Brooke’s Blessing Weekend

In our faith, a baby is given a blessing shortly after they are born. Brooke was given a blessing by her dad on Father’s Day. It was extra special because both my dad and John’s dad came to town for this special day.  The blessing took place during our congregation’s Sunday worship service. Afterwards, friends and family gathered at our home for a brunch. I’m disappointed that I didn’t think to get a picture of the whole group who came for this special event. Below is a picture of our family on this day.

Brooke was blessed in the very same dress that I was blessed in as a baby. I hope to continue to pass this dress down through the generations.

We were so grateful that my dad and John’s parents were able to come to town for this event. We had a fun weekend that included going to the Air and Space Museum for the annual “Innovations in Flight” day with our parents and my brother and sister. We got to explore lots of different types of planes.

My sister, my dad, Brooke, David, and I also went on a hike. The weather was amazingly beautiful. My sister carried Brooke in a baby carrier, and Brooke cried for over half the hike haha. The next two pictures I grabbed from my sister’s Instagram.

It was a great weekend and we’re so grateful! While everyone was in town, Brooke officially began sleeping through the night. Previously, she would wake up between 3 and 5 a.m. for a “snack.” Below are pictures of the grandparents who came to visit. We missed Grandma Kathy but we’re grateful we got to see her for a whole month earlier this year.
