July: A series

It has been a FUN and BUSY summer! We kicked off July by heading to Ann Arbor, Michigan for our niece Lindsey's wedding. Lindsey and Carl got married in the oldest Methodist church in Michigan...a picturesque old white church...and they had their reception under a big white tent on the lawn of the church. We arrived around lunchtime on Friday and jumped right in helping with food runs, wrangling cousins, holding new baby Lily (our other niece and nephew-in-law's new baby), setting up tables, etc. I had the super fun privilege of helping my sister-in-law decorate the cupcakes Lindsey made for the wedding. It was so much fun! Of course, I uploaded pictures in reverse order here, so we're starting with the day after the wedding, but here are a few snapshots of the fun:

The cousins in the hotel elevator....they always have so much crazy fun together!

The newlyweds, Lindsey and Carl, at the Sunday brunch...

Whitney and Dustin and new baby Lily...

At the reception they had a "picture wall" with old family wedding photos, where you could pose behind an open picture fun!

The girls showing off their moves at the outdoor reception...

Just one of the delicious cupcake selections.. yum!

Another of Lindsey's fun ideas...among the tables were mason jars holding "moustache" cut-outs glued to long sticks...made for some fun poses at the picture wall!

Our family just after the wedding.....

The girl cousins looking beautiful....

The handsome boy cousins waiting "patiently" for the pictures to be done.... :)

We had such a fun time....since Ann Arbor is part of Tim's old stomping grounds, we made sure to have our fill of Coney Dogs. We also took a drive around town to see the new football stadium. Super fun!

Next Stop: Chelsea, Michigan to see Tanya and Luman Strong and family!!
