We have certainly had a wonderful day! After several months of planning, today was Adam Howard's baptism. Father Dick once again agreed to do us a favor and do the honor of baptizing Adam in our backyard... or so he said a few months ago. Then he forgot to write it down in his calendar, so Tim's call to him on Thursday led to a bit of panic around the house, as he was double booked to perform a wedding at the same time as the baptism.
Thankfully, the day was pretty fluid, and we were able to serve lunch first instead. The biggest issue of the day turned out to be that Aunt Shirley and Uncle Tom got hit by a motorcyclist on their way over. Please note that they live less than three miles from us and were the only ones who didn't have to hop onto one of Southern California's crazy freeways. Thankfully everyone was alright, and they were all able to make it, which is what matters.
And now, picture time!
We had a wonderful day and I feel so blessed by our family and our sweet little kiddos. I am so glad that everyone was able to come and celebrate with us, and offer their blessings to Adam.
