In the meantime...

In the meantime, since my last post, our son Ben married his sweetheart Callie.  It was a delightful, unique wedding just like they are.  The invitations gave the first clue that this was not a traditional wedding.
Open the envelope and you have a cloth pocket

pull the invitation out of the cloth pocket and you see the announcement of a "picnic wedding"

and finally you have a traditional form of wedding invitation.

They chose to be married at a family property on the Guadalupe River.  To get to the wedding site guests walked through the fields down to the water's edge (Pardon my cell phone photo!)

where chairs had been set up for the guests (about 150 guests!) and children.

The wedding was at dusk so the lighting is not great.  But you can see what a great site it was for their wedding.  We adore Callie and could not be happier for Ben--who is himself very happy!  What a great event.

The beginning of a happy story!
