Two weekends ago, my niece Betsy got married. Incidentally, her wedding was the same weekend as the Living Proof simulcast in Green Bay. So after getting home late that Saturday night, Ang and the three kids and I hopped in the car Sunday morning and drove 7 hours to Boone, NC, went to the wedding, and drove home that same night. Insane. But worth it. We always love to be with family, even if it's just for a short time. Sweet Betsy married a great guy named Matt Krause. Well, I guess he's pretty great. Not deserving of my beautiful and wonderful niece, but still. :-)
She had her wedding outside at my brother and sister-in-law's home...the home she grew up in and lived at until this great day. It was a beautiful day. I gave the camera to Jack for most of our time there. It was a gamble, I know. But Ang and I had to sing and I didn't want to spend the day messing with the camera. He did a good job, although there were lots of pictures of things like these...
I was hoping upon hope that of all the beautiful things and people of the day, we would have a great picture of the port-a-john. Whew. I'm so relieved.
No, really. He did a great job. This is my dad and his friend Sadie:

This is Levi and his cousin Trathen. Levi has re-named his biceps. They used to be Strong and Buddy. Now they are Mario and Luigi. Ladies and gentlemen, Mario and Luigi:

It was a fun day. Congratulations Matt and Betsy!
