This past weekend we had the wonderful blessing of having Andrew baptized. It was such a beautiful occasion and many of our friends and family were able to join us. Andrew looked so beautiful in his white suit and bow-tie. His hair still smells like the baptism oil. I washed his hair once since his baptism but I love the smell so much that I'm delaying washing it again.
Our church does the baptism during mass, surrounded by the entire congregation. I initially thought that it would be very impersonal but it was entirely the opposite. Father Sean incorporated our family in the entire
mass and really made it a special occasion for our family.
My brother, Michael, and Jan's Aunt Carla are Andrew's godparents and were able to join us for the weekend.
And what would be a family get together without some friendly competition. This time we decided to take the family to the race track and Go-Cart Race. But these were not your ordinary go-carts as they go 55 MPH! As you can see, we had to get suited up like race car drivers, helmets, neck braces and all. We had a blast, tearing around the track. Jan was the fastest driver and Carla aka Speed Demon/ Lead Foot etc. was a close second.
