|Our view of Lake Diane|
Speaking of the big girls, they LOVED going out on Grandpa's boat and going fast. A few times, we took them out on the paddle boat. But it wasn't fast enough and they asked to go back to the house. Truly their parents' children.
|Daddy, Vivian, Aunt Maria, Miriam|
|Nope, she's totally sober.|
|Totally wiped out.|
|Tim, Ryan, Tom|
|Two peas in a crazypod.|
|"Someone please help me."|
|"A naptime cocktail. Cheers!"|
Unfortunately, a certain someone (who reads this blog) is forbidden from viewing the said wedding dress.
You know who you are. But in case anyone is still trying to figure it out...above, right. Cute couple, huh?
So instead all you all get to see is pictures of Wellman sisters etc. at the store.
OH! And have we introduced Michael's new gf?!?! Meet Patty. Or as we call her, Pepper. Everyone around here needs a good nickname. She grew up in Milan, Italy, went to college at Purdue, works in Chicago, met Michael AT CHURCH. We're fans.
|Yeah, we're not entirely sure how he snagged such a cute girl either.|
Then we tried to see the cathedral...
It was massive and beautiful on the outside.
And very locked up for the day. Bummer.
Nichole and Michael recovered. And claim they'd do another Tough Mudder. It was that fun, apparently.
Our ranks continued to swell when Uncle Tom and Aunt Marilyn came to visit one evening.
We played games (don't really understand the one below yet...something about hitting a beer bottle off a pole with a frisbee).
Enjoyed a fire.
There's more that we didn't get pictures of, like Uncle John's fireworks or Vivian vomiting or praying together or the never ending games of Tripoly or the hike with a thousand ticks and so on. (We still don't know why she got sick, but she said it was because she ate too much. Hummm.)
So a big thanks to Sarah's family for an exciting, relaxing, entertaining ten days.
