Zack's big day!


I feel like we've hit a milestone as parents. Sunday was Zack's baptism. We did it right after church, which was the perfect time for us. We were already dressed and ready, so we didn't have to struggle with getting people dressed on a Saturday night. The kids were all (surprisingly) in a good mood after 3 long hours of church.

Zack had asked Coleman to give the opening prayer, which he did a great job at. Then he asked me to give a talk on baptism and Cameron's mom to talk about the Holy Ghost. He was very cute the whole way through. He wasn't nervous at all and he paid attention to everything. After he was baptized, I went in to help him get dressed. As I was helping him, I asked him how he felt about everything, and he told me that he didn't really like all the attention to be all on him. I had to laugh and just say "I'm right there with ya!"


He wasn't a real big fan of the white jumpsuit, but I loved it and thought he looked really cute in it.

We are so proud of him. Although it was kind of expected of him to get baptized, I know that he has a great knowledge of the gospel. He really enjoys the stories in the scriptures and he is learning to appreciate them and how they relate to him in his life. He is a great example to me and his whole family.

We are proud of you Zack and love you very much!

Congratulations Zack! How exciting for you all.

So Steph, RJ's is right down the street from the Kirtland temple. You'll pass the temple on your right, then pass the high school and end up at a brown strip mall on your right. RJ's is there along with a Subway and I think a post office or a liquor store or something. I hope you like it since I totally talked it up!

Congrats to Zach! I can't believe that he's already baptized... seems like time has flown so quickly. I love the announcement! - SO cute! Caleb will be baptized in Nov, so it's always cool to see great announcement ideas - also such a fun pic in front of the temple door.

What a BIG day for your whole family!! Do you feel old to have a 8 year old? I think in 18 months when Easton gets baptized I am going to feel officially grown up!
