I called our local church last week as I want to get Joseph and Leila christened. Lucy was christened when she was one at the same church.
The minister called me back on Saturday and asked if we would like to go in and meet him for Sunday service, and he also mentioned that there would be a garden party after the service that we would be welcome to attend.
So we all went. The girls went off into Sunday School which they loved. Joseph was fine at first but he'd missed his nap and got restless so Graham took him outside where he promptly fell asleep.
The garden party was with a big BBQ in the rectory garden. It was a gorgeous day and we had a great time. The girls mixed in straight away, and Graham was given a guitar to play so he was happy. Joseph sat with me on a mat on the grass and played with some of the many toys around. It turned out to be a truly lovely afternoon and we didn't get home until four hours later!
