This past weekend was the wedding of Cody Brown and Susan Drawbond.
Angela Yoder and I were asked to be the cooks (thanks to Emma Bontrager and Dorcas Swartzentruber for all the help preparing the food on Friday)
Friday we made the potatoes, icing'd the cupcakes, and got the tables set up for serving, among many other things!
Many hands helped with the decorating...
It was a beautiful day for an outdoor wedding!!
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Brown!! :)
The wedding was a busy time for our family.....Dan was the sound guy and MC at the reception, Danny was the videographer, and Tamara served cake and ice cream with her friend Darla.
After the wedding cleanup was wrapped up, we went home, changed clothes and took my nephew and his wife (she was the photographer for the wedding, Small Moment's Photography) to the beach so she could take our family pictures, and then we met up with the youth and some wedding guests for supper on the beach!
Eric is the master fire builder....using the card table to shield the wind till the fire got going good!
Beautiful sunset as usual!
Us and Javin's stayed at the beach till after dark chatting and enjoying the bright moonlight! We only met Vironica at their wedding last August, so it was good to learn to know her better! :)
Sunday was our church's 20 year Homecoming Celebration!
Eric & Yolie Miller and Jeremy Redmond and Amy Cloud blessed us with some nice quartet music!
Each family (past and present) got their picture taken....that way there are pictures for the NEXT 20 year celebration!! ;)
Our family <3
Some of the cute little kids! :)
Some of my friends, Amy Yoder (from MT), Dorcas Swartzentruber (from MO) and Shannon Ziesemer and Yolie Miller.
Yesterday morning was so lovely, though taking a picture through our cloudy bedroom window didn't do it justice!!
The low fog, the cows, and the water droplets on the clothes line were just beautiful!!
There is a slight sign of Fall in our backyard! :)
This tree started all on its own and is growing so fast. It started growing under our trampoline and we eventually had to move it. Now it is so tall already!!
Yesterday the kids were invited to spend the day at the beach with the Swartzentrubers before they head back to MO. That left me with a day to myself. On a whim, I texted my friend Amy to see if she was free to get some coffee and chat! She was!! :) Amy is from here but lives in MT now, so we don't get to see each other often.
It was nice to reconnect a bit! :)

This weekend we are looking forward to spending a little time with my sis and her family down at the beach and then Sunday morning Dan will be running in his first ever Half Marathon in Applachicola! :)
