Happily Ever After

Well, the reception of the wedding that I went to yesterday was fun. We had a great meal and mom and I danced very frequently. Dad also jjoined us on the slow dances. It was nice to see my God parents again, but strange to talk to a whole bunch of people who remembered me as a little kid-I had no clue who they were! :)
We got home around 1 A.M. and let the dogs out. They had been alone since 6 and really missed us. It's not often that I leave Jetta, but the reception would have been too loud with the music playing.
The bride and groom seemed very happy and I wish them the best of luck. Everyone was pretty friendly, so it made for a good night. When it came time for throwing the bouquet and garter the single women-me included-filed out onto the dance floor to catch the elusive prize-a 13 year old caught it. Go figure. :) When it was time for the garter throwing though, none of the single men wanted to go and after the groom threw it, they all ran away and left it lying on the dance floor. Apparently they don't want to get married? It was helarious!
My mom and I are taking Jetta for a walk on the board walk that is in our down town later this afternoon and then we are headed to the local movie theatre to see "The Break Up." A real girls' afternoon. (There is a picture on Laura's blog of Jetta, Willow, Laura and I standing on this very board walk).
Happy Fathers' day to everyone's dads.

Your mom's already married! This wedding only called for the "single ladies" to the dance floor.

usually that is what is supposed to happen, singles only...


Haha - Jess it sounds like a great time. But I'd rather do a walk on a board walk any time. Then again, it's just another chance to photograph. but I might just start bringing the cam almost everywhere.. hehe

Unfortunately, our walk was cancellled. It poured rain...and not just a little sprinkling because I would have went out in that...but lots of rain for an extended period of time. The movie was good though.
I think if I could see I'd take as many pictures as you. :)
