Rhett had his first airplane experience with many more to come, I'm sure. On the first flight, he screamed for a little while and I of course was so worried about it. Mitch was calm and cool and all I could see was glares from everyone around us. But it turned out to just be my imagination. After bouncing, binkies, and balancing Rhett up by the air conditioner (he loved that for some reason), Rhett finally fell asleep.
On my way back to Houston, when I was flying with Rhett by myself, I was much calmer and Rhett was an angel. There were some other crying babies and I realized no one cares! The only people who are worried about it are the parents of the crying baby (and maybe some other jerks).

The next morning, we went to Mindy's house to meet Taggart and the whole family was there!! It was such a fun surprise.
Love that he is Rhett's Grandpa.
Taggart is the cutest and sweetest little baby. Mindy was doing so great and loving being a mom. She is such an amazing mom already. Taggart LOVES his mommy. I love that we get to go through this together.
Kev and Rachel got to meet Rhett for the first time. Kev's a good whistler so Rhett loved them both. They are the cutest engaged couple!
That night, we had a fun get together at the Petersons. Here are the 4 generations together!
Rhett with Grandma Win and Grandpa Eddie. We love them!
Rhett with his cousins Richard and Rex
They kept asking Mitch if Rhett needed to do more tummy time. They loved it!
We had some yummy dinner and treats thanks to my family's hard work and then headed down to St. George!! There was lots of pool time and just hanging out which is the best! I love how Rhett looks like a sumo wrestler in his swim suit.
We got to see Luke again which was so fun! Rhett and Luke bonded weeks ago
Tagg and Rhett had lots of time to hang out together.
I love this picture of Rhett cuddling his aunt and Tagg.
Uncle Tal with all three of the babes.
We got back from St. George and went for Saturday morning breakfast at Market Street and to the Temple after. Minds and I showed up wearing the same outfit! I love these girls! Oh and Mitch loved the refillable hot chocolate.
We of course had some game nights at the Petersons! Tellustrations is pretty intense/hilarious in this family. Rhett loved all his aunts and uncles and being with his Grandma and Grandpa again.
That night, we had a fun dessert night at Grandma and Grandpa Peterson's
Carl and Rhett
Al and Rhett
Rhett's Great Grandpa Jim takes everybody's picture on this saddle. Why you haven't seen mine is a mystery.
We got to go to a Bees game which was a blast, even though Rhett wasn't loving it.
My sweet aunts on my Smith side threw a shower for Mindy and I. We had so much fun and got lots of cute matching outfits.
I love the picture of my sweet Grandma Lee with Minds and I. She is a saint.
Rhett got to spend some time with his Great Grandma and Grandpa Smith. They are incredible and loved seeing Rhett. My Grandpa has the most amazing memory and remembers everything about our lives. Grandma Lee and Rhett were just talking.
We had a fun pizza, ping pong, pink ball party played with pizza boxes as the bases and the tennis racket as the bat. Rex was the all star of the whole game. After the pink ball, we played around the world ping pong which turned into the guys seeing how many times they could hit it to themselves. pretty hilarious.
We had a fun dinner out on the patio and enjoyed the beautiful weather and fresh picked raspberries.
Rhett had so much fun being outside all day and zonked at the end. We missed having Mitch there!!
For our last couple of days, Minds and I did lots of taking care of our babes together, going on walks, and chilling with Natsy and my mom.
Rhett also got to meet his Grandpa HR. He called Rhett a little pipsqueak which I think means he loves him. This man is so sweet and we love him so much. He has so many stories that I can't wait to tell Rhett.
Mitch came and picked us up at the airport and had a little birthday surprise of his own. He is always so thoughtful! We ate the whole cake the next day. Then went grocery shopping. We're glad to be back but are missing our wonderful families!
