I can't believe Sam is 8! I'm so proud of his choice to be baptized. He is a great kid with a lot of spunk. He asked his Uncle Joey to baptize him. It was a fun weekend with family. We're so grateful that most of my family was able to come up to support Sam in his decision to be baptized. His Aunt Kristy is in NY so that was a bit of a journey, but we missed her. The kids loved all the cousin and grandparent time. Friday night started with a night at the pool and then just hanging out in the hotel for a while. On Saturday morning Sam was baptized then we headed to our house for lunch. The kids played and the adults visited. Totally low key. It was great! Then we headed to the dairy for some yummy ice cream. Unfortunately, the everyone had to head back to Utah but we had fun while they were here and are always anxiously awaiting the next trip to Utah to see everyone. I'm thankful for their willingness to drive up here for the weekend. We're especially thankful for modern technology that allowed Steve's parents, who are serving a mission in Arizona, and his sister, who was unable to come up due to choir concerts, to be able to watch Sam be baptized. Thank you all for the love and support you showed to Sam on his special day!

Have I mentioned how much I love that Steve is into photography? We were horrible about getting family pictures taken until he started doing it himself. Now we've done them 2 years in a row. That may not seem like a big deal but for us it's pretty amazing.

I can't believe the summer is over and these kiddos are back in school. What's even harder to believe is that I have a kid in middle school- Yikes! I think I had a harder time sending Chris to 7th grade than I did sending him to kindergarten :)
These 2 get to hang out with me this year. Garrett gets to enjoy one more year at home and is excited to have more mommy time. He also liked sleeping in and getting to stay in his pjs. Becca's a long way off from school but she's getting so big. She just got her second tooth and loves chomping on anything in her path.

Every summer the kids get to spend a week with Grandma and Grandpa Anderson. They love it! It's tradition for the kids to go fishing and go get hawaiian ice. This year they also got to go watch Monster University at the theater, they went to the splash pad and had a water party with cousins, had a couple movie nights with cousins, went shopping with grandma and grandpa and went to the Pioneer Day parade in Spanish Fork. This year the parade was a little more special because Joey and Chris got to be in it. They marched as the Army of Helaman. There were actually about 2,600 boys in the group. They dressed up and carried staffs that they got to decorate. Unfortunately, Steve and I missed it but we saw a video of it and heard how great it was from everyone. I'm so glad that Chris got to participate in it and hopefully that made the story of the stripling warriors a little more real for him.
