So it's Wed and I"m still recovering from this weekend. What a great Big Party Day! I'm still floored when I think about all of the people who came and where they all came from. Our son is one lucky little dude to have so much love in his life. Some of the highlights:
Us with the Godparents:
Just the Godparents:
Our little family. It's an equally terrible picture of all of us but whatever. We're all there and dressed up so we'll go with it:
My favorite Ladies. Many, many miles were traveled to get this photo. I appreciate every one. Best friends ever:
Immediate family. By this point the toddler had sat through both a mass and a baptism so everything was starting to come unraveled:
My grandparents. Have I mentioned how lucky my kids are?
The ceremony went well. There were 3 other kids baptized that day so it was kindof hectic...
The priest commented on how cool his hair was several times. Even called him "little dude" which is our nickname for him. Awesome.
The party went well, too. We were so worried about the heat that we had my dad bring over the industrial fans from his shop. It worked great and noone ended up too melty.
Our little dude got pretty melty in his suit though:
It was originally worn by my father. But a little too hot to keep on all day. So he changed into something a little cooler:
My uncle said he looks like a bookie. Heh.
I think that any party that ends with a pile of kids and dogs running crazy is funtimes.
There's even more pictures over on Flickr but I think that's enough for the blog. One more for the road:
Overall it was a really great day!
