I hear Wedding Bells

Thursday

Nice and cool to sleep.  I woke up this morning with a sore shoulder and knees from the tumble I took yesterday.  I sat up and reached for the Bio Freeze, that stuff really works.  I put it on and never gave my sore shoulder another thought.  After breakfast and reading my email and blogs I headed out to the coach.  Bonnie spotted a hawk on the ground with some prey it had caught shortly after she got up. The big awning roller seems to collect a lot of water when just sitting.  I put it out and drained it.  I check the traps and caught another mouse.  I am hoping this soon ends.  I ran out and checked the mail and it had come.  Sometimes its early and sometimes its late, one never knows.

Bonnie game me a hair cut and then left early afternoon to go see her sister and help set up chairs for the wedding tomorrow.  Then she was headed to volunteer at the Rural Outreach Center.  She should be home from there soon.  I took it easy all day letting my knees and shoulder heal.

Bonnie got home before dark and we caught up and watched a little TV.

Friday

Today was all about family.  We left late morning to head over to Java Village.  Bonnie her sisters and parents were going to look at the apartment that her parents are planning to move into.  I stayed at her sisters house and visited with my nephew and his sons.  The girls all came home and we had a bit of lunch.  Then it was time to head down to her brothers for the wedding.

It was a beautiful day.  We call this area of the old farm the campground.  It was all fixed up real nice.  Brian put up a huge shelter, seems he has bought a portable saw mill and put it to good use.  The ceremony was up in whats called the cucumber field.

After the wedding we headed back down the hill to the campground and enjoyed a catered meal by Charlie the Butcher.  It was very good.  Then lots of visiting and some fun with family.

We made it home right at sunset.  Stand-by the reception is tomorrow.  Tonight lots of the out of town young folks are camping out on the grounds.

Saturday

We were not up real early this morning but we did get going and got around to leaving for day 2 of the wedding celebration.  Today was the reception over at the farm campground and the weather was perfect again.  There had been forecasts for rain but it was nice all day.  A lot of Steve and Erynn's friends were from out of town, actually all over the country.  So many of them had spent the night in tents, hammocks, on tables, in cars etc on the property.  I am told it was a quiet night and all were bedded down by midnight.  Today there were lots of games, hikes, fun on the rope swing, trips to the pirate ship etc.  Chiavetta's Chicken catered lunch at noon and it was delicious and perfect, with enough left over for supper.  We had a great time visiting and getting to know Steve's side of the family.  I must say this is the best time I have ever had at a wedding, except my own.  Many are staying again tonight and then heading back to their homes and jobs tomorrow.  We headed home after dark and are pretty tired so heading to bed as midnight fast approaches.

Bonnie her parents and siblings all but her brother Dean who was unable to attend


Sunday

Well its been a busy and fun weekend.  Today we were up and off to church.  The girls were driving themselves so we did not need to pick them up.  The church service was very good and it was good to be there.

Then a quick stop at the produce/flea market and then we beat feet home.  A couple of Bonnie's sisters were communing over for lunch and a visit.  We had the smoked turkey noodle soup.  It was very good.  Then we visited for a while and they headed home.  We watched the end of the Brickyard 400 NASCAR race and saw Jeff Gordan win there for the 5th time.

Looks like the weather will turn cooler tomorrow which is good it seems awful hot and humid here tonight.

Another great week and we are going to have to rest up from a wonderful weekend.
