Miles' Blessing

Sunday was Miles' baby blessing.  It was a special and sweet day for Miles, and we are so grateful both of our parents along with close friends and family could be here for it! 

Miles wore Brett's baby blessing outfit just like Owen did.   

He's one chubby and happy little baby!

I kept telling Owen that day was Miles' special day.  We had a little brunch with family afterwards and as Owen grabbed a muffin (which he called cake) he started singing "Happy Day" to Miles.  I think he thought it was his birthday.   He's such a sweet big brother {most of the time}.

I feel an extreme amount of gratitude towards my Heavenly Father for blessing me with the little boys he has.  I was reminded how grateful I am to be a member of the church, that our children will have the knowledge of the gospel, that families are eternal, and just grateful that Miles could receive such a special blessing from Brett to give him guidance and direction in this life.

Alamosa & 10 Year Highschool Reunion

In mid-July we drove home to Colorado for my ten year high school reunion.  There wasn't a great turn out at the reunion but I got to see some of my good girlfriends which was fun.  Friday night was just a mingling at a local Brewery. We got to leave the kiddos with my parents and enjoy a night out together.

 Saturday there was a family BBQ in the park, and Saturday night was a dinner at one of the best Mexican restaurants in town. They serve a Mexican buffet which Brett looooved.

Just before the bbq in the park. I love this picture because Brett looks so preppy and young:)

We spent some time visiting great Grandma Sally.  Owen loves here marble coaster.  She is the only grandma I've got left on my side so I love every little bit of time we get to spend with her.  And I'm so glad she got to meet Miles.

Saturday morning we went to an Air Show and Owen was in heaven.  He talked about airplanes for days.

I love this picture...Owen on Brett's shoulders watching the planes.

We crammed a lot of fun into two short days and can't wait to be back in Alamosa when Justin get's off his mission in just a couple of weeks.
