RyKer's BaPTism

Ryker was baptized on Saturday. It was such a great day. I was blown away by how excited and ready he was to be baptized. He has been counting down for the past six months. He has been trying really hard to be good the past couple months just to be sure he would be able to be baptized.

I didn't take nearly as many pics as I should have. The day was so busy and seemed to go so fast. He was baptized and confirmed by his dad. We had so much support there it was great. We have such great family and friends in our lives. He even invited some of his inactive friends to come watch him get baptized.
We had a little dinner get together at our house following. It is so fun to celebrate such a great occasion. I am so proud of my little guy. I am still freaking out that I have a 8 year old. He was so meant to be our first kid. He is such a leader and great example for his sister and brother. The day went perfect and he couldn't be happier!! I love you so much Ryker, I am so proud of YOU!!
