Brooklyn's Baptism

Brooklyn was baptized on May 23. We were blessed to have family come from all over to support her on this day. Thank you so much! We love you all! I was super lame about taking pictures... but here are a few.

It's Great to be Eight!

While Josh and Zack were at the Father's & Son's campout, I took Brooklyn and some of her friends to the new Hannah Montana movie... then back home to paint toenails. It was a fun little birthday party.
Birthday morning!

My mark of a wonderful friend is when you don't see them for ages and when you do... it seems like it was just yesterday that you did! That sums up my college roommate, Kate. We have lots of fun and incriminating memories... and was great to reminisce! She was down with her sister and a few of their kids for a couple of Disneyland/Beach days and made some time to come visit!

Grand Cayman

Josh had a conference in the Cayman Islands and his mom was willing and able to fly out to stay with the kids so we could go for a few days together! She is a saint... the kids had way more fun than they ever would have had if we were home... but she didn't leave any proof in photos... so here are some of ours!They have a sandbar off the island a few miles where stingrays gather. We went out and swam with them, held them... and kissed them (for 7 years good luck of course!) Josh wasn't so sure of them at first. We haven't developed our underwater camera yet... so maybe more photos will follow.
Isn't this what you're supposed to do on a beach holiday?
Mrs. Large and In Charge... notice the sign says: No Frowning Allowed HERE!! Even if you're chubby!The only picture of us together! Thanks Barbara... it was a nice week away!
