Day 3 was all about Ali’s baptism.
Eric and I were lucky enough to be her godparents. I offered to buy Ali a baptismal gown but they already had one from Suzie’s side of the family that had been used since 1914. So instead, I bought her a charm bracelet. I put two charms on it, one with her name and birthday and one that was a cross, to symbolize the baptism. I did this for our other god-daughter, Abby, and really liked it.
After the baptism, they had a party at their house. They lucked out because their next door neighbors were having a 25th anniversary party at the same time and hired a mariachi band and a deejay. We had free music all night, which was great until we wanted to sleep.
