Ava did a great job as flower girl. I was a little concerned at the rehersal. Ava seemed to be a bit overwhelmed and only wanted her Gerber Puffs. On Saturday, she had a great nap, and we got her ready and she was soooo cute. She walked down the aisle as she was supposed to and then she saw the photographer that was in front of me and got a little scared. She started going back to Tom, but I called her and she then came up front. I didn't know how she would do with all of the people there, but I think she did good. I had a friend come and pick her up early at the reception because she was overwhelmed by that point.
The skies were this beautiful shade of blue, I was concerned because it had rained earlier in the day, but it ended up pretty. A little hot and a little humid, but the reception was inside so thank God for air conditioning.

We danced ALL night. My niece says that Tom and I, David and Kelly, Mark and Julie, Jim and Whitney (not pictured) earn the "Old Peoples Award for dancing." What are we old? I didn't know any of the songs after the first 3 or 4, but that didn't stop us from having a great time. I think we may have embarrassed our boys along the way. Mark and Julies kids, Matthew and the other flower girl Caitlyn were dancing fools. They went all night also. I think I learned a few moves from them! Congratulations Lauren and Ryan, May God Bless you and keep you, may He make His face to shine upon you and give you PEACE!
