Grant's Baptism and Juliette's Blessing

The last day we spent with Doug and Rachel and the kids was yesterday for Grants baptism and Juliette's blessing. I'm so glad so many family members were able to be there for it! It was a special evening. They included so many people in it. Cousins got to sing a baptism song, Micah played piano, others gave prayers and talks.
That afternoon, Mom and Dad went nuts and bought beautiful dresses for the girls. They were very happy to model them for the camera. Theron in her new dress, and Ella in the one Mom and Dad got her for Easter.
Mira wanted a picture of her holding Juliette. Juliette looks so much like Grant.

Paige (is she adorable, or what?)

Kate (she decided to be happy after pouting about something)

Doug and Grant

Earlier this day, Grant had on his Cub Scout uniform, all decked out and ready to go to a day camp with his cousin, Andrew. He was very excited. He came back later that day, the new proud owner of a pocketknife. He said, "And Dad, I know all the rules about the pocketknife." Too cute.

Rachel, Doug, and Juliette. The bonnet she's wearing is made out of a handkerchief, formed into a bonnet. Rachel had this specially made for her in Brugge. The women in Brugge, Belgium are famous for their lace.

All those who were there (a few of them had just returned from Trek, a reinactment of pushing handcarts over a few days' time. The youth in Utah do this each summer. So that explains why they are wearing pioneer dress, are filthy and sunburnt. They made it just in time to be at the baptism.):

We could not, for the life of us, get Kate to look up. She was in a mood, I guess. But pretty flower on her head, eh?
