Here in the Northwest, we don’t get that much sunshine. So we have to live it up when it comes. Luckily, our sunshine coincided with an awesome family-party weekend!
On Saturday there was a birthday party for Anna. She doesn’t turn 3 until August, but since we were all together, we decided it would be a good idea. It was mermaid themed, complete with sea creatures, buried treasure, and WATER! Emily went above and beyond to make it a really great party. I think I should have her plan my parties…
The party was complete when Dana showed up and made Magnus his own custom crown.
Grant consented to let me hold him for a little while.
Dana showed off Magnus’s kung fu skills. Matthew bore the brunt of the attack.
We all took advantage of the Guptill’s hospitality. Thank you, Guptills!
Magnus and Grant making big plans for being friends… best friends!
Back at the Jensen abode, Whitney met with a local resident. Go here for the fuller story. Also, congratulations are in order for the Keelers-proper, who are expecting a little boy in December! Whitney will be sure to show him the ropes.
On Sunday, we all went to church in Gladstone for Grant’s baby blessing. Afterwards we returned to the Guptills to hang out. Some attire was more formal than others…
Will, Courtney, and Whitney had to go home eventually. Before they went, we got this picture. Thanks for coming, guys!
This one of the options for the Magnus/Grant album cover. It drops this December. Watch for it
The Guptills made a quick stop in Vancouver to visit friends and came to see us before going back home.
Thanks for coming to visit, you guys! We love to get together with you all!
