Daddy in white. We had the most perfect baptism while in Utah. Maxwell turned 8 on Monday and wanted all his family at his Baptism. He loves the water and loves nature. He spends most of his summer in a lake or creek or river. We counted once 37 days straight in some form of water. He even loves to stand under the waterfall at Proxy falls our new favorite place. When it came time to Baptise him he really wanted it to be in a river. Everyone told us it would be cold water running off the mountains and he would not want to be in it. However, Max really wanted it and we knew he had been in cold water all summer long so the baptism of Maxwell Robert was planned. Uncle Larry moved boulders out of the Santaquin Creek to make it deep enough. He found the perfect place with a bridge for all the relatives to watch from. Max asked Uncle Jeffy to give a talk and he was of course right on. Jeff has a way of saying what the person needs and he really nailed it with Max. He even pulled out the green frog Max sleeps with named Markey Mark for a object lesson. When it was over Max said his legs were cold but when he went in the water he was warm and he knew it was the Holly Ghost. It was amazing!
