fishing trip

This past weekend we took Baby Calvie on his very first fishing trip.  Jake rigged us up two poles and within minutes we had a couple bites.  When we pulled our first one in, Cal wasnt quite sure what to think of this new creature that he had never before seen.  He ended up loving it!!!!
 I love Jake's intense face and Cal's "are you kidding me" face :)
All in all, Cal's first fishing trip was a fun success!

Blessing day

On July 8th we finally gave Calvin a blessing. We waited until July so all my family could be there. Jake joked that Cal would be old enough to give his own blessing...but we are glad we waited. Everything turned out perfect!! It was such a special day. Jake gave a beautiful blessing and Calvin was an angel. I was told by my brothers and others in the circle that during the blessing Calvin tried doing sit ups and played with his shirt showing off his cute belly to all the men. Afterwards we had everyone over to our house for a brunch. It was such a great day!
