What a Blessing

We have been so busy that I haven't had a moment to post! This one may be a long one, so get excited!

FIRST, We were able to bless Bryson this weekend.


Adam did an incredible job. We are so blessed to be so supported! We had two of my sisters come down and my parents. Adam also had his brother Jarrett and family, our sister-in-law Milka, his parents, and our grandma White, along with lots of really great friends there.



After the blessing we had a small luncheon back at our condo! The weather couldn't have been better! It was a perfect day!


SECOND, My sister Tammy and her husband came down this past weekend a little early to "tour" Page. We decided to take them to the famous Antelope Slot Canyons. My cousins Dennis and Marsha baby-sat Bryson so that we could both go! We have wanted to go for a while, but were waiting on some family to come down to go with. It was well worth the money (though it was a little pricey!) It took about an hour and a half to go through the canyon and back.





After the canyon tour, we met up with my parents and my mom and I came back to the condo, while my dad, the Asays, and Adam went to hike to Horseshoe bend. Believe it or not, this is a very very simple hike ... only about 1/2 mile!



OH We have some great news! Bryson has a new cousin on my side! Marney, my sister had her baby! They haven't told us a name yet, but the last I heard, they were leaning toward Adison. She was born yesterday at 1:20 pm and was 7 lbs. 4 oz 19 inches long. We are so happy for their family. After having 3 boys, Marney finally got her girl! YEAH MARN!

During General Conference I made a little felt quite book for Bryson. It may be a little while until he can use it, but I sure had a great time making it. There are shapes to button on, and the other shapes have velcro behind them.


Last but not least, We have a few more picts of Bryson. We got our family pictures back, so there is a little slide show. Also, Bryson started smiling a few weeks ago! He had his two month check up last Monday and weighs 14 lbs 4 oz. already! What a little chunker! We are finally starting to get the hang of this parenting thing. Bryson is such a joy and I love those sweet cheeks! Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Very Cut! I love the family pics and the quiet book. You will be happy you have it when he can use it!

Heather B said...

CAN HE GET ANY CUTER? He is just so dang adorable!! The quiet book is so awesome, I'm impressed. You might use it sooner than you think. Kalia won't sit still in church, and little books like that save the day! (for 5 minutes at least). And she's only 8 months old. Anyway, way to go. Those hikes look so amazing too. What a beautiful desert.

Mandy, You are so awesome! I love the pictures you posted of your family at the blessing, Bryson and your cute family! You look great, by the way. I love the pictures of the slot canyon, too. Just beautiful. I can't believe how fast Bryson is growing - already smiling! He is soooo cute! I loved the video! Tim says tell Adam hi for him!

Heather Ballard said...

That hike looks beautiful. Maybe I want to come to Page. I didn't realize their is so much to do besides boating. You look so good. Next time you come to Orem let me know so I can come visit you and meet Bryson. Congratulations to Marney for her new baby girl.

Robertson Family said...

Mandy, Bryson is seriously so adorable! Oh, I love his cheeks... he is way cute! I love your family pictures and the felt book. You should go into business girl! It sounds like things are going great. I know the feeling of having a fussy baby. If you need someone to talk to give me a call. But that's awesome that he is doing well at night. You look awesome Mandy!

He is such a cute little chunker! I am so glad we saw him in person, and so glad you had the video of him smiling. Sorry we didn't have room for your parents' stuff...we didn't even check, did we? Also, that pic of you and Adam at slot canyon looks awesome - the background almost looks fake! Could you email me that pic of us at the restaurant? ucso.marian@state.ut.us
