Mariah's baptism day

Mariah chose to be baptized last Saturday.
It was a beautiful sunny day, and many people were there to support her.

It was great to have so many people at our house for the weekend, but can you imagine trying to get that many people showered and ready in time for a 10:00 baptism?!!  We were pretty amazing!

the whole crew - (back to front) Brandon & Ayrial, my dad & mom, Genelle, Ang, Jim & Jacob, Foster, Dave,
Adri, Mariah, Akayla & Landon, Amber & Alex, Tanner
Ambree, Elli, Lexy, Amora, & Anna

 After the baptism (and some naps) we made a picnic and went over to Brooklyn's Playground.
The kids played, the ladies walked, the men messed around.
All kinds of fun!


Lea had so much fun she finally just zonked out

Corina & Adriana

Genelle, Akayla, Landon & Corina

Elli & Lexy

Annalisa & Ambree

Mariah & Amora

Tanner couldn't do much because of his hurt hand

and Ambree just can't keep her hands off Landon!  She just loves him to pieces!
Adri is always doing something funny - see the chaos in the background?
Yeah, I pretty much love it!!

good things:
sweet little Mariah - so grown up
warm days
family all around

I love your big family picture. That's so fun. I wish all my family could get together more often but we are kind of spread out a bit.
