After the Ceremony

 The ceremony was short, and we tried to get some pictures of the family together afterward. But that didn't go really well because the photographer needed to get photos too. They didn't do the tradition bride and groom with both sides of the family pictures and such. I tried to get some on my camera.

Rick and I. There were people on the beach and in the water who were eyeing us curiously. Weddings on the beach aren't that unusual. Neither are baptisms. We've seen both.

We had just shaken things up by kissing since Jessica and Hunter seemed to have a monopoly on kissing. But I saw our kids' reaction and started laughing. I was like, "How do you all think you got here?" not even thinking about five of them having been adopted. I really don't think about that.

This was cool.

They were are standing in a line for the the photos, and I asked them to do a line dance to liven it up.

I'd gotten a room so we'd have a place for my mom to rest before the ceremony and for everyone to change. I gave it to Hunter and Jessica for the night. There was actually a small kitchen and another room with a bed but I didn't think they'd want company!

Bry's mom got us a room for the night after our wedding too. (We were just going to go home with the kids). It was at the Knights Inn (think lots of purple) in South Bend and it isn't even there anymore. It was pretty funny and we still joke about it. Glad you got Hunter and Jessica a nicer place to stay. LOL

Thank you guys.

Megan--they went to northern GA in the mountains for a couple of night but didn't want to start out that late after the wedding. And I only needed the room for changing before the ceremony. I guess some of us could have stayed in it but it seemed more practical to let them have it.
