Father's Day celebra[tion]

Father's Day weekend was extra special this year
because we celebrated your daddy's first Father's Day,
Brian and I both had our daddy's in town,
and we celebrated your BAPTISM!

Ronni brought you a beautiful baptism gown from Georgia,
you looked gorgeous, little one!

And we had lots of guests in town for the weekend!
Ronni & Papa came, as well as Kathryn with all the Chapman & Lucas kids,
Onnie & Papa, and Allison, Brad, and Ellie,
and Grandaddy and Great Grandmama!

The ceremony was held during the church service at
Circular Congregational Church,
where your daddy and I were married.

You were a little fussy beforehand,
but did very well!
You even smiled at Jeremy when he touched your head with the water.
Right on cue!

You went to the nursery for the rest of the service,
but afterwards we were able to get a beautiful family photo
to commemorate the occasion!

And one with Jeremy Rutledge who officiated the service.

We then walked over to Poogan's Porch
for a wonderful lunch to celebrate you and all the father's!

After lunch we had everyone back to our house for dessert,
and a dip in the baby pool!

You were showered with several gifts,
including a sweet Bible and pearl bracelet with cross.

For Father's Day, you had made these precious footprints at daycare.
And we got daddy a personalized card, and a guitar music book of children's songs.

All in all, it was the perfect day, surrounded by love!
