When we were in California in June, Jeff's parents made arrangements to come visit us in August so they could meet Sweet P. We had considered having her baby blessing the weekend of their visit since most of my siblings wouldn't be coming back to Atlanta anyways (they would have just been here for my little brother's wedding). This way we would just have both sets of our parents there and that would be that.
Then, we found out that Jeff's sweet Grandma Finlayson was trying to surprise us and fly out, too! She needed a flying companion, so one of Jeff's brothers was going to come with her. Then, another brother decided to come, too (the soon-to-be-lawyer had to stay home and start school - We missed you, Andrew!). Then, Melanie, Jeff's sister, also got to come!! We also found out that Jeff's Uncle Rick and 3 of his five children (Henry, Emma, and Thomas) wanted to join in on the party as well, so we definitely had to have a baby blessing with all of this family running around.

I do have to say that this was only 3 weeks after Paisley was born and I know I was slightly tired and irritable... and by slightly, I mean extremely. We were pretty boring and lazy hosts. I mean, can you blame us?! We didn't do much, but we did squeeze in some time for the laser and fireworks show at Stone Mountain. It was great! We had about a mile hike, sat right up front on wet grass, had tons of snacks, and put our fingers in Paisley's ears during the fireworks!
|The last picture was right before Brent was told to get down - apparently we don't read signs.|
|They were spraying girls with this technique. Pretty impressive.|
|The difficult task of taking pictures with my dad...|

P.S. We really missed you, Tami, Ellen, Ashley, and the kids!!!!
