What a great weekend!
The "surprise" birthday party was a bit upside down, as the birthday boy came in from the back and actually surprised the guests who were expecting him from the front! Regardless, it was a nice way to celebrate a milestone age with a bunch of friends. What was supposed to be a few hours at the location actually turned out to be several hours, which is simply a testament to the good natured fun and company that was around.
Happy birthday Pete!
The following morning, October 18, I went to my very first baptism. As mentioned, I had never been to a baptism so it was quite nice to be invited to such a select occasion shared by typically so few. Sloan was the perfect quiet smiling baby through the whole thing. I was very happy with the photos afterwards, especially since there were a few kids around, which always makes taking group photos a little more tricky than usual :) Hopefully everyone' s jaws aren't sore from smiling so much!
