Our Summer Adventures:

This summer has been full of adventures, both good and not so good. It started with Brad getting a new job, starting the house hunt, finding a house, Tamara getting very sick with a kidney infection and stone, having our little baby Becca, packing and almost moving, a flooded house, new house hunting, surgery to remove Tamara's 9mm kidney stone, more house hunting, finding a house, moving into the Owen's home until we could get into our own, having a family reunion at Jordanelle, Ryan and Makayla going to Seven Peaks with their aunts Mari and Bre, the stomach flu hitting 11 of the 13 people living in one house, going to Lagoon, Ryan starting school, closing on the home, and finally this week moving into our new home. Wow, what a ride it has been!!! Through it all we have had so much fun and have been grateful for our blessings.

Rebecca's Baby Blessing

Rebecca Dianne Bell blessed by her daddy on July 15, 2007

Blessing Day:
We blessed Rebecca when she was only 2 1/2 weeks old on July 15th. Brad's family was in town and we didn't want to make them drive up to Utah from California twice in one month. It was a wonderful blessing. Rebecca is such a good baby that she didn't even need her binky up in the circle with her. Here are some pictures of that day.

Nana gave Rebecca a bath

All of our beautiful children....looking good at the same time. Miracles never cease.
