Introducing Calum Prince Boles

Introducing Calum Prince Boles. He was born Friday, January 9th at 10:36 pm. He was 8 lbs. 3 oz. and 20.25 inches long at birth.

Calum is pronounced Cal as in Calvin (Cal-lum). His middle name, Prince, is a family name from my Dad's lineage. My Great-great grandpa was named William Prince. Grandpa Billy was born and raised in Elephant Hooks, South Africa as a colonizer under Queen Victoria. I grew up listening to stories of all his crazy adventures. Mormon missionaries found the plantation and baptized his entire family who later left everything behind to travel to America to be with the Saints. Once they arrived they traveled by foot across the entire country to join the Saints out West and settled in Panguitch, Utah.

Austin and I thought Prince would be a really cool name to give our little boy who we hope will not only be brave and adventurous, but also a strong, faithful man of God.
