We were very excited to be able to attend Ashlynn's baptism on February 19 in Moses Lake, WA. It was a little hard to believe that we had children old enough to have their own children being baptized! Despite that, we are grateful for their wonderful family and appreciate the great job of teaching and parenting that they are doing. Ashlynn and her family on the night of her baptism
