Part #2 Arkansas

So we made it back to Arkansas again and we were lucky enough to stay in the Gustafson's house while they were on a trip to Minnesota. We spent our time swimming in the pool and playing with cousins. There was also art and talking and running and golf and sweating, lots of sweating. It was a crazy hot week. We had meals together and the kids were just in heaven. 

The highlight of our trip was Carson's baptism. Our sweet boy made the decision to follow the example of our Savior and was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was such a special day. 

Carson with his grandparents. 

Cory and Delaney made the drive up and Sheppard really loved the baptism. And he really loves Carson. 

These two have such a special bond. Aaron performed the baptism and gave Carson the gift of the Holy Ghost. Carson is lucky to have such a wonderful dad who holds the Priesthood and loves him so much. 

Carson was surrounded by so many people who love him. 5 of Aaron's six siblings and their families were all there, plus his parents. My parents made the drive and Cory and his family came as well. It was such a special day. I was filled with so much love for my Savior and for my family. 

Afterwards we all went to Aaron's parents for dinner and swimming. It was such a perfect night. 

Then Saturday morning we got up, cleaned the house, and started the trek back to Austin. We were beyond happy to get home! After putting the kids straight to bed we unpacked the whole car and bags and then we all crashed. Such a great trip and so many great memories.
