Yesterday (6/22) was Benjamin's baptism, I spent all day Saturday making cupcakes, and food (Salpicao -- Brazilian chicken salad, molho paulista -- what the Americans call salsa...and cutting up veggies, fruits, making sangria, etc.) We had a full day on Saturday getting ready and Sunday morning was even more busy than I thought getting things set up. At 12:30PM we had a beautiful service at St. Mark's church and then headed home for a party! I had no time to take pictures at the party, but all of Ken's family was here and all of my family (sans mom and Stephane) was here as well. Benjamin was a crowd pleaser and though the forecast called for rain and thunder storms, St. Peter was on our side; it rained right after everyone left but not one minute before!!! The day couldn't have been more perfect.
