California Vacation - June 2013

We took a 4-day vacation to California in June. We stayed in a hotel but had access to the Goodman's beach house where the Sherwood cousins and some Goodman cousins were staying.

We celebrated Tayler's 16th birthday at a restaurant called "Slater's 50/50".

At 5 weeks old, Abby started smiling for the first time!

We had a lot of fun being with cousins including the Hess kids (and Megan)! We enjoyed donuts, playing in the sand, boogie boarding, and for some of us - cuddling up under blankets on the beach to stay warm!

Abby's baby blessing

A few weeks before Abby's blessing, I did a search online for blessing dresses so that I could find a style I liked. I LOVED the 2 dresses in these pictures and sent the pictures to Grandma Price to see if she could make something similar.

Grandma Price of course figured it out and made Abby the most perfect dress!

A few days before her blessing, Aunt Alisse took pictures of Abby in her dress. Davis was being blessed the same day (same ward too), so we attempted a photo-shoot with the 2 babies together.

Saturday night before the blessing, we laid out everything Abby would need for her special day. (By the way, Grandma Price made that cute little dress bag too.)

Before church... my cute husband & baby were matching!

After the blessing (Russ did a great job and gave her a very sweet blessing.)

We love our baby girl!

Grandma Price, maker of the dress - with Abby, who wore it so well :)

We went to Grandma & Poppy's house afterward for a combined brunch with the Sherwoods, Prices, and Baldwins. This is our first family shot with Abby in it.

Sherwood Family supporters (missing a few people who left before the picture, as well as Brad & Danielle who were in Spain).

Price Family supporters (missing a few who left early, as well as those who live outside of Arizona)

Blessing Day babies with their mommas :)

Abby was a perfect angel all day. I had stressed a little about keeping her on a certain feeding schedule but she slept through the night from Saturday to Sunday, never fussed throughout the day, and was a happy girl. She must have known what a good day it was!
