7:16 am (PCT) - Sunday - October 8th - 57º F, humidity 42%, wind  - CALM......clear blue skies.....forecast high for Riverside this day is DOWN to 87º F......an 11 degree decline over yesterday's actual high.....thank goodness!  We received news just a few hours ago that TLE's oldest brother, Read, had just passed after 15 months battling cancer.....he was a good man, and a friend to all.....he will be sorely missed.....RIP Read.....you are in a better place!

Saturday morning began with Room Service delivering a large pot of actually very good coffee to our room accompanied by a bagel and cream cheese.......isn't Room Service wonderful?  You must pick up the phone and wonderful things appear at your door!



TLE left for a mani/pedi around 9:15 am leaving me to watch some college football and take at least one nap.  When she returned around noon we walked downstairs to the Las Campanas Mexican restaurant on the ground floor.  They offer alfresco dining, so that is what we chose......of course......



.....we ordered one bowl of Ceviche de Camarones to share, and one large margarita to share.....


......all too soon our lunch was over and it was time for the first round of wedding day festivities......endless pictures of the wedding party in every imaginable pose......




.....the Mission Inn is an amazing place with so many unique venues......below is the exterior of the 'chapel' where Tim and Laila exchanged vows.....

The first dance.....Mr. and Mrs. Hockwald

 In the ballroom with Hilary, her daughter, Stephanie and TLE

.........we had a wonderful evening of good food, good company, and a lot of dancing......by 10 pm TLE and I called it an evening....I'm sure the festivities went on until the wee hours.  

So, our baby boy is married and has begun the rest of his life with an amazing woman who we are both proud to call 'daughter'.  It has been a whirlwind of activity since we landed at John Wayne International just a few days ago, and we are now on the home stretch.  We are both tired, but so happy for the time with family and friends.....our cup runneth over!

Thanks for stopping by!
