Baptism Weekend

When I started this blog over 4 years ago it seemed like a lifetime before I'd have to post any big event besides trips and the kids milestones. Well here's the first of many to come...
On October 8th Kevin was able to baptize our son, Kollin. Even though I see him every day its crazy to think that I have an 8 year old child.
We decided to have it in Salt Lake where our family is and I'm so glad we did. It was so special to Kollin to have his Grandparents, cousins and Aunts and Uncles there.

After his baptism we went back to Paul and Cindy's home and had some Chick-fil-a catered for lunch! YUMMY!

Then we headed to Park City to spend two days relaxing and swimming with Kev's parents. It was lovely to say the least! There were 6 hot tubs, a heated pool and a few other amenities that we enjoyed.

Khloe ready to go swimming.

They had some activities there for the kids to enjoy too. They got to make necklaces and bracelets.


Kollin and Kooper were in heaven when they saw video games they could play.

Even though it was pretty chilly outside we went out for a few minutes and played some life size chess.

Khloe and I playing Ping Pong. We had to keep our distance from her because she gets a little out of control swinging for that little ball:)

The funnest part were the 6 hot tubs they had. It was soooo nice because they were big enough for all of us to play in together and most of them had a waterfall the kids played in as well. It was about 45-55 degrees while we were there and the hot tubs were over 100 degrees...seriously it was sooooo nice.

The night before we left Cindy made some Sundaes.



It was such an amazing weekend with family. I take it for granted sometimes but I'm thankful that our family is only 3 hours from us. I'm grateful for their support and love that is more constant than anything in this world, its something we can always count on.
