Baby blessing on the 4th of July

Our family LOVES the 4th of July. What a great day we had with friends and family, to bless Dawson and create memories. (Thanks Becca for taking so many pictures.)

It is still surprising to see a picture of our family. It looks so big.

This picture was a lot of fun to take. (Can you sense the sarcasm?) Too many kids wanting to go and change their clothes already.

Proud papa...

Proud grandparents.

We had to take a picture of all the girls in their 4th of July dresses.

Dawson got to meet Great Grandma Rigby for the first time. This is Dawson's only great grandparent still with us, so of course we had to get the 4 generations picture. We love you Grandma Great.

She still has a way with the kids. Look at that smile

Kaylee is ready to go get wet. We had to stop her for a family picture real quick.

Now we're ready to slip n slide.

This is what Carter wanted to do all day. Oh wait... he wants to do this all day, everyday.

Ready in the outfield to play kick ball.

Lovin some grandpa time.

Ready for fireworks.

What a great weekend. The kids didn't wake up until 10 o'clock the next morning. I'd like to say that we wore them out, but the truth is, they wore us out.

Our new blessing

We have one more Price in the world as of May 28th. Jess was induced that morning and at 4:24pm Dawson Seth Price entered the world weighing in at 7lbs 11oz. and 19 inches long. It was a great day made even better because we didn’t know what we were having beforehand. It was a different and awesome experience to be surprised. Kaylee was definitely shocked that she now has 3 brothers, but still loves being the princess and helping Jess out as much as possible. She’s already talked about how excited she is when he starts taking a bottle and she can help feed him.

Jess did amazing and is feeling well. Dawson is doing great also. He’s eating and sleeping well and is just a total blessing in our lives. It’s hard to believe we have 4 kids and 3 of them are boys. I’ve already started calling them the 3 Amigos. I think they will grow up and be great friends. However, many friends and family have started pointing out a lot of things that I didn’t think about. Each boy will only have about a 6 month gap between when they go on missions. Over a 7 year period we will only have the whole family together those two 6 month periods. Kind of sad to think about, but awesome as well. My co-worker pointed out that I will be doing tons of scouting things, pinewood derby races and father/son campouts. A bit overwhelming, but once again, awesome.

Enjoy the pics. No captions yet, but they are pretty self explanatory. His eyes were more swollen than any of our other kids. So much so that when he would cry, his tears would squirt out like a lemon. They literally flew out of his eyes and would land on his face, shirt, or us. It was kinda sad that we all thought it was cute when he cried. 
