Baptism Day!

Better late than never right? Its been a crazy, packed but fun filled summer at the Mackey house. I have been quite a slacker when it comes to blogging and have let time get away from me as well as taking pictures of important things! I will try as best I can to catch up with all our moments and as of now, I am making a vow to take more pictures and blog more often!!

Anyway, back to the subject at hand, on Sunday July 5th, our Jacob was baptized! He had been looking forward to this day since he turned 8 in April, but was patient enough to wait until Grammie, Grandpa Paul, Uncle Justin, and his cousin Tyson could come. It was such a special day just for him. He was counting down the hours until it was time asking me every 10 minutes "how much longer"? It was well worth the wait. We had so many close family and friends that came to show their love and support for Jake. It was such a special day that he will remember forever. Thanks to all the family and friends who traveled a long way to be a part of this event, and for all the wonderful gifts that were given to Jake to help him remember the promises he made on this day. We love you all!

(The pictures are not in order, but you will get the idea)

After the baptism, we had everyone over to our house for a little bit of dinner and dessert. ( In this picture, my mom, Justin, and yours truly)

Jake was super excited that the water was really warm!

Kolby was so proud of Jake and was totally excited to see Jake get "dunked".

My handsome boy.

Congratulations to your little man! That is such an important day, and I'm glad he was able to have so many people there to support him.
