Welcome sweet Hudson

We couldn't be more excited to have welcomed our little one into the world earlier this week.  He is such a blessing in our lives already and we are do excited to watch him grow and change. He truly is an angel and it's beautiful to think of how recently he was up in heaven. His middle name is after Colby's father, who recently passed away, and I continually find myself thinking of the time they had together in heaven before his arrival.  I sure hope Kelly helped prepare him well for this world! 

Hudson, we love you more then we knew possible!

Final nights of freedom

As excited as we are for our little boy to join us in the next few days, we sure will miss our relatively easy date nights. Colby suggested that we take advantage of our "last Saturday" and go out. With packing, moving, and unpacking, it's been awhile since we've had a date, so his idea was perfect. Colby had found that there is a cafe rio about 10 minutes from us, so we jumped in the car and headed down the 405. My mouth was seriously salivating. We ordered our favorites: cafe rio pork salad for me, pork burrito enchilada style for him. They were just as we remembered from back in our Utah days.

From there we ventured into trader joes to check out the goods and escaped empty handed. We finished up the evening driving along the coast back watching the sunset, eventually ending back at our place. Final touches of the date included finalizing my hospital bag through a load of laundry. All in all, it was a perfect, low-key date I think we will both treasure.

Now, little man, we really are ready for you to join us. It's better out here, promise. :)
