Erin, Jonah, and I were in Beaverton at Holy Trinity for Travis Hemstreet’s baptism today. Four infants made the event about twice as long as Jonah’s (where there were only two), but it’s all reasonably jolly, so nobody’s complaining.

The party afterward at the Hemstreets’ place was rocking. Saw my college friend Karen there along with her husband Rob. Karen’s an estate planning attorney in Portland nowadays, and should anyone need that type of advice, drop me a line and I’ll forward her business contact info. (Personally, I desperately need to get a will finished.) I had significant face time with Travis, and like before we got along wonderfully. He seems such a very happy boy, but who wouldn’t be with parents like Sue and Dave? What a lucky lad! Our continuing thanks to them for including us in Travis’ special day.
