This past Sunday, July 6th, David blessed Tyler. It was a beautiful day. (Besides church being at 9:00 and I barely made it there with the baby for his own blessing). I was touched to look up and see so many men in my family who hold the priesthood and were able to be a part of it. I wasn't sure what I wanted him to be blessed in. I didn't wan't anything too girly or too old fashioned, but I wanted it to look nice. My mom ended up making him his darling little outfit, and because of David's request she added the bowtie at the last minute, even though I didn't want it. But...I am very lucky to have such a talented mother who takes time to sew things for all of us. Sunday night, we had both our families over for a Hawaiian Haystack Celebration. It was so much fun to have soo many people in our backyard....we're thinking at least 40-50? We are so lucky to have so many of our family members close to us. What a wonderful support system David and I have as we raise our children here. What a special day for our family. I can't believe he's almost six weeks old already.

Congratulations Leanna and Dave! You guys look so happy, and your girls are getting so old. Welcome to the world of three children, it keeps us busy. We would love to hear from you guys. Looks like things are going well. John had one more year of dental school but has decided to specialize so now we are looking at 3 more years. Take care.....

Hey! So glad you added the tie! Both Nathan and Matthew wore the same out fit, and it had a tie too! So cute! It even looked very very much like Tylers! Weird! We just love him and I was so glad I got to hold him again! Guess I will have to wait until August to see him again! I hate living this far apart. love you
