Drew's Baptism

 Saturday, April 12
Seaside, CA

Things I would like to remember about Drew's baptism:

- Our family that came: my parents and Justin's brother Paul came for the long weekend; Linus and Sara's family flew in just for the day (pilot's perks!); my cousin Chad's family came over from Palo Alto; Justin's uncle Wayne and his wife Marian were so nice to come from Mountain View.

- My dad's great talk on The Holy Ghost. Drew will never look at a mouse trap the same.

- Friends that participated. This was a stake baptism with just one other boy, so they divided up program responsibilities. Drew chose Owen's good friend Cal to say the closing prayer. It was a sweet prayer. He left the musical number up to me, so I asked the Carson kids from church to sing "I'm Trying to Be Like Jesus."

- Drew's cute face throughout the whole thing. So sweet during his baptism and confirmation. And happy holding his new scriptures.

-  My mom filling out his baptism book with him afterwards on the way to his baseball game.

Things I would like to forget:

- The craziness leading up to the baptism (Owen disappeared with friends for way too long).

- That I forgot to bring Drew a change of underwear and a towel. He got to go commando after the baptism and he and Justin shared a towel.

Straight from the baptism, Drew wanted to go to his baseball game. He made it for the last couple innings and got a great hit.

Then we had pizza at the park right there (George Washington).
