The first weekend in August, we finally took a summer vacation! We were really psyched to get away and see our family again. It had been a long time since we last saw them. So, first things first, the Baillio family gathered in Park City starting Aug 3rd. One by one we trickled in until we were all there, minus Aaron and his family :(. We all had a great time showing off our kids, and catching up on plans and events. I just love my family! They're the best.
The baby blessings went really well. Brooklyn was blessed at the condo, with all the Baillio/Barrand priesthood holders participating. It was a great experience. I felt a bit like a ninny since I got all teary-eyed during the singing, but it just added to the experience and brought the Spirit. Hallee's blessing went really well too, especially after a certain individual helped diffuse the cranky baby syndrome Hallee was going through.
As an added bonus, Celeste and I decided to stay an extra half-day to spend more time with my family, and to chat with Joseph and Melinda. So it was an all-out wonderful weekend.
