We capped off our fun 4th of July weekend with Landon's blessing on Sunday, July 5. We decided to do a private family blessing this time instead of doing it in our ward because most of our family was already up in the SLC/Provo area, and it was easier for us to come to them rather then having them all come down to us. I was a little bit worried about having it be less formal this time and not feeling like an actual baby blessing, but it ended up being very special. We were able to arrange to do the blessing at Jon's parent's church after the block ended on Sunday, and it was nice not having to sit through an hour meeting afterward. It was made even more special by the fact that we had so many of our family there to participate. We were lucky to have all of Jon and I's surviving grandparents there (we only have three left between the two of us). After the blessing we all went over to Jon's brother Loran's house and enjoyed some tasty grub in their backyard. It was a great day and we are so appreciative to everyone who made the effort to come!
