Today was my Nephew’s Baptism. I took the night off tonight so that I could go down and stay at the Cape overnight. But I worked last night so I was pretty well burnt by the time the Baptism came around. I got home, passed out on the couch with the kids, slept for an hour in the car but was not even close to ready to go. So I fell asleep during the mass. I was awake for the Baptism.
The Baptism was very nice. The priest asked the younger kids attending to help him out with the service. Eva was so proud to help out and so reverent. She was so serious. I think she’ll be an altar server when she is older. She got to put the Baptism garment on each of the three children.
We had a nice gathering after the Baptism and enjoyed spending time with family. I did have to sneak off and catch an hour of sleep though. I ended up watching an episode of Battlestar Galactica three times because I missed part of it each time by falling asleep.
That night we went over to the Raw Bar for dinner. Andrew really liked the statues on the way out.
And let’s just say he wasn’t checking out Blackbeard, either.
