the ring ceremony and reception were great! it looked beautiful, the food was excellent, and the turn out was really good! of course, the bride was beautiful! we did have some excitement though. we had to take megan, the bride, to the emergency room the night before the wedding. she had staff infection again. they gave her some strong antibiotics and sent her on her way. we also had to make another trip there the next night because doug , steves brother, threw carol, steves sister, into the pool and on her way in she hit a rock and it mashed a tendon. she had to go back home with crutches and a splint. the people at the hospital remembered us from the night before. we had a hilarious time at the emergency room, though, waiting for her to see the dr. it was carol (of course), doug, venetia, dougs wife, penny, steves sister, laressie, my sister, and i. we left home at 12:30 am and returned them to the hotel at 4:30 am just in time to pack up and head for the airport! the rest of the beck gang left later that afternoon. mother, laressie, sonja,my other sister, and michael , her husband, stayed until wednesday. we did a lot of shopping as we always do when we are together. wednesday afternoon after taking them to the airport, i had to have a rest! i had had quite a couple of weeks! i think it just all hit me! so i just rested that afternoon. thursday and friday i tried to get things back to normal around the house and pack. we left saturday morning to go to lincoln, nebraska for megan and travis open house there. it was on saturday night. it was very nice too. travis grew up in lincoln. we got to meet a lot of the hulses friends from there. we spent the night at mistys, doug and venetias daughter, in omaha, nebraska. then sunday morning we flew to salt lake city. steve left that afternoon to drive to colorado. he will be spending the week there on business. im staying in salt lake city. i will be spending time with megan and travis and the salt lake bunch (sally and gary, her husband and darla and mark, her husband). i will get to see megan and travis apartment, and megans school where she will be teaching, and help her set up her classroom. also i want to see them open their wedding presents which we shipped here from texas. they never got a chance to open them there. we will return home on saturday and mandy and matt and the grandbabies will be at our house. they are coming for mandys 10 year high school reunion. steve and i will be keeping the grandbabies while mandy and matt go to that. even though it hasnt been that long since ive seen the grandbabies, im still excited to see them again, of course. only 1 more daughter to get married and she says its going to be quite a while! thank goodness!
