We spent some time with the Heitman clan on Thursday night; I love my grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins. I really miss being far apart from them here in Utah! Even though Miranda accidentally gouged a hole in my shin with her toenail, it was pretty fun (I love you girl, but there's a scar now). Some of the family went to TGIF for lunch the next day; this was where Emma painted our fingernails at the table. She painted mine and Katie's with straight sparkle nail polish. She was actually pretty good for a five-year-old. The trip to the zoo was pretty funny. We watched a giraffe pee on another giraffe's head and watched monkeys pick each other's bottoms. Typical zoo entertainment. The best entertainment would have to be my cousins:
I'm not sure how Emma got a hold of him, but it was pretty funny. I guess Logan likes to run away. I think eventually my Dad got to take a turn trying to keep up with him.
The highlight of the trip came the day we left: Ruth Ann Kraemer, or Grandma Ruth Ann, was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. 30 years after meeting the missionaries and going to church off an on, she has finally decided to take that leap of faith. I couldn't be more proud of her; I know her decision wasn't easy but I know she will always be so grateful that she did. Of course my sweet mother volunteered her entire family to help out :). Mom, Grandma's oldest daughter, gave the baptism talk. I gave the talk on the Holy Ghost, I was the pianist and I accompanied Katie during her beautiful vocal solo. Kevin gave one of the prayers and my father also participated. Grandma was baptized in the Washington chapel, the same building that Dad, Katie and I were baptized in!
