Tyler's Baptism

 I had a lot of fun taking pictures for Tyler's baptism announcement.  
Our family had just spent the afternoon at Bounce N' Slide and it was getting closer to sunset. 
I told Tyler to hurry inside and get on your church suit so we could head over to the church for pictures.  Tyler was in such a good mood and we got some fun shots.  Here are a few of my favorites:
We were in a hurry and I think those red shoes just scream personality with his suit!
Tyler's Baptism Day
Tyler was baptized and confirmed as a 
member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by his Dad.
The Stake Center's water heater wasn't working, so poor Tyler's baptismal font water was extra cold.
He was so brave to get in that cold water and make such a special covenant with Heavenly Father.
We are so blessed to have Tyler in our forever family.
Tyler is growing into a great young man.
Tyler didn't want to have a picture with me.
Grandpa and Grandma Ward (and Aunt Laura) woke up really early to make the drive up from Orem.
They gave Tyler a nice journal and a CTR tie tack.
My Grandma Hallstrom and Uncle Calvin came to the baptism as well.
Two of Tyler's best friends, Beck Susman and Jack Griffiths, came to support Tyler on his special day.
Others that were in attendance at the baptism: Tyler's Primary Teachers, Alan and Wendy McBride, the Primary President, Christi Nazer, Primary Counselor, Jenny Klinger,
Bishop Zeke Susman and his wife, Lacy Susman.
Dennis Livingston wasn't able to make it to the baptism, 
but he was sweet and brought over a nice handwritten card for Tyler.
These boys are hardly ever serious:
We had family come over to our house afterwards for a celebratory lunch.  
We had pizza, breadsticks, pop, carrots, oranges, brownies, and chocolate chip cookies.
We sang, "Happy Baptism Day To You" (to the tune of "Happy Birthday") 
and had Tyler blow out his candle.
Sam and I gave Tyler a very special gift: his own set of scriptures with his name engraved on it 
and a very nice scripture case.
