A Special Day

Caden turned 8 the first week of September and was baptized on September 6th. It was a special day, full of fun and excitement. Grandma Debbie and Grandpa John flew all the way from Florida to be there. Great grandparents and Aunt/Uncle drove down from Tacoma, Washington. The day started with the first soccer game of the season. Then we had a family birthday/BYU game watching party. The baptism took place at 5pm followed by a big family dinner at Cade's favorite pasta restaurant. It was a busy and memorable day all about Caden, family and the things that make us TRULY happy.Caden and his Dad before the baptism

Caden got to share his special day with another little girl in our ward...fast forward 15 years - do you see engagement photo potential like I do?

Our wonderful, supportive family...this isn't even all that was there.

Caden shows off his new scriptures, complete with his name imprinted.

I'm still trying to figure out how my baby got to be 8 years old! Caden is such an awesome kid. He is a wonderful "oldest" brother, always so cool and always trying to do the right thing. He is such a great example to me, his dad and to his younger brothers. I am so proud of him and love him to death! I hope his baptism day was one he will never forget.
