The first weekend in October was a busy one! We had family arrive from the Detroit area and Neenah, WI on Saturday and then Evelyn's baptism was held on Sunday, October 5th at Gwinn United Methodist Church. Evelyn wore the slip from my family's christening gown (handmade by my mom's aunt who was a nun) and a beautiful crocheted gown made by Mom/Grandma Rice. She didn't cry once during the service and was awake the entire time!
We enjoyed a delicious ham dinner following church (thanks Mom Rice!) then headed down to Farquar Metsa Tourist Park in Gwinn for some family photos. The fall colors were beautiful against a clear blue sky.
