Wow, what a wedding – and what a beautiful bride!
The ceremony was so moving. Diana and Craig expressed how they felt about finding each other and how they grew together. Believe me, they were truly expressions from the heart – and there wasn’t a dry eye in the church (mine included).
They left the church through a shower of rose petal
And made their get away to an awaiting fire truck. Yeap, that’s right – a fire truck! Craig is a volunteer fireman.
They had their reception in the Architectural Hall at the City Museum. Of course we had to venture out and explore other areas. Everything in this place is recycled from someplace else. If you haven’t been to the City Museum you are really missing a very unique place.
Diana and Craig tucked a $1 bill into each of the favors with the instructions to couple-up with someone and go to the old-time photo booth (you need $2).

On Sunday we took 3 of our 4 grandkids (Aaron, Paige and Sydney) on an outing to Eckerts to pick peaches and apples. Kayla, the baby, was sick and had to stay home with mommy.
We made each one carry what they picked (hoping that would reduce some costs) and Paige soon learned how heavy apples were, but that didn’t slow her down – she figured out she could slip her arms through the handles and carry them on her back!
After we left Eckerts we had a picnic at a near by park. And like any good grandparent, I taught them a new trick. Ok, it’s not always things their parents want them to know.
When we got home it was time to get to work. We washed, peeled, cored, sliced, and made a peach and an apple pie.
We had a great day!

We had a beautiful wedding this weekend, with a lot of history in the St. Charles area. Here are a few of our favorite images.
The ceremony was held at a church where six, yes 6, generations had been married in.
Brad bought and restored a classic 1964 white Cadillac and was able to get historic plates that read “SEPT-3″
We went to Old Town St. Charles and walked around the old cobblestone streets. The next thing I knew they were dancing in the streets!
I thought it was so sweet that Julie’s dad kissed her hand when he came up for the Father / Daughter dance.
