Well, to end the crazy summer of traveling, the whole family headed out to the east coast to celebrate the wedding of my son, Alex and (his now wife!), Mary Brigid. We rented a house on a lake near Mary's home town that slept 32 of us! (Check it out here!) It was so fun and so beautiful, it was hard to ever come home! We visited Mary Brigid's family's farm and saw all the animals, enjoyed tons of fresh fish and spent our days leading up to the wedding relaxing by the lake watching the kids swim and kayak. It was glorious. We hosted the rehearsal dinner right at the rental house and had a delicious lobster bake. We arranged all the flowers for the rehearsal, the wedding bouquets and the reception, so we spent some serious time working in the garage making all those just right. They actually arrived by FedEx a day late, so we called all hands on deck. Luckily, there are quite a few of us... It was a great week and led up to the most wonderful wedding! Pictures of that to follow!
We are so blessed to be able to spend time like this as a family!

|Never too little to help around here. We don't discriminate age when we need all hands on deck!|
