The next morning, we were going to pick up Dad on our way to the baptism, but he said to go ahead so we headed up to the church. The service was very nice and it was so wonderful being able to be there for it. We try to get to each of the kids' baptisms and deacon/priesthood ordinations. I'm sure we've missed a few, but we've really tried to make all of them as often as we could.

|Dolly had brought these glasses back for Frog from Arizona. She LOVED them! She was so much more receptive to Melon Man and me this time. I was so glad!|
|Scooter - Check me out, Auntie!|
|Daffodil - Never seen it done quite like that before!|

|Uncle Aubie riding some little tiny motorcycle around in the backyard. Honey...you're not supposed to ride on the grass!|
|Yo, Dad, I'm gonna get ya!|
|Yeah, really, I am!|
|Don't think I can, huh?|
And then, they were off! Kurt jumped up and was chasing her all over the yard with water bottle in hand!
He got her pretty good with just the water bottle, but then the real fun happened! He scooped her right up and planted her on the slip and slide!
She was soaked! Then the other kids joined in too!
|Dolly is outta there!|
But, as boys will do, they carried on in getting their dad soaked. And, he was!
But, so was she!
And, then, because Scooter didn't think he'd gotten enough, he added a little more!
|And, of course, can't have a family get-together without the infamous picture of Jen sticking her tongue out!|
Around dinner time, most of us went to La Frontera. There were, I don't know, about 22 of us! It was loud and crazy, but a lot of fun. Crappy cell phone pics...

It was a special but fun day. I am going to miss all these kiddos when we leave to head home tomorrow.
