Ashton's Baptism

This past November, Ashton turned eight years old! We were in Arizona for the Thanksgiving holiday, so we decided to have his baptism then.

So the day after Thanksgiving, we went to a Stake Center in Gilbert and Ben baptized Ashton.

It was a special baptism and there were lots and lots of family there.  We filled up the whole Relief Society Room!  

After the Baptism, we all went to Grandma and Grandpa Reed's house for dinner.  It was a whole lot of fun and really tasty!

We are so proud of Ashton and his decision to get baptized.  He is such a good boy and always makes it a point to read his scriptures every night and say his prayers!

Traveling to the MTC


We left Monday morning the 26th of September to take Jared to the MTC

    Jared, Brian and James 
 in front of the St George Temple.

 Jared was able to meet Jeremy and visit with him for about and hour.
He was real excited to finally be able to meet him.

We had some extra time and went to the Provo river so
James and Jared tried to get each other wet.

3 years before Jared and I spent time throwing rocks in the 
river before John entered the MTC

James and Jared were able to have some bonding time
by trying to get each other wet. It was a fun time.
