun age right now. I certainly enjoyed time spent on my old stopping grounds and seeing great friends!
Connor and I covered lots of ground and people while we were in town. visiting Grandma and Grandpa Montgomery, a few of Gerrets brothers and family, Cousins, nieces and nephews along with my brother and friends of ours. We love having so much family and friend's out in California still. makes for a great trip when we go back. I wasn't great at getting pictures as I am always bad about that, but here are a few of the ones I did get. It was a very busy 6 days of time with grandma and grandpa, family dinner with cousins, brothers, beach, late nights with friends and of course lots of play time for Connor! Thanks everyone for making this a great trip, We look forward to seeing you all again at Christmas!
Marty Ann, Connor and me!

My mom is a a very sincere loving person who you can just sit back and laugh with. My mom has always been a great listener to me and my struggles.I know she worked very hard and trying to raise six children in the gospel. which I am realizing it's no easy task in today's world. I am already beginning to have fears and worries that are way off in the distant future. I am guessing that's part of being a new mom. I am so thankful for my moms example of what is right and wrong she has always been so grounded in the truth. Love you mom!
found this quote on my sister in law blog. love what it says.
Having children is not only life's question, but life's answer. Children will push you to grow. It is honest painful work. True, you may lose yourself in bearing children, but in raising them, you find yourself again. and realize you are somehow more. You are smoother in places that used to be rough. and that is good.
I am so thankful to be a mom although I know I am completely new at this and lots of times I don't know what I am doing, but I feel fortunate to have this calling in life and I know that if I make sure the lord is apart of my children's life things will be as he wants them to be.
