The wedding was very nice.
The bride was beautiful.
The groom was dashing.
The venue was not "white enough" as Bill and my dad put it.
The walls were white, the cathedral ceiling was white but the floor was not white. It should have been according to them.
The reception was in the Garden Pavilion. It was basically a glass atrium style building. The interior was draped with white chiffon-like material. Think "My Best Friend's Wedding" reception and that's what it was like. The floral arrangements were spectacular. The food was good (even if because of Bill we were the last table to get in line and had to wait for the servers to bring fresh trays of everything).
Today we spent most of the day in the car.
We watched one of Skylar's soccer games (50 minutes from Cicero), went to lunch at 99th street. Drove clear across town to the mall so I could buy a silly lanyard for my church keys, drove back to Mom and Dad's and then hopped right back in the car and drove home to GR.
But Skylar won her soccer game. Spencer giggled, played and had fun blowing raspberries at us. Lunch was yummy (Red Robin, yum). And I found the lanyard I wanted and got $5 off!
While it was a long day, it waited and rained at the end, we made it home safely and enjoyed seeing my family.
