We have returned from a weekend with kids and grandchildren. We attended the Baptism of our youngest son's youngest son and it was a grand time with five of our grandchildren there--ages 7 months to 9 years old. Here are some wonderful pictures we took of the Baptism and the party afterwards. The Godparents were Son #2 and wife, Kara, (Little One decided to join her parents during the ceremony), plus the priest, and Son #4 with wife and our youngest grandson at his Baptism.

Little One waiting with her cousin, Miss Ella Bella, for the Baptism to begin.

Our families after the Baptism.

And then we moved outside for a party that lasted all afternoon. What fun the cousins had playing together at the party!
Cousins bouncing in the "Bouncy House." Wait, I believe I see Uncle Son #2 in the left corner! How did he get in there?
Em is playing "kicking ball" very gently with Miss Ella Bella. Actually, Em was trying to teach Miss Ella Bella to kick the ball. So sweet!
Em and Miss Ella Bella going for a "wild" ride in the pink jeep!
Youngest Grandson looks very comfortable with cousins, Em and Soph, who were taking very good care of him. Future babysitters?? You bet!
Little One wanted to "hold" Youngest Grandson (with Kara's help). Does he appear to be a doctor-in-the-making, Uncle Son #3??
We had such a grand time and I was sorry to have the weekend end so quickly. Where did the time go?


  1. Enjoyed hearing about your trip and seeing your family pics. What a wonderful celebration of God and family!
