A Special Event

An added bonus to my Seattle trip was attending the baptism of my nephew, Michael's, oldest son. It had been a long time since I had seen my sister and her family, so this was a great way to end a wonderful weekend. On Saturday, February 27th, Phil, Jon and Jacob met Jackie and I where Highway 18 intersects I-90. I transfered vehicles for the trip to the Federal Way Meetinghouse.
Linda and I with her latest Granddaughter... Mary and Jason's daughter, Sabrina.

Jon with his Aunt Linda.
Father and son before the baptism. There is such a sweet understanding between these two.
A family picture: Michael, Christina and sons. The baptismal service itself was so spiritual and uplifting. Christina and Mary gave inspiring talks prior to the baptism. Michael, Christina and a family friend sang. There were many family members there and it was such a joy to be in attendance.

There were too many in attendance to be accommodated at Michael's, so permission was given to gather in the Primary room for pizza and cake after the service. It was such a happy gathering. I enjoyed my family members so much and made new friends of others in attendance.

Ahhhhh this brought tears to my eyes!! The day would not have been complete without you. Thank you SO MUCH for coming and for making our day so special. I had so many spiritual experiences that day and it will be an occasion I forever hold special in my heart. Seems like just yesterday you were in attendance at our wedding (and then we were at Jon and Kreanna's a few months later) and now we have baptized our oldest. I feel so blessed. I love you and I'm so happy you guys were there... just wish Kre and Aleigha could have been there too!
