Daniel's Blessing Day

Sunday we blessed Daniel, and it is about time since he may have walked up to the podium himself if we had waited any longer! Our families flew from all parts of the country to be here for the event. We are so grateful that they came!!! Daniel started to cry before I handed him to Bryson to give him the blessing, but once he was encircled by his dad, grandpas, uncles, and friends he was calm and quiet. Afterwards we went back to Bryson and my apartment where we grabbed some lunch and then took a stroll through Central Park. The weather cooled down quite a bit from the day before (it was like a suana in NYC on Saturday!), so the walk was wonderful. Everyone had to catch flights home that same day, but we wish they could have stayed longer. It turned out to be just a wonderful day despite some major cramming into our small apartment. I have to thank all of our families for making the long trip out here. We love you! Bryson looking so proud!Shannon, Lauren, and baby AlieThe two gorgeous grandmas

Jen! Great pictures. That's awesome that so many could make it for the blessing. Some day we're going to have to get out there and meet little DC. You know I'm going to call him that! :o)

He's so photogenic. Must get that from you.

I too love the picture of Bryson with his baby. Proud daddy, so sweet!

I will be in NYC September 24-30. Any chance we can get together for lunch or dinner so I can hold that cute baby and see my old friends?
