Here are some photos of family visiting our house this past weekend. Besides witnessing Katherine's baptism, everyone enjoyed time outside playing, socializing and, of course, eating!

Katherine was baptized at Hope Presbyterian Church on July 21, 2013. Our pastor graciously offered for Bob Luidens, Katherine's grandfather, to perform the baptism. We had a great weekend visiting with family who traveled to be with us for this happy occasion!
|First time sitting in the service - Kate did pretty well, with the usual amount of wiggling!|
