Summer is ending

(Our first family picture)
We had an exciting last few days...

Seth turned 26 on Friday and we celebrated by going to Tucano's (all the meat you can eat)

Saturday I ran a half marathon with my mom and my sister Tiff. It was one of the hardest things I've done but I had to laugh because along the trail someone had written in chalk "this is nothing compared to child-birth". Although it's been 4 months, I don't really remember the pain, but I'm not ready to do it again, yet.

This summer I have been busy gardening. Here is the biggest zucchini I've ever seen!

I am including pictures from Bowen's baby blessing in June:

Seth blessed on Father's Day at our church. (In the LDS church father's give infants priesthood blessings. Several men put one hand on each other's shoulders to form a circle around the baby and they hold the baby in the middle with the other hand. The father, or another priesthood holder, says a special prayer to give the child both spiritual and physical blessings).

We had a picnic after the blessing, it was a nice day.

Our little cutie

Bowen is getting so big, and we are really enjoying being parents. At his last check-up, about 3 weeks ago, he was 15lb. 2 oz. (92nd percentile) 24 inches (76th percentile) and had a head circumfrence of 16 inches (44th percentile). So he has a small head on a big body, just like his parents.

Bowen's new cousin

Chloe McClintock was born yesterday! She lives in Kansas City so we won't see her for a little while. She is just the cutest little girl. We are so happy for Heidi and Kyle and big brother Luke. It's so fun to have our family growing.
