It was a special, special day

On February 28 James got baptized, he was so very excited and happy. Here he is wearing Grandpa Jim's tie for his special day and all dressed and ready! His cousin, Robinson also wore Grandpa Jim's tie for his baptism, it is a tradition in our family and a way to remind us that even though he can't be with us in person, he is always here in spirit. (I cried every time I looked at him wearing it) Isn't he so cute and handsome?He had cousins come from Denver and Las Vegas as well as those that live in Utah and his Grandma and Grandpa Basinger came from Oregon. It was a perfect day, the baptism, lunch, playing at the park, out to dinner and games/crafts. Here are some pictures of the cousins that were able to be there that day. It was so fun to spend a day with family and so nice of them to travel from so far.

What a special day for a special boy. We LOVE James! He could live with us and I'd be happy. The tie is so sweet, I got tears in my eyes whenever I saw it. I could feel your dad there that day, what a special day.

Jimmy, you look as handsome as Grandpa Jim in that tie.

I wish I would have had Cal wear one of his ties for his baby blessing...
