Finally, we decided on having the gathering at a nearby park and prayed it would be good weather. The morning of the big event came, and the weather couldn’t have been nicer! We felt so blessed. It was nice and sunny...not a cloud in the sky (which was especially a relief since the night before had a nasty storm including large hail balls!!).
Jason gave a beautiful blessing and we were surrounded by many loved ones. With 9 AM church, we met at Discovery (Manila) Park for a brunch right after sacrament (well, and after pictures of course). We had a lay out of yummy breakfast type goodies (thank you Costco!): muffins, donut holes, bagels and cream cheese, fresh peaches, grapes, watermelon, and orange juice.
Thanks, Amy, for taking these great pictures!
Charlie was so cute in his blessing outfit (Uncle Bryan's outfit)!
He looked like a little orchestra conductor! So adorable!
And some shots at the park:
I could not be happier with how everything turned out...thanks to a lot of spontaneous help setting up from the family! The rest of the day I just felt so relieved, relaxed, and content. Charlie was given blessings of a great and righteous life. One down...and how many more to go?
