Happy Father's Day!

Happy 1st Father's Day to the most incredible father! I always knew Aaron would be a wonderful dad and it is so great to watch him in action. Preston loves him so much and he is so lucky to have such a strong, kind and loving example in Aaron.

Also, Happy Father's Day to both of our dads. We love you and Preston love his Grandpa's!

Meeting Cousin Luke

We were able to be in Alamo the weekend of Mother's Day and I prayed the whole time that Lyndsey would have her baby while we were in town so we could see him. Instead, she went into labor during our mother's day dinner and we had to leave shortly after her and Matt left to the hospital to come back to Roseville. A week and a half later, Preston and I drove down to meet baby Luke.
He's so tiny!

Luke looks so small next to Preston!

Preston was happy to see his Grandpa, too!

Don't mind the drool...

He's not so sure about it.

"I'm so glad when Daddy comes home"

Preston was so happy to see Aaron when he got home from work.

Preston's Blessing

On May 2 Preston was blessed. We were so lucky to have much of our family here for the event. Preston was quiet during the whole blessing, putting all of Aaron's fears to rest. Aaron performed the blessing and it was so beautiful.

After the blessing we went back to our apartment clubhouse for lunch. Aaron's Aunt Janice (sitting in the chair in the first picture) made an amazing fruit salad, his cousin Amber made delicious potato salad and cookies, my mom made homemade rolls, pasta salad and a green salad and then Aaron's mom and I took care of the cake, meat and cheese platter and drinks. Everyone helped so much and the food was to die for. THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Preston loves his Uncle Trevor

It was truly such a wonderful day.
