March/April 2012

In March...

Emma took another round of ballet classes with my friend Emilee Tikalsky as teacher.

We went GREEN to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Here's the proof.

Emma's best friend Reagan had her birthday party at Pump It Up (where Uncle Joel now works). 

The kiddos enjoyed a somewhat wet Easter Egg hunt put on by our HOA.

The Easter Bunny even showed up for the big event. (Notice that John is not in the picture. He's more inclined to watch from a distance when it comes to large, unfamiliar characters.)

Most importantly, a very special cousin turned 8 years old. We went up to New Jersey for her April baptism. The girls were happy to see each other. 

As were the boys. (Spencer came in the later shift with Gpa and Dad, leaving after school ended. Emma, John, and I made up the advance party along with Laura and Gma).

That reminds me...John and Laura were getting some wiggles out before we started our long drive, resulting in what is one of the cutest pictures ever. Must be shared. We love Aunt Laura!

There were many friends and ward members at the baptismal service. 

Here's the cute Pascual family.

At Maddie's request, Spencer played a special musical number on the piano (a simplified Primary song), and Emma and I gave a talk about baptism.
Thanks for inviting us to share your special day, Maddie. We love you!
