What an evening!  Matt, Stacia & Will were in town from Boise, ID for Matt’s sister’s wedding and we were fortunate enough to get to hang out with them during their time here.  Matt & Andy, my husband, grew up together, so I’ve heard PLENTY of stories about Matt & Andy’s adventures!  It was great getting to know Matt and even better getting to know his wife, Stacia!!

Stacia is training to be a midwife.  You know, the home birth kind.  If you’ve been reading for awhile, you may have had a chance to check out the old blog and read Eli’s birth story & you may have read about our awesome Bradley Birth instructors, so you may know that I’m a big advocate for natural birth.  I’m sure you can imagine my excitement in getting to spend the evening with Stacia and talking birth, well, pretty much all evening! 😀  Stacia just returned from a month in the Philippines where she helped 25 women give birth safely to healthy little babes.  What a great thing to be a part of.

Then there’s Will.  He was the smileyest (pretty sure that’s not a word) little boy you’ve ever met!  He’s an adventurer just like his daddy.  We explored the woods and I think he would’ve stayed out there all night if we would’ve let him!  Will loves to jump, leap, be thrown, do flips, climb trees… you know, all that boy stuff 🙂  He warmed up to me pretty quickly and we had lots of fun!  Now on to the pictures!

Will is a very loved little boy…

Matt & Will were the definition of goofy!

He got some AIR!

I think this captures their family well!

Matt, Stacia & Will,  thanks for making time for us in your busy vacation schedule!!  We enjoyed your company and hopefully we will see you guys again soon!
