Ryan was baptized on his birthday, two weeks ago. It was a beautiful day and Ryan says it was the best day of his life, so far. His grandparents were able to be there along with many aunts and uncles. Uncle Chris and Grandpa Stovall gave talks, Jacob shared some scriptures, and even Alison (and all the primary children) came up to sing a song. I made a slide show of Ryan and will see if I can somehow post that.
After the baptism, we had lots of green food at the church and then came home and had more green food at home. We did not have corned beef and cabbage, but rather grilled flank steak (it was too warm to cook ham, which was Ryan's original main dish choice). We had mint brownies for Ryan's birthday cake and apple/young berry pie for John's birthday. It was a great day.*
* Grandma Stovall got the stomach flu the night before Ryan's baptism and so it wasn't quite a great day for her. Luckily, two days later, only a few people who at the baptism/dinner came down with the stomach flu. We feel pretty lucky that everyone didn't get sick.
