These photos are all out of order.....again. I just can't seem to figure it out, sorry! So here's the real order; Blaine had a birthday, birthday party, family visit, baptism, ward party, beach, award ceremony. Got it? Good!
So here's my sweet sister Becca and I right after the baptism. It was warm and sunny so we're squinting a little bit. They traveled down on Friday and were able to stay until Monday morning - it was so nice to have them here!
Here we are pre-baptism. I was so happy and so proud of my little dude and Mike. It was truly beautiful! Blaine had to get baptized in water that was not warm, but he took it like a man lol. We had a lot of family help out and we're so grateful~
The DeSpains trying not to be blinded by the sun! They did pretty darn good actually. And I'm not sure how Trent ducked out of getting his picture taken. This is the only one I have of him! Anyway, the kids all had such a good time together :).
The boys getting nervous...almost time!
Blaine's b-day party was more hectic and crazy than anything else put together! Glad the kids had a good time, glad it's over haha. It was a spy themed party, we had a little spy training - a scavenger hunt - a secret color cake and lots of kids. Lots.
Blaine and Ethnie post-baptism, they're such good friends!!
Same day, different time. We had a ward party that was tons of fun. We had hay rides, horse rides, archery, horseshoes, marshmallow roasting. And we had a great dinner, yum! Plus, the weather was very pleasant for February and it was great for us to all get out of the house and be together as a family!
This is the only picture I took at the beach....it's of a jellyfish. Woohoo.
My cutie-pie niece, Ida, sipping on some juice :).
Blaine receiving and award for "Caring" at his school. They had a little pinning ceremony and it was kind of adorable!
Okay, well I guess that about sums it up. Can I go to sleep now?
