Jessie's Baptism

We made a second trip to Darrell and Stacie's the last day of September.  It was Jessie's birthday and her baptism day!  We had a great time there.  The night before we drove up to Lois'.  I went to the Relief Society Broadcast with her and enjoyed a nice meal beforehand.  After the broadcast we chatted a little and then drove up to Darrell's.  We went to church with them again, this time with our kids.  We had been there a week prior, but just Lee and I went to church with Darrell and family as our kids were at Lois'. 

Happy Birthday Jessica and congratulations on your baptism!  We're so proud of you!  As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints we believe in being baptized at the age of 8--the age at which children are accountable for themselves.  Children younger than 8 are innocent and need no baptism.  Read more here at

Cal was stung on his cheek by a wasp right before the group picture was taken. Poor guy.

After the baptism we had a yummy lunch and went on a walk to Duck Weed Pond.

Yes,those are tears coming down Elden's face. He was sad he couldn't hold the toad Darrell found, but immediately cheered up when his turn was granted.

Thanks Darrell and Stacie for all the yummy food and letting us stay overnight! We had a great time and I am so glad you live just hours from us!
