On the day of the wedding we were all watching the weather--rain was in the forecast.
The wedding was outside and afterwards we would move into the restaurant.
The setting was lovely...
...But the clouds were gathering.
Here they come!
Donna Mae--the grandmother of the Bride
Becky--the mother of the bride,
Sarah, the sister of the bride,
So beautiful and So far--no rain!
Phew, they made it.
Time for hugs and kisses,
Are those raindrops?
Everybody's dry--though not dry-eyed. Mother-of-the-bride was very relieved.
Congratulations to Alec, Donna Mae's grandson, for completing his training and getting his pilot's license. Good job, Alec.
I gave my camera to Amara Jo to take a couple of pictures. This was the first....
...and this was the second.
The ring bearer (a great dancer) and his partner, the flower girl.
Cousin, Jan had on the most colorful outfit.

Is it over?
One last thing. The next morning Amara Jo, her mom Anna Lisa and uncle Dustin came for a tour of the RV.
Yes, now it's over but it was lots of fun.
Congratulations to John and Katy, you are a lovely couple surrounded by a wonderful family.
