Weddings and such…

 Guten Morgan!


~~~~~


*Warning!* 


This is a HUGE picture post…  With simply tons of pictures from our trip back home and of my baby sisters wedding*


~~~~~


So I’m back… It seems like simply forever since I was able to really keep up with everyone… life has been so full of late! 


We had a wonderful time back home in Phoenix.  We enjoyed every moment of family and friends and our home here in The Land of Fairy Tales feels empty and quiet after the whirlwind of activity the last month has been.


First things first!  My Sister, Charly, and Ryan’s brother, Zach, are dating!!!  We are so happy for them and they make a beautiful couple!

~The Rehearsal~


 


In the interest of space I am only going to show you a few pictures from the rehearsal and of course most of them will be of Ryan and I! 


Here we are walking down the aisle together…  Looks natural doesn’t it?

    My son-in-law is career Air Force too.  Now stationed at the AF Academy.  So my new granddaughter is an AF brat!  LOL.  She’s beautiful too. 
    Your sister’s wedding was beautiful, and do wear the red dress to the AF Ball.  “Put on your red dress, baby, ’cause we’re goin’ out tonight.”  That song is before your time, but you may know it, if you like old rock n’ roll.
    Thanks for sharing, and congrats to the newlyweds.
