I cannot believe I forgot to get this posted! I totally thought I had already done this.
Cade got baptized on April 11. He was baptized with 2 other girls from our ward, Emily and Mikayla. It was a great baptism! He was so excited, but I think he really understood how important this was because he was very mature about the whole thing and reverent (instead of his usual bouncing off the walls silliness).
The program was held in the chapel to accommodate all of the family. It truly was a beautiful service. Grandpa Jay gave the talk about receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost. The other 2 girls Cade got baptized with asked their primary teacher to give the talk about baptism. Each family went to the baptismal font separately, which worked out nicely.
Of course, Grandpa Jay and Grandma Cheryl were there. Seth, Courtnee, Taylor & Drew came. Uncle Ian and Aunt Kelsey (fresh off the plane from their wedding in CA), Grandma Cindi, and Uncle Evan were there too!
After the baptism, we headed back to our house for a barbecue. We invited everyone who came to the baptism and those who helped us move in to our new house. There were about 45 people who came and it was fun to get to know some people from our new ward as well as see people from our old ward! The weather was a little bit chilly, but all in all, it was a beautiful day I hope Cade will remember for a long time!
