Trip to Tennessee

 Mark and Amy

my little sister was the most beautiful bride and Mark was grinning from ear to ear

I can't wait to see the pictures.  They had amazing photographers!  Abram and Sarah came from Greenville.   They were so great.  I miss you, Sarah.

The days following the wedding were very relaxing.  It was so good to see Mark and Anne and their boys.  Both sets of my grandparents were able to travel down for the wedding also.  One day we had a little backyard picnic/ bday celebration for my grandma, my grandpa, and Jonas whose birthdays are all in July.

These pictures a a little out of order, but the next one has a story behind it!  There were HUGE plumbing issues at my parents house on the day of the wedding!  It was awful.  Some tree roots grew into the sewer line and just happened to cause problems on the morning of the wedding.  There were 20 + people at my parents house and not one working toilet!  Thankfully they live only a few blocks away from the church and much of the day was spent hauling potty training children and grandmas back and forth to the church.  It's one of those things we just have to laugh about now!

Aunt Elizabeth came all the way from Guam!  It was so good to see her.

Thanks for sharing Beth-- It was fun to see a lot of faces I met a long time ago. I cut Mark's sister's hair once and of course your mom and sisters. Your sister looked beautiful. What a great story. Two brothers marrying two sisters. It would be so nice to not have the in-laws battle!

It just clicked with me the whole cute thing with your sister and Mark. I love it. Glad you had a great time. Seeing family is always so refreshing for me. Also, I'm glad to see that you made it through your summer!!
