It's Great to be Eight!

Braden was baptized on Saturday. It was a great day. Braden asked his Uncle Jon to baptize him. His Dad gave a talk on baptism and performed the confirmation. Grandpa Jan gave a talk on the Holy Ghost. And it wouldn't have been Braden, if he didn't make us laugh. After his baptism, while he was still in the font, he swam a few victory laps. I like the way Uncle Dave said it best, "the swim party that ensued immediately following the sacred ordinance!" Conner so cute in a suit. :o) Uncle Jon thought it would be fun to have a "missionary-style" baptism picture. Uncle Jon, Aunt Ashley, and Aunt Shelby sang "Baptism" and it was beautiful. Here's the family! Afterwards, Grandpa Jan took us to our favorite Saturday lunch spot, Denny's! There were 21 of us on this big day, and Grandpa thought it would be a great idea to have the kids sit at their own table. They were really good, but I think they ordered two meals, a soda, and an ice cream shake each!
