Wedding Joy

Scott and I were talking about how we've moved out of the phase in our lives where we are attending weddings all of the time.  After that phase, we moved into the "baby shower" phase, which I reminded him that he never had to partake in...ever.  So, now when we get to go to a wedding, it's a fun, novel event - especially when it's a friend that I've known for 15+ years.  And then we get to see mutual friends that we've known for that long, too, and have moved onto other areas of the country!

Last night, my friend Kristin married her Scott.  And it was a beautiful day/night, where the setting was gorgeous, the people were engaging, and the bride was amazingly low-key (but beautiful!)  The short and sweet ceremony took place at the Ft Snelling Chapel (need to get back there with the kids, so we can explore the area) and the reception was at the Medakota Country Club in Mendota Heights.  Another friend of mine had her reception there 13 years ago, so it was fun to go back and relive another wedding experience there.  It was a perfect night! 

Waiting for the ceremony to start


This made me laugh...not sure why my face is so distorted here...


Emilie and I waiting for dinner...it was worth the wait!


 Taking a break from dancing...Gretchen, Julie, Tara and Chrissy, sneaking out of the way!


It's always good to see Rob and Ande!



Ava went to a movie and had a sleepover with a friend on Friday night, and then last night, both kids were at Grandma Deb and Grandpa Whitey's, so we've had a more quiet, kid-free weekend than usual.  It'll be nice to see them this morning, and give them lots of hugs and kisses.
