Even More Pictures From our July Activities

There were so many pictures from the family reunions in Oregon and our visit to Lissa and Jason in Texas that I had to post more pictures. As promised I started out with a picture of Daniel with his amazing mother, Krystal.
Me with my mother and sister. Me with two out of three of my daughters.

Garrett and Krystal went out to eat while I babysat Daniel. I took him out to swing and he really loved it. I even got him to laugh.

We also spent a morning with Kent's side of the family in Vancouver, WA. Below you'll see that Kent always finds a project to do when he's at his mom's house. Russ and Tyler were his lovely assistants.

Here's a shot of the Carson (and a Lee) men--the first time Daniel had met most of his great-uncles.

A four-generation shot with Kent's mom, Kent, Garrett and baby Daniel.

Garrett, Krystal and Daniel with the new car they bought in Oregon. They were on their way to drive the seven hours to see Krystal's side of the family.

And now for the visit to Texas--

July 24th was Savannah's blessing day. I had been there since the 7th of July, but Adri and Kent flew in just for the weekend. Kiera was happy to get some extra attention from Adri and Grandpa. Here's Savannah on her blessing day, lying on a quilt made by her great-great grandma.

The girls.

I made the blessing dress while I was in Texas since I didn't have time while I was home. It was intricate and time-consuming, but it turned out well.Kiera liked to sit with me while I was sewing. Hopefully everyone has linked over to Lissa's blog to see the picture of Kiera and me sewing together.

Such a PRECIOUS family!!

Kiera is modeling a dress I made for her mommy. Lissa wore it when she was about five. Kiera is only three but she can fit into it, though it's a little big. I put this picture in so everyone could see how long Savannah's hair was when she was only two weeks old!! We had so much fun being with our kids and grandkids in July; it was hard to come back to Virginia.
