Joe's Baptism

Joe was uber excited for his baptism, only two months after he turned eight. All of his cousins came down to see him. It was a crowded but very happy house!

Elijah just couldn't stay awake for the whole baptism. But sometimes those catnaps are exactly what you need to get through the day.

After the baptism, we all hiked up Millcreek canyon. When we got to the area where people were jumping off the cliff into the water, Joe climbed right up. He stayed there for a while, just watching other people jump, but once he was confident that it was safe, he did it! Twice!

After that, John and I kind of had to try it. It was that or look like a couple of pansies.

Which we definitely are not!
