We were so happy that G-ma & G-pa, Aunt Cammy, Uncle Ben, Aunt Ellen and most of the cousins could come over to celebrate Tristin's baptism. We had a big BBQ afterwards and it was fun to sit and relax for awhile. The kids played in the pool, jumped on the tramp, roasted Smores, while the babies tried to climb in the pool at least 100 times. It was fun to visit and enjoy the sunshine. Thanks eveyone for celebrating with us!

Today was a very special day for all of us, but mostly for Tristin because he was baptized! We went to the book store and bought him his very own set of scriptures and he was pretty excited to have his own. My heart was so full today as I watched him go into the water and promise to be like Jesus. and I am so proud of him for always trying to choose the right and set an example for others. My little man is growing up and one day he will make a terrific missionary. As we were getting ready for bed and reading scriptures, we were talking about goal setting and how its great to read a little each day- I told him because he's 8, maybe his goal could be to read 8 verses. he said, "But, Mom, I want to learn more..." I smiled and said, "Well read as much as you want, and if you do, Heavenly Father will bless you for it." We said prayers, hugged and kissed goodnight and as I was shutting the door, I turned around and just stood there watching him reading his scriptures. Tears filled my eyes and I thought: he will be a wonderful missionary one day. I love Tristin with all my heart and I couldn't be a happier Mama.
