We had a pre-blessing family barbecue on Saturday night, which turned into an indoor barbecue--thank you Oregon weather! We had it at my aunt's house and we made some delicious food. I would have to say my favorite was dessert though: pound cake with a fresh berry bar including raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, and blueberries.
Here are a few pics from dinner:
On Sunday, July 1, 2012 Miley was given a name and a blessing by her dad. From what I could hear, it was beautiful. Gage wasn't super cooperative and was yelling for his dad during it, so I didn't hear it all. But she looked beautiful in her dress and she was wide awake during the whole thing, but didn't cry. What a good girl. We appreciated everyone who made the effort to come out and support her. Our friends, The Nobles, even made it. It was so fun to see them.
Men who stood in the circle: Shaun Grimmett (Dad), Clayton Curtis (Uncle), Blair Rhodehouse (Uncle), Andrew Noble (Friend), Bill Leader (Friend), Doug Haycock (Bishop).
Now onto the good stuff: PICTURES!
We all met at the church before Sacrament Meeting started to sneak in a few pictures.
This Grammy loves those kids!
I can't believe it had been 4 years since we saw them! Besides having 5 kids, it was like we just saw them yesterday and we picked up right were we left off. We played a few games, but mostly visited and watched all of the kids play together. We are super excited that they are moving to Washington next month so we will only be a 3 hour drive away!
. . . And the kids are officially done with pictures!
It was such a special and fun day!
