The Wedding (Part II)

Amy was starving so Rex's family brought us a bit to eat before the service. She told me I better not be taking her picture. Yeah... Right... No, I'm not doing that.

Isaiah didn't want to stop eating long enough to go do the service. Everyone was outside in the garden except him (and a couple of others). We finally had to tell him that his food would be OK and as soon as we were finished he could come back and finish eating.

After the ceremony was over we did return to the building for a little cake reception before we headed out. I took Ron home to let him rest for awhile and then we headed to Rex and Amy's for the cookout. It was a lot of fun and we stayed for several hours.

Amy had changed into a pretty white dress for the cookout. Anyone coming into the house who didn't already know she was the bride, didn't have any trouble figuring it out once they saw what she had on. She looked very pretty in it, too. They did helium balloons in the tent so that's what she's doing here - tying on the strings.

All in all, it was a beautiful day and a wonderful time was had by all. Rex's family was very gracious and they have really opened their arms to Isaiah. His "nana" and "poppa" are great; his Aunt Susan, Uncle Scott, Aunt Christie, and new cousins all just treated him like he'd been in the family forever. I was very touched.

I'm glad Rex's family is welcoming Isaiah into their family. It's hard on a child, so this is nice to hear. Sounds like Rex has a generous family and the wedding turned out so well! Yeah!
