Father of the Bride

My cup is full and running over this morning as I reflect back on Saturday, January 17th......today's blog entry will be told with pictures.......

 Getting ready to 'walk'

Down the isle

Happy Mom and Dad

I think you will agree.....the pictures tell the story.....it was a perfect day.....crystal clear blue skies.....about 75 degrees, and not a breath of wind......a picture perfect day for an al fresco wedding.  It was, as it should be, a time of celebration, happiness, and fulfilled dreams spent with dear family and wonderful friends.  We are so grateful for all those who were able to attend.  If you weren't able to make it to this one, I've got another coming up in October (17th) when my daughter Kate, and her fiance (Nick) will walk down the aisle right here in Riverside.  And, not to forget, my brother (Philip) will be giving away his daughter (Danielle) on July 18th of this year........

This is a special time of our lives......we have done our job......our kids have grown into happy, successful, mature adults and are making their mark upon the world.....we spent 32 years of our lives raising 5 kids to adulthood, and now we are reaping a bountiful harvest.  We could not be happier, or feel more blessed than we do right now.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
