Rosalie’s baptism in photos

Yesterday was Rosalie’s baptism. It was such a special day: my mom made the gown, my brother performed the baptism, both sets of grandparents were able to attend.

There were setbacks, however. I woke up on Sunday with an upset stomach.  Boo.  We had decided to hold a “destination baptism” (if you consider Bakersfield, CA a “destination,” that is), so the two hour drive was longer than the usual journey one makes for baptism. 2 hours plus stomach yucks? Double no fun for traveling. And then, when we arrived about an hour before the ceremony, we discovered that the park we were planning to have sandwiches and cake afterward was populated with drug addicts.  Yikes on bikes.

Never fear, though.  Some parishioners made us amazing tacos after the baptism (It pays to have clergy in the family) and then we had the cake in the school parking lot (Fitting, don’t you think?) while the kiddos ran rampant on the school grounds.  A little pepto and I was fine for the drive, so all around it was a great day.

Here are the photos, unedited.  (Fully planning to glamorize some of these at some point, but I ain’t got time for dat now.)

Welcome to our newest Catholic, and an adorable one at that.  (Cue the Lion King soundtrack.)
