Aubrey's Baptism

Aubrey was baptized on Saturday, August 18, 2012. 

I wasn't very good about taking pictures, but we had great support from friends and family! Friends from the Parkwood Ward came, including the Percivals, the Gibsons, Tonya Smith & girls, Richard & Joan Banks, Daphne Lynch and probably some one else I'm forgetting. (I shouldn't get so far behind blogging!!!)
Greg & Kelly came and brought Grandpa Lloyd. I was so glad he could stand in the circle when Aubrey was confirmed.

Brother and Sister Banks were Aubrey's teachers in the Parkwood Ward.
Aubrey got to share this special day with her sweet friend, Katie.

We were touched to have so many friends and neighbors from our new ward there, too. It was a beautiful day and we are so proud of Aubrey's choice to be baptized and become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!

Lydia is 6!

Our unstoppable Lydia turns 6 today! She's an amazing, spunky, bright, determined little soul and we are so blessed to have her in our family.

She is loving kindergarten this year. Her angel of a teacher is Mrs. Willson, who also lives in our neighborhood. She is learning more every day and is always looking for adventure. Lydia is so adventurous and social- we sometimes have to track her down as she plays from house to house in the neighborhood, which is FULL of fun playmates! She loves to ride her bike and even rode a big girl bike to school today with Jenna! She's taking 6 by the horns!

Instead of a big party, she got to take two friends to Farm Country at Thanksgiving Point yesterday. The weather was perfect and we had so much fun!
 Eliza, Ava, Emmi (Lydia's long-lost twin in every way) and Lydia posed with the cow for a sec.

 Lydia had a turn all to herself, since the biggest horse already had a ride the first time. She waited patiently to get what she wanted. This is how she does things.
 The wagon ride, with Bob and Barney pulling the wagon. They girls each had a pink bandana.

 We went to the ice cream parlor where everyone enjoyed the tall stools & bubble gum ice cream!
We also made a quick stop in the candy store & then went out back to enjoy a treat. The girls did a few musical numbers in the courtyard for good measure.

What a fun adventure it is to know Lydia! We sure love you, Lyds!!
