The ceremony was beautiful and Riley Quinn was wonderful for the whole thing. (Even though it was right at nap time!) She was baptized with water from the sound right outside of the church which is a mile away from our house. It couldn't have been any more perfect. So many of our friends and relatives were there, including both sets of grandparents, one set of great grandparents, second cousins, great uncle, uncles, God parents and sisters and the rest of our island family. It was so wonderful to know all of the support we have in raising Riley Quinn to be a good Christian girl.
After the baptism, we had homemade ice cream and finger sandwiches at mom and dad's house. We planned to do it at our house, but it was just too hot to be outside and there is more room to be inside at mom and dad's. We really appreciate everyone being a part of today and thank you for all of the well wishes from those of you who were not in town but are also helping us to raise our sweet girl.
Here are some photos from Riley Quinn's special day.
