Hurry up Granddad, we have to go to a party today. I am going to be Baptised, whatever that is!
Graham,Annaliese,Linda, Robert, Maryrose and Rebecca.
Maryrose likes parties. Here she was, being all dressed up, looking nice, as was Annaliese. Even Uncle Graham looked cool. She did not know what she was in for but was looking forward to this strange event. Soon she was inside this building called
a church, it looked OK, until she was taken up front to this birdbath thingo. A bucket was handed to Rob by the celebrant and Rob poured its contents into the birdbath(Font). Suddenly Maryrose was thrust into the arms of a chap who had his collar on back
to front. This man spoke a bit and then started to splash Maryroses head with water. She responded by filling her nappy. It was time for everyone to escape. After the customary standaround after the sevice, every one went back to Law Street.
Our children and their partners and children
This does not happen very often. It is rare to get Graham, Linda and Samantha in the same photo as their partners and Annaliese and Maryrose
Samantha,Emma, Andy and Paul.
I think this is a good picture and Jodies little finger could not go without an
Maryrose with her God parents: Graham,Kath and Rebecca, not to forget Robert and Linda.
It was now time for some refreshment.
I wonder what this is?
Linda put on a brew some finger food and a cake.
Maryrose had an interest in the cake
She was most definately prepared to try it
Hey, everyone, this is good stuff!
The Ice Cream cake was a winner. It did not last long.
Linda and best friend Jodie
The end of a good day.
As usual all good things come to an end and this occasion was no different. A little after 2pm Sandra and I prepared to leave, as did Samantha and Andy, back to Merrijig and Graham and Emma to Launching Place. A most enjoyable day and it was great
to see the family together. I took quite a few photos, some of which I cannot find at the moment. They were taken outside the church and at Lindas. They included everyone that was at the party as well as Fred and Marj Ingham. When I find them I will put them
