The One Where Andrew Gets Baptized

IMG_4333 We got up at 5:00 am this morning to be on the road by 5:30!  We stopped in West, TX which is about half way between Dallas & Austin.  We had to “check” out the “Czech” bakery and get some kolaches.

IMG_2366 We got to the church at 9:30, which was perfect timing b/c Lexie & crew got there at the same time.  We were able to snap some pics together before other families got there.

IMG_2381 The Baptism Boy.  We are SO PROUD of you, Andrew!

IMG_2388 He looks so handsome in his white jumper suit.  I love it how he’s clutching his Book of Mormon in all the pictures.

IMG_2395 Since we had about 20 minutes to go before the baptisms started, I went outside w/ Autumn & Jackson so they could run around and burn off some energy.  It was a stake level baptism instead of ward level, so there were 7 kids getting baptized, and 5 of them were from Andrew’s ward.  Let’s just say it was a LONG program!

IMG_2411 We went back to Lexie & Jon’s house and had sandwiches, chips, cookies, red velvet cake, and drinks.  The kids had fun playing hoops w/ Papa.  I was so tired from being up late & then getting up early & driving, so I took a nap.

IMG_2415Andrew got a new set of quad scriptures for his baptism present, and I thought this picture of him & Grandpa Guymon looking through them together was so precious.

IMG_2422 The kids had fun running around the trampoline and trying to stay away from Papa.  Looks like Jackson got too close and he got captured.  We had a nice and relaxing afternoon just talking, laughing, spending time together, and creating memories.

IMG_4339 We finally hit the road b/c we had a 3.5 hour drive ahead of us to get home.  I drove the whole way home b/c I had had a nap.  We stopped in Hillsboro at McDonald’s to get some dinner and to let Autumn run around a little bit.  Mom cracks me up!

IMG_4338 This is what the back seat looked like most of the drive home.  Everyone got in a little snooze.  I’m so thankful that we live close enough to go to important things like Andrew’s baptism.  I’m so thankful for my family & for the Gospel.
