Lydia's Blessing Day

Today is Father's Day, but the bigger event at our house is Lydia's Blessing Day! It is kind of cool to have them both be on the same day because that also means that both of our dad's are with us to celebrate!
Here's Daddy and Abby getting Lydia dressed, Abby LOVES to help!

After church we had a friend take a picture (my parents had already left). Believe it or not, this is the best shot of the group! The kids (and the bright sun) were not cooperating very well...

Here's our family!

After church we went to my parent's house for a big family dinner. While we were there we took some more pictures of Lydia in her blessing dress. This dress is very special because it was my blessing dress that my Aunt Nancy (my mom's sister) made from the leftover material from my mom's wedding dress! The blanket that Lydia is laying on was made for her by Aunt Nancy also. I love the family connections that they represent!

A few more shots of Lydia with her grandparents...

  And, of course, no trip to G&G Olson's house during the Summer would be complete without a ride on Grandpa's "tractor". The kids love it, and I'm pretty sure that Grandpa does too!
