Wow, what a day! It was so much fun, so many festivities, music and food! The bride and groom were so beautiful! I want to share a few pictures of some fun moments we had. We started on Thursday, with a fun family dinner with all the fixin's! Pulled pork on French rolls, a wonderful fruity pasta salad, a huge green salad with homemade buttermilk and French dressing, lemonade, an assortment of chips, and ice cream and brownies for dessert! It was wonderful to get reacquainted with Diana's family.

These three little amigos (cousins) were all born within two months of each other - Don't they look like mischief! I'm not sure about the satellite dish behind them - they were probably trying to figure out how to fly to the moon!!
(Jacob, Kyle and Caleb!)
Chris and grandma Johnson at the luncheon!
Caleb and Payton - Puppy love!
There won't be many more times when mom gets to help with the tie.
(I was on the verge of tears the whole day!)
Finally - after a very long day, the wedding was in full swing! And it was beautiful! We were all very happy to hear the words, "I do."
Our cute new grandson and best man. He claimed he had nothing to do with decorating the truck, but I have the evidence!!
James, Amber, Diana, Chris, Jessica and Ben - my wonderful children!
Very impromptu picture!!! I just love all of the expressions, I just wish I knew what each one was thinking - I can only imagine!!
(Christian, Averi, Taylor Jo, Diana, Chris, Brody, Emily and Caleb)
Very proud parents!
Stealing a kiss!
Receptions get kind of long, so it's always good to know how to make antennas with straws! (Taylor Jo and Emily)
Finally the cutting of the cake!
It was such a beautiful day, a few photos cannot even capture the sights and sounds of this very special day! We are so excited for Chris and Diana to start their life together and get on with the everyday challenges and miracles that life has in store for them. I know that it will not always be easy, but it's always easier when you have someone you love standing by your side. Good luck . . . . we love you!
This was taken this morning, May 22nd! Just a good reminder that having an outside wedding in May . . . in Idaho . . . is never a good idea - glad we changed our plans!!
I don't think I'll ever get my garden in!!
Time to go put my feet up! Thank you for all the support and kind words - you are all such a blessing in my life!
