We had Walter baptized at our church in Cochrane, St Mary's. My mom flew in and
Walter's godparents, the Fowlers, came up from Red Deer too.

the 13th usage of the baptism dress starting with my Dad.

We had our deacon Dan do the service.

Natalia and I and Walter. This baptism went a lot smoother than Henry's since we administered Tylenol
BEFORE the service!

Walter's candle is now lit. Apparently you bring it out again for their wedding, which we always
thought you light it on their baptismal anniversary.

This photo is funny since Walter is staring at his candle.

Natalia took the opportunity of Walter's baptism to have a cake made. Walter looks almost as excited
as his Mom was when she picked up this cake.
