Penny's blessing

This is part 2 of my trip out to Idaho.  
We had lots of fun with Evie's little tunnel.  We also discovered that it was not meant for adults.  Adam had a hard time getting through this.
My mom had a try a little later on.  Evie LOVES her grandma and crawled through on top of her part of the way.  You can see her at the other end of this tunnel.
She came around to the other side to see Grandma.
My mom and I saw this little lawn chair at Wal-Mart and we just had to get it for Evie.  I got a kick out of her lounging in it reading a book.
Susannah and Adam were very kind and did Penny's baby blessing while I was there.  We just had it at their house on Friday night.  Since everyone was getting dressed up, Susannah wanted to do some family pictures.  I hope she can photoshop some of these.
I love these folks!
We found a shadier spot to take a few more.
Evie was liking Penny's headband.
They tried a bunch of things to get Evie to smile.  I liked this one.
Here's one with my whole family.
We tried a jumping one like we did a few years ago.  In my opinion we didn't get any keepers mainly because I look TERRIBLE in them.  Believe it or not, this is the best one of me.
Here's my mom and Evie right after the blessing.
Erika's got Penny in this one.  My dad was trying to make her smile.
I tried to get some close-ups of her, but she was getting bounced so they're a little out of focus.
This is my favorite of Penny, but sadly, it too is out of focus.
Susannah made this chocolate mousse cake with Heath bars on top and it was so good!
After the cake picture, I had to come back and get more Penny pics.  She's a cute little thing.  Deej made the dress, my mom made the yellow blanket, and I made her a bracelet and the headband.
I saw Adam out back with Evie.  She was sitting at the little table with him, but I didn't get the camera out in time.
I love this little girl.
Susannah's friend Katie and her family came to the blessing too.  Katie's son is a few months now, but I thought this was a cute picture of them feeding the babies.
This is one of my last days there.  I love that Evie loves to read.  It was hard to leave them and I hope I get to go back soon!
