I stumbled across this unposted post in my draft box. Since I am trying to catch up over the past few months, I might as well publish it.
Last October Jared and I flew to Seattle so he could get his patriarchal blessing from my Dad, who is a patriarch there. I was an incredibly fast trip, we were only there for 32 hours, but it was wonderful and something worth noting.
Here is Jared with his grandpa. It is very special to be able to get your blessing from your Grandpa. I hope he realizes how lucky he is.
And here is the shot of him with Grandpa and Grandma.
And one with me as well.
Here he is with his good friend and cousin, Michael. There are just six months apart and sad that they don't live closer. But they have a great time when they do get to be together.
Brandon jumped in on this picture. Jared and Brandon have always been great friends. I think that maybe the fact that they both have older brothers has helped them bond together. They always have fun together as well.
And here Laura joined in for one big group shot.
