I was going to blog each day, but then I realized I don't have the time to do that! So here is a quick recap of the rest of our trip!

James and I at the church that was built where Christ was born

Masada, it was hot that day!

Gethsemane, here Nathan talked about how he understands a little bit more what Heavenly Father went through watching his son suffer.

Israel--Days 1 & 2

We had the amazing opportunity to go to Israel with Nathan's family. It was a trip I will never forget! Nathan's grandpa, David Galbraith, helped start the BYU Jerusalem center and it was remarkable going there with him. I learned so much and am so grateful we were able to go where Jesus walked! I was nervous about taking the babies but they were such rockstars! They're the best little world travelers.

The first couple nights were rough trying to get the babies on the right sleeping schedule but they figured it out pretty quickly!

Saturday: We went to church on Saturday because that is the Sabbath day in Jerusalem. We got to attend the LDS church at the BYU Jerusalem center with the most amazing view.

1. Morgan's best friend is currently attending the BYU Jerusalem center, it was fun seeing her! 2. I love this picture of Erin and James at church.

The whole Galbraith clan, I love these guys!

1. I'm not one to post nursing pictures, but who can say they've nursed with that view?! 2. After church we went on a tour (given by Grandpa David himself) of the Old City.

Sunday: I don't have very many pictures for our Sunday activities. First we went to Yad Vashem, a holocaust museum. Those museums always get me. It fascinates me but breaks my heart at the same time. Kids under 12 were not allowed to go to the museum so the babies stayed behind with Otein and Rivka. How cute is this picture of Natalie asleep on Otein?!

After Yad Vashem we went through Hezekiahs Tunnel. Its a man made water system. It was amazing! (Also no kids under 5 allowed, good thing we have the best babysitters around!)

Amazing first two days, more to come!

Our Home and Months 5 & 6

I've been meaning to blog pictures of our home ever since we moved here in November but have been a little busy lately for obvious reasons! So today after our Saturday chores I finally snapped some pictures and wanted to put them on the blog, it's always fun looking at past apartments/homes we've lived in. I love our house. It's in the perfect location for us, we have the greatest ward and I love everything about it.

My babies turn 6 months next week!! How crazy is that??! Life gets a little bit easier every day. We have a routine/schedule now that makes life so much better. They're both rolling around like crazy and are slowly starting to scoot/inch/crawl. I love these babies!

1. How Nathan teaches Sunday school, with a baby wrapped on him! 2. Twins!

 1. Granny came to town! James loves her. 2.James still has weekly physical therapy but is making great progress!

Babies started solids! They weren't the biggest fans at first but they are starting to really like it! We have tried rice cereal, apples, pears and avocado.

Babies at 5 months

Nathan hiked Zion

1, And while he hiked Zion I hung out in St George with my two best friends Kaitlin and Joslin! 2. I got a membership to an aquarium for my birthday. The babies love watching the fish!

 1. Sedona for the weekend. 2. Babies at church (James had a cuter outfit on but had a blowout as soon as we got to church)

 Best friends
Twin life is hard but so rewarding at the same time!
