This May, Grant and I went to Searcy, Arkansas for a number of reasons. We drove to Houston where we spent the night, then left the next morning in my parent’s van with them and my two younger brothers. Grant drove the whole way since my mom doesn’t like driving long distances if she can help it, and my papa was working in the car. We drove to Lufkin, Texas and ate lunch at a great restaurant where I had the most amazing bread pudding. While in Lufkin, at the restaurant, we were able to meet Jonathan(Raya’s Boy Friend) and his parents for the first time. Then we kept going on to Searcy.
We made it in around dinner time, and Roki made us amazing food the whole weekend. We were able to stay with the Ritchies who live across the street from the Robertsons. They had two cute little dogs, and above is one of them.
After the graduation, Grant and I got this great picture taken by Kira. I wanted to take advantage of Grant in his green shirt. I love that shirt, and try to get him to wear it more often. After this we went to the rehearsal dinner.
Here you can see everyone that was there for the Rehersal dinner. It was so awesome getting to see Simon’s parents and my cousin Lea. Irene my Aunt gave me this awesome Teflon sheet that I have used at least 10 times already. It is sooo cool. I think I will try and find another one like it.
Daniel and Hannah. The day was VERY chilly,but warmed up a little bit when the sun came out. For Grant and Simon, who get too hot too fast, this was perfect. For the rest of us in dresses it was cold, but perfect weather for pictures.
Mia and Ally took this flower girl thing very seriously, on the way down the isle they made sure all of their flowers were out, then they picked the ones close around up again, and threw them again. They did this during most of the wedding, and it was hard for everyone watching to not start laughing out loud.
My younger brother Jason is allergic to milk, so he drinks goat’s milk. They only had regular milk here, and this is him trying to hide that he was drinking it. He isn’t good at being inconspicuous,but I guess that is a good thing.
We had a great time, and made it back late Monday night;we are so glad we were a part of their wedding.
