A Wedding to Remember

I hate to admit it but we get invited to a lot of weddings.
It's that season of life.
Graduations and weddings.
Lots and lots of them.
Every once in awhile our WHOLE family is invited to a wedding.
This particular wedding was so special, that our whole family actually ATTENDED.
(That's saying a lot... really.)

I'll start with the bride and groom.
(Since it was their day, right?)
Beautiful couple.

Only picture from the ceremony.
That's Joseph playing the Best Man role perfectly.
Beautiful Mass.

Waiting on the food...

while watching everyone at the head table eating.
(Try explaining that to the 2yo.)

Miss Nonnie strikes a pose.

The boys were thrilled to find a deck of cards.
(Made their mom pretty happy, too.)

Dan got a chance to catch up on the family scoop.

Food.  YES!!

Then, quick...back to the cards guys.

The official first dance.
Beautiful moment.

Then we snuck outside for a quick family photo op.

Yep, that's the whole crew.

And one final photo of the bridal party.
Beautiful day.

Thanks to Jonah and April for inviting us
to share in your celebration!

Our Crew at the Zoo

We survived the drive only to begin the battle for the stroller.
Who gets to ride...who gets to push...

Francis in his glory.

Checking out the warthogs.

A little picture posing...

got one without the Francis-squinty-eye special.

So glad there was some nice, thick glass there.

The sea life was a favorite exhibit.


She's always willing to take advantage of a photo op.

The bears...up close and personal.

A couple of last glimpses of the monkeys
before we took our monkeys home.

Last of the Summer

(Sorry, these pictures are pretty old.
Like two months ago old.)
They may be old but they're still cute!

Sister selfie.

Marianna showing off new uses for sugar cones.

Some beautiful sky pics

One last picnic of the summer.

Frozen pizza and iced tea

Dan and I road tripped it to Northern MN for a weekend
with friends.

View from the deck of the cabin we stayed at.

The lake we were on is from the old "Land of Sky Blue Water"
beer commercial.
Then back to the ranch and cooking with kids.

And everyday chores.

A break while stacking wood one day.
And one last beautiful sky pic.
Ah, summer, I miss you already!
