Emma's Baptism...

What a wonderful day we had on July 5th! It was Emma's baptism day and we are so proud of her. We had lots of family at the baptism and we are so grateful to all of those who traveled far to get here. It was a fun day! After the baptism we had a picnic with all the family (which I totally forgot to take pictures at).
After the picnic we found a fun little swimming pool and most of Dave's sisters and their kids all geared up for swimming and we had a great time. We are sure thankful for family and for their support. Also, we are so happy that Emma was prepared and ready to be baptized. When I was helping her change out of her wet clothes after the baptism she said, "I feel so good!" Emma wrote in her journal about her experience and the first line of her journal reads, "...on one good Saturday I got baptized." It was one good Saturday!

I love reading your blog. You always seem so happy. You have beautiful kids. Sorry I didn't catch up with you this visit to Idaho but with my dads news, things took a new priority. Next time.
