It's cliche to begin a blog post saying "I don't know where to begin," right?

Well, I'm going to do it anyway. I'm a rebel.

This is an amazing group of people. We all have different stories. Different struggles. But, we come together under the header of God and the same wonderful parents. I am so thankful for parents who have already thought about their legacy. Their purpose. When I think about the most important legacy my parents have made, it would be faithfulness. Faithfulness to God, each other, to us, to our church.

Seeing as it had been almost 5 years since our last family picture, and there have been lots of additions made to the family, we figured it was time to remedy that. The big family shot was taken with the assistance of my camera, and an obnoxious toy. A 4, 6, and 18 month old don't respond so well to "cheese!"

Without further ado, meet the Flinstones...ahem, the Blakes.

Sorry I'm so cheesy...I promise I'll be better next time.

I think it goes without saying, but aren't my parents the cutest? Mmhmm. They are.

So happy that we made time to squeeze these in between feedings, nap time, bed time, and all the festivities!
