California, July 4th, and Katie's Blessing

I am SO behind on blogging. Sorry!
Some quick updates:
Brad started working at a company called Kynetx about 2 weeks ago (wait, 3 weeks ago?) and he seems to really like it.
They basically develop web applications.
The main office is in Lehi, so Brad, along with me and Katie, went down there last Thursday so Brad could meet all the main people and whatnot.
We arrived in Utah on Wednesday night and stayed with Jenna and Travis.
On Thursday while Brad was at work, I hung out at my Aunt Kathryn's house.
She has an awesome pool so I went swimming for a bit while Kathryn watched Katie.
I ended up getting pretty sunburned. Oh well!
Around 4:30, I picked up Brad from the office, which is about 10 minutes from Kathryn's house, and we went back and swam some more and had dinner with Kathryn and her kids, as well as my cousin Teresa and her family.
On Friday, Katie and I joined Brad for lunch at the Kynetx office (Yum, Jimmy Johns!) and after lunch we started driving down to California!
We spent the weekend down there and it was really nice.
My sister Laura and her family was down, so we got to spend some time with our nieces that we haven't seen in a LONG time.
Saturday, my mom had a little baby shower for me.
It was mostly just snacking on crackers and cheese and meeting the new baby and just hanging out with a lot of the women from our church that I grew up with.
Nicole was also able to come and it was SO great to see her!
We all had banana splits and opened some presents and then people slowly trickled out.
Later that night was a ward 4th of July party at the church, which was lots of fun.
My mom did a great job putting it all together.
Sunday, Katie was blessed!
She looked like a little angel in her blessing dress.
So precious. :)
Sunday night we all sat outside and lit fireworks and just had a good time.
Oh, and also on Sunday my brother-in-law Ben had a little photo shoot for Katie.
There were a lot of pictures, so he only touched up a few of them.
I've posted those at the bottom of this post.
The first two pictures were photoshopped by me, so they don't look as great. Lol.
Monday, I went and saw Eclipse with my mom and then we went shopping with my little sister.
Brad and I left for home on Tuesday morning and got back into Rexburg around 12:30 a.m.
It's nice to be home, but I always miss California the second I leave.
Good thing we'll be back down there in September to go to Disneyland for my birthday. :D
