(I am trying to get the blog up to date, so there are a bunch of new posts if you scroll down. I was trying to put them in order.)
Saturday, July 13th was a lovely day for a wedding. It was sunny, which is really all you can hope for in the Seattle area even in the summer.
(Side story- while we were waiting for the wedding to begin, a member of another wedding party came up to me and Blair and asked if we were sisters, the cousins one side of the family they hadn't met yet. They were amazed to hear we aren't related, except as in-laws. This isn't the first time we've been mistaken as sisters when we are together. It's funny that people don't see the resemblance between our husbands who are related. Blair and I joke around that we really must be related. We both have family on our dads' sides that we haven't met, so.... maybe it's entirely possible. :) ) Although why they don't see the resemblance between these two silly guys is beyond me:
The bride and groom.
Michael, Blair, Ryan and I were all eager to get back to my in-laws. Visiting relatives were watching all the kids. I'm sure we made everyone very happy by rushing out of there as soon as we possibly could (to the detriment of the zillions of pictures we could have taken, but kept to a minimum). Parts of northbound I-405 were closed, so it took us rather longer to get back. We returned with just enough time to get all the kids ready for the pictures before the reception (me vs. 6 little girls to get ready as Caitlin was a bridesmaid and not back yet), except the bride and groom and photographer hadn't arrived yet. Oh well.
