Annie's 1st Beach Vacation

Annie, Wes, and I recently went on our first, family of three, vacation. We went to Kiawah Island in South Carolina. It is an awesome place to do absolutely whatever you wanted to do. We road bikes, went to the beach, and relaxed by the pool. Wes played golf at a beautiful course on the ocean. I spent my first Mother's Day getting a massage and then spending time with my two favorite people. This was the kind of vacation we hope to have summer after summer.

Annie's Baptism

I know it was about a month ago that Annie was baptised. It has been a crazy spring but I finally have some pictures to share. We absolutely had the most perfect day. Besides all the rain, almost every one of our friends and family members was there to witness. Annie looked like a porcelain doll and pretty much acted like one, too. We had tried to put her bonnet on before we put on her dress to make sure it fit. She would have none of it. Once fully dressed, however, she wore it perfectly. She knew you weren't supposed to wear a bonnet with your pajamas :). Silly us. We have not taken her to the worship service since she was an infant. I was a little nervous to see how she would do. Girl's got rhythm. She LOVED the music. She would stand up in my lap and lean over the next pew to get a closer look. She bounced up and down to the beat. Of course she pushed Amanda's hand out of the way when they were trying to sprinkle the water on her. She knew it would mess up her hair. I don't blame her. What made it even more special is that our friends Travis and Jenny sang the most perfect song. It wasn't planned for us but it seemed like it was which is all I care about.
