We had such a wonderful weekend. If your an Anderson your bound to love BYU football... and if you don't you just might be disowned. Living in Texas though you just don't get to many chances to go to a BYU game. Last weekend they played TCU in Dallas. Friday morning we headed to Dallas for the game but knowing it would be a lengthy drive for Caleb we made a little stop at the San Antonio temple, mostly we just walked around the grounds and used it as a good opportunity to stretch our legs and eat some lunch.

When we made it to Dallas, we almost immediately headed to the Cowboys new stadium for the game. I will have to say that it is quite the stadium. We weren't sure how Caleb would do but we figured being a Texas baby he had to get used to football sometime, right? For Caleb the game started out like this:

Then it moved to this (which is how he was most of the time, what a relief):

and ended like this:

It took Caleb a little bit of time to get used to the noise but after that he was pretty great. Of course BYU lost but then again when your a BYU fan you kind of get used to it. We spent the next day exploring Dallas, hanging out at the hotel and of course eating.

Overall it was a fabulous weekend, we had a great time and it was really nice to get away for the weekend. Thanks Dad for making it possible!

Several people have asked us why we love living in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Maybe it's because we love taking family jogs along the bay front,
Or maybe it is because we love having picnics out by the ocean with great views of the Lexington and the water,
It might be that we have fallen in love with the splash park at the local aquarium,

or it even may be because Caleb will calmly watch the fish for hours if we would let him,

Nathan would say it's because we love living by the Ocean and spending family nights out having picnics, swimming, or just watching the birds,

It could be we love it here because we have made so many wonderful friends, because this is where Nathan's first "real" job is, or even because it is where we bought our first house, and where we brought our sweet baby Caleb into this world. But I think we love it here because we have made this is our home... and I hope we are here for a long time.

Caleb is 4 months old. It seems like every month goes by quicker then the one before. We have desperately tried to get him to stop growing but it just isn't working. Life has been so great with this little guy and we can't imagine our lives any other way. Not much has changed since last month other then he now can roll over, so between scooting and rolling he often ends up far from where I previously laid him down. He also has started eating rice cereal with a little bit of fruit one meal a day. It wasn't something I really wanted to start but after trying to get him to take a bottle ALL day with no success, I finally caved and decided to try rice cereal. He LOVED it! His face completely lit up with glee after that first bite.

Caleb got to meet his cousin Kylie this week! Can you even tell she is almost 4 months older then him? It's been a lot of fun watching them together and their reactions to each other.
