Makenna's Baptism Day

What a wonderful day, made even more special by all the family who shared it.

Makenna's cousin Kylie from Arizona just turned eight also. They travelled to Idaho and we were able to arrange to have them baptized together. What a fun memory for both girls! And as it turned out, they were the only children in our stake being baptized in June. It turned into our own family baptism after all. They were blessed to have in attendance Kylie's Abbott grandparents, Andrews grandparents, Robinson grandparents, and Grandpa Mawson, as well as loads of aunts, uncles, cousins, and siblings. We had a BBQ afterward so we could all visit and play. We really are blessed with the best family in the world.

Makenna, you put lots of thought into preparing for baptism. You have a good understanding of the gospel and a desire to follow our Savior's footsteps. I know He is proud of you, and I am so proud of you, too. Love ya, Missy!
