A Total Harding Weekend

What a cute family!

Cute Father/Son moment

We just had one of the best weekends in a long time. Ben's brother, Mat, and his wife, Britney, adopted a little girl, Lily Sue. She was born 5 days before Bennett and is the cutest little girl ever. Their adoption was finalized last week and they were sealed together in the Salt Lake Temple on Saturday. I can honestly say it was one of the sweetest and most wonderful experiences I've had in the temple since my wedding day. There is no denying the spirit when it let's you know that your family is and can be yours forever. I was just bawling the whole time. I was so happy for them and so awe struck at what a good girl Lily was. It was like she knew what was going on. She was calm and happy, like she was letting everyone else know she knew she was where she was supposed to be. I hope Mat and Brit don't mind me sharing that, I just can't get over how special it was and how grateful I was to be a part of it. That Sunday was Lily's blessing and it was a great meeting. Then, all the little boys got a special treat. The lunch was held at the Tremonton Fire station. Every other word out of Parker, Dalton and Wilson's mouths was fire truck! Uncle Mat (hope this doesn't get him in trouble either) snuck the boys into the garage to see all the fire trucks and the new ladder engine. Pretty soon the whole family had congregated there for pictures! These pics are courtesy of Kay, but they are too cute not to share. It was just a great weekend and it was fun to see the whole family on such a wonderful occasion! Yeah, Lily is now a Harding, whether she likes it or not!
