Miles was able to get baptized the day following his birthday - pretty lucky. It was a lovely day - with brilliant sunshine and spring weather. And Miles was pretty much Miles. Like I've said before, Miles stays pretty much true to himself. So, no, he was not sitting quietly, with arms folded, pondering the sweet talks being given at his baptism. He was a little squirmy - or maybe a lot. Ben's parents, Grandpa Max and Diana, were there and gave a great talk on baptism. Grandpa Max asked Miles a few times, "Miles, are you paying attention?" And the truth is, he didn't look like he was, but he most likely could have repeated back what was being said - he's so like that. (Side-note: Often times at FHE Miles is the same way. I'll then say, "Miles, what are we talking about!?" He'll pretty much repeat what we've said. That boy.) The actual baptism part and confirmation of the Holy Ghost were nice and peaceful. Of course there was a good spirit there. :) It was a neat experience watching Ben baptizing our Miles. So wonderful.

We had a really nice weekend with them here. It's always great to have family come.
