Our eldest son was just baptized, and it was such a wonderful experience. He is such a good boy and a good example to those around him. We were very thankful that both sets of grandparents were able to join us and cousins too! We felt so loved that even many of our friends came to support David as well.
One friend was so surprised that a father was able to baptize his own son. This never crossed my mind that it could be any other way, but now I am filled with gratitude that Heavenly Father has give all worthy men the opportunity to hold the priesthood which means that a father may baptize his own children and bless his own family.
On Sunday we had David confirmed a member of the church and he received the gift of the Holy Ghost. Another blessing of being baptized is having this gift of the companionship of the Holy Ghost always with us to help guide us through life.
I am afraid David wasn't feeling too happy here because he knew his cousins would be leaving soon.
Later, on Saturday, we took our family to play at the beach. For some it was the first time seeing the Atlantic Ocean! What a fun time they had, even with the stormy weather.
Two beautiful cousins getting to ride to the beach together!
Thanks to all those who were able to come, and to those who wanted to come but couldn't. We love you!
