What a special weekend for our family! On Saturday Carson was baptized (on my birthday!) Weston took me out for my birthday date on Friday night so we could make Saturday all about Carson. In our church we believe that at age 8 you can be held accountable for your choices. You have the opportunity to choose to be baptized at that time. Carson was so excited to be baptized by his dad and confirmed by his Granddad. There were 2 other kids from our ward who were baptized the same day, and it was so fun to share this special time with such wonderful families. Afterwards we had our family over for a BBQ and pool party! All of the kids (and dads) had a blast swimming and doing tricks on the trampoline.
For our BBQ we had burgers,hot dogs, fries, and fruit salad. For dessert we had “Great to be 8” powdered donuts, cupcakes, and “baptized” strawberries (dipped in white chocolate.)
On Sunday morning we had Greyson’s baby blessing. He was wide awake the whole time and didn’t let out a peep. He is such a calm, sweet baby. It was the perfect way to cap off our special weekend. I’m so grateful we have family that live close to help us celebrate these milestones in our boy’s lives!
