Blessing Day

Wow! Did we have a busy weekend or what? First, we had a Wells family reunion at Esquire Park on Saturday. That's my mother's side. It went well and the weather was nice. Only down side was there were these tiny black bugs that were everywhere. They didn't bite, but it was still gross. (I'll include pictures from this event later :)

Ethan was blessed Sunday, August 10th.

No crying and no pooping noises. Hurray! That was one thing I was afraid of, that he would have a mass explosion in his pants during the blessing and the whole church would hear it in the microphone. Thank goodness that didn't happen!

We had 54 family members at the blessing. We took up 4 big rows in the chapel. It was great to have everyone there! Thanks again for everyone coming and supporting us on this special day.

After the blessing we had a little get together. We ate sloppy joes, pasta salad, potato salad, green salad, veggies, fruit, and chips. It was all delicious!

Here's some more pictures of the event:

He is such an adorable little boy, glad so much family could make it to the blessing. We will have to get together next time I am in town visiting my parents.
Cute pictures!
