Abby's Baptism

I wish I would have posted this sooner, but alas, blogging has been put on the back burner while there are things like swimming, exploring, bike-riding, and more swimming to be done this summer.

Abby was baptized on May 22 and it was wonderful. What a perfect day! We had so much family here (thank you to you all for traveling so far)! Abby was beautiful and prepared and calm. The program was great with grandmas, grandpas, aunts and uncles speaking, singing, and playing instruments. I was so moved as I looked around that room and saw all of the amazing people in our lives! We are so blessed to have wonderful family and friends that are such great supports to us and our children. Abby couldn't have been happier! We are so proud of you sweetheart and know that this is a decision that will bless your life forever!

We went to the Portland temple before her baptism to get some shots of her in her dress. Man, I love this girl!

Don't Give Up On Us!

Because it is 11:30 p.m. and I have a new goal to get to bed by 10:30 and because I have cleaning and dishes and various projects that I should be working on and because I have eaten triple berry crisp for breakfast and lunch for 2 days in a row, I decided to update our blog that I haven't even looked at for 5 months! Perfect logic, right? I have so many pictures from Abby's birthday, end of school, trip to Florida, trip to Utah, Abby's baptism, etc. that need to be posted. But it's all seeming a bit overwhelming right now so I thought I would throw on a few from our most recent trip to Utah and make a new goal to get back into blogging. We missed you little blog and if I can keep my kids inside long enough to get on the computer once in a while, I will pay you more attention!
