So, last weekend was great! We all got through the shuttles, scooters, wheelchairs, plane rides, rental car, etc...
















We got to the rehearsal dinner late on Saturday, but it turned out fine. It was good to relax after our hours of traveling. It was nice to finally meet everyone at the dinner. Afterwards, we went to the hotel and unpacked. The bride and groom's relatives all stayed at the same hotel, and we all had a great time being together. It was the kind of hotel that included breakfast, and we just took over the place. In the evenings groups of relatives were playing cards, swimming in the pool and eating famous Chicago pizza.





We really bonded with the bride's relatives, and it was a reunion of sorts for our side of the family. I wish everyone could have been there. The morning of the wedding, I played the part of hairdresser/make-up artist. Everyone in the family has curly hair, so it was easy, and the make-up part was fun. There was plenty of time, and I had the best time doing it. No stress at all. The hotel room was grand central, and it definitely made a memory. The wedding was just perfect, every part of it. I'm so glad we were able to go. I wonder which niece or nephew will be next. The two nephews that have married so far met their spouses on mission trips. Seems like someone needs to take a trip!

This week has flown by. The season, really. It doesn't seem that long ago that I'd be standing out here looking at the snow and bare trees, then the first vestiges of spring, and now...everything's lush and green with flowers in full bloom. I love this time of year.

Time to get ready for work. Till the next time....

Chicago Pizza. Sounds yummy. But then again I'm too far away from home to be patriotic. :) Can't believe it's June already either!
