Kayla's Baptism

Yesterday Kayla was baptized at our church by a young priest that we admire very much.  I really love all of his homilies and he especially made this day very memorable for all us.  We had several friends, of Katy and Brian's, and a few family members over afterwards for food and cake to celebrate this special event.  As you can tell from this photo, we are a pretty happy family.  Bobby was Kayla's Godfather and Katy's long time high school friend was her Godmother.  My week leading up to this day was very busy cleaning things that I don't usually bother with....but needed to be done.  I got to visit with 2 friends this week also that I don't usually get to see, so that was nice.  Today we are having a kick back relaxing day.  I wanted to do a post about my Dad on this Memorial day but just haven't gotten around to it.  He was a Medic in WWII and my Mom was working at Boeing in Seattle while he was overseas.  Maybe someday I will collect enough information about what I have been told and write it all out for our children and grandchildren.  I feel very proud of my family today and grateful that we get to spend a lot of quality time together.  I miss my Mom and Dad at times like this.  Thanks Dad....for all the lives you tried to save and for all the ones you did save.

Oh I love your memories of your dad being a medic. Love the Baptism picture. Looks like you all had a good time. I love having a "good speaker" for homilies and such.
