Chip and Melissa

This past weekend we kicked off our 3 weddings, 3 weekends in September with my friend Chip's wedding to Melissa in Hudson. Chip and I became friends in Scotland when we shared the same host mom and he is one of my favorite people. I am thrilled that he is so happy and has found a great match. AT the reception we were each given an extensive booklet with information about the couple. One interesting thing I learned about him, that I didn't know, was that he was switch at birth. Luckily he was reunited with his family in the hospital after a short time.

The reception. That really says it all.

Labor day weekend

This past weekend we went up to Detriot Lakes with my family again. Here is the weekend in pictures. It was a fun, relaxing, cool weekend.

A weekend of swinging. (note how the swing is rigged up to the trees)


Pelican Lake

A beautiful day for a walk.

Family cocktail hour before dinner.

Baby's first butter sculpture

Last week we went to the state fair after work. After a year off we had a whirlwind visit of butter sculptures, animal barns, crop art and run ins with friends.

Giant pronto pup. Steve only ate about half and that clown ate the other half.

Visiting the 'oink booth' with Becky and Raymond.
