Summer Summer Summertime may be summer here.

Today, it was beautiful. 
Not too hot but perfect for bringing out the new wiggly squiggly sprinkler.

What is better than running through the sprinkler in the summer?

Newest Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

June 4, 2011

Last Saturday Pooh Bear was baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am so proud of her thoughtful choice to enter the water's of baptism. We had many conversations about what it meant to be baptized and about the covenants she would be making. She was very aware of the choice she was making and she could not have waited another day longer!

With sisters and cousins {E-man and Roo}. They came down with Grandma Tina and Grandpa Phil because their Mom {my  super amazing and talented sister} just had super cute baby #3.

 With proud Mom, who is trying hard to hold it all together.

With Dad, he just humors all the insanity.

With Grandma Great {my Grandma Larsen}.

 I snuck a picture during the special musical number, "Father, Do You Love Me?" They did an amazing job.

With Grandma and Grandpa Van Horn and Grandpa Sam. We were so glad that Grandpa Sam could come up from St. George to share in Pooh Bears special day. She will always remember that he was there. She is also wearing the amazing baptism dress that Grandma Tina made for her.

Everyone was invited to our house after for lunch. I am so glad that it was a beautiful day. We set up outside in the SUN! {Thank you sunshine for finally gracing us with your presence.}

Mark and Gordon {totally awesome family friend} smoked several pork shoulders. One word...Yum.

Love IBC Rootbeer and the awesome bottles it comes in. All the kids loved the awesome bottles too.

and the Watermelon

and the cookies {or maybe it was the frosting} I think she ate the frosting off 5 cookies.

8 IS Great!
