Utah Part 2 (Harper's blessing)

Sunday we had the opportunity to bless Harper in my mom and stepdad's ward. We had decided to do her blessing in Utah since we both have family in Utah that hadn't been able to meet her. Plus our ward building right now is under construction (there's no air conditioning in the chapel) and many of our friends have moved or are gone for the summer.

Tom gave Harper a wonderful blessing. Afterward we got together with everyone at my mom's house and had a chance to visit. This post will be mostly pictures, but I don't want to leave anyone out. We were so grateful to have so many family members there.

This is from before the blessing. Harper loves her Uncle Chase.This is me, Harper, my mom, and her mom. Harper was asleep.Here we are after the blessing. Harper was so beautiful and she didn't even cry.Here are my maternal grandparents with Harper:And my paternal grandparents:And here we are with Tom's dad and grandpa. Somehow we didn't get one with his grandma Pat or one with my step-grandparents. We'll have to do that on the next trip.Here are a couple of my sisters and a few of my cousins:And here Harper and I are with my sister and her daughter Hailey:And my sister Kara with Harper:We got a picture with my mom, my grandparents, and some of her siblings:Coincidentally, my mom and her two sisters were all wearing black and white:And here's my mom with Harper. I love this picture.
