Maxwell’s Baptism

We had Maxwell baptized in Lexington, Kentucky with our good friends, the Mitchells. Presley, our 10month old Goddaughter was being baptized the same weekend and Matthew and Jenna are the Godparents to Maxwell so a double baptism was perfect. We were able to spend the weekend together that included lots of pool time, food and good times. Their oldest daughter, Saylor, is a few months younger than John Thomas and they had the best time together! I loved watching them!!

Cousin Fun

My sisters and nephews came to spend a few days with us while my husband was traveling. I loved having them here. It really made me wish we lived closer together, especially for the boys. We probably only see each other twice a year but John Thomas adores his cousins (and I know Maxwell will also).  We had fun activities planned while they were here but I was surprised how long it took it to get ready to go anywhere! We all had a great time until I came down with mastitis at the end of the week. Between my working out and trying to keep up with everyone I overdid it and paid for it!! I am so thankful my sisters were still here one day so they could entertain John Thomas while I nursed and slept all day!

Some fun from their trip
