Shepard's Baptism

It felt like a long wait through the cold winter months for the water in the pond to get warm enough...  but we were finally able to do Shepard's baptism a couple weeks ago on Memorial Day weekend.  It was a very special day!  We can't think of anything worth celebrating more than when our children choose to follow the Lord! 
Just about every special event with our family comes with a cookie cake! :)
This time we used the south pond and it was a great choice for the baptism.  John shared a few words with everyone and then baptized Shep...  such a precious time!

Here's our family right afterwards...

And a picture of the whole group that was there to share Shep's special day...  (except Paul Barker who was kind enough to the photo).

After a burger cookout, it was time for the cookie cake!
("Shepherd" is spelled wrong...  I think we probably got the decorator confused with our spelling of Shepard's name. :)  Oh well...  gives it character!)

And in case you are wondering, my Dad has a broken foot... so we toted him around in the golf cart. :)  I'm so glad he was able to come!
