Caleb's Baptism Day

Caleb's baptism was probably one of the most special days of my entire life. Seeing Brandon and Caleb together in the font was something I want to memorize and keep in my heart forever. My heart was so full of love for both of them it could have exploded. I don't really know how to explain my feelings. If you are a mom who has had a child baptized, you probably know what I mean.

This wonderful day started bright and early with everyone arriving at our house at 9am for the 9:30 baptism. Everyone (except Roger-we missed you Rog!) from both sides of the family was there! This hasn't happened since Aubrey's blessing day almost three years ago.

The baptism was wonderful. Kelly sang "I'm trying to be like Jesus", both grandma's gave talks and the Mathews' cousins sang "I like to look for rainbows" for the closing song. The spirit was so strong through the baptism and confirmation. It was amazing.

Afterwards, we all went to the park and had a brunch.

Afterwards the Mathews' side stuck around and we took our raft out on Salem Pond.

Honestly, is this not the most beautiful thing you've seen in a long time?

It was so relaxing there with the mountains, the crystal pond, the shade, the park, it was wonderful after an emotional morning.

Of course it was followed by Cafe Rio and BYU football in the early evening.

Caleb got new scriptures, a case and a journal from his grandparents. He is so excited about his scriptures and we "scripture chased" for about the next 24 hours. He's gotten pretty good and finding the references!

Caleb is such a wonderful boy. I hope his excitement for the gospel and the scriptures only grows as he gets older. We love you Caleb!
